Perhaps an excess of wood in a retro pad conjures up images of That 70’s Show, or homes of the same amusing design. But not all retro homes are considered equal, and this residence in Austin, Texas designed by dunnam+dodson architecture certainly breaks the mold.

Creating a clear separation between spaces, a wooden box situated in the corner of the living room houses the kitchen. Simple accessories, like the cow hide rug, yellow chandelier and framed “Americana” artwork on the wall help break up the wood tones. Natural light from windows at the end of the room illuminate a cooking area that could seem dark and cramped otherwise.

For a fun lounging experience, why not hang out in the garage? This basement area, separated from the outdoors with a sliding garage door, could be the perfect place to have a party.
