Tristan’s love of beautiful interior spaces began in childhood while being raised in an 1886 Victorian home in Kansas by a mother and grandmother with great taste. She continued to arrange and rearrange her room, her apartments and, eventually, her own houses for fun. While living in the Chicago area, she discovered that the work she loved best was to design and decorate not only her own homes, but other people’s homes as well. This realization inspired her to begin a career change from education to interior design. Tristan has been happily living and working in the Denver area with her family of seven since 2006. Her main goal when working with clients is to create a space that is perfect for them – one they will love coming home to every day.
Tristan has a BS from Emporia State University in Elementary Education, is a Certified Interior Decorator, has her Associate Kitchen and Bath Designer designation from NKBA, and is currently working on an AS in Interior Design. Her ambition is to continue working with her clients in their great spaces and to teach interior design at college level one day.
Tristan feels strongly about giving back and donates a portion of her business net income annually to local charities & to St. Jude’s Hospital.
