I'm sure some of you have noticed that I'm trying to approach Instagram from a different perspective with my #realrealityczd stories. I'm so excited by the positive response I'm receiving!! I want everyone to understand not everything is perfect in my life (or even close to it) and that's what I think makes living so beautiful. I often feel like I'm a walking disaster and get discouraged BUT I also want to share when things are good. I've been busy updating my website (including my press page) and I'm proud of what I've accomplished. I could not have done any of it without the support of friends, family and other fabulous creatives. We have to encourage and support each other through everything. Life is not a competition. Okay. Soapbox over. β˜ΊοΈπŸ™‹πŸΌ Photo of my little kitchen by the talented @mollyculverphotography for @dominomag #clairezinneckerdesign

Rainy weekends mean website updates! Slowly but surely I'm adding new projects to #clairezinneckerdesign including event styling and some press pieces!! ....also, do you guys remember how COLD it was during SXSW?? 😬 πŸ“Έ by @mollyculverphotography

Wow! I'm loving reading everyone's responses to my Instagram story. Sounds like we need to start an Instagram support group ☺️ As a thank you for opening up to me I am sharing a photo I took 3+ years ago of one of my favorite buildings. It's since been painted over and always serves as a reminder to stop and enjoy the pretty things in life because you never know how long they will be around! πŸ’•πŸŒΏβœ¨

Happiest Mother's Day to the lady who has always encouraged me to be creative, be outside and be myself. Grateful isn't an adequate word to describe how thankful I am to have you in my life. Love you mama @katewz. Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing ladies out there! πŸ’•

Happy Friday!!!! Guys, I am overwhelmed by all the sweet texts, messages, emails and calls about my health. I'm slowly getting better and am hoping to get some greenbelt time tomorrow to enjoy this incredible weather if my body allows! For everyone who I haven't answered yet (work or personal) I promise I'm trying to get to you asap! I can most certainly say I am not good with being forced to slow down but my health and body definitely decided it was time to take a break. Until I can take some new fun photos here's one of me looking pensive (and not sick!) on my sofa. Hope you all have a restful and wonderful weekend!!! πŸ“Έ by @mollyculverphotography for @urbanoutfitters.

2017 has definitely thrown some hurdles my way but when I take a step back and really look at what this year has brought me I can't help but be thankful. It is not even halfway through the year and I have already conquered so many of my resolutions. I've challenged myself multiple times to speak in public (yikes!!), I've designed event spaces, I've traveled to two countries, I'm designing a jewelry line and a rug πŸ‘πŸΌ and have gained more friendships in 3 months than I did all of last year. Sometimes the good is overshadowed by the bad but if you take step back you can see how wonderful life really is. βœ¨πŸ’• #clairezinneckerdesign

Still can't get over how magical yesterday was. The weather, the venue, the decor, the people and most importantly the bride and groom made last night go from a traditional wedding to an incredible celebration of love. I can't believe this beauty is married. Please hurry back to Austin!!! πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ’• #standbayouman

In honor of J+A's wedding weekend I thought I'd do a little throw back to the time of kitten mania at #reddoorhome....I like to think these little cuties played a big role in my two friends falling in love. πŸ’•

I've been having quite a few conversations lately about the reality (or rather false reality) of the world of Instagram. I'm always so surprised when I see people and they say "you just live the perfect life, you are doing so well! I'm so jealous, etc etc". Don't get me wrong, I am incredibly thankful for my life and wouldn't change a thing but please know that what you see online is NOT my whole life. What I chose to share are the pretty moments, the inspiring moments. I don't share the hard times, the times I'm stressed and the times I feel like the world is crumbling around me. This is why I started the "real reality behind Instagram" series on Instagram stories. I hope to share a glimpse of the not so pretty times. The times my house is a mess, I haven't showered or I make a design mistake. "Comparison is the thief of joy", don't let yourself go down the rabbit hole of social media comparison. I promise you, no one's life is as sparkly as it appears. πŸ’•βœ¨ #clairezinneckerdesign photo by @mollyculverphotography

The older I get the more I realize how little I know. One thing I'm certain of is how incredibly fortunate I am to be surrounded by such a wealth of talented, kind and creative people. Life is weird and wonderful and I wouldn't change a thing. πŸ’• πŸ“Έ by @jessicascottphoto

Driving in Austin traffic is never fun but my Lexus RX sure makes it nicer. Coming home to these two doesn't hurt either. πŸ’• @lexusofaustin @lexusoflakeway #drivenambassador

Spent a magical morning in the studio of @claireoswalt I walked in planning on finding a piece for @creativeparasol and ended up leaving with a piece of my own! πŸ’•βœ¨
