“I am going to make everything around me beautiful—that will be my life.” — Elsie de Wolfe

My Mission as a Stylist

As a prop stylist, unearthing beauty—and truly celebrating it—is my passion. Whether I’m styling for editorial publications, ad campaigns, catalogs, videos or print, my creative mantra remains the same: I will make everything around me beautiful. 

Whether it’s your space, your line of products or your dinner table, I strive to create beautiful vignettes and moments. I work with a wide range of clients: fellow creatives, large corporations and small business owners, musicians and magazine editors. Some of my clients include Glamour Magazine, Google, Cracker Barrel, Curb Records and more listed in my Client List section.

My clients want someone who can see straight to the core of what makes them tick—the one, unique story they have to share—and tell that story visually. With ingenuity and skill, but above all, with impact.

It’s my mission to tell your story with a visual impact so striking and so beautiful, it lasts. It should be one that your audience yearns to experience again long after they’ve left the room or turned the page. Creating that visual story is my life’s work. And telling your specific story is my greatest privilege. 


What Sets My Styling Work Apart?

I’m a styling chameleon. Whether your desired look is clean and modern or layered and rustic, I’ve got lots of looks in my stylist’s bag of tricks. Each set I style will be different than the last, which isn’t to say I don't have a signature style. I simply like to ensure that my work is about you. And you are unique. 

I adore the beauty of simplicity. My creative direction for the clients and slew of fellow creatives with whom I work typically includes three words: simple, light, airy. Why? Because I believe that the most beautiful, moving scenes are comprised of simple objects of beauty. I adore the warm hue of worn wood. The look of linen crumpled just so. The artful layering of textures and natural elements.

I think the sign of a mature, seasoned designer is that she knows the sweet spot in her styling work—the one where nothing should be added nor taken away. It's my personal mission to set trends, not follow them, so let's talk about how we can work together creatively to achieve that goal. 

My rates vary depending on the scope and details of each shoot, so please don’t hesitate to email me at hi@elizabethulrichdesign.com to discuss your next project.

My Story

I’m the daughter of a wood-working entrepreneur and a make-do-and-mend mother. I grew up in a Texas town of less than 2,000 in a home built in the early 1800s. After graduating high school, I roamed the country, living a life where everything I owned fit in my car and landing in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City and Portland, Oregon.

After grad school, I moved to Nashville for a writing fellowship and met my husband. Now that I’ve amassed an extensive prop collection and too many pieces of vintage furniture to fit in my car, I’ve settled down quite a bit. But travel remains a constant source of inspiration, both personally and professionally.

After almost a decade of living in Nashville, my husband and I relocated to a small town just outside of Austin, Texas, where we live with our two mischievous dogs. I currently split time between Texas and Nashville. I am also available to travel worldwide.
