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.
When I am not spending time with my toddler, I volunteer in the archive department the Bastrop County Historical Society Museum, where I assist in archiving vintage and antique textiles.
A proud supporter of Central Texas’ 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.

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.
Growing up in sunny Sacramento, Grace would watch her mother, an artist, create a harmonious blend of seemingly disparate shades. This inspired a lifelong fascination with color in Grace, who aspires to bring a similar harmony to people’s interior designs.
Grace diverted from her longtime career as a professional nanny to find a profession that was fast-paced and engaging, where she’d always be learning something new. Grace found that role on the SSID team, where she works as Sarah’s detail-focused, ever-curious assistant.
Grace, who moved to Texas as a teenager, recently relocated to Austin from nearby Bastrop. When she isn’t assisting Sarah and the SSID team, she enjoys exploring the bustling new city with her new daughter, husband and dog.
Houston-born and Austin-raised, Erin Thompson developed a love of natural beauty growing up on the banks of Lake Travis. Captivated by the intricate grain patterns on milled wood of her stepfather’s carpentry projects, the young Erin also cultivated an appreciation for functional design.
Today, Erin brings her knack for photography, eye for functional interiors and knowledge of design trends—gleaned from years of experience as an Austin real estate agent—to SSID. As the team’s task-orientated project manager, Erin helps the team execute projects and bring designs to life.
Erin believes that interior design has a formative impact on the spaces where we live, work, rest and entertain. She describes her own style as “functional and inspired by nature,” with earthy neutral tones punctuated by pops of color.
Erin has three children and a handsome dog named Ashitaka—the latter of whom is prominently featured all over her Instagram feed. A lover of all things outdoors, she spends her free time hiking Austin’s lush greenbelt. In the future, Erin hopes to apply her design expertise to her dream of building homes.
