Layering rugs on top of one another is a trend that’s been making its way into the spotlight over the last few years. At first, I had mixed feelings about this trend but, as I see it more and more in projects, I’m really digging the eclectic feel that it can bring into a space.

I have always been in awe at the growth of Austin. Minus the near-decade I spent in Los Angeles after college, I have called this weird Texas city home since 1989. I’m one of the rare originals who doesn’t mind the city’s explosive growth. I cherish the diversity and culture that the expansion brings to the city, and being a part of that is so exciting.
