Interior designer Caitlin Wilson launched her Dallas-based firm in 2007, focused on classic design principles. Her husband’s job took her abroad for a few years, but her company continued to expand, and Wilson took inspiration from travels throughout the Middle East and Asia. Wilson launched her own textile collection in 2011, which included custom fabrics and pillows.

Now an internationally acclaimed designer, Wilson continues to work with high-profile clients from her flagship studio in Dallas. Here, she shares what inspires her personal style, her go-to accessories, and more:

What I Do

“I’m an interior designer and home decor product designer and the owner of Caitlin Wilson Design.”

Style Icon

“Aerin Lauder. She is classic and elegant. She has a strong perspective, but her personal style is soft and sophisticated.”

On The Job

“I am always on the go, between meetings and hopping around, so comfort is key. Dresses are my uniform and the easiest for the variety of settings I am in every day.”

Style Inspiration

“My style is very informed by my interior style; it’s feminine and colorful but always elevated and tailored.”

Fashion Essentials

“I never leave home without sunglasses and an extra pair of shoes. I must be comfortable, so I usually switch to Dior slides or a pair of sneakers halfway through my busy days.”

How I Accessorize

“As much as I love accent decor in interiors, my personal accessories are simple and classic. I usually wear the same four bracelets, purely because they don’t come off. And my earrings five days a week are a simple pair. I’ll go bolder with a fun headband from Lele Sadoughi or a bright colored purse.”

Weekend Look

“I love to lounge, so I have quite a collection of cozy sweatshirts.  You can find me any day of the week after 5 p.m. in one of them.”

Favorite Store

“Dior: classic, refined, a bit of color with Parisian flair.”
