Style My / Guest Bedroom

Post 1 - Room Design

Now that holiday guests have come and gone, a guest room refresh may be in order to usher in a new year of hosting in style. This chic space is just the ticket for welcoming friends and family; a bright, energetic space with graphic textiles and cool metallic accents is definitely a respite from your average hotel suite. Add a few guest room essentials like a sleek carafe and scented candle, and your visitors may just overstay their welcome!

Best Of 2014 / Interiors By Stone Textile


2014 was quite the year interior wise.  I was lucky enough to work on many design projects in Austin and throughout the county with our Edesign feature.   I wanted to share a few of my favorite design moments with you as the year comes to a close.  Big thank you to my amazing clients for letting me into their homes this year.  I have enjoyed working with each and every one of you and am very proud of what we accomplished together.  There are big things in store for 2015 and I will be back to taking regular clients starting in early May after my maternity leave.  Please email me at to discuss any Spring / Summer 2015 projects.  Happy New Year!  xx Elizabeth


Having my home featured in Lonny Magazine’s October issue was a highlight.  Living Room + Dining Room featured above.

Love This House / A Palm Springs Vacation Home


When I lived in LA we took many trips to Palm Springs.  I fell in love with the desert town and we now joke that we want to retire there.  It is also a vintage furniture wonderland.  Fashion designer Corey Lynn Carter’s vacation home was recently featured in Elle Decor and I had to share it.  She created a unique space, full of vintage finds, in only 6 weeks! Here are some of my favorite images:

Love This House…


Interior Designer Tamara Kaye-Honey has always been a great source of inspiration for me.  I love her aesthetic.  She has a way of creating  spaces that are so unique and always keeps the comfort factor in mind with out loosing the cool factor.  I loved seeing her California family home featured in Lonny Magazine–so good.  Here are a few of my favorite images–make sure to check the rest out on





Isn’t this master bath amazing?  I love how they transformed the attic into their master suite.  Beautiful.

Love This Room / Cool + Comforable


Well, that was quite the blog hiatus…things have been crazy around here getting ready for the baby (6 week countdown!)  and wrapping up all of our interior projects.  Not to mention — shipping all of our holiday orders!  Maybe it’s because I am almost 9 months pregnant…but I have been really into the look of comfortable living rooms with an overall cool vibe.  Here are a few that caught my eye…

Love This House / The Black Apartment by Romain Richard

Last week I posted the photo above on our Instagram.  You guys seemed to really like it so I wanted to share the whole apartment with you today.  The space is designed by Romain Richard and the walls are painted primarily in black.  I am a big fan of using dark paint colors so I really love the look of this apartment.  There are such beautiful textures used throughout that makes the space feel warm and inviting.

We made it!  I am so excited to share the master bedroom One Room Challenge reveal with you today.  It has been a crazy design filled 6 weeks—make sure to check out previous posts here (Week No. 1, Week No. 2, Week No. 3, Week No.4, Week No. 5).  Thank you for all of your sweet comments and encouragement along the way.  The room really turned out to be one of my favorite spaces.  Now, let’s get to the photos…(sources listed throughout)


Big thank you to ORC sponsors, Lamps Plus, Minted, and Wayfair
I loved how the pieces we chose from these fabulous design sites turned out.  Jonathan Adler Brass Ceiling Pendant / Lamps Plus, Artwork above the bed / Minted, Patterned Duvet / Wayfair


As you know I love sourcing vintage furniture and accessories for my clients.  At the beginning of the ORC, I took a little road trip to Dallas and found some amazing pieces for this space.  The nightstands above + the chrome lamps are from Scout Design Studio.   See their transformations (week No. 3 + week No. 4).  The bed is from CB2 and I just love how it looks against the Storm Print Wallpaper by Lindsay Cowels.


The diamond shaped mirror is vintage from Chairish.  We spray painted is matte black .

The faux fur stool is from Home Goods and the marble + gold planters are vintage.




The curtains are custom made by Bolt Fabrics.  I love the pop of color.  The mini stool is vintage and reupholstered in a blue marbled fabric.


The armoire is vintage (such a great find!), artwork is from ORC sponsor Minted, black+ gold console table is vintage.

We got a little crafty  and used the extra wallpaper to line the insides of the armoire.







The pillow mix we went with is one of my favorite parts of the space.  The mix includes: Kelly Wearstler Feline pillows , Stone Textile Tie Dye Pillows, and one beaded pillow from Home Goods.


What the space looked like 6 weeks ago…


And what is looks like now…



A special thank you goes out to Linda from Calling It Home for asking me to be a part this design adventure.  We had a lot of fun and are up for round two!  You must check out what the other designers have done.  I cannot wait to read through everyone’s reveal posts.  I am so impressed by what this group has accomplished in 6 short weeks!  You can also follow along on Instagram using #oneroomchallenge

Modern Bungalow / The Kitchen + Outdoor Living Space

Elizabeth Mollen_Kitchen 5

At the beginning of the month, our Austin home was featured in Lonny Magazine’s October makeover issue.  The kitchen was in bad shape when we purchased our house last year.  We were dealing with lime green walls, dated cabinets + fixtures, and some unattractive backsplash tile.  We did not have to totally gut this kitchen but, we did need to make some cosmetic changes to the space.  See the before + after photo (taken from the same spot) below.  We painted the walls + peninsula white, added shelving, demoed the original backsplash and replaced it with marble subway + geometric tiles, replaced the pendant lighting, painted the wood cabinets BM Snowfall White, and replaced the hardware with brass pulls.  It was a process and we are very happy with the new look.  It is amazing what paint can do to a space right?


Kitchen Sources:  Paint:  BM Snowfall White + Ebony King (dark walls), Tile: The Tile Shop, Stools: From Target and spayed matte black with gold detail,  Pendant Lighting: CB2, Accessories:  Vintage + Barney’s New York.

To finish up the lower level I also wanted to share our outdoor space with you.  During the house hunt, it was important for us to find a place with an outdoor entertaining space.  This deck is perfect for relaxing + entertaining.

The One Room Challenge / Week No. 5

photo 2-1

Welcome to week No. 5!  This One Room Challenge has gone by incredibly fast–I cannot believe we are already planning our little photo shoot.  If you are just stopping by make sure to catch up  and see what we have accomplished so far (Week No. 1, Week No. 2, Week No. 3, Week No. 4).  This week was all about accessories, my favorite part of the design process.   I had a lot of fun accessorizing this space.  Above, you can see that we are using the Kelly Wearstler Feline fabric, in black,  mixed with a few Stone Textile pieces for pillows.

The brush stroke duvet cover from ORC sponsor Wayfair
is incredible in person.  I also picked up our custom curtains and hung them this week, I am so glad I went with this deep turquoise color opposed to black.  The beaded pillow + decorative box is from Home Goods + the copper woven mini pillow is from our Stone Textile shop.

I also picked up our little vintage brass stool from the upholsterer –the pop of blue will be really nice against the darker curtains.

Our marble planters are planted and ready to go for the photo shoot.  Lets hope I don’t kill them before the weekend.  Love the marble against the B+W Storm Wallpaper by Lindsay Cowels.

We said goodbye to the huge ceiling fan and replaced it with this beautiful Jonathan Adler  fixture from ORC sponsor, Lamps Plus.  SUCH. A. DIFFERENCE.

The black diamond shaped mirror was hung as well…

My assistant, Audrey, completed yet another perfect DIY project.  We used the extra wallpaper to spruce up the vintage armoire. I love the rich brown with the black + white pattern.
