TEXANS ARE PROUD, & ROBIN BOND INTERIORS IS PROUD TO BE FROM TEXAS
It is no surprise that its residents, whether native or transplant, even like to think of Texas as being its own country. Texas interiors have their own unique aesthetic, and Austin interiors in particular stand out from the crowd with their distinctive eclectic edge, utilizing environmentally conscious options that are high-end and luxurious. Perhaps this is attributed to the city being made up of successful cutting edge thinkers, entertainers, musicians, entrepreneurs and inventors who do not want to be boxed in to one particular style. Instead, they have a preference to create an environment that is a reflection of their unique personalities.
Each client's home or commercial space calls out for something different. Robin has an innate ability to synthesize the desires of her clients, consider the architecture of the space with existing furnishings, and translate them into a harmonious design. Minimal clutter and ultimate comfort are the driving factors in her "less is more" approach, where negative space is regarded just as highly as positive, with restraint being understood as a necessity for achieving the perfect balance within a room. She loves to create spaces using our firm's signature style, which is luxurious, individual and distinctive, combining contemporary lines, edgy elements and fearless color or bold contrast.
Robin Bond Interiors is a national, multi-award winning interior design firm specializing in high-end residential and boutique commercial design. The firm has been ranked in the Austin Business Journal as one of Austin's top interior design firms for the past five years and counting.

Taylor Alvis - Purchasing Coordinator
A native Texan, Taylor has been immersed in the world of home building and interior design since childhood, with her dad working as a home builder in The Woodlands and her mom serving as the interior decorator for his model homes. This early exposure sparked her passion for art and design which led her to pursue a Bachelor of Art in Art History from the University of Houston, as well as her Master’s in Design History and Curatorial Studies at Parsons, The New School for Design.
Taylor came to Robin Bond Interiors after returning to Texas from seven years in New York both getting her master’s degree and working in the world of fine art logistics. This experience, as well as her past observing her parents dovetail perfectly into her current role of Purchasing Coordinator at Robin Bond Interiors where she is responsible for placing orders and expertly coordinating all the logistics to ensure that the final project comes together with ease.
When she is not working on organization and logistics, Taylor lives with her boyfriend Jason as well as her two cats, and enjoys going to see movies and concerts as well as taking in the local art scene.
