OUR CREATIVE PROCESS
Elan Design is a full-service, residential interior design company based in Washington, DC. Founder, Fine Artist, and Principal Designer, Eryn Oruncak, is known for her presentation of her fine art paintings, refined details and evocative spaces.
We approach projects considering the architecture, and the perspective of both the feminine and masculine view-points of our clients. We appreciate the strength that quality craftsmanship brings to your surroundings, so we connect you with the myriad of quality resources available only to interior design professionals.
It's been our experience that the most impactful way to elevate a space is through the artwork, which is a major influence on how we develop our projects.
As a fine artist with a palpable enthusiasm for fine art, we offer custom commissions and art consultations to individuals and design professionals to help you invest in meaningful artwork for your rooms. We work with your existing collection of art or help you to acquire complementary pieces that enhance the aesthetic of your home.
“When we honor the artwork, the success of the space is practically guaranteed.”
I established Elan Design in 2016 with my daughters in the forefront of my mind. Our vision is a global design house where interiors, art, and fashion live. Our mission is to help our clients bring luxury and love into their homes so together we may all thrive.
"My superpower is the ability to quickly read a space and incorporate what my clients “wish” for it to be.
What we create is something that exceeds all expectations of what was available and how much their home could improve the way they live their lives."
Eryn’s International Business degree from The George Washington University combined with her creativity brings a well-rounded point of view to her clients who seek to connect luxury products with family friendly lifestyles. Eryn has traveled to twenty-seven countries and counting. Travel continues to influence her art and interior designs.
Her fine art background combined with an inherent eye for design provides a unique, and oftentimes instinctual perspective on the use of color, texture, and details. The functionality and practicality of the space are always a priority as she develops her concepts.
With a discerning taste for luxury product and an accurate understanding of a high-profile family household, Eryn is often sought-after to create comfortable, tailored spaces to suit a busy household's every need. She is a talent uniquely positioned in both the interior design and art communities.
I worked with Eryn to design and renovate/create my new patio area. We were starting from a blank slate since that space wasn't included when I renovated the house several years before. I absolutely LOVE the final result!! She has a great eye for space, really captured my thoughts on how I wanted to use the area and was able to create a flow of style from indoor to outdoor which makes the home feel so cohesive. As this is not my area of expertise, I believe working with Eryn is really what made the vision come to life. I thought the process went smoothly; good communication throughout. And, I appreciated the range of options she prepared for me to choose from so I could decide where to splurge and where to be practical. It was a balanced plan and provided me a realistic sense of budget. I would definitely work with Elan Design again! --Nicole S.
