From diverse, booming cities to small towns with outsized personalities, from the neon signs of Austin to the Friday night lights of Allen, Texas has everything—including a wealth of design and development. We sent Curbed’s writers and photographers out to explore it all (that is, in addition to what we’re covering daily over on Curbed Austin).
The stories below are about how Texans are living right now: how they build, design, and furnish their homes, and how they are reshaping and preserving their cities to accommodate rising density and an influx of new businesses.
And if you’re new to Texas, we’ve got you covered, too, with a guide to the state’s best architecture and the perfect Texas starter roadtrip.
