Dyan Ditolla Grey
My background began in fashion, having studied at Traphagen School of Fashion. I then evolved into the fine arts as an earth sculptor and photographer, affording me the opportunity to exhibit in a Museum in Italy, then continuing to show in Europe, Asia & the USA. These career choices expanded my interests in materials, space planning & environments.
My return to study interior design became a highlight and an opportunity to combine my experiences. My approach to space is one, which creates harmony, considers the soul and engages the senses to form a complete environment. I believe design has the potential to change our emotional state, our thoughts, and how we choose to live; it can enhance our quality of life and everyone who shares it.
I received my BFA from the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID). I began my design career in merchandising and space planning in retail environments. I later took a position with an esteemed designer in New York. This offered me the opportunity to be committed to more personal projects, residential and commercial. After some time I opened my own firm, DDG DESIGN STUDIO INC.
My completed and current projects include full interior renovations and furnishings in private homes, brownstones, apartments, offices, and other commercial spaces.
