Kristen Nix mixes antiques with more modern pieces and is not afraid to include different price ranges in the same project. This sense of combination was also used in Hill Top, a project in which she provided a renovation with a daring but pleasant interior.
It is a true art to give a space something contemporary and timeless at the same time. For Kristen Nix, however, this is no problem. After gaining experience at Vogue and Neiman Marcus, she decided to spread her wings. With her eponymous studio, she represents a design language that uses scale and simplicity to achieve interesting results. For example, she likes neat lines and tidy details. Furthermore, she is not afraid to experiment with different colours and textures, under the watchful eye of balance and simplicity. Nevertheless, she never strays from the importance of functionality and liveability. Indeed, each of her projects invariably aims to fulfil the clients' wishes in the form of inspiring and practical spaces.
A whole of neat lines and tidy details.
Hill Top is a renovation project in Austin, Texas that has spanned no less than two and a half years. After architect Hugh Jefferson Randolph designed the Moorish-style home, Kristen Nix Interiors was brought in to provide the interiors. Throughout the process, however, the team faced a few obstacles, which of course made the result all the more satisfying. The clients, a family with three children, needed a home that looked light and clean. However, this did not mean that they wanted to avoid colour and patterns - on the contrary. As a result, the general neutrality was complemented by striking works of art that give each room its own mood. In the children's rooms, the use of colour and pattern was slightly more daring. Kristen Nix also incorporated unusual silhouettes, creating an innovative play of forms. In addition to using her own creative eye, she was assisted by stylist Jenny Oconner and florist Haille Wosson. Kristen Nix Interiors made sure that Hill Top residents never experienced a moment of boredom in their renovated home. By creating a playful dynamic between textures and shapes, the rooms were given a multidimensional interpretation. The expanding serenity of the calm palette is complemented in the right way by colourful elements.
