With an eye for color and detail, Heather Toolin has been designing custom residential (and commercial) interiors in the Austin Texas and surrounding areas since 1996. Heather’s special attention to her clients help create spaces that reflect the unique personality and style of each individual homeowner.

One of the most important attributes of a designer is the ability to listen and interpret the styles and overall goals of a client and translate those into a well-designed space that reflects the lifestyle and vision of the homeowner. Heather’s mission is to ensure that each and every project (or space) represents the aesthetic sense of the individual for whom the space is being created. A strong passion for design paired with her bigger than life personality has positioned Heather to be one of Austin’s most sought after in her field.

Heather was very knowledgeable in helping us stay on track as we moved from a traditional home and built a Hill Country Modern home. She was able to help us choose everything from flooring, tile, paint, and hardware that flowed in color, style, and functionality. She was ahead of deadlines and stayed on budget for the most part.  Everyone who comes into our home is impressed by her design.
