Veronica Valencia is an Interior Designer & Creative Director who got her start working behind the camera, as the head of design production for some 400+ home makeover shows (in 33 states!) for networks spanning from ABC, NBC, FOX and OWN. She is Hispanic and Native American by heritage and bohemian and well-traveled by design, with a love for clean lines, vintage elements and femininity - a style she deftly sums up as New Modernism.
2017 marks the 4th year of The Design Hunters, a modern day Interior Design, Styling and Creative services company she founded with her now husband Kristopher Hughes in 2013, as well as the launch of several new product lines for Veronica. “Designing product has been a life-long dream of mine. When my samples arrived, Kris asked me if I was going to be okay. I think I looked like I might pass out. It was just so amazing to be holding something you poured your heart and soul into.” Joining her already launched line of lighting at Barn Light Electric, is the Veronica Valencia Window Treatment Collection sold exclusively at Select Blinds, and her own line of wall décor sold at retail nationwide, beginning first with the At Home stores this October.
Veronica, currently splits her time between New York and Los Angeles, traveling constantly for show production and private clients. “We’ve mastered the art of living out of a suitcase and how to make the perfect hotel room matcha latte.” As a result of all that road-time these two can shop and source a 50-mile radius from their hotel room like no one else can. “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t kinda love our vagabond life. We get to see the world together by design and that’s all I could ever ask for.”
Remodelista called her the “Master of Design Transformations" and Australian magazine, Renegade Collective deemed her “Miss. Makeover”. Her work has been featured in Domaine Home, The New York Times, Architectural Digest, Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, Lucky Magazine and more.
