I am passionate about interior design and believe the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is also a gathering place for family and friends and is my favorite part of the home. Your home should be a peaceful, restorative, inspiring, and uplifting place to be with loved ones. I would be delighted to help create your dream environment.

  I have been working in the architecture and design community for 20 years. I have been involved with projects in both the commercial and residential markets. I have been focusing on kitchen design specifically for the last 5 years. I bring a wide perspective to my position. 

Let me use my talents to get you the kitchen of your dreams…"

Here’s what my clients have to say…

DDK got me the kitchen of my DREAMS!  The beautiful redhead Dana was our designer and not only is she super talented but she’s easy to work with.  We had a tight space and wanted it all.  Somehow, she got us everything that we wanted and more.  We LOVE her suggestions too as she’s UP on all the latest kitchen appliances.  Thank you, DDK for making my kitchen dreams come true!

  I worked with Dana Martin to update our kitchen and family room. Dana was great in helping select countertops, cabinets, appliances and her special touches like adding beadboard to the ceiling. She did a fine job of marrying details into the den area. Her attention to detail was amazing!
