With a depth of knowledge garnered through decades of experience and the ability to create a uniquely intimate design experience, Donna enriches a project—seamlessly connecting clients, builders, architects, and contractors. Establishing a relationship of trust with her clients allows her to deliver a curated design process that encompasses the wholeness of a project—connecting the dots between the essence of the client and their surroundings.
Nantucket interior designer Donna Elle discovered a deep-rooted love for this island—a place she instinctively knew was home—at the age of 17. Since then, Nantucket and Cape Cod has been her muse—a touchstone integral to a career that has included a dressmaking, bridal and upholstery workroom, studies at the acclaimed Rhode Island School of Design, and a thriving interior design business.
For Donna, a project comes to life when her creative autonomy merges with her professional partnerships. Through a deep involvement in the project development phase and an eagle eye for the most specific design details, Donna has a way of inspiring collaboration and illuminating a cohesive vision for the full scope of a project, from start to finish.
“I am deeply passionate about the creative journey,” Donna says. ‘’it’s about staying persistent throughout the design process, allowing the client experience to evolve with the home’s transformation. That tenacity creates a more genuine relationship between the designer, client and their home. At the end of the day, it’s about recognizing that harmony and trust are built through this ingenuity.”
