Meet Interior Designer, Robin Gonzales

I’m Robin Gonzales, an Austin, TX interior designer and I want to help make your design vision for your home a reality.

Originally I received a degree in broadcasting, and even hosted a television show about real estate. But my love of design kept pulling me in that direction, so when the Art Institute opened in Austin, I went back for my degree in design.

For as long as I can remember, I was passionate about interior design. In fact, when I was in college studying broadcasting, while most of my classmates were saving up for clothes and parties, I was putting my money aside for a bold, striped designer sofa I had my eye on.

It wasn’t unusual for family, friends, and acquaintances to ask me for design advice. What color is right here? Where should I put that chair? How would you approach this room? I loved helping the people in my life realize their dreams of creating a beautiful space. The whole process from beginning to end made me come alive.

Going back to school and getting my design degree was the best decision I ever made. Working with architects and contractors to not only make spaces beautiful but change the way client’s live in the space is exciting. As a mother of two sons, I understand the need to create a space that is not only beautiful but functional for the family that lives there.

My goal is to ensure you enjoy not just the completed design but the process of getting there. Designing your space can and should be a fun experience. It is a synergistic collaboration between you and the designer. My joy comes from working with clients to create spaces that are a true reflection of the souls who live inside.
