Enjoy some pics and details from a newly completed home in Lakeway, Texas.  The homeowners are previous clients of mine.  Do you remember the Lakeway remodel project?  The same clients sold that house the first week it was on the market, after we updated it.  Like me, they loved the Lake Travis area, so they  bought the lot next door!  Months later, is this new Lakeway home on the gorgeous golf course  and I’m excited to share it with you!

Three pots that make a statement as you enter….

Barnwood finish on the kitchen island . Notice the built-in paper towel holder? 🙂

You know I love open shelving….

In the Powder Room, LOVE LOVE the new neutral metallic grasscloth from Schroeder in Austin:

And the very cool cabinetry we designed with the quartz countertop:

Romantic Moroccan lighting!

….and just a few days ago, I styled the kitchen/living area:

The agave painting below isn’t hung yet, and it’s resting on an antique sugar  mold.  But we’ll share BETTER pics when Christin takes photos in late March!

Design challenge? The niches the architect created above. I”m hunting for the right pieces that don’t fight with the pattern of the stone fireplace, and don’t add too much clutter. There’s a lot of stuff in the shelves, and so you don’t want a lot going on up in the niches either. Solution? I’m hunting for a pair of great architectural pieces or reclaimed wood art, or vintage signs.  If you see anything, let me know! I promise to share the completed rooms with BETTER pictures this month.

Do you feel like this lady sometimes??

I’ve been juggling a lot lately and trying to find balance too. Balancing time for family, friends, exercise, work, decorating my own home, starting that garden and just having time to catch up! How does Martha Stewart do it all??

Answer: A great staff!

 Right now, it’s just me and PT asst. help from sweet Christin. Christin also works another job in San Antonio  though, and so I find the need to either slow down on projects we take, OR add another assistant or intern!  If you have great computer skills such as Photoshop, CAD, that sort of thing…then email me!  Do you have previous experience helping a designer?  Do you live in the Austin or San Antonio area?  If you live in the Lake Travis area, it  would be even better! But alot of this work can be done from the convenience of your computer.  Are you amazing with any of these qualities: design boards, love running errands, great on administrative skills, Quickbooks, and are extremely organized ? If so, email me and tell us how you feel you could help us grow and benefit by having you on our team! 

I’m off for a few days to enjoy some much needed family time for Spring Break, but would love to hear from you! If you need help with your home or would love for us to help you via E-Design, please contact us!  Click HERE for our contact info.
