Palazzo Lavaca

Our time here in Austin is winding down, and it’s been a hit and miss adventure.  I finally did some decent shopping yesterday.  But right now I really want to share with you the fantastical location we hung out at for a good chunk of our trip.

Many companies at SXSW rent out homes or locations as a space for their employees to hang out and interact with attendees, as well as host events and promos.  This year, the company rented out Palazzo Lavaca as their “home base” and it is one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever been in…

Palazzo Lavaca was built in 1890 and originally served as a fire house.  But in 1942 it became home to a boot and saddlery.  Today it is available for rentals for events and photo shoots.

  1. Lovely! I spend a lot of time in ATX and have never visited there – another “must see” on my list… but after SX… Love getting out to see shows at the smaller satellite venues but just can’t tolerate downtown and Congress this week. 🙂

  2. Oh my word, it would practically take a team of wild horses to drag me away from a stunning vintage interior like that. Beautiful photos, sweet Janey, thank you very much for sharing this breath-taking location with us.

  3. What an unbelievable place, this is the most stunning interior I have ever seen! If I had my own house I would love to have a living room or library decorated like this *sigh* 🙂

    • Yeah! I really didn’t know what to expect! I guess maybe like rustic yet elegant wild west? Not really French shabby chic. We entered around the back which had some distressed wood walls and a big green wooden gate with shelves of animal skulls and bones on them. I totally spaced on taking pictures out there because it was always busy outside. All of these pictures were taken the last day after we were all pretty packed up and all of the guests had left.
