Kirsten Yadouga began her career in design studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. It wasn’t long before her eye for styling and trend forecasting led to her being recruited by Gianni Versace. It was there that she not only dressed some of the biggest names in entertainment, but also gained her first exposure to styling interiors by working with Versace’s world class visuals team. Throughout her 20+ years in fashion design, Kirsten has honed her signature multi-faceted aesthetic at companies such as Coach, Reed Krakoff, and Madewell, among others. She has traveled the world and launched collections both domestically and internationally, and her work has been featured in editorials in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Teen Vogue, Lucky, Refinery29, and InStyle.
Through renovating, re-building, and designing her own home, Kirsten discovered that she could use her design process in a bigger and more impactful way. Her creativity and passion for exceptional environments called her to study Interior Design. She began bringing her unique brand of eclectic and unexpected design elements, finely tuned eye for color, and aspirational taste level to projects across the U.S.
Kirsten’s work spans from small room refresh and styling updates to high budget residential new builds and renovations. Her combined passions of design and helping others have also guided her to participate in Housing Works’ annual Interior Design benefit, Design on a Dime.
Kirsten has always viewed her design work as more than purely aesthetic. By creating beautiful product and and surroundings, she is bringing joy to her clients homes and lives. The importance of infusing joy and positive energy in a home became abundantly clear after the birth of her oldest daughter. This life changing realization led her to explore the influence of intuition and the energetic healing abilities of our environments. Kirsten is a Reiki practitioner, holds a certification in Crystal Healing, and has studied Feng Shui under the world renowned Marie Diamond. She works with these modalities to create spaces that are beautiful, full of joy, and attracting positive energy. Optimizing the flow of energy at home allows her clients to not only love their space, but to improve their relationships, business, and overall health and well being whether they are physically inside of their home or not.
