Learn Mischief of Old Inspires Spring’s Playful Self-Discovery

Springtime at the Mansion brings a special meaning, especially as hints of warmer weather conjure up anticipation for a rush of beauty and rebirth. In the Spring, the days get a little longer. Light shines through the beveled window panes at a new angel that awakens the greenery and the energy of almost every living thing. It’s in this season we’re reminded of the fun filled days that transpired in this same sunlight, almost a century ago.

Learn The Commodore’s Original Austin Spirit

E.H. Perry gave much to the City of Austin throughout his years as a successful entrepreneur and civic leader. It can be argued that Perry’s own personal character served as a template for Austin’s: it’s one of vision, imagination, and humility. Perry saw details and possibilities in everything, and he wasn’t afraid to take action. Like Perry, in all his accomplishments that remained understated, Austin keeps itself authentic while earning fame as a hotspot for world technology industries and other market drivers. Get to know a few of Perry’s signature traits and you’ll begin to see a bit of the Commodore in the personality of his beloved city.

Do Auberge ArtSalon - A Reverberation

It is often said that artists hold up a mirror to society. If this is the case, then their art serves as a prism through which we can view the times we live in, often from an entirely new perspective. In the Auberge ArtSalon series, six emerging artists will turn their own unique gaze on six iconic Auberge retreats to create art installations that reflect each property’s individual character, setting, heritage, and place in the world today.

Go An Insider’s Visit to Round Top

I’ve been standing outside the doors to the Round Top Antiques Fair for 30 minutes, but if you’re not here before the doors open, you’ll miss your chance on the best items. I’ve been coming to Round Top since I was a little girl, when my mother, aunt, and I would drive over from Louisiana. Since those early days, Round Top, just an hour and 15 minutes outside of Austin, has evolved from a flea market into a European antiques fair, with big-name dealers coming in from all around the world to sell their rare collectibles.

Do Sweet as Peaches

My husband and I are driving the backcountry roads that wind through the Texas Hill Country, heading to Fredericksburg. An hour and a half west of Austin, the country drive takes us past Texas Longhorn cattle with three-feet-long horns, and enticing mom-and-pop antique shops that will have to wait for another time. On these last days of summer vacation, we are on a mission to eat the peaches that Fredericksburg is famous for. That rose-gold fruit has always represented summer to me - the long, slow days of youth that stretch out forever - and I’m nostalgic for the floral fruit.
