Brittany Haines, Principal
After honing her skills with some of San Francisco's top interior design firms, Brittany launched ABD in 2013.
A second-generation interior designer, Brittany grew up in and around the timeless spaces created by her father. When a fire in 2001 destroyed the family home, she experienced firsthand how the concept of home and our personal collections enrich our lives. She observed as her parents renovated their next home and knew that one day she would pursue interior design.
With a passion for helping others find their own authentic style, Brittany works with clients to create casually elegant, yet livable spaces, dotted with personal treasures. Brittany is grateful that her passion and profession are deeply intertwined, and enjoys enhancing life's moments through design.
Chelsi Liddell, Design Director
Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Chelsi studied at Ryerson University's School of Interior Design. Upon finishing her schooling, she moved to London where she worked for four years as a color consultant for Farrow & Ball. In 2011, love brought Chelsi to San Francisco, where she has had the opportunity to work for some of San Francisco's top interior design firms.
Chelsi believes that the most important aspect of design is to constantly edit and never over-design. She feels fortunate to be able to create spaces for people that serve as a framework for cherished memories.
