The early bird gets the worm! I start the day with my team’s “Beyhive” meeting, where we discuss what design goals we’ve set for ourselves. We love incorporating Ivy to organize and manage our projects efficiently. Big shoutout to my team of #bossbabes – teamwork makes the dream work! (Check out that brass bee in the corner in honor of our queen Bey.) #IvyxChristineTurknett

One of my favorite things to do as a designer is visit local interior decor boutiques for inspiration and clients. Styling makes all the difference and the accessories here are to die for. There’s nothing like killing two birds with one stone, especially with this Scandinavian furniture and decor @nannie_inez! ?✨?? #IvyxChristineTurknett

Lunch stop at one of my favorite restaurants in Austin! @elizabethstreetcafe is not only adorable, it’s delicious and a must-visit if you’re in or visiting Austin. I love the green in the mint! ? ? ?? #IvyxChristineTurknett

Business meeting with the deeply stylish @internationalvelvet for our up-and-coming blog and media site! There’s nothing better than collaborating with other creatives on new ideas in beautiful spaces like this one @southcongresshotel. Look at that built-in behind us! (Fun fact: this is the same architect @hsuoffice as our Tilley Row Homes.) ???✨ #IvyxChristineTurknett
