From early on, Diana displayed a natural inclination toward aesthetics and a keen eye for detail. Art, colors, texture, and pattern have been Diana’s passion since she was little. Fueled by her passion, Diana pursued a formal education with Fox Valley Technical College at their Appleton campus, with study and a degree in Interior Design. Diana has equipped herself with a solid foundation in the principle of interior design, with training in the latest trends and smart home technologies.
Diana was born and raised in Thailand. She started her new life in the United States when she was 13 years old. Growing up in a household that celebrated her Thai heritage alongside Southeast Asia customs, Diana was captivated by the intricate details of Thai architecture and the delicate balance of interior spaces. At the same time, Diana was inspired by the sleek lines and minimalist approach of contemporary Southeast Asia design. Diana was also influenced by her stepfather, who is a contractor, and her mother who is in love with gardening and home decoration, driving her to become an Interior Designer.
At the heart of Diana’s philosophy is the belief that interior design has the power to transform lives. She views each project as an opportunity to create an environment that not only captivates the sense, while also enhancing the health and well-being of those who inhabit it. Diana’s designs strive to strike a delicate balance between form and function, seamlessly integrating practicality with beauty.
