Meet Kristin Tavrides

Kristin Tavrides, the founder and creative force behind Bien Living Design, has had a love and passion for design her entire life. She attended Ohio State University and Harrington College of Design, with majors in French, Communications, and Interior Design. Before founding Bien Living Design, Kristin worked at Chicago’s DeStefano & Partners for four years.  

While Kristin finds design and aesthetic inspiration everywhere she looks, her greatest source of inspiration is you, the client. She wholeheartedly believes that form and function are crucial and is dedicated to designing a space that not only appeals to the senses, but that also makes sense for your lifestyle and family. Kristin loves working with people as much as she loves working with swatches and paint samples, and she can’t wait to help you turn your house into a home. She firmly believes that designing an environment together should be a pleasure, not a chore, and works hard to make her customers happy at every turn.

Kristin is widely known for her Long Distance Design services. She’ll design a stylish, practical room for you no matter where you live. She was struck by the idea after meeting lots of new homeowners when she was blogging as Mrs. Quiche on Weddingbee. Young families in their first home can’t always afford a full-time designer, but with Bien Living’s long distance services, they can work with a seasoned designer at the fraction of the cost.

Kristin has been featured on Daily Candy, ShelterPop, CS Interiors Magazine, and Gilt City. When she’s not designing, she loves to travel, and her young daughter keeps her busy.

Keep up with Kristin and Bien Living Design on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or the Bien Living Blog.
