Going bold in the utility zone. There wasn’t room for a full-blown mudroom, so we made it work and made it fun at our #bungalow35inaustin project. Bench cushion pending and you know it isn’t boring. Fabrication and install by the wonderful team @michelleoliviadesign #mudroom #utilityroom #dropzone #familyliving #familyorganization #greencabinetry #customcabinetry #interiordesign

I designed this pair of credenzas. And @syd_furniture added to the concept. And then I modified. And he adjusted. The creative process of building something with Shota is inspiring. Thanks for being a passionate and skilled creative craftsman @syd_furniture #lizmacphailinteriors #sydfurniture #customfurniture #interiordesign #livingroomdecor 📷 @ryann_ford

The painter called. He wanted to be sure we gave him the right color for the cabinets. “This can’t be right.” #lizmacphailinteriors #sulkingroompink #paintedcabinets #pinkcabinets #theredriverhouse #confusedtradesman

Snapped this #crappyiphonepic the other day when we stopped by our clients’. It’s not styled, there’s nothing fancy on the side table, but it’s exactly how I found it that day - the guitar leaning back against the wall, the leather sofa slouched, the old Antone’s sign happily doing its thing — and it made me happy. #reallife #unstyled #livedin #familyhome #musicianslivehere #lizmacphailinteriors #vintagebungalow #originalshiplap #musicroom #familyroom #interiordesign

@anniebrontosaurus has about had it with me talking all things #theredriverhouse ... but when you’re designer AND client AND obsessed it’s hard to stop. 🤷🏼‍♀️ #lizmacphailinteriors #vintagebungalow #checkerboardfloor #linoleum #marmoleum #workinprogress #interiordesign #renovation #savethishouseforanother100years

We’ve been on a little summer break over here. But we are back and refreshed and installing a fun mix of patterns in this happy sunroom ... all on a craigslist-found, rattan settee.. #lizmacphailinteriors #sunroom #interiordesign #mixandmatch #patternplay

Went down a @1stdibs worm hole sourcing this coffee table and fell in love with the texture, pattern, color and scale. Paired with a @marcphillipsrugs for some sitting room chill. #lizmacphailinteriors #vintagecoffeetable #sittingroom #livingroom #livingroomdecor #interiordesign

The majority of our clients are parents of young kids. We always encourage them to make creating a well-appointed, master bedroom retreat a priority. Feel the zen. #lizmacphailinteriors #houstonhousedoneaustinstyke #selfcare #masterbedroom #masterbedroomdesign #master #vintagechairs #thonet

“Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all.” Helen Keller Jumping with joy to share the news that today I became my own client. I saved this 100-year- old beauty from a developer. ————///////———////////——— Too soon to talk plans but ... Watch. This. Space. #lizmacphailinteriors #theredriverhouse #vintagebungalow #craftsmanhome #renovation

Another room at our #houstonhousedoneaustinstyle This is the arts and crafts, homework, flop-in-the-corner of the world’s-comfiest-sectional and read a book room. Aka “the den.” Cool enough for grown-ups, rugged-enough for kids. Just the basics but far from boring. #lizmacphailinteriors #interiordesign #den #livingroom #darkwalls #darkfloors

During a client-install today, this little guy came home, grabbed a snack and parked it in the middle of it all. Such a compliment. A family-friendly space, equally comfortable for goldfish-snacking as it is a dinner party. #vintagebungalow #bungalow35inaustin #breakfasttable #diningroom #interiordesign #lizmacphailinteriors

Ok NOW we are done. A bittersweet moment for sure as this house was so fun to design and moreover this family got my heart and more specifically @colbyshepardhall became not just a client but a friend. BUT can’t wait to share the whole house soon! Thanks for bringing it to 💯 with me today @ryann_ford #interiordesign #lizmacphailinteriors #houstonhousedoneaustinstyle #customfurnituredesign #customfurniture #thonet #shelfie #shelfdecor #masterbedroom #crappyiphonepic #fireplace #moroccantiles

Holy Shota ... it never gets old seeing the design of my mind’s eye come to life. Installing soon at a Travis Heights Bungalow dear to my heart. @syd_furniture #travisheightsbungalow #whiteoak #customfurnituredesign #credenza #interiordesign #lizmacphailinteriors

A bathroom looking so complete at #bartonrileyinthehills we just need tp and a hand towel ... and some art 🧐 #lizmacphailinteriors #interiordesign #bath #bathroomdesign #powderroom #vintagevanity #plaster #renovation

I’m off for spring break this week. View courtesy of our very generous clients who invited me and my boys to their house in Montana. Super excited to one day add a little #lizmacphailinteriors to the already gorgeous home. Expect this corner which is absolutely perfect as it is. #montanahousedoneawesomestyle

Every bathroom in this house is unified by plaster walls, large scale Belgian blue stone floors or concrete and a vintage dresser-turned-vanity. Then the detailed selections - namely lighting and mirrors - give it personality. Case-in-point: the girls’ bath. #lizmacphailinteriors #bartonrileyinthehills #bathroom #kidsbathroom #renovation #girlsbathroom #gutrenovation #iheartclientswillingtotry

That’s a wrap on our #houstonhousedoneaustinstyle which we photographed yesterday with @ryann_ford ... who is not responsible for this crappy iPhone pic but will be responsible for all lovely photos forthcoming on this project.

We renovated this one with very little color beyond white and black but with every intention of going full-throttle in decor. Taste the rainbow of fruit flavors ... #lizmacphailinteriors #bungalow35inaustin #installmoment #interiordesign #greenvelvetsofa #originalshiplap #blackandwhiteandcolorallover #bringonthepillows #tuftedsofa
