Introduction: D2D Studio is a full-service design boutique, providing a balance of exuberance and elegance for your interior residential and commercial spaces. Whether you’re looking for advice on a new paint pigment for your business, want to renovate your entire home, or plan to build one from scratch, D2D Studio has the foundation and expertise you seek. Seamlessly integrating existing furnishings, collections, and photos, with carefully selected window and floor coverings, new furniture additions, organic lighting design, and artwork, D2D Studio finds a natural fit for your expectations. We curate like chameleons: our style of design will adapt to compliment your tastes. We’re able to work collaboratively or take complete control, depending on your individual needs, and we always deliver a finished, cohesively-designed space that will encourage everyone who enters it to feel at home. With Principal Designer and owner Lena G. Samuelson at the helm, D2D Studio has become a premier Denver-based interior design boutique, lauded by both cutting-edge clients and caring corporations for the grace with which they transform shelters into shrines of style and serenity. Lena was born in snow-crusted Fairbanks, Alaska, but grew tall in sun-kissed San Diego. After coming of age in the Golden State, she moved east and attained her BA in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Colorado. While in college, she studied abroad at the American Intercontinental University in London, and allowed her research to take her through Spain, Belgium, France, and a slew of other European countries, time that honed her edge for aesthetics. With the vibrant hues of Northern Spain and the winding labyrinths of London still echoing in her memory, Lena passed the National Council of Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) exam in October, 2008. Lena believes that space planning is the most critical element of design, and she puts faith in the conviction that form should follow function. She’s enlivened by contemporary works of art, furniture design, and sculpture, and she finds herself incorporating bursts of bliss into her designs by way of wall coverings, pillows, and art pieces. Both personally and professionally, she operates from the perspective that the visually pleasing and the seamlessly practical are simultaneously attainable. In her slivers of free time, Lena plays with and cooks for her two young sons. She lives in Denver, where she assuages her ocean-front homesickness by eating copious amounts of sushi. Although we have an hourly rate listed, we work within flat fees for specific scopes of work. We can provide more information after an initial consultation!

Lena and her team gave us great design ideas for our partial home remodel. We are very happy with the wood floors, the colors and the layout changes that we made to open up our living area! They had excellent contractors for the kitchen work, the floors, the paint, and it all turned out fantastic.

Lena was extremely responsive and easy to work with. She is a true professional at interior design and was able come to our home and immediately grasped what we wanted to do and had lots of ideas. She is able to work with a wide range of budgets. The process is like being on one of the home remodel shows, you come home and it is all done. POOF! Highly recommend working with Lena and D2D.

Loved working with Lena. She surpassed even our best expectations. From the design phase of finding out what my wife and I both like, to the final "reveal" day we couldn't be happier.

We've only just begun our work together but already I am completely confident that we made the right decision in hiring Lena and D2D. Her approach is exemplary, and is what makes design personal. Aside from her skill and operational process, she is so likable and easy to communicate with. I'm very excited for our project to be under way.
