Donna Tran


Interior Designer




If you have ever been involved with Borrelli chances are you’ve had the pleasure of meeting Donna Tran. Donna has been a staple on the Borrelli team since she was a fresh faced graduate over seven years ago! Within that time she has risen to become a star senior designer with a humble and extremely dedicated work ethic.
Donna has led many prestigious award-winning projects for the Borrelli team including those that won the 2015 and 2016 awards for San Diego Home/Garden’s “Kitchen of the Year”.
Beginning with a BA in general biology, Donna ultimately found her passion in interior design, completing her AKBD certification through San Diego Mesa College where she continues to routinely serve as a guest juror for student work.
She was involved and on the board of the NKBA from 2010-14, and in 2010 in its inaugural year, was honored as one of the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s “30 under 30”.
Donna is key member of the Borrelli family and an exceptional designer. She credits the family atmosphere of the studio with helping foster her creative growth. She loves that the studio has its own work shop and that she is able to see her concepts being built and materialized on site.
How she finds any spare time in her day we don’t know! But when she does, she dedicates it to her side business PaperAve, which creates stunning hand-made paper flower arrangements and decorations.
If you haven’t met Donna and are interested in seeing what Borrelli can do for your home whether big or small, call the studio today, Donna and our team of all-star designers love working with new and old clients alike!
