Brooklyn Decker's Eclectic Texas Home Turns On the Southern Charm

Jillian Knox Finley

New mum and actress Brooklyn Decker may well be adding another hyphen to her résumé. When we took time away from the hustle of SXSW to spend a day at the Austin ranch-style retreat she shares with her tennis star husband, Andy Roddick, our interest was piqued upon learning the name of the couple’s interior designer. It’s Decker. An avid design aficionado and art enthusiast, the actress (who co-stars in season two of Grace & Frankie, streaming on Netflix beginning May 6) undertook the redesign of their sprawling five-bedroom, five-and-a-half–bath abode entirely herself, a process that involved pilgrimages to marble yards and bartering at Round Top, among other expert level exploits. What’s left is a personality-fuelled aesthetic that’s all wry humour, adept mixology, and youthful exuberance. The best part? She’s not shy about divulging her sources. This is not her first rodeo.
