Kristin loves to best herself with the next “best time of her life”. She takes inspiration from 2 years at the School of the Museum of Fine Art - Boston, 5 weeks of working and living in Paris, a month-long trip to Italy and France, re-schooling at Harrington College of Design and creating her own artworks.
Her current “best time of her life” is her work with Kristin Taghon Interior Designs. Kristin took a week in 2014 to work in Oklahoma with Habitat for Humanity where she learned how to patch drywall and side a house! She enjoyed advocating for the client to pick out interior paint colors. All her life, she has enjoyed creating things, which she now realizes was her Dad’s passion too. Her childhood and her past work as a Software Engineer and Manager have given her a love of technology and the need to understand how things are built. After she took the plunge to go back to school for Interior Design, she worked for a couple well-known design firms to learn about the business of interior design before starting Cadmium Interiors - now Kristin Taghon Interior Designs.
Kristin still loves creating art and finding inspiration in travels. Kristin has a passion for the Passive House Building Standard which strives to build houses that create as much energy as it uses. This standard creates an airtight home that requires healthy, low chemical materials. Kristin enjoys creating healthy as well as beautiful spaces for her clients.
