Rebekah Gainsley has a master’s degree in social work and has also studied architecture at the master’s level. Her interest in how people express themselves through style and design has led her to work with people from all walks of life. Rebekah tries to strike a balance between running her own interior design firm in Austin and running after her two spirited children. She is committed to helping clients tell their own story and feel confident about the design choices they make. She likes to think her enriching life is worth her outstanding loans from the University of Michigan and the University of Texas-Austin.
Robert Bentley holds a bachelors of interior design with a minor in architecture from Texas Tech University. He has worked with commercial and residential clients in both New York City and Austin. He brings a keen eye to detail and devotes his career to helping people understand their design preferences. Robert is LEED certified and tries to promote green practices wherever he can, be it sourcing local furniture makers, specifying recycled materials or advocating quality pieces that won’t be thrown away after a couple moves. When making design decisions, he is a systematic planner and is the proud owner of Austin’s quirkiest french bulldog, Kado.
