Kristen Giacomini, Owner & Interior Designer
Kristen’s passion for interior design stems from her mother’s creative genius and great eye for design. As a child, her mom would transform their childhood home into a magical play land at birthdays, create dazzling decor for the holidays and generally always provided a home that was welcoming, warm, and cozy. Growing up in Truckee CA, Kristen always felt connected to nature. She loved being outdoors, hiking, skiing and exploring. This was always her happy place. Throughout her life she found being creative was the easiest way to express herself. Making handmade birthday cards, poems, and collages for friends always brought her joy and a sense of purpose. In school art projects and presentations were her jam, highlighting her love for thinking outside the box and then allowing her to get up and discuss her thought process.
After high School Kristen moved to Arizona to pursue her Bachelors degree in Interior Design at the Southwest University of Visual Arts in Tucson, where she had the pleasure of attending with her mom. It was during this time that Kristen’s life changed and her mother passed away from a brain tumor leaving Kristen to wonder what life was about. After graduating college, Kristen took her mother’s advice and set out to see the world. During this time of exploration she realized how small one person is in the grand scheme of things. This came to be while visiting the ancient ruins in Rome, standing breathless in the great Cathedral of Hagia Sophia, and getting lost in the tiny streets of Venice. This realization ignited a fire within, a fire that created the desire to do more and be better, and to live for the moment, I guess you could say she received some holy wisdom.
After returning home from her travels Kristen focused on gaining the experience needed to one day pursue her dream of opening her own design studio. For over a decade, Kristen worked as a residential interior design consultant in both Arizona and Nevada, gaining valuable insight while developing her own style that reflects her love of nature, travel and modern simple sophistication with a hint of boho-esqueness, while also keeping the environment at the forefront of her priorities.
At home, she is a momma to her children Penelope and Giavanna, fur baby Rocky and a wife to Patrick, a man that supports her dreams and helps daily to create the life they both envision. Kristen is driven by love and family. Her goal in life is to be happy and see others happy and thrive. She believes sitting and waiting for your day to come is no way of living. She believes you should follow your dreams now, start now, and if you don’t know where to start, just start somewhere!!!!!
