A little about Daphne:
A Chester County native, Daphne has been a hands-on construction helper and re modeler since a child. Her father built their family home, and Daphne and her siblings were right there, hammer and nails in hand.
“I can remember when I was little I would always move things in my bedroom and around the house, loved to pick flowers and arrange them in glasses. I would make things out of just about anything you could think of. But really what shaped me into becoming a designer was growing up with a father that was always building or painting. He built our family home while I was growing up. He wasn’t shy with letting us help. Hammer, nails, paint brush….I learned to use them all and haven’t put them down since,” Daphne explains.
She listens to the customer and then puts her creativity to work to bring their vision to life.
Working in the business for over 17 years, Interior Designer Daphne Bradley started Design By Daphne, LLC, in 2008. Daphne takes pride in being able to provide clients with unique and creative designs, reflecting their needs and life style without breaking their budget.
"Sometimes it is as simple as rethinking how you use what you already have."
Hi! My name's Sabrina Claridge, Project Assistant for Design by Daphne, LLC.
Growing up, my parents always encouraged and inspired me to become the artist I truly am. At the age of nine years old I started writing short stories and poetry. I continued writing throughout my life, but that wasn't my only artistic outlet. I dabbled in media arts since the age of eleven where I produced, directed, and edited several handfuls of movies/videos/commercials/etc. In High School I gave performing arts a try, as I was an Actor and Costumes Mistress of the Bel Air Drama Company.
My passion is art because of the bond the artist builds with their community. Working for DBD has allowed me to learn and express my inner artist, while also establishing lasting connections with our clients. The most rewarding aspect of the job is leaving knowing that we've made a difference in our clients lives. Even if that is just refinishing an old piece of furniture, it's a service our clients will hopefully remember forever.
That being said, I'm personally always very proud of the work we do and am continually excited to see what design “Mysteries” we can solve next!
Hi! My name is Samantha Bradley, Summer apprentice for Design By Daphne, LLC.
Most of you who know me, know that I have been tagging along with my mom, Daphne, since I was an infant to all of her past to present jobs. Kauffaman's Furniture, craft shows and now DBD. I've learned so much along the way. Painting being my favorite. Art is a passion of mine, drawing, painting, digital art, costuming, I just love it all. I really cant remember a time when I did not have a paint brush or marker in my hand. As long as I am doing something artsy I'm happy. Sounds like mom doesn't?
Being DBD's summer apprentice is rewarding as it fills my summer vacation with creativity and opportunity to learn a trade. I also enjoy being able to spend more time with my mom.
One thing I've been working on specifically is control of the paint texture, brush strokes and consistency. I'm getting better every day! I see a career for myself in the art world, maybe even as a future official team member of Design by Daphne!
