BACKYARD BISTRO REVEAL

BACKYARD BISTRO REVEAL

The Kalman’s dreamed of this outdoor space becoming a gathering place for friends & family. Leigh Ann is a wonderful hostess and deserves the cutest backdrop to host all her Spring Soirées!

She had expressed during our in-home consultation that she had been wanting to find a way to bring a seamless design with her newly Spruce’d dining room and kitchen (stay tuned!) outdoors. I think it turned out pretty perfect, and I’m 99% Leigh Ann agrees. You can shop this entire Spruce Kit with tons of shoppable images on my blog.

BEHIND THE SCENES | LOCALE "APARTHOTELS"

Who else loves to live like a local whenever they visit a new city?

Short-term, non-hotel rentals are becoming increasingly popular as we realize the benefits of immersing ourselves in the neighborhoods and communities locals frequent. In my opinion, it’s the best way to learn and explore a new place! And companies like, my client, Locale are working to create this opportunity for visitors and vacationers.

Check out a behind-the-scenes on the interior design and styling I did for their newest Austin rentals!

GENDER NEUTRAL NURSERY SPRUCE

GENDER NEUTRAL NURSERY SPRUCE

This was my very first nursery to design, and it’s safe to say that I’m feeling a little baby fever after finishing this calm, whimsical and oh-so cute room! I’ve done a few designs so far for kids and teens. But, this project in particular was a fun challenge, because my clients wanted to keep the gender of their new baby a complete surprise.

ALISON'S TEEN ROOM SPRUCE

ALISON'S TEEN ROOM SPRUCE

I was so excited when my cousin called me up to ask me to help with her 12-year-old daughter Alison's bedroom. They were already planning to update the space, but Allison was adamant about switching things up from the rest of the home's shabby chic style. You know teenagers—always wanting to follow in the opposite footsteps as their parents. 😂

Check out the final fun + modern design!
