Doom Scrolling is 2020. That’s why we’re making 2021 the year of happy home scrolling. As our dreams of ever returning to normal fade, we find rebirth in our homes and other buildings in our beautiful city.

We rediscover the rich history of our neighborhood casitas while taking a break to walk the dog. We spend money on accent pillows, throws and new colors instead of going out and office clothes. Although we cannot individually control external factors that set our world in motion, such as COVID-19, foreign policy or international news, we can control how we feel in our home, the environment we create as a place away from everything can.

San Antonio’s architecture leans in some places on Spanish colonial times and in others on a modern feverish dream. In terms of design, our climate and the large natural resources in the vicinity of our city enable us to integrate nature directly into our living and working spaces.


We’ve rounded up five scroll-worthy Instagrams highlighting interior design and architecture in San Antonio and Texas as a whole to inspire you as you blend in with the rest of your life from home.

Ryan and Emily Travis

For lovers of bygone eras, Alamo Abodes – a relatively recent report – highlights historic homes in some of the city’s most architecturally rich areas, such as Alta Vista and Dignowity Hill. Ryan and Emily Travis decided to document historic homes across San Antonio while walking their dog, resulting in a site that has grown rapidly in recent weeks.

And the makers not only flatter huge historical villas or old houses in perfect condition, ready for a real estate agent. “The feedback has been really positive, a lot of people in these neighborhoods are very proud and a lot more people from ‘out of the loop’ have no idea of ​​the beauty – restored or not – that’s down here,” says Ryan.
