Our Story

Our  story was really simple.  We met several years ago working on a few projects together.  There was an instant meeting of the minds on what a great client experience should be.  Our obvious passion and connection to design took us to exploring how to bring that quality with our experience to the table for every project.   It wasn't long before we were talking about starting our own design firm to ensure the mission statement was the best client experience to each and every client.  


We are so excited you are here and reading this which will bring us the opportunity to work with you on your project.  Thank you for visiting us, relax, look around and give us a call today to book your in home consultation.   We can't wait to meet you!

Doreen Morris-Findlay

I was born in New York City across the street from the Bronx Zoo.  It was an amazing place to grow up.  I had the Zoo on one side of the street and the Botanical Gardens on the other.  As a child I thought everyone had elephants in their backyard.  

I am a Mom & Grandma, Life Long Equestrian, Artist and Interior Designer.  I have lived in New York, Connecticut and now Massachusetts.  My career as a Custom Cabinetry Designer started in 1990 and I have never looked back.  I went to Fairfield University in CT for Interior Design and worked with some of the most talented Designers , Artist and Builders.  All of which have mentored me , gave me their trust and their clients.  I have done projects big and small from a 9  story building on 5th Avenue to One room safe houses for Battered Woman.

Then in 2012 I got the opportunity to learn the other side of this business, Manufacturing.  I became a Representative for my favorite Cabinet Manufacturer and that has been invaluable.

Now I am so excited to take on the challenge of becoming a partner at Artisan Home Designs!

While a student in elementary school her favorite subject was Art. “I knew from my early childhood that I want to become an Artist.” says Nadejda, “I was always a very creative kid”.

They were her first clients. She started her interior design journey very early, attending a vocational Design Academy while still in High School. She went on to finish her bachelors degree in interior design at Univers-Moldova University in 2008.
