Austin-based interior designer Ann Edgerton remodeled her family house on the Llano River in Texas “off highway 29, between Llano and Mason,” she says. The house was initially a simple prefab home that she remodeled in 2010 with an added bedroom, large back porch, and screened porch. Edgerton designed the screened porch with a soft bohemian look using vintage rattan furniture, Moroccan accents, and bright textiles. “I wanted to create a place you can grow into with new textiles and plants,” she says. Here’s a closer look at some of Edgerton’s ideas and similar sources to recreate the look.
