THE 13THIRTY STORY
Following the birth of her first child, Sara Quinn was ready to create something of her own a little closer to home. She wanted the freedom to design her own life. She had been working in Dallas for over a decade, but as a new mother, she was determined to find a way to balance design and her new role. Sara took the leap, and 13THIRTY DESIGNS was established in 2016. Since then, she has been lucky enough to watch her children grow alongside her business. Now, 13THIRTY DESIGNS has expanded into its own design studio. Juggling entrepreneurship and motherhood is a masterclass in multi-tasking every day, and it all happens here at 13THIRTY DESIGNS.
OWNER + DESIGNER
Sara has had a passion for design from a very young age. Following that passion, she studied interior design at Baylor University and obtained a bachelor's degree in 2006. Not long after graduating and landing her dream job, the recession hit and the design industry took a downturn. For the next several years, Sara took any job that would keep her designing, from multi-family residential to hospitality and healthcare. Those experiences helped her to hone her craft and develop an unflinching adaptability. The lessons she learned about the practicalities that accompany creative design laid the foundation for 13THIRTY DESIGNS.
When she isn’t designing for clients, you can find Sara with family, enjoying the simple things—like lavender lattés and impromptu kitchen dance parties.
