Sarah, Van Alstyne
“Our greatest joy lies in helping our clients love their lives at home. We are a tight knit small biz who truly care for one another and (lovingly) push each other to be at our best. Also, there will be tacos."
Officially kicked off in 2016 by Tara with a goal of helping friends and family love their homes + generate some positive cash flow to take the kids to Chick-fil-A, Tara Lenney Design is a Dallas based Interior Design studio with a strategic brain, creative spirit, and servant’s heart that has now served more than 300 clients.
Basically, we get to create incredible, beautiful, livable homes + the occasional boutique office/retail shop/multi-family clubhouse and have a LOT of fun while doing it.
We serve dozens of clients a year, most of them repeat, because of the amazing level of service and experience we pour into each project.
Our true passion is in making Interior Design accessible for both long-time home design appreciators and people who may have never thought to bring in an expert. We guide them through the construction and furnishings process, holding their hands, leading them through all phases of the design process, and give them a more incredible space than they could ever have dreamed up. All while striving endlessly to make their experience an enjoyable one.
We're a small company made of up about half-a-dozen hard-working, proactive, gif-sending creatives who want to help people love life at home (and enjoy sipping whiskey while we do it). We value doing our very best work, making life more beautiful through great design, and creating from a place of purpose and intention.
Our greatest joy lies in helping our clients love their lives at home. We are a tight knit small biz who truly care for one another and (lovingly) push each other to be at our best. We love our weekly Workday Monday gathering because we truly believe that the best solutions are forged together. We aren't afraid to go back to the drawing board and iterate, knowing that the best version of something isn't always uncovered in the first try and that there's so much learning to be had along the way. We never settle for a basic regurgitation of a Pinterest Board or what's trending and always push ourselves to create something that's original, tailored to our clients, and Instagram-worthy. Everything we do at TLD is held to that standard of precision of excellence because we believe that our clients deserve the absolute best for their investment.

Time Management skills are critical. We routinely are running 30 projects at any given time. The ability to batch your time and work effectively in a fast-paced environment is essential. We are realistic with our workload (we don’t do late nights or weekends – life balance is prioritized) and therefore expect a high level of work from everyone on our Team while they are TLD-ing.
