Patty Frankhouser

Design Background

I’m a graduate of the Art Institute with a degree in Interior Design. I started my career way down in Texas learning to speak Texanese. The first 12 years of my career were in commercial design and then I made the move to high end residential store not unlike Perlora in Austin.

Favorite Thing About Working at Perlora

I have been with Perlora 21 years, I was here when they were pouring the cement for the last step for our grand opening. I have enjoyed my time here over the years especially learning new product and new vendors daily. Each vendor has a way to create and personalize your space, sometimes just with 1 unique piece. I love color, but I recently completed a space in all greys. I feel that I’m easily adaptable to your desire. I try to be considerate that it’s your space when our warehouse guys walk out the door. So I want to create an environment that’s livable and special at the same time. I recently finished homes in the DC and LA area, each home being a totally different look and fun to work on. I’m pretty good with logistics too. Also a local project was recently featured in Trend magazine.

Favorite Perlora Memory

My favorite memory is when Perry tried to sell Kendrell Bell his football tickets.
