Hi! I'm Irene, the interior stylist behind Design in Decor, a Washington, DC-based residential interior decoration services firm.
I started Design in Decor in 2010 as a blog primarily to have a creative outlet. While working in my technology job, I yearned for a space where I could explore the world of design, fashion, art, and interiors. I always loved the way personal style transcended into interior design, and I wanted a place to delve into this concept. My initial focus was to highlight how different fashion trends and styles could be mimicked in home decor.
Through the years, although both my personal and interior aesthetics have evolved, the concept of homes and spaces representing personal style still stands. I think that an interior space should be a form of self-expression, telling the story and lifestyle of the person living in it. It is the personal elements that really make a space accessible, inviting, and comfortable.
Today, I have revamped this site to highlight my new designs and decoration services. I am drawn to light, clean styles that incorporate modern elements within classic designs in an intentional, cohesive way. I like spaces that are attainable and balanced, mixing high and low, new and vintage, neutrals and quirky pops of unexpected.
