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 a BS from Emporia State University, AS in Interior Design, Associate Kitchen and Bath Designer designation from NKBA, and is an Allied ASID member.

Tristan is the proud mother of five young adults and lives in Topeka, KS with her two youngest children and their little dog, Joy. She enjoys splitting her time working between Denver and Topeka, and works remotely on design projects across the country. 

Tristan feels strongly about giving back and donates a portion of her business net income annually to local charities & to St. Jude’s Hospital.
