Kristin Hazen

meet owner & founder

With over 20 years in the design industry, Kristin and her team have been featured in multiple national publications, and have won industry awards such as an Iconic Top Designer and Winner of the Kitchen Design Contest in 2022. KHD has garnered a reputation in AZ and beyond for their purposeful and elegant interiors and their exceptional client experience. 

Her creative juices first stemmed from her years as an accomplished pianist with plans to attend college as a music major. However, her deep love for the aesthetic of design was too high and ultimately led to her pursuing a career in interior architecture...But, bigger plans and the desire to craft her own unique journey led Kristin to strike out on her own in 2013, and she has been collaborating with her own amazing clients and the best builders and architects in the industry ever since. Thankful for her lifetime of passion for antique stores and flea markets, she looks to bring unexpectedly beautiful and unique pieces into each of her designs. 

After studying a semester in London, she developed a passion for travel which has led to frequent trips abroad to discover unusual pieces with a profound history and repurpose them into beautiful charming objects in clients' interiors that become a fascinating part of their home's surroundings. As it is said, determination pays off; therefore, she has spent her career striving to bring the most bespoke designs to her clients. This dedication to the art of design has led to numerous design awards for her work and attention to detail.
