SASHA BERLIN

Co-Founder of Little Star, Interior Designer

Whether working on a stylish Hamptons beach house, a cozy Berkshires retreat or a polished uptown apartment, Sasha seeks to achieve a casual elegance in every project. Her approach is collaborative, seeking out ways to elevate an individual’s own personal taste to realize their vision of how they want to live. Her design philosophy features a refined use of color, strong silhouettes and mixing contemporary and vintage finds.

Educated at UC Berkeley and then Parsons the New School for Design, Sasha focused on residential interiors concentrating on architecture, furniture design, color, and lighting design. After several years of working for a number of well-known interior designers on high profile residential and commercial projects, Sasha founded her own firm in 2011. Sasha is an Allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers.

Sasha lives in New Canaan, CT with her husband David, her two sons Landon (5) and Dylan (2.5) and Dakota the dog.
