We’ve realized that interior design is part poetry - a composition of fragments combined to create rhythm and harmony. And each component has a particular purpose, never there just for the sake of filling up space. Every time we work on a project we ask ourselves, “what is the story this project needs to tell?”
We’re a mother daughter design team that formed in 2014 and we specialize in what we call “progressive” design. That is to say we’re interested in where the world is going, and we’re constantly keeping tabs on it so our design is informed by progress. We’re into things like making small spaces ultra-functional, low-maintenance and non-toxic fabric and furniture, and locally made products. In our view, beautiful spaces celebrate art, nature, stimulate creativity, and need not be harsh on the planet.
Our goal is to design for the way you live. We strive to provide a service that interprets your lifestyle in the visual expression of your home; to create a space that you want to lounge in, entertain in, and be yourself in. We make sure your space is in sync with you.
Donna Whelan formed her own design firm in 2008, after working several years as an in-house designer for a high-end furniture showroom. Her design process relies mostly on instinct, and when it comes to envisioning spaces, she is an artist in her own right.
Her daughter, Caitlin, studied journalism and is passionate about the storytelling process in design. She says storytelling is especially useful when it comes to understanding the client's personal story and using that to cultivate the vision for a space. Caitlin also loves designing furniture with her mom, and cleaning up at flea markets she frequents on the weekends.
