Suzanne McFayden turns a Brutalist concrete modern home into an empowering work of personal expression. McFayden says that her home’s art collection is a visual expression of how she feels about the world.
She’s very happy about her world-class artwork displayed throughout this modern interior design. She draws parallels between her life and Awol Erizku’s Girl with a Bamboo Earring, which hangs next to an Apparatus sconce in her home’s entry.
Arabescato marble and cement tiles play off the poured concrete walls in the modern home‘s master bath, where there is purposely only one sink. The island countertop is antiqued mirror framed with stainless steel.
“It’s about reclaiming things that you may not feel entitled to,” she says. “As a black woman and as a divorced woman, I feel like I’m finally carving out room for myself in the world.”
Writer and philanthropist Suzanne McFayden collaborated with Paul Lamb and Ted Young of Paul Lamb Architects and interior designer Jennifer Vaughn Miller to turn a Brutalist concrete house in the hills west of Austin into a welcoming and personal family home that reflects her love of art and design.
A Haas Brothers chair and a rug picked up during McFayden’s travels in Morocco add warmth in the modern home‘s main dining space.
A moody powder room features a custom vanity made of perforated stainless steel and an Italian marble sink by Kreoo. This modern home features materials of extremely high quality and the bathroom was no exception.
