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.

Beautiful!! Love the chandeliers!
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. 🙂
Wow, that is just stunningly beautiful! I can’t believe that gorgeous wallpaper, too.
WOW! What a lovely place! I just love discovering that gorgeous places like this still exist. And of course, i LOVE that boot sign!
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.
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* 🙂
So was it a total surprise seeing the interior after the relatively ordinary exterior? Love that they left the boot sign up.
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.
Thank you for your kind words about our home! We had a lovely time hosting you!
