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 part-time, 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, of that year, 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!
HUGE thanks to my lovingly supportive wife, Sara, who is more than I could have (or would have) ever dared to ask for! As a flight paramedic for the The US Dept of Defense (DOD), she is immensely talented in all she does, and is the inspiration for me to do better, to be better, and to offer my best self, to everyone I meet! I am truly blessed!!
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!!
