Ryan Street & Associates

The team at Ryan Street & Associates is uber talented and creates some of the most inviting, elegant and refined interiors around. Most of the designs start with white and neutral surroundings which allows the more subtle details, like lighting, furniture and accents, to really be the focus. Each space looks so effortless but so thought out at the same time. Love, love!

Cat Mountain Residence in Tucson

Cat Mountain Residence by Cornerstone Architects is so stunning! While the whole house is perfectly put together it still has a very effortless and natural feel to it. Cornerstone made beautiful use of reclaimed wood and numerous architectural accents. They filled each spacious room with incredible furniture and eye catching prints. I love the pink bathroom!! It’s so unexpected and playful. And, I can’t forget the views! Amazing.

Black and White

Has there ever been a more perfect coupling than that of black and white? Black and white in a home works well just as black and white OR can give you a perfect background on which to build some color. Browsing black and white interiors, I found many great ideas and inspiration. Black and white will never go out of style.

Country Hill in Austin, Texas!!

I love Texas. I mean, I do live here after all. We really do have some gorgeous country and this Austin, TX home is situated right in it! Designed by Jauregui Architects, the Country Hill residence is big and beautiful, Texas style. The interior is not fussy and very classic. I am not usually a fan of exposed brick on the inside of a home but even I could live with this.

Amity Worrel – Interior Designer

While waiting for my oil to be changed, I perused an Austin specific (sorry I can’t remember the name) interior design magazine. Pages and pages of envy worthy design and I was then introduced to Amity Worrel. Amity is an interior designer in Austin, TX and I LOVE her work! She’s not afraid to use color, she chooses interesting prints and nice core pieces. Here, see what I mean??
