Tricia Dabney is a woman to watch in the world of interior design. She is the owner of High Cotton Home & Design, a successful boutique-furniture store and design center in Austin. She was raised on a farm in Illinois, where she developed an impressive work ethic and began honing in on her unique design style. With her passion for design in full force, she started Dabney Designs 25 years ago out of her home. During the last two decades, Dabney has made a name for herself within the Austin community, where her work has been featured on Houzz. In 2016, she launched High Cotton Home & Design, her dream job. The store has quickly become very well known in the Austin area. Earlier this year, High Cotton Home & Design was awarded the People’s Choice Award from Parade of Homes. The name High Cotton embodies Dabney’s roots as a farmer’s daughter, the adventure of finding her passion and the happiness she has created leading to this chapter in her life. She is truly walking in high cotton now.
