Hey, we're TLD

About 10 years ago I left a pretty sweet position at a large, prestigious design firm because I was burned out and wanted to spend more time with my boys. Our family income took a huge hit with my "early retirement" and we were a little bit house-poor. But on the plus side I found myself with something I'd never had before.

T I M E .

So I started helping friends and family with their design projects, hoping to make enough extra cash to be able to take the kids to Chick-fil-A without having to check my bank account first. I began helping my friends and neighbors transform their homes to serve their families and their unique lifestyles. Most had never worked with an Interior Designer and didn't know that it didn't have to be intimidating or difficult. In fact, it could be really fun.

OUR STORY BEGINS

and then it grew from there...

With chicken nuggets.

The Dream Team

ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE

We believe...

In livable beauty.

That done well, your home can be a source of calm, inspiration, and sanctuary.

And that feeling will spill over into every area of your life.

Your home, your gifts, and your Scotch are best shared with friends.

WE'RE NOT ABOUT:

Doing things just because they're pretty. Everything has to function first.

Cookie cutter design solutions or being "on trend".

YOU CAN FIND US:

Around Tara's dining table on Workday Mondays, collaborating on projects, driving around Dallas to source for projects, and eating homemade bread.

Our special sauce:

a blend of experience, strategy, empathy, and intuition. 

We partner with our clients to do more than just designing beautiful spaces, we create individualized solutions tailored to the lives of our clients.
 
Oh, and we make it really enjoyable.

- OUR SHOP -

HA&Co. horiz black.png
As Interior Designers we are constantly on the hunt for beautiful, affordable art for our clients’ homes, but often found that art was either: very beautiful and therefore expensive and not in their budget, or very affordable…but not very pretty.
This is where Humble Abode was born.
Combining my love of making with my passion for Interior Design led us to create and curate beautiful, affordable art to fill our client’s walls. From abstract landscapes to graphic art and vintage pieces, everything in our shop runs through the filter of our design experience. Pieces that fit in with modern color palettes, that feel collected and “lived in”, and are made to look great inside your home.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

"We hired TLD based on a recommendation. We have worked with other designers in the past and we truly appreciate both your creative and business acumen. Not all creative people have the organizational skills to run a business, but you do both so well! 

We are already brainstorming our next project and TLD will be our first call!
