Texas-based interior designer Christian Ladd's personal style and demeanour echoes how she describes her interior design style: classic, traditional, timeless.
After working with Barry Williams at in Dallas and moving back to Amarillo, several years later Christian Ladd Interiors launched in 2016. Other than designing, Christian’s number one passion is traveling and her kids are what make her smile the most.
Christian believes we need to look to the past for inspiration. Pieces that are too trendy will never surpass the test of time. She says, “often with our ‘have it now’ mentality, it forces manufacturers to produce poorly made items quickly. Always remember, good things come to those who wait.”
On Decor A List, “I love the “Back to Where We Came From” piece by Tanja Meski, the “Celebrate, Veuve” piece and the Bedford Leather Storage Basket. I would style the Bedford Basket because baskets are another item I feel every home needs. It could be styled in many different ways but I would use it for storage in a family room for things such as blankets or extra pillows.”

Well maintained potted plants are a great way to break up the space between pavement and the exterior walls of your home. Timeless and traditional; they never go out of style.
Mixing traditional elements and forms with a contemporary and minimalist use of cupboard space; Christian’s kitchen is welcoming and avant garde. Slim, contemporary hardware combined with neatly organised shelves varies to what we usually see with cupboards galore!
Heirloom furniture always has a place in homes I design as well as my own home because those pieces hold special memories.Christian Ladd
Heirloom furniture always has a place in the homes Christian designs as well as her own home because those pieces hold special memories. These are the pieces that make a space feel unique and they are what make a house a home.
“For instance, I have a Baker Hepplewhite sideboard that belonged to my paternal grandparents. Additionally, it’s always important to me to mix highs and lows and old and new. The juxtaposition of these elements create a uniquely curated space.”
The softness of the upholstered chairs, low hanging pendant light and earthy, green tones makes this informal dining area incredible welcoming and cosy!
