Katharina and Paul Schuster moved to Austin, Texas from California so they could create their dream house. The result is the Austin Mod House, an eclectic and livable mix of mod detail and functional furnishings. Paul Schuster taught himself how to do a lot of the improvements to the house, and he even documented his experience in a blog linked below.

The decor in this home is resourceful and clever. The downstairs floor, for example, is a kind of mosaic created from shattered recycled glass bottles. Check out the gallery for more of the Austin Mod House.
