Meet the designer.
Diane Kolak, Design Consultant and owner of Dwelement™ Home Design, LLC
I love designing all kinds of things—especially interiors. I approach each project using design principles that are second nature to me: balanced proportion, pleasing color, smooth flow, efficient and effective function. I believe a space should reflect its setting and its inhabitants, and that everyone deserves the practical and spiritual benefits of a well designed room. That's what led me to start Dwelement Home Design in 2009.
I'm an experienced art director and publication designer with a bachelor's degree in art and graphic design, and I've had a lifelong interest in architecture and interior design. For five years I spent my free time designing our ideal house, and in 2006 my husband and I were privileged to build it. I designed the house inside and out and won five awards in the local home builder's association home tour. To buy the plans for my modern farmhouse, see details here or email me. The house has since been featured in two magazines:
Fine Homebuilding's Annual Houses Issue, Spring 2009. Read the article.
Northern Home & Cottage, September 2007. Read the article.
I work from my home office near Traverse City, Michigan, but eDecor allows me to design a room anywhere in the world. In Northern Michigan, I offer a range of in-home design services as well as eDecor Plans. Contact me to determine which service fits your needs best.
Dwelement™ Home Design was formerly called Inspired Room Design.
