Our Team


Our Interior Design Team

Genaro Headshot Dec 2015Genaro Lagdameo is the Director of Design at DI, with a BA in Interior Design from the University of Santo Thomas in the Philippines.  Creative sensibility and fine taste combines with his ability to sense minute details in each room, which bring each design to its highest level. He enriches his clients’ lives by listening to their needs and taste inclinations as his inspiration, to create highly innovative and functional spaces that truly welcome his clients home.  He continually succeeds in his mission to create clients for life, who wouldn’t consider making a change without seeking his guidance.



Carla Headshot Dec 2015Carla Padour, CID, has degrees in Interior Design and Fashion Merchandising.  Designing for each client’s personal tastes and style instead of flaunting a “signature look”, and realizing clients’ dreams with quality execution within an established budget are Carla’s forte. She brings a balance of scale, light, proportion, color dynamic and texture to every space, and her excellent taste in fabric combinations make clients appreciate why they brought a designer into their homes in the first place.




Kristen LoveKristen Love brings critical thinking, organizational skills and problem solving to our team as she manages the practical aspects of our projects, placing orders and minding contract details. A cheerful smile, friendly voice and willingness to go the extra mile are also greatly appreciated by our clients and us.





Marcella Headshot Dec 2015Marcella McCracken is a project assistant at DI, and is vitally important to our mission to ensure that every client’s project goes smoothly from order date to installation. She tracks each order continuously throughout a project and coordinates and schedules with our workrooms and delivery team.  She is the cheerful voice on the phone when one calls DI, and we all love her willing spirit.




Karen Headshot Dec 2015Karen Shoener, CID, is the President of DI, dedicated to making sure that each and every client relationship is nurtured.  She is proud of the fact that repeat and referral business has been a huge part of DI’s success over the years.  Hands-on with nearly every project, Karen believes that the beauty of brainstorming with her staff is an integral part of bringing each project to its highest self.  Raised in a “builder family”, she delights in client consultations related to construction and renovation, but also has the business sense and attention to detail that comes of a CPA background.
