Well-done, thank you, high-five and we like your style @preservationaustin ... Saving these homes is challenging, worthwhile and wholly gratifying work. Welcome to the club, and stop by and see us sometime neighbor 👋🏼 #anotherredriverhouse #theredriverhouse #preservation #historicpreservation #preservationaustin #streamlinemoderne

Happy, fun-filled Friday ... with a happy, fun-filled room we recently completed. #lizmacphailinteriors #interiordesign #designinspo #livingroom #chesterfieldsofa #familyroom #familyroomdecor 📷 @ryann_ford

Thanks to @supplyshowroom for a happy, holiday kickoff last night. And for helping us source this awesome @stfranktextiles fabric to go with our $50 craigslist-find, rattan daybed. This might be our favorite kind of designing ... #highlowdesign #upcycle #lizmacphailinteriors #interiordesign #sunroom #patternplay #fiddleleaffig 📷 @ryann_ford

Just a couple days in the office this week before @anniebrontosaurus and I cut out to focus on family. Much to be grateful for here at #lizmacphailinteriors including this lovely fall view from my new office.

Our client shared with me her boys won’t use this tiny powder room tucked under the stairs...”too scary.” As a mom of boys myself, I’d say it’s a win to know your guests can enter the powder room with zero threat of little boys having been in there prior. . . . #interiordesign #powderroom #powderroomdesign #wallpaper #apparatusstudio #rebeccaatwood #lizmacphailinteriors

Without client supervision, I’m prone to stripes in crazy ceiling configurations. #theredriverhouse #lizmacphailinteriors #silkandsagedesign #farrowandball #wallpaper #darktrimwork #farrowandballrailings #bathroom #powderroom #interiordesign #designinspo #vintagebungalow #preservationaustin

Today we photographed this sweet house (this is a crappy iPhone pic!) and wonderful project we’ve been working on for the past several years (gut renovation, second story additions + full interiors are not for the faint of heart!). Can’t wait to share the good photographer pics and more of this Austin bungalow gem. #bungalow35inaustin #lizmacphailinteriors #interiordesign #austindesign #austinbungalow #vintagebungalow #gutrenovation #restoreaustin #secondstoryaddition #whitehouses

Starting off the week with a look back at a room we did for a sweet boy who loves books and Minecraft and whose mom loves wallpaper. 💓 #lizmacphailinteriors #houstonhousedoneaustinstyle #bedroom #interiordesign #kidsbedroom #boysbedroomdecor #wallpaper

It’s past midnight and I’m still awake. If you know me, this is rare. I’m an early-to-bed, start working at 5 am (not gonna lie sometimes 4 am) kinda girl. For me, it’s how single, working mama flows best. But tonight I’m wired. Tomorrow we move into our new studio office. And by new, I mean 100-years-old. This house is far from perfect, and yet, I love every inch of it. We met online (modern day love story) 8 months ago. 5 months ago I saved it from certain demolition. 4 months ago I closed on it. And the past 120 days I have spent saving fixing renovating restoring adoring appreciating creating evaluating spending innovating braving pushing and believing. I can’t sleep. Because while the foundation is solid and the paint is pretty, the wallpaper is up and the sink is resurfaced — the next chapter is just about to begin. I think when you finally decide to live #inthearena you wanna spend every minute of it there. More to come. Wish me luck. Pray for me. And then, come visit. . . . . . #theredriverhouse #interiors #interiordesign #lizmacphailinteriors #austindesign #vintagebungalow #renovation #restoration #watchthisspace #moretocome #getonwithitalready

Hate to brag but I love to brag on this house. On time. On budget. I love and am grateful for all the tradesmen. GC + Client + Designer = Heaven. Have I been obsessive? Am I known to just sit over here and take it all in? Is there big news coming soon? Hells to the yeah. #theredriverhouse #lizmacphailinteriors #comingsoon #thearena #brenebrownupinhere

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.
