Cindi Crigler

Cindi is a Houston interior designer with a flair for rustic treasures and comfortable living spaces that make family and friends feel right at home. When she's not decorating (or stretching in) a yoga studio, you'll find her scouring antique markets for cool accent pieces and new color combinations. She's also not afraid to flex her DIY muscles to give salvaged pieces a new life.

Decorating with Wallpaper:
Think wallpaper is outdated and tacky? Not the way Michele sees it.

Learn to use bold patterns like flocked damask and grass cloth to create unique, fashion forward spaces in your home. A small entryway will pop in brick and black damask. Give a conventional bathroom a little more shine with mixed metals. Follow Michele's lead by pairing printed wallpaper with contrasting pieces for an adventurous look. But stay true to your personal style in all aspects of your home decorating.
Get the look!
