Tell us about your journey to interior design.
I’ve always had a passion for art and design from a young age and started my journey with an undergraduate degree in architecture. I then moved to NYC to get my masters in interior design after realizing my passion for design was more interiors focused. After my first year of grad school I had a summer internship with Celerie Kemble of Kemble Interiors and stayed with her for 7 years! I started my own firm in my hometown of Houston, Texas in 2015.
Your style in a few words:
Colorful, collected, layered, thoughtful, and comfortable.
Your forever inspo:
You recently completed a fab powder bath and included some special Weezie pieces. Can you give us a glimpse into the process of bringing this beautiful space together?
We suffered a hard freeze in February of 2021 here in Houston and many homes had pipes burst and do a lot of damage. One of my very oldest clients fell victim to water damage and it spurred some unplanned renovations. On the bright side, we were able to reinvent a few spaces that were in need of an update including this pool bathroom. We added a door to the outside for easy poolside access, added a patterned cement tile floor, a porcelain pedestal sink and bead board wainscotting for a bit of old school charm. The wallpaper and color story reference the views to the exterior of the home and bring the garden inside.
The design brief:
Line: Flat Vernacular
Pattern: Meadow - Heliotrope Wallpaper
Trim and door color: Benjamin Moore Yarmouth Blue, HC-150
Mirror: Jamie Young
Fixtures: Faucet - Watermark Haley in Polished Nickel
That sink!: Sink - Barclay Milano Console
Your Weezie pick: Piped Hand Towel with River embroidery
Before you go…
What are you reading?
I like a light read before bed to mellow my busy brain. I just finished the entire Bridgerton series and have moved onto the Secret Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab. On a Saturday or Sunday morning you’ll find me browsing the latest design magazine or coffee table book with multiple cups of coffee.
We have two new construction projects wrapping up towards the end of the year that we are excited to install, a few renovations that just started and lots of fun decorating projects in the works. There’s always something new happening every day!
Recent interiors splurge:
Does gut renovating an entire home count? Ha! My husband and I bought and renovated a home during Covid and I’m about to start another phase of decorating and adding layers. More wallpaper is on the horizon first!
Recent interiors steal:
I’m always nabbing fabulous things at auctions (or attempting to) and grabbed a giltwood roped stool and a gilded marble top table for clients just last week.
