As a designer, musician and artist, Eileen Kathryn Boyd thinks in composition: a room is her canvas, and color is her medium. Her designs are always well-considered and curated to the minute detail. Balance is a key phrase in Eileen’s vocabulary, with elements of color, scale and pattern coming together to create a harmonious collaboration within a space. A mother of two, she understands that function must accompany beauty and is able to achieve a rare blend of both livable and stylish — with comfort considered just as vital as aesthetic.
