Bynn Esmond Headshot

Bynn Esmond

Founder and Principal Designer, NKBA, ASID

Being both creative and technical, Bynn is involved in every aspect of the project, from overall creative design visions and drawing plans, to managing contracts and 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. Through their work in beauty salons and restaurants, this demonstrated for Bynn what hard work and creativity can look like. During her college career, she was able to discover and develop an engineering mindset through repeatedly coming up with design concepts and then reverse engineering them to discover how they could be executed. Post college, she pursued an interest in high-technology related endeavors working for Silicon Valley firms managing the details of technical integrations. This further reinforced her desire to both create amazing designs as well as understand the technical details of how amazing art is created. She quickly learned that communication, deadlines and budget are key factors to a successful project.

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 as a designer and project manager for a high-end luxury interior design company serving high-profile clients.

This skillset paired with her technical roots has carried over to how Bynn 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. 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 rooms while giving back to the community through Rooms of Hope.
