Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Denver, CO, we are a fun, convenient, and affordable solution for designing your home.

We are currently building our bench of Interior Designers in Washington DC and the surrounding areas to provide clients with modern, custom, in-person design services. We are seeking experienced Interior Designers who are looking to grow their businesses and work with clients both virtually and in-person.

This is a freelance Interior Designer position, working locally with clients in Washington DC.
