An Austin couple you might have heard of—Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick—purchased a home here a few years ago.
The actress-model-mom of the couple (that would be Decker) is, in addition, has a passion for design, so it was natural for her to turn her take on the new digs as her new project.
When Decker was ready for the final reveal, she opened its doors to editor Jillian Knox Finley of MyDomaine, which published her story "Brooklyn Decker's Eclectic Texas Home Turns On the Southern Charm" last week.
The actress-model-mom of the couple (that would be Decker) opened its doors to MyDomaine last week to show off its new interiors—designed by none other than Decker herself.

Located a few miles west of downtown, the Decker-Roddick home was built to have a farmhouse feel, as befits its close-in-but-private, ranch-style feel. Decker, a passionate and skilled designer and art lover, dove into designing the five-bedroom, five-bathroom house's interiors like a pro.
She ventured to Round Top's legendary antique festival and tracked down a specific marble pattern to San Antonio, as well as deploying her considerable design knowledge to find perfect items online and in other cities—including a must-have vase by Austin ceramicist Keith Kreeger.
While it doesn't sound like Roddick was active in creating the design, Decker says she tends to have "masculine" tastes that bristle at anything "too precious," and that seems to jibe with the "masculine dude" she lives with.
Decker also shared with MyDomaine a number of her sources—from Etsy to Donny Miller’s Universe Series—some of which display her bawdy sense of humor, if not her inner 10-year-old.
