It's rare that we come across a decorative accent or detail that can be easily integrated throughout the home—seamlessly existing in just about every room. But when we do, you can count on the fact that we'll be going all out, investing (read splurging), thrifting, and styling our way to our heart's content.

Teal walls, a leopard-print rug, and statement lighting that serves up style—this colorful Austin home
