Our clients appreciate thoughtfully curated elements stitched into a creative expression that transcends both the cycles of fashion and the ever-changing seasons of your life. At Duchess & Mer, we see that expression as the story we ultimately tell; a story that weaves the client and the home together into an epic masterwork. Most of all, you want the ease of an experienced & thoughtful expert team to guide the design & construction process.
We are selective in our engagements, typically working on just 2 to 3 projects per year, either for clients or through our own investment and restoration. The common criteria always being a property with a persona, just waiting for curation and new life.
Hi, I’m Diana – a creative & restless being who struggles with the mundanity of mass-produced design. Taking on the process of renovating, furnishing and styling several homes over the past decade has galvanized my interest in interiors and architectural design. For me, it’s about unlocking the potential for unique homes to tell their unique stories – stories that place our clients in the leading role. My approach is always to connect with the ‘soul’ of the home, and then work to bring its full character and personality to life.
I continue to be humbled and honored by the inquiries I receive seeking advice on, or my participation in, so many design and life styling adventures. I do offer consulting work on projects that align with the Duchess & Mer approach, and I am open to opportunities to co-create with other designers and architects.
I look forward to creating with you!
