Su Casa is a real estate staging company based in Austin Texas, founded by interior designers Karissa Wade and Lindsay Todd. Together we have 24+ years of combined experience in interior design, home construction and renovations, and in both commercial and residential design. We specialize in consulting, and partial staging in the luxury market, and we work closely with home sellers and real estate agents, operating our business with our own inventory, never rented goods. We take pride in our thoughtfully curated and unique stock, which includes custom artwork by local artists, antique rugs, and vintage furniture and accessories.
(Intro by Lindsay) - Karissa was raised in Austin, and was lucky enough to meet Lindsay Todd at a very young age (4th grade!). She just happens to be an incredible cook and trained chef, and is pretty much Anne Burrell crossed with Martha Stewart meets Joanna Gaines. She has been working in interior design since 2004, ran MAE Properties for 6 years, and has operated her own interiors business since 2012.
Karissa has an incredible eye for detail and constantly impresses everyone she meets with her work ethic and her indomitable can-do spirit. And she will really impress you with her knowledge of 1990s rap lyrics. She will bake you the most incredible vanilla ricotta cake with fresh lemon glaze while belting out Gangsta’s Paradise, and yet makes you feel blissfully at home in her cozy kitchen.
(Intro by Karissa) - Lindsay was born and raised in Austin (she thanks her lucky stars for that) and graduated from Baylor University. She has lived in North Carolina, Missouri, and is now finally back in her hometown full-time, getting to work in the design world she loves. Lindsay grew up with an amazing mom who was also an interior designer. She began working in interiors herself in 2005 in St. Louis, and then started her own interior design company in 2006. Lindsay has an extraordinary gift for custom homes, design build projects and renovations, which is the bread and butter of her interior design business. She is also extremely talented with color, lighting, and has quite the knack for vintage furniture shopping.
Lindsay and her husband Geoff have 2 precious daughters, Harper and Finley, and basically wish they lived on a horse farm in the Hill Country. Lindsay has always loved travel, is a total music nerd, and has a big love for (and a degree in) fashion. When Lindsay is not working with her interior design clients or staging homes, she is out enjoying the lake with her family or savoring the delicious local foodie paradise in town. And in Karissa's kitchen.
