Passion for Design

DuVäl Reynolds helps clients envision spaces that reflect their style and needs

While working for more than 10 years at California Closets—where he orchestrated organized spaces for a range of residential and commercial clients—DuVäl Reynolds discovered he had a knack for design. Encouraged by designer clients, he enrolled in Westwood College’s interior design program, attending night classes while working full-time. “I honed my skills in detail and precision at California Closets,” he reflects. “And when I got my degree, I found I had a greater passion for design than I’d expected.”

In 2017, Reynolds launched his own firm and hit the ground running. He recently completed a “West Coast vintage” project for a family in Vienna. “My objective is to give clients what they don’t know to ask for and what they’re too afraid to try,” he explains. “In the end, I want them to feel like their house reflects who they want to be, with no judgment.”

Reynolds married Sara Baglin last year and they recently bought a four-bedroom townhouse in Fairfax. First up: a kitchen makeover. Describing the home’s current state as “a hot mess,” the designer is now in planning mode. “Your own house,” he laments, “is the hardest thing to do!”
