You'd Never Guess This Townhouse Was Decorated on a Budget
The Everygirl takes us inside Katie Taylor's Austin, TX, home — it's a bargain hunters dream abode.
After years of working in the live music scene in the ever-so-vibrant city of Austin, Texas, Katie Taylor found herself wanting more time to pursue her passions outside of work. An opportunity presented itself and before she knew it, she had traded in her "concert tees for pencil skirts" and took a job working for the state government as an executive assistant. As a self-proclaimed lover of scheduling and organization, this career switch was a perfect fit.
After purchasing her first home on the outskirts of downtown Austin (partially based on its close proximity to Target—our kind of girl!) Katie's passion for decorating began to grow, and she's since transformed her townhouse into an inspired place to call home. After multiple paint jobs and plenty of home decor bargain hunts, Katie is taking us on a tour through the place that she attributes as the catalyst for her most recent career goal: building a business where she is able to design, style, and transform homes for others full-time. And if her own home is any indication, we'd say her new small business will be a wild success!
