How I Got Here...
I grew up in New Canaan, Connecticut, and graduated from Boston College with a B.A. in International Studies. After studying and working abroad, a love of travel and all things outdoors, I moved to Vail where I founded a high-end event planning company...a good fit for a detailed obsessed Virgo like myself! Returning to Boston, I segued into corporate event planning, until 2007 when I went to work for a luxury diamond company...again, where details and drive were key.
After meeting my husband and having our two girls, we made the move to Hingham. A passion for interior design, attention to detail, a love of all things fabulous, and an inspiration to keep things bold, fresh, & functional led to the creation
of van der Kieft Designs.
I love what I do for so many reasons. I'm constantly inspired by transforming spaces with gorgeous fabrics, wallpapers, furniture and art. I have a self admitted obsession with color. I have amazing Clients.
But what I love most is that I get to help people create beautiful, timeless spaces within their homes. Individuality is key, as is taking the time to listen. I work with Clients to create and implement a vision, ensuring all the way that they feel excited and "at home" in their transformed space.
