My name is Dayka Robinson, and I'm an Interior Designer.

As I young girl I loved working with my hands, building and taking things apart while eagerly awaiting each school book fair so I could buy the DIY books that I loved--these are my humble design roots. As I grew up, I was certain that I wanted to spend my life doing work I'd be passionate about and refused to settle for anything less. It only made sense that I focus on my passion of Interior Design, and I haven't looked back since.

Opening my design studio, Dayka Robinson Designs, was a natural progression after launching my blog in 2009. My love for second-hand shopping, antiquing & estate sale-ing-- introduced by my grandmother so many years ago--has become an integral part of my design business today. From designing interior spaces for clients to selling reinvented show-stopping vintage pieces, I live and design by the 3 R's (Rescue, Reuse, Reinvent) and love to show my clients how to mix re-imagined vintage pieces with newer furniture, textiles, and accessories to create a space that truly reflects their personality & lifestyle.

As a designer my first goal is to help you define your style, then use your style as a jumping board to create a space you'll love to live in. I'll push you to explore options you might normally shy away from but don't worry--my intent is to ensure you'll love your finished room as much as I'll love working on it...and I'll be there to hold your hand every step of the way.
