Aaron Bradford Duke was born in the cultural wasteland of Garland, Texas just a stones throw away from Dallas. His playgrounds of discovery were the worlds of art, dance, design, fashion, travel, theatre, and his imagination finding inspiration in magazines of a well-lived life more exciting than his hometown.
Drawing upon his unique marriage of his vivid imagination and well-traveled European perspective, Aaron has become the go-to source for home and business owners drawn to his distinctive brand of eccentric cool.
A commanding presence with a strong personal style – always in his signature cowboy boots – he blends high-end furnishings with keenly curated vintage finds brings spaces to life in a manner and feeling of formality and interjecting a touch of humor. His interiors flow seamlessly from the exterior to the inside creating harmony with their surroundings. He is a firm believer that good design speaks for itself, while great design is authentic. Aaron balances exclusivity with accessibility in his highly globalized statement rooms incorporating his love of history, architecture, fine art, fashion, exquisite food, and a romantic ideal of life.
Aaron received his degree in Interior Design from El Centro College in historic downtown Dallas. He has over 14 years experience designing and managing new construction, remodeling, and decorating projects for high-end residential clientele, boutique hotels, restaurants, spas, retail, multi family, and small commercial projects domestically and internationally.
Before becoming the visionary and tastemaker behind AARON B DUKE, he worked for industry leaders: Interior Design Top 25 Hospitality Giants, ForretPerkins; Ike Isenhour; Fairfield Residential; and Architectural Digest Top 100, Rose Tarlow Design with a clientele of A – list celebrities and high-profile clients.
Aaron is an award-winning and published designer. Build Magazine named him the Most Innovative Interior Designer in 2016, and he was named one of the California Faces of Design by Modern Luxury Interiors California in 2017. He has been published in Elle Decor, Derring Hall, Dwell, and many others.
His rising profile puts him front and center, which is about as far away from Garland, Texas, as anyone could have imagined!
