Jessica Love has the unique ability to harness what makes her clients truly unique and bring those traits to life through interior design. As a graduate of Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design, she learned the rules of the trade at a young age so that she can now—strategically—break them. Jessica believes in individuality over trends and works to bring her client’s personalities through in each and every design. She is intensely creative and highly adaptable. These traits have built her a loyal clientele over the last 15 years who value her transparency and the ease she brings to the design process.
Jessica believes that confidence in our lives begin with a well-designed, carefully thought out home. She brings this sense of empowerment not only to her own clients, but to her community through volunteer positions with local non-profits like Big Brothers Big Sisters. Additionally, she serves on the board for Ten Thousand Villages and partners with Austin Habitat for Humanity as the beneficiary of her annual music showcase, Open Door Showcase, during SXSW. As a huge animal lover with two rescue pups of her own, Jessica has volunteered in the past for Austin Pets Alive! and Barkitecture. She also just launched her own 501c3 called Design Changes Lives, whose mission is to design spaces for children in order to build confidence, empower and improve the quality of their lives.
Growing up, Mary Cat was drawn to interior design shows on television. She enjoyed watching the “easy” parts of interior design, and as she grew older, she began to take note of the work that went into bringing those beautiful interiors to life. She would drive by construction sites and note the details of the structure being built, like floorplans and the materials used. She went on to graduate from the Art Institute of Austin in 2017 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design and became an expert renderer, bringing her own structures to life through precise digital techniques. As a design assistant at Urbane Design, Mary Cat puts her exacting eye to good use as an AutoCAD specialist. She is able to give our clients a detailed look into their future space. She is also responsible for on-site measures, taking notes at initial consultations, ordering and tracking materials, and setting up design trade accounts with numerous vendors. Every successful project includes Mary Cat working tirelessly behind the scenes.
Mary Cat’s personal interior design style is eclectic and bohemian. She loves when old world pieces intertwine with modern—like a straight line sofa and a quirky side chair living together in perfect harmony. She’s always up for a challenge, which makes mixing styles and textures right up her alley.
Julie Roberts is the driving force behind all things administration at Urbane Design. With a degree in Interior Design from Baylor University, Julie is NCIDQ certified and licensed in the state of Texas—which gives her a keen insight into the inner workings of the design business and client relations. She began her career in high-end residential design, and then transitioned into mutli-family and commercial. Since joining the Urbane Design team in 2019, Julie has helped streamline back-of-house duties like billing, invoicing and payroll—she helps keep us paperless!—while also serving as a point of contact for our clients.
Julie's personal design style is modern meets eclectic. She loves mixing clean lines with vintage items that add character and interest.
