Welcome, I'm Dawn

Principal Designer & Founder

For over 20 years, I have customized homes with personalized layouts, modern luxurious touches and stylish aesthetics that inspire comfort.

I merge knowledge from my Interior Design degree and my years of experience (including a year immersed in the sawdust-filled world of woodworking) to create designs my clients adore.

I’m dedicated to making things happen and creating sophisticated, functional and sustainable designs. I enjoy choosing materials that are eco-friendly, luxurious and timeless for all my projects.

Whether I’m coordinating with contractors and architects on-site or meticulously overseeing the craftsmanship in the carpenter’s shop, you’ll always find me enthusiastic and with an unwavering commitment to quality. I have a deep-rooted passion for this industry and I would love to share my expertise and passion with you.

As your expert, I specialize in bringing your vision to life whether a gut renovation or a bespoke kitchen or bath. I would love to learn more about how you’d like to live in your dream home.

Turning houses into homes

I’m a Montana native, mom to three, and outdoor enthusiast. I love building things, space planning, and getting into the details of the project… because it’s the details that matter!

What inspires me?

Creating beautiful, functional spaces for busy families.

Why Paradigm Interior Design?

Growing up, the idea of a personalized, luxurious space designed with function and beauty in mind was unfamiliar to me. It wasn’t until I began to study interior design that I truly grasped the transformative power of a thoughtfully crafted living space. I’m passionate about bringing that to all my projects I work with.
To me, design means so much more than whether your pulls are brass or bronze, it asks a simple question, “does your house feel like a home?” The answer that everyone deserves to shout is, “Yes!” So, does your house actually feel like a home? If not, let me take you step-by-step to being in a space you want to be in.

I am beyond grateful to create a new sense of home for you.

Extensive industry knowledge

We’ve been doing this for over 20 years and have multiple repeat clients. We’ll introduce you to the best vendors and recommend the unique materials. We’ve built relationships with vendors and the trades so that when something arises, we’ve got you covered.
