Originally from Chicago, Kristen considers herself a Washingtonian at heart, having lived in the Metro DC area for over 15 years. However, her honest and friendly Midwestern approach has remained a cornerstone for how she conducts business.

Growing up in her family’s art gallery, Kristen developed an appreciation for art early on. In addition, her mother introduced her to the allure of historic homes and beautiful antiques from an early age, which has fostered a keen interest and respect for the history and design of vintage objects. Kristen draws inspiration from her many travels throughout Europe, and her time spent living on the Mediterranean island of Malta. She is inspired by color and pattern, with a little hint of glamour thrown in. Using her background in theatre arts and set design, Kristen believes the details of a space tell the story of those who live within.
