Over the years I've been blessed to find an interest in many different areas of design. And over time, I've found one common thread in all of my ventures: how to help others find their own personal expression and how to be creative.
Having landed a coveted position at California Closets (CC), leaders in premium and luxury space-management, I established a twelve-year long foundation, centered around design-organization, spatial planning and project administration. I ended this amazing career as the Design & Sales Manager, overseeing the entire team for the DC Metro area: all design-training, project reviews, product ordering, and acted as the CAD and Product Specialist for the entire franchise.
With a Bachelor's degree in Interior Design, and with years of learning the ins-and-outs of the trade (from customer interface, to design+manufacturing +installation), I opened my interior design business, DuVäl Design LLC, in the summer of 2011. I began by working on a few projects here-and there, while still managing the sales growth of CC.
In my short amount in this industry, I've been fortunate to work on really great projects--some of which include the Homeland Security building on 15th Street in DC, the Watergate South and West, the Embassy of Saudi Arabia, a former Ambassador to Mexico, professional athletes and so much more. And I have been honored to be named, "The One to Watch" by DC Modern Luxury and "Hot Talent" by Home&Design magazines.
At the beginning of 2017, I decided it was time to fulfill my passion of offering more than just casework--although I enjoyed every moment of it! And on Sept. 1st, I figured it was time to take all that I've practiced and to deliver a customized experience for each client, offering guidance, supervision, and the resources to help you create the space you want and need!
Thanks for taking the time to peek into my world! I sincerely appreciate your time and support. But be sure to take a look around and stay tuned as I have so much more to come!!

Hi! My name is Daniella, but you can call me Dani.
With a background in Real Estate for more than 6 years, my interest in interiors began while assisting in staging and showing homes for open houses. It really inspired me with how you can recreate a space with a good idea in mind and a few good accessories.
Here at DDLLC, I work side-by-side with DuVäl to make sure our day-to-day operations run smoothly. You’ll find me helping with project installations, assisting with project management and procurement, and anything else in between!
On my free time I love spending time with my husband, Jacob, and our 3-year old daughter, Nylah. I also have an affinity for cooking, shopping for anything vintage, and visiting new places.
