After attending San Francisco State University and studying interior design and humanities, she furthered her education by attending California State University Long Beach where she studied and completed her thesis in interactive exhibit design.
Kristen is instrumental in every part of the design process--from assessing clients’ needs, creating construction documents, project supervision, to material and furniture selection. Kristen brings a thoughtful and spirited approach to her designs, and is dedicated to crafting spaces that meet the client's needs but also exceed their expectations. By combining a modern clean-lined aesthetic with vintage pieces, she curates spaces that feel collected over a period of time. Kristen has the ability to take any vague idea that a client has and turn into a functional and cultivated haven.
Kristen has arrived to her design aesthetic through working at high-end residential firms in San Francisco and all over the Los Angeles area. She has worked at well-known design firms such as Integrafika Design Studio in San Francisco, Turquoise Interior Design and Kathryn M. Ireland. She also worked as a junior designer at Idea Space Design in Beverly Hills where she assisted with the project management of many stylish projects in the Shoreham Towers and Sierra Towers in West Hollywood. She is creatively inspired and invigorated by travel, exploring an ever changing Los Angeles, and a passionate supporter of the arts.
