A TEXAS COUPLE RETURN TO SET DOWN ROOTS IN OLMOS PARK

home-1In 2011, native Texans Lauren and Jay Bullock were preparing to leave New York City, where they had lived for the last decade for Bermuda, when they were asked about relocating to San Antonio instead. They home-4jumped at the opportunity to raise their young son in more familiar surroundings, a city from which Lauren’s father hailed. The stately rock homes and picturesque neighborhoods Lauren loved visiting as a child came to mind. Her son would be able to embrace the outdoors in a way their New York apartment would never permit.

The Bullocks purchased a classic 1920s H. C. Thorman-designed Olmos home-3Park rock house. Lauren was inspired to adorn it with a décor to complement the home’s straightforward, understated lines. Getting some help from high school friend Delaney Warren of Warren Interiors, Lauren began planning the house’s design with one clear image — they were finally going home — to stay. Their son’s childhood memories would be rooted there, and Lauren went about carefully planning the house with him in mind. She wanted her home beautiful and easy for entertaining friends and family, but also a “real” place where children and dogs could happily play. Lauren and Jay are finally home, and it is as beautiful and rewarding as she pictured it to be.
