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:  To deliver the best client experience for each project, on time, on budget and the highest client satisfaction!  To ensure our clients enjoy the experience and we give them the design they didn't think possible.  We are good listeners and its all about you!

Doreen Morris

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

I am a 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.  Bitten by the remodeling bug when I bought my first home I then was compelled to college at  Fairfield University in CT for Interior Design.  I have been blessed with projects as big as a 9 story building on Fifth Avenue in New York to small ones like  Studio Apartment safe houses for Battered Woman.   

I am a strong advocate for an Organic Lifestyle,  A Green Future and Natural Feel Good Spaces.   My favorite designs lean towards an Eclectic Dynamic Space, with an appreciation for Rustic Classics.  I love to work with my hands and I'm always seeking out the Artisans' who are talented at their craft, love and passion for what they bring to the clients project.

While traveling abroad I met my Husband in his homeland of Scotland and we now reside in Massachusetts for the past 12 years.   

I am so excited now for my journey as a partner and principal at Artisan Home Designs!  

Nadejda Rutman 

Born in Chisinau, Moldova, Nadejda always had a passion for Art. 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”. Nadejda’s parents still remember her first artistic expression on the walls of the house. “I’ve always enjoyed the process of picking out wall colors, wallpaper patterns, hardwood floors,  window draperies, for myself, my friends and our relatives.” Says Nadejda. 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. After graduating, she was lucky to start her interior design career at a building company "Matimcons". Working at Matimcons, she was introduced to Villeroy & Boch, Axor, Hasgrohe, Devon-Devon and other famous brands. She instantly fell in love with their quality and design. Her work has been published in Eastern European Magazines and Web Publications. “I love to travel and during my first visit to United States, I met my husband.” Says Nadejda. Today, Nadejda resides in the greater Boston area with her Husband, Two Kids, and a Parrot. In the Boston area, she has worked as a kitchen designer for over 6 years in various showrooms, gathering industry and local experience. She has also completed several commercial design projects, and is proud to patronize them often.
