Senior Associate | Residential Interiors Studio Lead
Hyrel joins us at Board & Vellum after nearly a decade of experience designing high-end residential interiors in New York City and Seattle. Born in Dubai, she watched the city’s dramatic transformation as she grew up. The proliferation of architecture and design growing around her inspired sketchbook after sketchbook of drawings — at a young age, she already knew her career would be in the realm of art and design.
After beginning her design education at the American University of Sharjah, she completed her degree at Iowa State University after moving to the US. Now in Seattle, she and her husband finally have the dog they always wanted, Mowgli, who joins them on their adventures camping and traveling, including being a happy member of a weekly neighborhood dog swim group. She also expresses her creativity through flower arranging and experimenting with new recipes.
