01 about

For me, design is all about finding a purpose, with style. From functional tweaks to creating spaces you emotionally connect to, I love nothing more than helping you feel at home.


I am a born and raised Iowan who grew up earning my allowance building homes with my father. Little did I know holding nails, painting, scavenging worksites for littered pop bottles, and the other odd-jobs dad bestowed on me would serve as inspiration for my future.

I graduated from Drake University with a bachelor of fine arts in graphic design, art history and drawing. I enjoyed great friends. Made endless memories. Met my future husband. And even gained work experience at a graphic design firm in London (still at the top of my favorite cities). 


When school was over I worked as a freelance graphic designer and began DIYing my first home. Soon after I started as a part-time job gift wrapper at Pottery Barn to get ready for the holidays.


That was it. I fell in love with decorating. I quickly grew to a full-time design specialist and became the leader and coach to the stores designers. My love for interior decorating founded Lindsay Trabing Designs in 2015. 

Since, I've had the opportunity to style spaces nationwide and even worked international projects in Aruba and Hong Kong! I love to travel and draw inspiration from recent visits to Europe, India, Africa, Japan, and Indonesia. 

I'm a sucker for pizza, bubbly and all the dessert. You can usually find me driving my husband crazy by pondering what color I should repaint the walls or the next DIY project to start. I love to run with my sweetest pup Miela. I'm a hot yoga/barre enthusiast and love a good challenge whether it be a marathon or triathlon even if I don't know how to swim.

I am now ASP certified and branched Lindsay Trabing Designs to home staging.

"I LOVE Lindsay Trabing Designs!!!!! Lindsay has created the most amazing and beautiful home for me and my husband, perfectly reflecting our style....only so much better than we could have done on our own! Lindsay designed every room in our house, turning it into a home that is gorgeous, comfortable, and functional. No detail was too small or overlooked. Lindsay helped with the large pieces of furniture, window treatments, throw pillows and every accessory needed to make each room perfect. We could not be happier with the work that Lindsay did in our home. Not only is Lindsay an extremely talented designer, she is warm, funny and an absolute joy to work with!!"
