ABOUT

"You should be happy and comfortable in your space.  It needs to function well and reflect your personal style."

WHO I AM

WHAT I DO

WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY

MY CORE VALUES

 

I am a Philadelphia based Interior Designer known for my joy-filled, soulful spaces, alive with vintage notes and surprising elements.   

 

I create beautiful, livable environments that are fresh and vibrant, while still honoring the architecture and era of the property.

 

I am most happy when I'm immersed in a creative project!  I'm always on the hunt for a well-constructed, vintage piece of furniture to transform, and I like to include at least one of my creations in every design.

 

 

Work with integrity

Deliver what I promise

Provide value for money spent

KALYN MATTHEWS

Principal Designer 

  "I enjoy the character of vintage architecture, infused with saturated color and unexpected elements.  My interiors feel collected over time, but with a modern sensibility."

MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

I start with what you have.  I enhance the features and character of the space.  I waste nothing.  I mix old with new.  I use color to fine-tune the mood and excite the senses.  I believe that rooms should feel collected over time, but with a modern sensibility. Every space should evoke an emotional warmth and bring a smile to your face.

I maximize the client's budget by masterfully blending old with new, high end with more affordable, which also results in interesting and nuanced designs.
