LEAD INTERIOR DESIGNER
Those who know me well might say that I am a wanderlust. My favorite memories have been formed while exploring far-flung places—from staying with monks in the mountains of Japan to canoeing the Dordogne River in France to exploring the Catalan Modernism architecture of Barcelona, Spain.
One of the best things about being a designer is that I get to put those tendencies to work. Instead of physically traveling to some other place, I explore the darkest corners of auction houses and antique stores for a one-of-a-kind sideboard, travel across the country to see what is new in tile and furnishings, and scour stacks magazines (new and old) to create what’s next for color, patterns, and furnishings.
I discovered that interior design was my calling when I built my first home in South Louisiana. Eventually, I put my successful career in advertising in the rear view and landed in design school where I discovered not only a nerdy joy for color theory, but also the vibrant, creative city of Austin, Texas that has been my home for over a decade.
I am a creator who thrives on collaboration – I look for clients who want to be a partner in my design wanderlust, share ideas and discover what’s beautiful out there.
A proud supporter of Austin’s art community, I’ve served on the Board of Directors for the Rude Mechanicals, a ground-breaking ensemble-based theater collective based in East Austin. I am currently on the board of Design Changes Lives, a new non-profit dedicated to inspiring confidence in children through custom-designed bedrooms.

As a former coordinator for Interscope Records, Jessica’s creative eye was developed in the company of literal rock stars.
While generating album concepts for artists such as Beck, Gwen Stefani, 50 Cent, and others, Jessica worked with photographers, stylists, and designers to turn creative ideas into eye-catching visuals. From there, it was off to the world of indie films for Jessica, where she worked as a production designer and wardrobe stylist. After moving to Austin from the west coast, Jessica launched her own wardrobe consulting company, and eventually lent her design expertise to corporate and lifestyle event planning.
At Sarah Stacey Interior Design, Jessica works with clients to find just the right accessories to reflect their personality and interests, while beautifully complementing a space’s larger design. You can often find Jessica combing Etsy and Ebay, tracking down a gem from a private estate seller, or exploring small-town antique stores for pieces that her clients have an instant connection with.
