Since 1999, I've been an Interior Designer in the Austin area. Lately, I've shifted my business to focus solely on E-Design delivered directly to your computer. With an extensive list of vendors and trade only resources, I can give you an amazing design simply online!
I stay true to the classics mixed with modern and a touch of rustic & vintage soul. I feel that your home should always be your sanctuary, and my job is to figure out what you & your family love and how to make your home uniquely yours. A home that is beautiful, comfortable, cozy and makes a statement about who you are and what sparks joy for you.
Married to the South Austin Dentist, and together we have remodeled or built 15 homes (including our current Spicewood home and our Colorado vacation rental). We share the teamwork of renovating homes, spending time with family & pets, being in Colorado or on Lake Travis. We also love to entertain with large meals at our home and always with good music playing!
Proud Mom of 3 adult kids, and "GiGi" to an 8 yr old Grandson. They are my greatest gifts and what I'm most proud of. We also have a sweet ole Labrador named Cooper and recently adopted a precious Golden Retriever and her name is Scout.
I've been designing unique spaces in the Texas Hill Country for nearly ten years, incorporating antiques, natural textiles, and modern accents in layered styles that create dramatic visual interest. A frequenter of the bi-annual Round Top antique shows, I've developed relationships with several importers of European antiques and furnishings, which I love adding to my designs for unique pops of interest. I'm married to Thomas and we've lived in the Lake Travis/Lakeway area for over 14 years. Together we have three children and travel between our Lake Travis home and our Santa Fe home, that we're currently remodeling. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, gardening and spending time with my family.
I graduated from MIU with a BFA in Interior Design. It was in school that I new I gravitated to honing my rendering skills and creating the best presentations. Competing to showcase design boards during Miami's Art Basil each year, really drove home the importance that the way a project is presented, is just as important as the design of the project. I've been working remotely with designers for over six years providing them with detailed construction documents, renderings, and presentation materials to sell their designs. By handling the technical side of a project, my designers have had more time to focus on the other aspects of design, grow their business, and be out of the office more to spend time with their families.
