Crystal Sinclair Designs (CSD) is a small innovative husband/wife full service interior design firm based in New York. They specialize in creative residential and hospitality projects across the country. CSD's signature style varies project to project but is always warm, livable, and unique. Most describe their work as bold, eclectic, fun, and welcoming - they are not afraid of color. Crystal Sinclair Designs has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Domino, Interior Design, and House Beautiful, just to name a few.
Crystal Sinclair was born and raised in Texas where she started her design career more than 15 years ago. Crystal's laid-back Southern roots allow her to have an approachable and friendly yet professional relationship with all her clients.
Ben Sinclair was born and raised in Connecticut and joined CSD in 2021. Ben studied and worked as a mechanical engineer for almost a decade. He's wonderful with and executing the smaller details. Being an engineer, Ben brings another creative force to the firm.
Through the spaces they design, Crystal and Ben strive to reflect the dwellers' personality with the ultimate goal of making them, as well as their family and friends, feel welcome and at ease in the newly designed space. We want each and every one we work with to love walking into their home, their home bringing a joyful smile to their face time and time again. "A home should not only look pretty, we want there to be an emotional connection between the client and the finished space. As a former artist, I definitely take a creative and artistic approach to a space." Crystal says. "It's not about rules and numbers, it's about emotions and proportions."
Casual and relaxed in the way they collaborate with clients, they take their work very seriously and passionately. Crystal Sinclair Designs has developed a central belief with design: go the extra mile, have fun, push boundaries, get creative, and create something unexpected! They strongly believe in layering, creating depth and a story. Each space has its own boundaries and needs. "It's about honing in a listening to a space, learning what it wants," Crystal explains. Crystal and Ben believe it's their job as designers to find the harmony each client and space needs - and in doing so, create a home that the owners love and are proud to call home.
CSD is currently working on projects in Texas and New York. Crystal and Ben live in Tuxedo Park, NY with their five year old daughter, and their dog, Trinity.
