Otrada Design LLC started in 2008 from a desire to share my creativity, utilize my design skills and in essence make people’s lives more beautiful. It’s really what I have wanted to do since the age of 12 so not much has changed. Since I was a kid, I’ve been confident in knowing what I like and how to deliver that to others.

Everyone’s design aesthetic evolves and so does mine. I continue to be greatly affected by art, global adventures, animals, and a penchant for stylish living. I truly believe enjoying a beautiful home, office, hotel room, restaurant, or hospital is for everyone and our surroundings should be authentic, chic, and different . We must learn to celebrate what makes each of us special and stop following the latest trends. There is no standard on style.

I’m happy to assist you on your journey from figuring out your design preferences to executing the construction of your new home. It’s taking the skills that come naturally for me and using them to help others. It’s fulfilling to see the transformation and as I say to my clients on installation day, “It’s just beyond exciting” to see the results. Promise you won’t settle for less. I want you eager to ask for more beauty in your life so let’s get started!
