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.

Check out the design reveal!

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!

THE SILAPACHAI SPRUCE

THE SILAPACHAI SPRUCE

After moving from an apartment to a quaint duplex in the gorgeous Zilker neighborhood, the Silapachai's needed some help getting re-inspired by their new (and smaller) living room. The original footprint of their furniture just didn't quite transition into the new space as well as they were hoping... So, they enlisted my help and we went to work to develop a Spruce Kit design that would create a functional space for entertaining! Check it out!

MODERN MANTLE | 3 WAYS

MODERN MANTLE | 3 WAYS

Fireplaces are such a focal point of any home! Not only are they traditionally the marker of where a family gathers, over time their presence has sort of evolved into this pedestal where homeowners can show off their unique personalities through their favorite knick-knacks, collections and photos. Check out this recent ‘Sneak Peek’ transformation I did for this couple’s modern mantle!

SUES PLAYROOM SPRUCE

SUES PLAYROOM SPRUCE

Get ready for a whole lot of cuteness with this behind the scenes reveal of a playroom spruce for a growing Austin-based family! The Sues family dreamed of this room becoming a family gathering place to spend quality time together with their children. It previously functioned as a reading room for mom, Kaileen. But, the original design grew outdated as the Sues began transitioning their life to a family of four. 

THE MARTELL SPRUCE

THE MARTELL SPRUCE

Right before the holidays I finished an exciting Spruce Kit for a sweet client, and thought it would be fun to share the design with y'all! I'm calling this living and dining room transformation the "Eclectic Marfa Retreat," based on the bold mix of colors and natural finishes! One of the first things my client mentioned to me when we sat down to chat was how much she loved color. She was also inspired to incorporate collections from her travels and to create an overall cozy feeling to her open-plan living space.
