hi, I'm Steph!
CREATIVE - OPTIMIST - DREAMER - ADVENTURER - FRIEND
I am a born and raised Austinite with a down-to-earth fun-loving attitude. I enjoy spending time outside with my husband Leif in the woods, at the beach, or at the race track. We have a cat named Riley, dog named Ruger and a boa named Zef, they are quite entertaining and keep us laughing. We also enjoy doing arts & crafts, watching movies and gardening together. I have a thing for wine, champagne and cheese. I am very involved with the design community and love to be a part of a team. I can honestly say, I am living my BEST life, and I can't wait to see what's next!
AUTHENTICITY - CONNECTION - QUALITY - SUSTAINABLE
PERSONALIZED - REFINED - INTENTIONAL - UPLIFTING COMFORTABLE - NATURAL - TIMELESS - NOSTALGIC
I absolutely love my job. I get to meet so many amazing people and establish
authentic connections with my clients and vendors. I get to express myself
creatively, utilize my design skills and apply my unique point of view to interpret the best solution to capture the personality, vision, and lifestyle of my clients. I believe in designing spaces that feel special and simplify life. Drawing inspiration from nature and the world around me, I enjoy juxtaposing old and new elements, mixing metals, and blending soft neutrals and rich color to create the perfect atmosphere to relax and live life. I promote the use of natural and responsible materials that support the health and wellbeing. Design impacts lives.
