Milo and Thayer were long time business partners and worked together designing, building,...

Let’s Talk About… Wallpaper!

We all remember the days of absolutely hideous wallpaper… Every time my parents were house hunting, “NO WALLPAPER” was one of the first things on their list. The scraping and tearing and re-painting, ugh. It was such a hassle and completely terrifying how bad some of it was. However, we’re blessed to be living in a time of some great wallpaper. I...

Top 10 Favorite Lucite Furniture

Ahhhhh, lucite. The trend of the decade- and for so many great reasons. Because these pieces are completely transparent, they really open up the space that it lives in. This is why they’re perfect for smaller scaled rooms or even a room that doesn’t receive that much light. We all know the idea of placing mirrors up high in a typically smaller, darker room...

August Paint Colors

Aaaand back to school we go! Our color inspiration for the month of August comes from the one & only- University of Texas. This campus is by far one of the most gorgeous we’ve visited, but of course we’re a little biased. It’s nestled in a fabulous part of downtown, and it’s surrounded by ridiculously old trees that cast the prettiest shadows....

Dorm Daze

Dorm living has a fluster of emotions and responsibilities. Living in a cramped 15×15 room with another person you’ve probably never met, combining your sleep, study, and dining all in one space? Sounds a little miserable. BUT, it can be accomplished and there’s a lot of ways to make it much simpler for yourself. Because the space is so little,...

Designing for the Future: Trends We Need to Consider Now

In my Intro to Interior Design class in college, I learned that as the economy changes, so do fashion and interior design trends. Of course as we discussed this topic, it made perfect sense because we’re simply accommodating to our surroundings. However, it never crossed my mind (before this class) that such UN-artistic ideas and qualities, actually have...

Get the Look: Effortless Bohemian

This style is the perfect embodiment of “California Dreamin'”. When I see a home that inhibits the bohemian, southern cali feel, I can’t help but feel some envy. Who doesn’t love shaggy furs and vintage rugs?? The look is effortlessly chic while also not being the least bit pretentious. But getting that style just right is tricky because you...

July in Austin, TX is certainly heating up quickly… and what better way to enjoy it than some unique, cooling adventures through the Hill Country. One of our favorite hidden spots is the Narrows in the Blanco River. Unless you’re from Texas, you’d probably never expect something so exotic looking to be right here in the great state. This photo has some...
