So, ever since I’ve lived in Austin [a whopping 1 3/4 years], there has been a lot of buzz about the W. It’s hopping & right where the action is on 2nd St. District, Austin. Compared to where we live, which is only a block away, this is the mansion. I thought there was too much hoopla about it until I went inside just a few weeks ago. The carpet is plush, the wallpaper is well thought of…and shut up, even the elevator plates [you know that little box where the push buttons are] has a chevron pattern! Details! Details! They’re all so important…and what?! Their fitness center has a sauna and spa…I’m so jealous!Anywho, I’m helping a friend | client with their place. Not that they need much help, this couple is young, beautiful and style-savvy. So, these are the initial mood boards I made for them. And may I say, the couple loved it..and well, with a few tweaks here & there. The inspiration? Bali, Hotel St. Cecilia, the shop Red.

It will all come together soon & I’m so excited. We just found some one-of-a-kind things at Austin Antique Mall [this antique shop is huge!]. On another note, I just lost a project I was doing in one of the downtown condos as well. Bummer, I cried on this one. Apparently, dealing with clients is harder than it looks. 🙂 See you all soon!
