Dacoda Design ~ a luxury lifestyle and interior design firm founded by Chayse Dacoda in 1998 ~ has designed projects that include California hillside homes & Spanish estates - to modern glass lofts in Tribeca and VIP Space for the Billboard music awards in Las Vegas. She has also licensed a line of rugs with Jaipur Rugs and enjoys spending time in India absorbing the vibrant design culture.
While she studied finance at the University of Pennsylvania - her design path began long before college with re-arranging the house's furniture at age 6 and hanging wallpaper and re-painting houses during summers while in high school as side jobs. After university - she took her finance and design mind and headed west and entered the real estate market in Southern California. This put her front and center to starting her own design business initially focusing on residential and commercial real estate around Southern California.
In addition to running her design firm, Chayse became well-known for sneaking around in strangers’ houses as the feisty and talented designer on the original Emmy-nominated TLC show While You Were Out where she transformed interior and exterior spaces in just two days for the unsuspecting homeowners; then hosting on HGTV’s Get It Together - where she seamlessly and humorously merged couples divergent styles and tastes. She has also guest hosted as a designer on NBC’s Open House.
Dacoda Design has now joined internationally acclaimed firm Pembrooke & Ives to continue on the journey of spreading beautiful design globally. www.pembrookeandives.com for more information.
