Sara Crooks


Oklahoma-based with Southern sensibilities, Sara Crooks came to design through the notice of various friends and acquaintances taking note of her abilities and asking her to tackle their projects. In a tale as old as time, one thing lead to another and in 2012, Sara Crooks Design was born. Now, years later with more intense study, Sara has continued to hone her eye, fine-tune her skill, and has found her stride in guiding clients with a high dose of creativity and a big shot of logic. She thrives on collaboration with clients and walking people through blank stares to the creation of spaces that nurture the family and provide a beautiful backdrop for life’s memories to unfold. Sara sees the world in the tiniest of details and in her opinion, a house is far more than a collection of finishes and furniture. Sara, along with her team, thrives on executing whole-home projects from new construction or remodels through full furnishing. Sara lives in Edmond, Oklahoma, with her attorney/entrepreneur husband, Michael, her son, John Michael, twin girls, Juliet and Audrey and their British Lab, Pete.

Meet The Designer

How would you describe your aesthetic in three words?

Fresh, approachable, classically inspired.

What inspires you?

Classic elements executed in new ways, travel and the jolt of a new view, as well as thumbing through design books and studying each element of a space.

What is your favorite/go-to design advice?

Juxtaposition and tension make interesting spaces so always think about contrast - light/dark; rough/smooth; fancy/humble; traditional/modern, and so forth. Also, keep in mind that not every selection should be the star of the show. Some selections need to serve a supporting role. And finally, context is key. You can't evaluate a selection in isolation.

Bedroom bliss 🍃 Design by @tomscheerer 📷 @triagiovan ...

It’s no secret that every piece of furniture @theceh makes is gorgeous, but we needed to rave about them today for a different reason. Have you been following their stories lately? We have been so inspired and humbled by their dedication to their customers that we had to share…

Last month their delivery driver quit mid-delivery with no notice. For weeks now, Diana and Justin, the owners of @theceh have been driving cross country with their children, personally delivering the remaining pieces to make sure customers get everything in time.

Follow along in their stories as they share more from their nationwide delivery road trips and tap the link in our profile to learn more about @theceh on their #TTLDirectory page. { Design @lizziecullencox 📷 @laureywglenn }
