Kristin Challacombe Design is a suburban Chicago-based boutique interiors firm specializing in projects big and small. Whether it’s a new build, a renovation or a room that needs a makeover, we help clients with every phase of their project.

Our goal is always the same: to turn houses into homes that are livable and beautiful; homes that are comfortable for everyone who lives in them.

With a degree in hand from Harrington College of Design, Kristin began her career at a high-end residential firm in Chicago where she honed her skills and learned how to build and nurture collaborative relationships with clients.

She put her career on hold to focus on raising her children for a few years, and it was during this time that she noticed a growing trend among her friends and neighbors. They were moving from modest city apartments to larger homes with more space for their growing families. But with that extra square footage, came the uncertainty of how to make their homes reflect their styles while also being family-friendly.

And so, Kristin Challacombe Design was born.


Kristin provides guidance and inspiration for both new and existing homes. Her ability to meet each client’s unique needs is paired perfectly with an attention to detail that results in spaces that are beautiful and functional. Spaces for clients to live life and create memories.
