Liz MacPhail Interiors was born from an early desire and passion to create functional and beautiful spaces that improve quality of life and make people happy.
I grew up with an infinitely talented interior designer for a mom. She taught me to appreciate travel, collecting, art, antiques and the thrill of the hunt for one-of-a-kind pieces. But form often came at the expense of function (sometimes drawers didn’t open or antique chairs broke when sat upon). I came to value function first and foremost. Finding the best design with that in mind is what I find challenging, exciting and endlessly rewarding. I believe a home that works hard for a family’s lifestyle makes life easier and happier.
I start by assessing what works, what can be kept or possibly just moved to make it work better. I get to know a client's personality. I take into consideration the existing elements and natural integrity of a home’s spaces to find the best combination of lifestyle needs, aesthetic desires and financial constraints. The majority of my clients are hardworking, budget-minded families with children. I believe in fiscal responsibility in decorating and design for my own family as well.
In addition to working with several Austin families on their decorating projects, I’ve consulted with architects and contractors on the "look and feel" of interior renovations.
Please give me a call if you would like to talk about your project. I am happy to share references.
Liz MacPhail interiors is based in Austin, Texas.
