​​​​​​​​​Priya has been practicing Interior Design for over 15 years, establishing herself in the Southwest after completing her Bachelors in Interior Design from Wayne State University in MI. She is an Allied member of ASID and what sets her apart is her rare ability to see project potential from conception down to the last brass tack. Her focus on top-notch personal service has brought many repeat clients and referrals. She has built a successful business on a reputation of exceeding clients’ expectations and more importantly, on guiding them on a journey of unique self-expression. 


From winning Design Excellence awards from the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) to being featured in Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine, AZ Foothills Magazine and Tucson Home & Garden Magazine, Priya has made her mark in luxury residential design. She also designed for the Arizona Foothills Magazine Showhouse in Paradise Valley.


​Priya was born and raised in NYC, and moved to MI with her family in her teens. Her career brought her to Scottsdale Arizona focusing on designing for high-end custom homes in North Scottsdale and Paradise Valley. In 2012 she followed her husband's work to Tucson and started her own Interior Design company to be able to have more flexibilty to start a family. She and her husband Mike have a 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son. ​Priya credits her upbringing in NYC and her East Indian heritage for her creativity and the reason why she is able to bring a global flair to her designs. Priya showed signs of artistic talent at a very young age, and is constantly inspired by her travels and nature.



Luxurious layers and unexpected charm make up Priya's signature style which results in brag-worthy spaces. Her focus is on creating bespoke interiors that encapsulate her clients needs and dreams. She places particular importance on the practicality and comfort of the spaces she designs. Priya has a passion for the natural environment and attempts to continuously push the boundaries of typical Southwest design. She creates spaces that look as though they've been collected over the years mixing different design styles to create the perfect balance between refined and rustic, complimenting the environment around us. 



The success of her projects lies with her design process and the level of customer service she provides, taking on a limited number of projects each year to ensure each and every client receives the time and attention they deserve. Priya manages the interior design process from conception to finalized installation, as well as working closely with architects, electricians, and other professionals to minimize costly mistakes in construction and furnishing. There are literally dozens of people involved in bringing each project to life, and Priya has relationships with some of the best in the industry.  From the knowledgeable showroom reps to the highly skilled trades, furniture makers, workrooms, and artisans, each member of her A-list team plays an important role in the process.​ Priya has all the resources to handle every aspect of a job even for out of state clients. She strives to be the finest in her discipline with unparalleled customer service, creating uniquely personalized spaces.   


When Priya isn’t designing, she’s wrangling her young kids Madelyn & Max, exploring Tucson with her husband and kids and peering through images of the latest trends and styles. She loves the outdoors, spectacular sunsets, good wine and reading.
