MEET DARCY K
Originally from Burlington, Vermont. Darcy Kempton was born with an artistic hand, an eye for detail and an entrepreneurial spirit. Thanks goes to an encouraging high school art teacher and supportive parents who allowed her to pursue a career in the arts. After embarking on the journey to acquiring a degree in interior design from Virginia Tech, Darcy set sail to Las Vegas in hopes of expediting her career in the country’s fastest growing city. Starting her first business, Darcy K Designs right out of college and in a brand new city, the fear of failure quickly sent her searching for a paid position. It was during this time that Darcy acquired her knowledge of real-world design skills, marketing, sales, business management, project management, purchasing and obtained a wealth of commercial, model home and residential design experience.
During this time in Vegas, Darcy also learned the hard way that it would always be best to work for herself. Committed to making her next business a success, Darcy fearlessly moved to her favorite city, San Diego. Starting her business in the record low economic times of 2009 and in a brand new city with no connections, the odds were definitely against her. That didn’t stop the burning desire Darcy had to make her dreams come true.
The business model was simple, widen her reach by making it affordable to the everyday homeowner. Working for demanding clients in Vegas had taken a toll on her and getting back to the heart of what she loves was at the forefront of her mind. The mission became clear, helping as many people as possible love the home they’re in. Whatever that meant to them, it was her job to figure that out and provide them with a roadmap to get there.
Darcy will never forget her earliest successes and the doors that seemed to open out of nowhere. Every little success was celebrated with overwhelming gratitude and she couldn’t deny the signs that were showing her, she was on the right track. Never deviating from the mission, Darcy has continued to build upon the experiences that have made Simply Stunning Spaces what it is today, always remaining mindful that the client has a choice and it’s their smiles that are the biggest reward of all.
