A few Saturday’s ago, my husband Justin and I arrived at Amna and Creede’s East Austin home, a familiar palace of friendship for us that has been the scene of so many cherished gatherings over the years. This day happened to be one of those perfect Austin Spring ones, where the weather is even more delicious because you know that in no time it will have vanished, replaced by our endless Summer.
Stepping through their Yves Klein Blue front door, there is an array of thoughtful details to discover at every turn. The sum of these parts, despite being so meticulous, is a space that exudes ease and escape. During this visit, I styled Amna in a few recent MBS looks, while Justin photographed and Creede prepared food. Later, we all sat down for one of Creede & Amna’s essential spreads, seated outside in their enchanted courtyard washed in late afternoon light.
Read on for my conversation with Amna as we discuss home design, work/life balance, her inspiring approach to food, and more.
