Welcome to KD Designs!

Thanks for visiting! I am Krista Shugars, Owner and Principal Designer at KD Designs – Decorating Den Interiors. I am a Certified Residential Interior Designer and Certified True Color Expert, possessing all of the creative talents to make your home interior dreams a reality. I am proud to have the support of the Decorating Den Interiors, an award-winning decorating firm with over 50 years in the industry and approximately 200 owners worldwide.


Interior Design and Decorating is truly my passion! I love working with my clients to help them make their home and lives more beautiful. I am living my best possible life, doing what I love. I have a wonderful blended family of TEN (that’s us above!) plus a sweet and lovable Goldendoodle named Nala (like the Lion King). Our combined crew ranges in ages from middle school to college graduates who are proudly off of their parents’ payroll. Our life is busy but full of so many blessings and nicely balanced. When I’m not designing and warmer weather prevails, I enjoy relaxing by the water in our outdoor space. The beauty of that setting is timeless, and I appreciate it every day.


I firmly believe you should LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE. I am excited to work with you to help turn your inspiration and dreams into a livable reality in your home. When I come to your home, I bring an extensive array of products covering the home furnishings market, encompassing all styles from classic traditional to modern contemporary. Your time is valuable! I will show you samples of custom window treatments, bedding ensembles, floor covering, wall covering, accessories, lighting, upholstered furniture and case goods all in the comfort of your home, so you don’t have to run around town.

I sincerely look forward to working with you to customize a design perfect for your home & lifestyle.


My clients love my personalized service, customized designs, and the products that I bring together especially for them. They appreciate that their home will look special and unique, and not have a similar design or products that others have purchased from the same store in the area. I think you will find that I am both fun and easy to work with. I like to learn about how you live in your home and so I can help you make it a space that is comfortable and a place you will be proud to host your friends and family.

My clients have expressed that they like working with an interior designer who doesn’t charge a design fee. In my business, I pride myself on my ability to work within my clients’ budgets and with their style preferences, while they pay only for the products they select. We work with you whether your project is big or small. And we don’t have to do it all at once! I will work with you on a plan to bring it all together on your budget and on your time frame. I look forward to working with you!
