Share a fun fact about your brand or your story/ tell us about your products: 

Before heading to college, my dad told me I should think about majoring in Graphic Design. Being a stubborn teenage girl, I quickly turned that idea down. Ha! A few years after graduating college, I realized he may have had a good point. :) So I went back to school for a graphic design, and that was the start of Texture Design Co! Lesson learned, sometimes parents have really good advice.

I’m a huge fan of the beautiful weavings by Sunwoven. I love Erin’s use of color; she puts together the yummiest color combinations! We have one of her pieces in our living room, and it really makes me smile. We now carry these weavings in our store, too!

What’s your favorite Charleston Restaurant? 

Basil is my “tried and true”! It was one of the first restaurants I visited when I moved to Charleston 11 years ago, and it is still a top favorite. Their Thai food never gets old!

What is your favorite song to jam out to while you create products or look for inspiration?  

It changes regularly, but this week I’ve listened to ’Say Something’ by Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake on repeat.

What is your favorite product you offer right now and what was the inspiration behind it/why will people love it? 

A Charleston Baby’s First Year Book will forever be a favorite project! I started working on it when we found out that we were expecting our first child. I wanted to create a baby book that I was excited to fill out, and I’m so happy with how it turned out. The pages are full of colorful illustrations of Charleston, and I think it is the perfect baby gift for new parents in the Lowcountry!

Tell us about your products and the process behind creating them.

All of my products are first designed with a watercolor painting and then I bring those designs to life through various different types of products; cards, prints, wrapping paper, mugs the list goes on!  I’m hoping to add more print designs + products in the coming year!

Coastal Crust in Mt. Pleasant… the salad, the pizza, the wine, the atmosphere- perfection!

I’ve always really loved everything that Suite 33 creates - I have two of her stockings hanging on my mantle right now and I just smile every time I look at them!

I really love all genres of music but my jam is definitely Janis Joplin mainly because in my mind I can belt it out just like her - haha!

Tell us about your favorite product you offer right now and the inspiration behind it.

Right now I’m really loving our 2018 calendar! This product is extra special because my husband made the display blocks that come with each calendar! I always love getting a new calendar so I can see all the fun things I have planned in the year ahead!
