Manhattan-based creative Daun Curry is one of today's hottest emerging interior designers.

With experience in both residential and luxury commercial projects, Curry remains authentic to her bold interior aesthetic -- a design approach largely influenced by fashion.

The designer's intent is to create spaces that are a direct correlation to the lifestyle of each client. Curry's clients are living in today's fast-paced, style-driven world and they want their homes to be a reflection of themselves and the lives they live.
