A London native, Doreen moved to Manhattan to pursue a career at Estee Lauder and later at Donna Karan Cosmetics and Home. It was there that she first fell in love with the process of creating, developing and accessorizing interior spaces.
Doreen later put those skills to work as assistant to architect, Peter Marino. On project after project, Doreen saw how structures come together and how the spaces within them come to life. She also saw things she wanted to change and ideas she wanted to explore. So, she herself made a change - furthering her studies at the New York School of Interior Design and founding her own design studio in Manhattan in 2001.
Today, Doreen works with interior design clients around the world from her two studio locations in New York & Florida.
While always guided by the tastes and needs of her clients, Doreen has a love for and is often inspired by the classical, translating it to a contemporary viewpoint. Structural harmony and focused editing are, to her, important elements of any successfully realized space. While emphasizing her signature style of sophisticated, relaxed elegance Doreen customizes every design to meet her clients' specific preferences.
