About Dana Foster

 

Dana’s passion for architecture and design started young. As the daughter of a contractor, Dana spent most of her childhood and young adult life walking through construction sites, where she was exposed to the building of luxury homes, resorts, golf courses, and churches. A high school elective course in interior design and art sparked her passion and set down her educational and career path.

Dana holds a 5-year Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design from Arizona State University College of Architecture and Environmental Design. Upon graduation, she relocated to the Seattle area to pursue her design career and live a life surrounded by the art, culture, and nature that epitomizes the PNW. She set out to design interiors grounded in the principals of design and architecture she learned through her studies in the Southwest, while expanding upon her paternal lessons in construction.

Dana spent a decade working at local construction companies, both large and small. She honed her skills as an interior designer while gaining practical knowledge of business and construction processes. With a rich and diverse background in both interior design and construction, Dana Foster founded DTF Design in 2004 which she renamed Dana Foster Interiors in 2020. Her unique background and ability to navigate the landscape of both interior design and construction enables Dana to work closely with contractors, architects, and clients to deliver smooth projects with less stress for the client.

Recognized and respected for diverse and creative interiors, Dana Foster has created timeless interiors with their clientele at the heART of design for nearly three decades. Her expertise in luxury residential design includes many award-winning projects ranging in style from traditional to contemporary and everything in between. 

VALUES

On both a personal and professional level, we are committed to upholding our core values with integrity: we bring these core values to the table with every client.

01. Collaboration

We believe in a collaborative process that begins with the client and includes the skillful orchestration of various disciplines—from architecture to lighting designers. For nearly three decades, we’ve enjoyed cultivating enduring relationships with our clientele and our extensive team of talented artisans to create cohesive designs uniquely tailored to our clients.

02. EMPATHY

Empathy is at the heART of design. We genuinely care about our clients’ lives, desires, and ideas for their home. This empathy allows us to understand our clients at their core and helps us interpret their wishes and dreams and translate those needs into artful spaces that evoke meaning and purpose.

03. CREATIVITY

The design process is endlessly creative. It is also a process that involves flexibility and collaboration to come up with creative solutions that add value to each home. From materials to finishing touches, we are driven to create truly unique spaces where the design is tailored to the architecture, the site, and each client’s needs.

04. TRUST

Interior design involves time and commitment, especially when starting from the ground up. With design and construction processes in mind, we hone in on what matters most right away. To do this, we build trust with our clients that allows us to develop long lasting relationships, multiple collaborations, and often generational projects.

05. EXCELLENCE

We consistently challenge ourselves to raise the bar with our personalized service, continued education, and advanced practices. Our decades of experience in the industry and careful study of current trends, materials, and practices inform all our decisions. The end result?  Unique designs that suit our clients’ tastes, visions, and needs perfectly.
