Jared and Genevieve Padalecki are friends of the show and we’ve seen just a glimpse of their home in past segments, which left us wanting more! They recently graced the cover of Austin Home Magazine’s Winter Issue and shared some design inspiration with Editor-in-Chief, Lara Hallock who joined Studio 512 today.

Lara shared that the Padalecki’s main home and its guest lodge were built in a 1990s style that the team wanted to modernize and add a sense of warmth to suit the family of five (plus three dogs). It originally had a grandiose aesthetic—including a soaring entryway with chandelier—that just didn’t fit the Padaleckis’ vibe. In addition, Lara shared a few fun facts about the home.
