MEET TEAM TLD
I’m Tara, and I want to live in a world where design isn’t reserved for the ultra-rich. My goal is to make home your happy place by designing it uniquely for you and your family. It's not about replicating your Pinterest board, it's about creating a beautiful, functional home that fits you.
In my 15 years working as an Interior Designer, I have been creating happy homes and workspaces in Dallas, Texas (and beyond). I started this business with the humble goal of of being able to spend more time with my boys and earn just enough money so I wouldn’t have to clip coupons anymore. Well, it worked. As it turns out, this idea of "design for real, everyday people" resonated with a lot of folks.
With my special blend of design savvy, strategy, empathy, and intuition, I strive to bring a rare perspective to the design process. More than just designing beautiful spaces, I am passionate about creating individualized solutions tailored to the lives of our clients.
I work side-by-side with my husband/business partner/photographer, Steven and my design "Girl Friday" Kristen. When I’m not designing, you can find this TCU alum eating an absurd amount of tacos, drinking iced coffee (or whiskey), and hanging with my three tiny design interns - more commonly known as my kids.
If that sounds something you can get on board with, I invite you to dive in with us. Let's get started.
I’m Kristen, a registered Interior Designer, style enthusiast, friend maker, and midwesterner turned Texan. I assist Tara in all things design to bring your dreams to life.
My design background started in corporate office design where I worked with some of the best clients around, learning to pay close attention to detail and furthering my love for branding and graphic design. From there, I went to multi-family and hospitality which created a love for mixing textures, pattern, and color in unique ways. In between all of this, I have been a graphic designer and a personal stylist for Stitch Fix! You could say I've done a little bit of everything.
Outside of the workday, you'll find me with any combination of the following things: community, a good cup of coffee, my two beloved cats, Eddie and Benzie, and/or my nose in a book.
I'm Steven, a lawyer turned photographer and business manager. I help those ladies up there with the behind the scenes business so they can do what they do best (which, let me tell you, is not math).
Most days you can find me working from home, editing photos, managing orders for our clients, and keeping the wheels turning.
When I'm not busy working on the business, you might catch me cycling, listening to classic rock, and enjoying a craft beer from my favorite leather chair.
