Juneteenth Texas Heritage: Robin Wilson of CLEAN DESIGN HOME®

Robin Wilson of Robin Wilson Home & CLEAN DESIGN HOME®

We were excited to connect with entrepreneur and tastemaker Robin Wilson. This Austin, Texas native is the Founder of Robin Wilson Home & CLEAN DESIGN HOME®, author of CLEAN DESIGN: Wellness for your Lifestyle. Living in New York, this Southern Belle has dedicated the last 20 years to educating consumers on the power of a wellness-focused interior home ecosystem. Through her lifestyle brand, she focuses on hypoallergenic and sustainable products to support 1 in 5 (60 million Americans) who are affected by allergies or asthma. 

We asked Robin to take us down memory lane through her life in Texas and Juneteenth memories, especially from when she was young, celebrating the holiday with her family to how she now celebrates the holiday with her daughter.

How do you celebrate Juneteenth?

Robin Wilson – I have celebrated Juneteenth every year since my childhood, starting with a reflective moment. And it is about having a few favorite foods and libations. One of the recent traditions is to go onto Ancestry.com every year on this day, review the family tree, tell my daughter stories about her ancestors, and see if there are any new connections.

What do you love about celebrating Juneteenth?

Robin Wilson – Juneteenth for a Texan meant studying the subject in class and then going home to hear the ‘real story’ from my elders. I love the fact that it is like the 4th of July for the Black community – one day that can be celebrated by everyone from any religion. It is about food and family.

Favorite Black-owned food brands or restaurants in Texas?

Robin Wilson – In Austin, the go-to black-owned restaurants are either Hoovers Soul Food or Franklin BBQ

What’s your favorite recipe from Watermelon and Red Birds: A Cookbook for Juneteenth and Black Celebrations by Nicole A. Taylor, and why? 

Robin Wilson – I chose the Strawberry Lemonade and Beef Ribs recipes – I remember drinking Big Red soda as a child for Juneteenth, the one day a year that we were allowed to have lots of sugary drinks. And the BBQ was over-the-top for a Texas kid – plates of ribs, sausages, potato salad, coleslaw, peach cobbler, and cakes! Plus, someone was always making hand-churned ice cream. So many memories!

 

We hope Robin inspired some Juneteenth celebration ideas! Learn more about her and her lifestyle brand – How to Live a Hypoallergenic Lifestyle from Robin Wilson

And get more memories and celebration ideas from other tastemakers – Juneteenth Stories And share your Juneteenth ideas with us on social media using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle

 

FOUNDER: ROBIN WILSON

Robin Wilson built a lifestyle brand over 20 years and was named to INC magazine’s “Top 100 Female Founders” in 2020. Some accolades include: 

  • First Black woman with a licensed, global textile line
  • First woman with a line of custom cabinetry sold nationwide
  • The first woman to license her name to eco-friendly kitchen cabinetry
  • Second black woman with a Bed Bath & Beyond line

Robin Wilson is a lifelong allergy and asthma sufferer from Austin, Texas. She was fortunate to have a holistic pediatrician who told her parents, “…you can raise a strong child or a child on strong medicine.” Her parents implemented his guidance with diet modifications, interior design alterations and exercise instead of steroid medications. Utilizing her lifelong knowledge and given that 1 in 5 people (60 million Americans) are affected by allergies or asthma, she built her lifestyle brand to focus on educating consumers on the power of a wellness-focused interior home ecosystem. 

Robin Wilson is a visionary focused on guiding residential and hospitality clients to find simple solutions for elegant, practical, sophisticated, eco-friendly, sustainable, and hypoallergenic products to limit asthma triggers to allow efficacy in allergen management.

Says Robin, “CLEAN DESIGN HOME® brand identity better reflects our market-leading segmentation and allows us to expand our positioning in the global eco-friendly, wellness sector for our global clients.”

 

CLEAN DESIGN HOME® is a curated retail brand extension of the legacy Robin Wilson Home brand, a leading retail brand. Their options are developed ‘from the foundation to the furnishings’ by founder Robin Wilson who brings her focus on wellness, chic style, and sustainable options to a discerning consumer.

The firm has a 20+ year history focused in both residential and hospitality – and the trademarked CLEAN DESIGN HOME® brand was developed during the 2020 COVID pandemic – at a time when clients changed the lexicon of ‘home’ to reflect a need for clean, well-designed product offerings. 

CLEAN DESIGN HOME® protocols ensure items are eco-friendly, hypoallergenic, sustainable and non-toxic. They only select items we would use in our personal residences. Their focus is everything home!
