Working with an interior designer can be an exciting yet intimidating experience. The key is finding someone who truly cares. Simple, right? Meeting Kristen Mullen of @kristendenadesign has made us a believer of a professional interior designer who, not only sticks to the budget, but someone who puts forth the importance of function and flow in a home. We did something a bit different this time – instead of giving Kristen two pieces to style, we gave her three and girl, did she deliver. Fun fact: she used to be an educator so we knew she’s a toughie and can handle a challenge. She’s a purveyor of making the space work based upon a person’s lifestyle and can be done so by simply being mindful of which furniture pieces and accents to design the space with. Take a look into Kristen’s way of creating spaces with form and function.
