Your creative will be triggered and tested as you go through the pages of Kristi Linauer’s blog. She wanted to major in Interior Design back in college but ended up getting a degree in Psychology. However, her calling for things that makes our homes beautiful didn’t stop her even if she was busy working in several mission trips in Germany, Morocco and Egypt.

She initially started with a full service interior decorating company in Waco, Texas as well as several surrounding areas.
