Seeing Red – Wild Haire Ranch and Lake LBJ House

Red is the preferred accent color of American vernacular architecture (think red barns). It is also the signature color of Frank Lloyd Wright, the father of organic architecture. The perfect combination of both warmth and light, red can be incorporated into virtually any style of regional modern architecture. The following two Hill Country homes illustrate its timeless appeal.

Wild Haire Ranch, designed by Mell Lawrence Architects, is located in a rural subdivision west of Austin.

Although red is utilized only as an accent color in this getaway home on Lake LBJ designed by Black & Vernooy Architects, the visual interest created by its juxtaposition against the darkness of the lake is one of the home’s defining features.
