As Design House’s Principal, Janine Geller knows how to make her clients feel at home. With a keen eye for the eclectic, the exotic, the cozy, and the beautiful, Geller’s work captures intimacy and adventure, transforming them into unique and personal living spaces. Her design style flows seamlessly throughout the space expressing a feeling rather than just a design. Geller believes one’s home should be a reflection of their lifestyle and personality.
She was born in Lima Peru, raised in South Florida and graduated from Parsons school of design with a Bachelors in Interior Design. As a dancer, a visual artist, and daughter of a textile entrepreneur, she grew up appreciating the sounds and design of both art and beauty.
Janine Geller’s love of fashion, culture, and travel meshed with her passion for family form DH’s distinct offerings. The Design House team provides discerning clients with a service unlike any other in the interior design world. Their full-service designs capture their clients’ one of a kind stories. A DH design is so catered to the client’s life experience, loves, and desires that it is impossible to make any two the same.
“Alan David” Cohen is Design House’s inspiring, licensed Creative Director. His work and career are a testament to creative manifestation. Considered a designer’s designer by his peers, his ability to reproduce the images from his imagination and his innate, deep understanding of spatial planning have catapulted him to unrivalled success as an interior and furniture designer and equally important, a space sculptor.
Born just outside of Boston, Alan found his passion with the encouragement of several of his art teachers. They introduced him to and helped him develop his natural talents in everything from perspective drawing, shading and spatial arrangement to hand rendering and scale. Still “old school” in that way, Cohen draws each area to a level of detail that misses nothing and encompasses everything. After having trained with Swedish masters in Boston as a cabinet maker for four years, he launched his highly acclaimed career as a furniture designer & manufacturer. But, it is the honing of those skills that he developed over many years that has come to define Cohen’s most impressive talent – his ability to recognize and satisfy the creative needs of his clients. “Listening to what your client has to say is paramount” according to Cohen.
Now that Cohen has merged with his stepdaughter, Janine Geller, they, together, have created a remarkable full-service luxury interior design firm unlike any other. Currently, Design House Studio, LLC is designing several remarkable estate level homes in Stone Creek Ranch, Boca / Delray’s premier luxury estate community, as well as homes in St Andrews Country Club, Highland Beach Ocean Front, and Turnberry Ocean Front Residences .
