A passion for design blossomed in Kristen Slagle as she watched her artistic parents build their own house at an early age. Since then, her excitement for design has continued to grow and is apparent in all of her exciting and award winning projects.
Kristen goes the extra mile (literally) when looking for design inspiration. She has traveled the world, visiting countries as diverse as Peru and Switzerland, and always comes away with new perspectives on the possibilities of design.
Her passion for design has culminated in several roles within the design industry, but since 2014 she has been a Senior Interior Designer with Haven Design Works. HDW’s attention to detail and customer service fits in well with Kristen’s work ethic, while her ability to jump through hoops to pull off any design has contributed to some very exciting projects in cities throughout the country.
When starting a new project, Kristen will pick an image or fabric to stay focused on throughout the process so that each element in the design follows the same theme and results in a cohesive finished product. Many of her designs this year have utilized mixed metals, bold colors and unique materials, and in her upcoming projects she’s planning to incorporate natural wood tones and Bohemian/Global styling.
There is no doubt that Kristen also loves testing the limits on new styles or trends when clients are willing. It takes more than just a keen eye for design to be successful in this endeavor, it requires a strong and trusting relationship that allows for Kristen to take the steps necessary to pull off something wholly unique and spectacular.
Make sure you stay tuned for Kristen’s latest project, Traditions in Cumming, GA, which she describes as “Funky, Moody and Modern.” We can’t wait to share the photos when this project launches!
