Welcome to the blog, design portfolio, and author website of Carolyn Matthews-Daut

Carolyn Matthews-Daut is an accomplished interior designer who discovered her passion for watercolor painting while studying at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. Since then, she has taken her sketchbook and watercolor set with her everywhere she goes.

Carolyn’s design philosophy is anchored by the tenet that design integrity starts with research; research into culture, community, inherent inequity, and localized sustainable practices. She hopes to be a part of innovative change to our design practices and application by continuing to be inquisitive of her environment, sensitive to the problems inherent in the world, and steadfast in her commitment to making lasting change in her community.

Carolyn’s love of travel and adventure has taken her around the world, from the rolling farmlands of Wisconsin to the rugged mountains of New Zealand, the picturesque islands of Bar Harbor, the bustling streets of London, and the majestic canyons of Utah. Today, she resides in Lebanon, New Hampshire with her husband and a beloved rescue puppy.
