The Los Angeles creative obtained an architecture degree and now splits her time designing disparate projects ranging from kitchen spaces and bar stools to integrating her passion for DJing. Recently she designed a custom DJ table with a built-in mixer to ensure a feel-good sensation.

Beth Diana Smith purchased her home immediately after finishing up her bachelor’s degree, spending the next two years renovating and redesigning the space. But it took more than a decade in accounting and finance for her to know it was time to return to creative roots and embrace it professionally. Her Instagram proudly boasts the fruits of her decision and the recognition she’s received thus far for her eclectic, maximalist design style.
