With a love of all things fun and fashionable, Stephanie is known as much for her fun jewelry collection as she is for her brilliant design ideas. By combining a flair for color, art and occasional whimsy with a practical, budget-conscious sensibility, Stephanie guides her clients to the design choices that naturally suit them.
Stephanie earned her experience as an assistant designer to Jerri Kunz and later as a partner at Cohagan Hall Design Associates. In her nine years with Cohagan Hall, Stephanie performed all phases of design for residential and commercial clients and learned first-hand that the quality is in the details.
Her experience made Stephanie a natural choice as head interior designer for living.com, an online furniture retailer. When living.com closed, Stephanie and a co-worker started their own venture with 3DC Design Studio. 3DC was hugely successful in creating beautiful residential spaces, spec homes, offices and a boutique hotel at the Mansion at Judges’ Hill.
In December 2004, Stephanie branched out with Bella Villa Design Studio to continue applying her artistic vision and strong sense of livable style. Stephanie is an active member of the design community and served on the local ASID board for many years. When she’s not doodling ideas for chic lofts and warm kitchens, Stephanie spends time with her family.
Bobbie has a strong affinity for art and design and with that she pursued a degree in Interior Design. She is an award winning graduate from Abilene Christian University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design. While in school Bobbie worked as an assistant at Abilene Interior Design.
She originally started with Bella Villa in November 2005 but in 2008 she had to relocate to San Antonio with her husband. In May of 2010, they returned to Austin and Bobbie returned to Bella Villa. Her strengths in business savvy solutions combined with her thoroughness and creativity make her an asset to our Design team. She also leads our efforts in the growth of our marketing and brand related material. In April of 2011, she passed the NCIDQ and became a Texas Registered Interior Designer. With lots of hard work and dedication she has become an integral part of Bella Villa Design Studio.
