Kristen Sylvia is an Interior Designer at Herringbone & Brass.

Kristen, a Rhode Island native, attended college by the “Furniture Capital of the World” of High Point, North Carolina and completed her B.S. in Interior Architecture and Sustainable Design from Endicott College. Since 2011, she has been designing and managing a variety of high-end residential projects along the East Coast from Maine to Florida and has begun work on the West Coast in Los Angeles, California. Her zen-like nature and approach to life gently flows into her optimistic style, fresh and forward-looking design aesthetic, and intuitive relationship with her clients. In her spare time, Kristen is most often stimulating her love for adventure by exploring a new town, hiking with her rescue pup, chasing the sunset with her Canon, or catching up with a friend at a local coffee shop.


Sylvia Pagán Westphal is Founding Partner at Herringbone & Brass. Sylvia advises clients on select projects, especially when they involve renovations. Sylvia has renovated or built multiple luxury properties in the last 10 years. Through those experiences she acquired a deep understanding of the factors that define a successful real estate journey. Sylvia loves advising clients about their home’s needs (staging, organizing, styling, renovating) before putting it on the market, or, if a client is considering a purchase, she can help evaluate a property for its potential for renovation or revamping.
