WELCOME TO Elan Design

A MESSAGE FROM eryn
From as early as I can remember, I recognized key components that create a luxury environment, and noticed how a luxury environment gave the sense of ease and motivation throughout the day. When I create a space, I am ever mindful that the health of the home directly affects the health of the person.
Through my travels around the world, I experienced this first hand. There was that feeling. You know the feeling... The space picks up your energy field and practically carries it around. You feel a lightness in your body and your mind. Life is easy and anything is possible.
Daily tasks don't seem overwhelming. We can gather all the strength, confidence, power and peace our energy needs just by how we design our environments. Home is a place of love and comfort. Or as we like to say at Elan Design, love & luxury.
Lucky for me, I have a superpower. I can hear the conversation among the different pieces in a room and read the energy that composition is creating. That collaboration of all of the elements in a space is what creates the environment our energy absorbs. The sensory cues in a space send messages to the mind which have an effect on our thoughts, feelings, and actions.
I noticed that "home" affected my daughters, even at a young age. They're happy. They gather positive energy because they have nice spaces, nice food, and their parents are in a good mood. It's a pleasant atmosphere. One day, one of the mommies asked me if I could decorate her home the same way I decorated mine so her family was pleasant, too.
... And Elan Design was born.
"My superpower is the ability to read the energy in a space and incorporate
how it can best serve the household. What I create is an environment that exceeds all expectations of how much furnishings and artwork actually dictate a sense of well being."
HOW WE HELP YOU
In its very basic form, interior design the way we decorate our homes. When done right, all of the layers of a space come together and create a beautiful conversation. I believe we all sense this conversation in the rooms. We help you identify what are the best options in the market that you can incorporate in your home.
We work closely with you to incorporate everything you want that space to do, and even better, how you want it to make you feel. One that's best for your spirit to thrive. We make sure the space functions to your specifications, so that daily tasks are easy and light.
Like you, we know how important it is to have finished spaces, and we guide you through thoughtful, intentional purchasing to get you there.
Living in luxury is attainable for anyone who wants to identify what their environment needs to be for them. The smells and sounds, the air, the fabrics throughout the space. They all send cues to our brain that we are safe, we have comfort, and our environment supports our happiness and well being. This is what luxury means to us.
We want you to live your life surrounded in love & luxury. And we know that's important to you, too.
WHO WE HELP
If you've gotten this far down the page, we can absolutely help you!! You're our kind of people. Invested in how to make your environment the best it can be so that you can be the best you can be.
Like you, I believe that the home is the foundation for your life, your work and your family. I've studied the science on the effects a well crafted room has on our brain, and the ways beauty and art enhance our mental, physical, and emotional health.
We have great communication with executives, entrepreneurs, and busy professionals who are mindful of the holistic approach to their professional and personal success. We know how important your calendar is to you and that you want to know your options to make the best decision.

We've watched our projects advance from private residences into some of our clients' office spaces. And see first hand the benefits of well designed spaces. Within a year, these clients received promotions and increased their income.
I want to help you achieve this same sense of wellness and success in your homes.
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.
"Working with Eryn was a truly a dream. She had such thoughtful, creative and unique ideas for my space at a variety of price points. I loved chatting through all the options with her and was really able to visualize the finished project. She came up with ideas I never would have thought of, but made me feel both comfortable with and excited for them. I can't wait to get my hands on the items she suggested- and then work with her again for another space!
Thank you Eryn, it was truly a pleasure and I am so grateful to you!"

"I could have never done this without you! I never dreamed it would look this good." -- Jacob A.
I hired Eryn to first redo our powder room, and then to turn a sitting room into my office. I have not used a designer before and there was definitely a learning curve to understand how to take advantage of Eryn's expertise. The powder room is amazing ... elegant, understated, yet just about every person notices how beautiful it is. My office is exactly what I wanted, although I didn't know what I wanted. Eryn was able to design a space that just makes me happy to be in it. And she was willing to try and use pieces that we already had. I spend quite a bit of time on video and I get many compliments about my background! Eryn was easy to work with! -- Christie S.
Eryn is a wonderful designer! She helped transform my house into the grown-up living space that I always wanted. Her eye for design is fabulous but I also appreciate her budget sense. She is willing to work with your budget but also pushes for items that are truly worth the price because they give your space that wow factor. She is an amazing artist as well and helped complete some of my spaces with custom art pieces that we love. I loved working with Eryn so much that she helped update nearly 50% of my home (LR, Family room, powder room, kitchen, master bedroom and guest room). -- Jessica W.
"Elan Design is absolutely the best design firm I've ever worked with. Often you'll work with a designers who force their design and ideas on you. It's kind of scary and can be costly too. I've been talked into buying expensive pillows I hated and suggested the worst paint color ever. Eryn is such a delight, has an amazing eye for design, and she just simply gets it. She's managed to work in family heirlooms/antiques into my funky/modern style keeping in mind functionality is an absolute must in my house!
I'd consider myself pretty savvy in design. I'm the person people would call for design advice. I've let Eryn go to town on my kitchen, family rooms, and bedrooms -- that should say a lot!!! I love knowing that I have someone absolutely amazing to call with really unique and brilliant ideas AND she saves me time and money too. I'm no longer buying random stuff that doesn't quite fit, match, or feel I need to change out since my rooms never seemed finished. Now I have rooms that are finally complete (woohoo) and I absolutely love, love them. Elan Design should be your first call for your next design project!!!" --Mara W.
Full five stars!! Eryn is a wonderfully talented designer and artist. She took an empty dining space with dated fixtures and painting, and turned it into a gorgeous, rich, classy dining room that we will enjoy for YEARS. She handled everything from the initial conception to hiring the contractors for painting/electrical work to personally shopping for accessories on the dining table. She stayed within my budget, met my timeline, and was always responsive to my calls/texts. She told us when to splurge (an incredible chandelier) and where to save... I am a Type-A lawyer by trade and have a hard time giving project control to someone new. Through this project, she was able to help me loosen up and trust her. She's truly a talent and I find myself fortunate that I didn't get scared of her big ideas early on. I am already planning to hire her again! -- Rachel N.
