Friends of Sunroom: Emily Seiders

Call us biased but we're pretty sure we have the best community of friends out there. Get inspired with our series featuring some of the amazing women in the Sunroom world...this week, featuring Austin-based interior designer Emily Seiders

I always start my day with: Coffee, hugs from my kids, and then the mad dash of getting lunch made and my son out the door.

My 5 “happy places” in Austin are:
Barton Creek swims at sunset with my hubby
Wakesurfing with friends on Lake Austin or Lake LBJ
Mid-day oysters and crisp white wine (or Bourbon Smash) at Clarks Oyster Bar
A quiet stroll through the Blanton Art Museum
On my back patio watching the birds, drinking coffee and being still for at least a minute!

How do you describe your style in three words? Easy, natural, unfussy

A few people whose style I love are... Keri Russell, Zoe Kravitz...and I saw Pierce Brosnan once in Hawaii wearing a sarong and straw hat. It was pretty perfect. 

The clothing item/jewelry piece/accessory/etc I own from Sunroom that is my all- time, go-to favorite is: My Moussy jeans and No.6 clogs! They are literally my uniform and in my opinion elevate any top into a cool outfit. And my Natalie Martin dresses...they are my favorite kind of one stop, instant outfit. 

What are a few songs you’re loving right now? 
I’m into Khalid at the moment, but can’t seem to get enough of Cass McCombs “There Can Be Only One”, “Midnight in Harlem” by Tedeschi Trucks Band, Dire Straits “Wild West End” or anything from Wilco, my all time fave. Throw in some vintage Elton John, some Spanish pop, Beach Boys... I love it all!

The travel destination I always re-visit (or suggest to my friends)...
La Gavina Hotel on the Costa Brava in Spain, farmers market in Hanalei Bay Hawaii, Amangiri in Southern Utah

Five things I’ll never travel without: A good playlist, a good moisturizer, a notebook to sketch or write down ideas, my phone, and lipstick. 

Something that’s inspiring me right now is: The Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, the concept of finding beauty in the imperfect, the rough, uneven. I love this in furniture and people - the more natural and real, the better for me.
