The face of D Miko Design


Darlene is a much-loved designer by her clients for her visionary mindset and ability to create unique solutions tailored to her clients’ lifestyles. She brings passion, knowledge, big ideas and a contagiously happy personality to everything she does; and the result is stunning interior design that truly speaks to the people she works with.


“I’m inspired by travel, architecture, dancing in my kitchen (while my wannabe-chef hubby cooks up a storm) and good old-fashioned fun!


My foray into design was two-fold. While I was working on an upstart stationery design company I was also building a house, where I hired an interior designer to help me. There I was designing paper and a home simultaneously, working with colors, patterns and textures and I found that it made me so happy.


I began helping friends style their rooms, which turned into space planning, buying trips, and more styling. After two years of having a friend nag me to go to design school, I relented… and the rest is history!


One of our kitchen designs has been featured in a national TV advert, which I’m very proud of. Additionally, I’ve helped develop gift products for the retail sector.”


Alongside achieving a B.A. at the University of Rhode Island, Darlene studied interior design with the internationally acclaimed Interior Design Institute.

Your dreams and ideas + my design skills = your chic home
