Welcome to Diana Cutler Designs
Whatever an ideal home is for you, that’s what I intend to create. Unlike other designers who may have a certain style, my job is to morph into your aesthetic, to convey in your physical environment what is most important to you. Towards that end, I have developed a special technique to understand what home is for my clients. We delve into the psychology of space, because design is emotional and visceral. Through this process, clients say they feel heard and “gotten.” I become a translator of your vision, conceptualizing and creating a home that envelops you in a profoundly personal way.
I want clients to walk in their door and feel embraced by their space, rejuvenated by the sanctuary we’ve developed. When your home fills you up, then you can go out into the world and do what you do, knowing your perfect haven will be there to return to.
Clients say I realize their dreams for their home far better than they could have ever imagined. But don’t just take my word for it. Please see my testimonials page or request a reference before we meet. And, of course, our first consultation is always on me.
Designing fuels me, it’s been my passion for over two decades, and I’d love the chance to share that with you.
Creating striking beauty for your home.

The kitchen marries functionality with aesthetics more than any room. It’s rewarding to renovate the heart of a home into a space that inspires the chef and serves the family. I guide you through the many decisions around the latest appliances and trends in finishes, furnishings, and fixtures. The end result is a kitchen that’s inviting, durable, and stylish.
What does unwinding look like to you? How do you balance everyday living with desires to entertain? A living room is a gathering space for the purpose of relaxation and connection, but that looks different for everyone. I work to create unity between the forms a design might take and the roles this sanctuary provides for you.
Second to kitchens, bathrooms are a unique juxtaposition of utility and grace. The best bathrooms perform their functions effortlessly, where the many activities of personal care are accommodated without fuss, and where simple lines allow for easy flow through the space for those the room serves.
Designing new spaces is a passion for me. I am invigorated by the challenge of transforming a home with the addition of something new, be it a breakfast nook, entertainment center, wine room, children’s study, or deck off a master. Your desires fuel the plan, and together we’ll expand the possibilities for the experiences your home provides.
Our clients say we realize their dreams for their home better than they could have ever imagined. But don’t just take our word for it. Please see our testimonials or request a reference before we meet. And, of course, our first consultation is always on me.
What We Do
I have over two decades of experience in every aspect of interior design, from designing complete remodels to selecting furnishings and finishing touches. Using a special process I’ve developed, I discern how you wish to live in your home and what is important to you. Based on this exploration and my extensive knowledge of materials, furnishings and special resources, I develop a plan that will meet your needs, dreams and desires better than you could have done on your own.
How We Work
Our first meeting is complimentary, and during it, I’ll use my signature technique to understand what home means to you. I’ll then submit a proposal detailing the expected costs of the materials, labor and my services that we will review together. I’ll show you samples and photographs of the materials we will use before any of it is purchased. Because I take the time to understand at a core level what home means to my clients, most people see me as uniquely qualified to translate their ideas into a synergistic design.

"I’ve known Diana for almost a year now and I am much better off having met her – and so is the interior of my home! We were introduced when I had decided that I was going to remodel the kitchen in my home in Bend, OR. I had recently moved to Bend from Seattle, WA and it was a surprising and delightful coincidence that Diana was a Seattle transplant too!
I had a very specific idea of what I wanted my kitchen to look like, but structural constraints soon threw the proverbial monkey wrench into my plans. Diana saved the day and, I might add, my sanity! Not only was she able to capture my “image” of the kitchen but added design ideas I didn’t even know I would love. She also laid out a vision for the main living areas of my home that will tie-in beautifully with the new kitchen – a win/win for me!
Cost always seems to rear its’ ugly head whenever a project is being considered. But I have learned that what you spend up front will save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars later. Not to mention a finished project that you will love, as will everyone who comes to your home, for years to come!
Thank you Diana, I am delighted to have you as a new friend!" – Basia
"I highly recommend Diana Cutler with DC Designs. My partner and I have worked with Diana on the remodel of two kitchens, and both times she perfectly captured our vision and the functionalities to best meet our family’s needs. Throughout both projects, Diana was professional: consistent in her communication, timely in deliverables, and an excellent listener"- Sarah and Chris
