“I come out of the gate each time with an entirely new vision for every project. The design solutions come very quickly – I know what I want to create”
Elena’s initial design approach is instinctual. Her gift for understanding what the client really wants gives shape and feeling to a specific artistic vision for their interiors. Art is intrinsic to her design process, and when meeting with new clients she immediately sees color palettes as well as art references. Elena expertly integrates a variety of mediums, elements, and layers throughout her designs to more powerfully communicate who the client is. Her methodology is rigorous and strategic, allowing her to manifest each vision within specified timeframes and budgets.
Elena’s sensitivity and nuanced listening skills, combined with her deep relationships with vendors and art dealers, allow her to gently push the envelope to create something personally tailored yet unexpected. She challenges the boundaries between masculine and feminine, art and design, resulting in unrepeatable compositions.
With a degree from the School of Architecture and Environmental Design at Arizona State University, Elena founded Frampton Co after running a successful bi-coastal studio with a partner for 10 years. She is an Allied member of The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and has taught at Parsons The New School for Design. A Southern California native, she resides in both Brooklyn Heights and Bridgehampton, New York.
