Austin, the capital city of the Texas state is home to many beautiful lakes and rivers, including Lady Bird Lake and the Colorado River. Austin got its name from the colorful glow of lights across the mountains just after sunset.
Austin has always been a place that wanted to protect its eccentricity and diversity. That’s where the slogan Keep Austin weird came from to ensure the people of the town always felt comfortable in their skin.

Allison Jaffe Interior Design
About: As an Austin award-winning interior designer, I’m ecstatic about the opportunity to collaborate with homeowners such as yourself to create spaces where you feel most self-expressed. My gift lies in being able to intuitively tune in your vision so I can understand your unique needs and wants for space. I then translate your ideas into contractor-friendly plans that move efficiently from dream to execution. I didn’t start out in the design world. In fact, I first excelled in the sciences, pursuing a degree in Neuropsychology from the University of Pittsburgh. After graduating, I worked for a contract furniture group, which is where the idea of studying in the field of interior design first sparked. One day, I found myself admiring plans for an office and loved how it all flowed and came together. As I looked down at the lines that created the rooms, I could see how space was a perfect puzzle, a problem to be solved and I wanted to solve it. I knew in an instant, like a bulb going off in my head, that interior design was a path I had to follow.

About: Upon realizing his great deal of respect and appreciation for the perfection, detail, and preciseness of a fresh set of blueprints, Frederick S. Yandrisovitz embarked on a career in Architecture/Interior Design. He began by learning the now “dying art” of hand drafting when he was 15 years old. While concentrating most of his interest in architecture, he soon advanced and started using the computer-aided design program, AutoCAD Release 9. As time progressed, so did Frederick’s knowledge and interest towards design. He set in motion a personal goal to learn as much about construction and Jobsite management as he knew about design. He worked on-site, and with hands-on experience, he learned the many trades and talents necessary to make any sized project successful.
Frederick received his formal education from South West Texas State University (Texas State University) at San Marcos, Texas. He enrolled and declared his major to be Interior Design; Family and Consumer Sciences. Although registered and attending classes, he also continued to work in the “contracting/construction” industry to support his financial requirements and further his experience. Coinciding with his education, the knowledge that Frederick continued to acquire spanned from carpentry, electrical, and plumbing, to being a Project Supervisor of several major projects; making way for a well-rounded designer. In addition to his major, he also minored in Art and Technology. Studying the history of furnishings, architecture, art/music, and furniture design/construction, Frederick has found that he incorporates and uses his knowledge in design every day.

J. Fisher Interiors
About: I’m an Austin-based interior designer who embraces East Austin funk with the polish of Tarrytown. My designs are unique and have character. They’ve got personality and soul too, but most importantly, they’re comfortably livable with some serious depth that reflects the personalities of those who live there. Every client is different, and I’m inspired by their unique stories. These spaces aren’t just rooms: they’re little love letters to my clients. I love to take the things that make them swoon and weave them into my designs. Got a killer guitar collection? Let’s get it up on the walls. Obsessed with succulents? Let’s suck it up with a living wall and pray it gets enough sunlight to stay alive! My goal is to incorporate your quirks, talents, and passions so when someone walks into your house they’ll say, “Wow, this looks like . . . you!”
