“Here is one of the few effective keys to the design problem: the ability of the designer to recognize as many of the constraints as possible; his willingness and enthusiasm for working within these constraints.” –Charles Eames
I’m Eleni Domanos, Owner and Designer at Design Tree Interiors. I strive to create spaces that reflect the character and lifestyle of the individuals that inhabit them and add value to their home or place of work. My personalized approach to each interior design project, along with a positive attitude and energy, results in unique and cohesive spaces. And an exciting journey. I recommend elements in my designs that are inspired by the environment and location, as well as the client’s personal interests. My travels and education have inspired me to appreciate and contribute globally influenced elements to my designs. My approach to each project is to inspire healthy living, harmonious environments, respect the needs, life and work styles of my clients.
I graduated with a B.S. in Interior Design 19 years ago and my first project was a small cafe in a Chicago University neighborhood. Following commercial projects I started designing kitchen and baths. I continue to work with small businesses to re-imagine their brand while creating harmonious and welcoming interiors that encourage productivity and generate new customers. I work with homeowners providing services for home rehabs, new home construction, single rooms or focused decor. I love creating spaces for clients that apply their individualism, personal as well as professional needs, and well-being. I’m always happy to work with your contractors, but I prefer to use contractors through my work experience, who I entrust with the details. I’ll be happy to assist you collect bids for your project. My design process is focused on productive communication and thoughtful plans. I project the hours I believe your project will take through my experience and have an hourly rate. The process and rates will all be explained at our first meeting. I look forward to creating with you.

Every being deserves a space of pulchritude, a place to rejoice and thrive. This is why I offer services that enable potential clients with an array of budgets to hire a designer. I believe everyone should live beautifully. I’m aware that my designs and all they encompass, brings purpose to their style of living, so I’m conscientious when specifying products and introducing ideas to my clients. If they need a holistic approach to their project or are a family with special needs and interests, I’ll work hard to meet their requirements and increase their product knowledge as well. I want all their decisions to feel appropriate and their experiences joyful. Not every project is without turbulence, but on this journey we’re partners.
