Growing up with a father in the hospitality industry across the country, Devin’s eyes were drawn to beautiful and inspiring interiors at an early age. Following grade school in the Boston area and high school in southern California, Devin earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History with honors and a Master of Arts degree in Interior Design. After moving to Seattle, she worked for a residential architect for two years and then as a Senior Designer at NB Design Group, an award-winning residential and commercial interior design firm. During this time, she lead projects for Forbes 400 clients and their estates, collaborated with architects to design and remodel high-end residences, managed downtown condo renovations and refurbishments and provided consultation for furniture, finishes and paint colors for numerous homes in the Pacific Northwest. Several of her projects received awards and are featured in publications such as Luxe, Sunset, Renovation Style and Seattle Homes and Lifestyles.
While earning her Master’s degree, Devin pursued her interest in art and the decorative arts. Her thesis “The Interrelation of Art and Space: An Investigation of Late 19th and Early 20th Century European Painting,” received the Joel Polsky Achievement Award from the ASID Education Foundation and is featured in IIDA’s Knowledge Center. In 2010, Devin took a summer sabbatical and pursued further study of art at NYU and earned a Certificate in Appraisal Studies in Fine and Decorative Arts.
