Headshot of Holly Lefevre of 504 Main

Holly Lefevre is the voice behind 504 Main. She is an author, fashion designer, DIYer, crafter, wedding expert, mocha lover, and “Mama.” Growing up in a family with a “do-it-yourself” philosophy, she naturally made designing, crafting, creating, and DIYing an integral part of her life. From magnificent table settings to glitter, to plate joining biscuits to a jig saw – she never met a project she didn’t like. Holly embraces using materials in new and sometimes unusual ways to create a style that is clever, unique, and totally fun! Currently, Holly is a California girl living in Austin, Texas.

For Mother’s Day, we asked Holly to share her thoughts about her mother, and about being a mom herself. Read This Entry
