Bynn Esmond Headshot

Bynn Esmond

Founder and Principal Designer, NKBA, ASID

A seasoned designer with over two decades of combined experience in design, construction, and project management, Bynn is involved in every aspect of the project, from overall creative visions to overseeing the execution of those concepts. Bynn’s passion for artistic expression is innate to her persona. It is a byproduct of her parents’ connection to the arts. Their work in beauty and culinary arts demonstrated to Bynn what creativity can look like. They lived a minimalist lifestyle focusing on what they loved — family, friends, and food. This translated to Bynn that food is the language of love, and home is a safe haven where love is abundant. The environment she grew up in influenced her ability to see design as an instrument to invite connection, community, and intimate gatherings.

While studying design in college, she discovered and developed an engineering mindset by repeatedly coming up with concepts and reverse engineering them to discover how they could be executed. Post college, she pursued high-technology-related endeavors working for Silicon Valley firms managing the details of technical integration projects. This further reinforced her desire to both create amazing designs as well as understand the technical details of how amazing art is created. Effective communication was the key to the success of these projects. After a brief hiatus from corporate America to raise her two children, Bynn returned back to work pursuing her true passion — interior design. She spent five years working at a high-end luxury interior design firm serving high-profile clients.

Bynn’s creative skillset paired with her technical roots has carried over to how she approaches the design of beautiful homes and spaces, and further communicate those ideas with various members of her team, including builders, cabinet and furniture makers, and installers. In 2016, Bynn Esmond Designs LLC was proudly launched as one of the few design • build • furnish firms in the Bay Area to bring unity to the creative and technical design process.

When Bynn is not creating beautiful homes, you’ll find her in her kitchen whipping up gourmet meals from scratch, or creating beautiful children’s rooms while giving back to the community through Rooms of Hope.
