Originally from the Philippines, Dinna’s family immigrated to the United States when she was four, and she grew up in Alexandria, Virginia. Dinna has had a calling to decorating and design since she was a young girl, though her professional experience began in the early Ought’s, where she managed a furniture store and learned how to create spatial plans and designs. In 2013, Dinna started her first company, Audrey Kate Design Solutions, which focused on staging, and has since become Dinna Eckstein Designs, LLC.
Dinna’s design style and approach are based on building a relationship with her clients, and understanding their wants, needs, and expectations. In turn, this provides a solid foundation for creating a great functional space, tailored to individual needs. Dinna guides her clients through every aspect of the design process, and is committed to making sure that their design, in its final form, is the best version of their vision. In 2018, Dinna was featured in the Washington Post’s column Splurge or Save.
Dinna currently resides in Georgia with her husband and young son. She has two adult children and two grandchildren who live in Virginia. When she’s not working, Dinna enjoys spending time with her family and her dogs, watching movies, traveling and visiting the happiest place of all, Disney World!
