Oh hey! I’m Krystal, owner, designer and colour enthusiast at Krystal Kristiansen Design.
I’ve always been passionate about design. Turning blank canvas spaces into rooms that are welcoming, thoughtful and an extension of ones personality. From a young age I would flip through catalogs and dream up floor plans for my own bedroom. I’d keep myself busy making shopping lists for decor, painting walls and coming up with creative solutions to work within a kids budget. Deep down (maybe not too deep) I’ve always known what I hoped to do when I grew up!
Fast forward a few years and here we are! I love pops of colours as much as I love a neutral balance to make those colours pop. Clean lines mixed with florals and layered textures make me swoon. It could be said that I’m a little bit modern, but in a warm and whimsical way! Matte black is my favourite colour, and also coincidentally how I drink my dark roast coffee. I believe in splurging on the things that matter, and saving where you can, to find the perfect blend between good design and staying on budget. For me, candid photography makes for wonderful art.
My whole approach to design is this. Creating beautiful, magazine worthy spaces is great, but creating beautiful spaces that spark joy and conversation among family and friends is better! That’s exactly what Krystal Kristiansen Design is all about. Designing homes that are both comfortable and functional, personal and tell the story of YOU is what makes my heart sing!
