Kristina Braun

Kristina's understanding of the importance of one's surroundings, especially at home, has always driven her passion for design.  Her goal is to translate every client's vision into a home that is beautiful and timeless.

Kristina earned her degree in Interior Design at Parsons the New School for Design and gained significant experience at established high end residential design firms in Manhattan and San Francisco.  In 2009 she founded her own firm, Braun Interiors, and led projects in New York, San Francisco and Dubai prior to more recently co-founding Braun + Adams. She lives in San Francisco and loves to spend time scouring flea markets, rock climbing and enjoying the beach in her hometown of Santa Barbara.

Emily Adams

Drawing her creative inspiration from travels, the outdoors and life at home with two small children, Emily understands the need for a home to be as functional as it is beautiful. She has been passionate about decorating, designing and creating beautiful spaces since childhood, but first pursued a career in business. She held roles in project management and executive recruiting prior to formalizing her design career. Her experience in the business world helps her greatly in managing a business, client budgets and project deadlines. 

Emily received a BS in Cognitive Science from the University of California, San Diego and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. She resides in Ross, California with her husband and daughters.
