Welcome.

My name is Margot Austin and I am the editor and founder of The Design Edit, a collection of the best design stories I encounter in my life as a stylist and design communications specialist. Meet top talents, get inspired by beautiful spaces, get a first look at innovative new products and maybe even try one of my dead-easy DIY projects.

I've been meaning to do a little something to the inside of the entry door at #AustinSuite for some time. I hemmed and hawed over colour after colour. Decided on yellow. Then didn't do anything. Until today. Tape!

For my next tape DIY I am taking inspiration from this incredible artwork in the NYC home of design power couple Delphine and Reed Krakoff. Good luck me.
