Happy Monday!! and to those enjoying Columbus Day off, congrats!
In celebration of the discovery of the Americas, we have a great guest today…the very talented and beautiful Christina Canales of Canales & Co. Interiors in Austin, TX.
I know what you’re thinking…Austin is full of super talented designers. It’s true. And yet, they all manage to project their own voice and signature style. Christina is a bit of a chameleon…her projects have ranged from modern Mexican, to boho chic, to eclectic modern, then to mid century modern…and they’re all so beautiful. Her projects are such a joy to follow because she infuses so much of the client’s personality into each project, yet filters it expertly through her keen design eye. I wouldn’t have a clue how to make Muhammad Ali wallpaper work in a space, but she has done so flawlessly. Do yourself a favor and follow her on instagram. Her stories are especially entertaining; she is HILARIOUS.
I feel lucky to call her a friend because she is a friend I’ve made later in life. Not sure if you read my last post, but it gets harder and harder to make friends as you age because you just don’t have the time/ experiences to bond you. Christina is one of those people that you meet and instantly feel that you’ve known her forever. Our families spent a day wine tasting together (taking 3 kids to multiple wineries in one day is no joke) and I can’t remember having that much fun in a long time.
So yes, I feel extremely lucky to know and love this lady and to have her as a guest today.
Finally, show us your space in which you’ve incorporated some pink!
First up is this fun airstream that a client purchased to live in while remodeling her home. She wanted lots of color and we used textiles from her travels around the world and purchased a dipped dyed Persian to give the space some pop.
This bedroom was designed for my three year old at the time. I love traveling to places like Mexico and Guatemala, so I made sure to infuse all my textile finds into her room. The dresser in her room also doubles as her desk.
Thank you so much Christina for sharing your own personal experiences and beautiful work with us today! I’m so happy to know you.
