Welcome to DOCENT - your guide to design intelligence, creative solutions and earthly beauty.
Led by me, Delta Wright an interior designer, design curator, public speaker, occasional songstress and life-long design enthusiast, DOCENT briefings will land in your inbox 2x’s a month with well-researched dispatches from the world of art and design.

A bit more about me -

My passion for both the technical and aesthetic aspects of design started early when I took over my father’s workshop to create a split-level modernist environment for my entourage of miniature animals. Function and beauty have always been equal creeds in my design education, from decoding the genius of iconic designers at the Pratt Institute to creating unique homes for clients from Santa Monica to Saudi Arabia.

My obsession with learning the “how and why” of design has lead to an enormous amount of design research.  I regularly attend exhibitions, travel and attend design events to stay at the forefront of the design world globally. My 25 years of creating interiors has also taught me that all knowledge is provisional - until you APPLY it.  

I am launching DOCENT as a way to share my passion for design research, my interest in solving design-related problems and my innate affinity for beauty. DOCENT celebrates design intelligence and is created for those who appreciate design history, have an interest in provenance and enjoy the stories behind the designers and craftspeople that created the objects we own and love.

DOCENT is my homage to knowledge – a nod to the creative thinkers, inventors who tinkered until they found solutions and a deep bow to the beauty makers. DOCENT is both my creative outlet and my response to the current moment of overwhelm and disillusionment. When we focus on solutions, elevate intelligence and reach for beauty, our work (and lives!) come into harmonious balance.

Keep your eye out for DOCENT briefings in your inbox. In my next post, I’ll share the design influences that shape my POV.  In the meantime, I want to hear from you. What in the world of design are you curious to learn more about?  Tell me your top design challenges…my interest is piqued...

Looking Forward--


A Note From Delta

Delta Wright

Here's what I want you to know -

Creating a home that soothes your soul, ignites your imagination, or hosts your family's milestones has never felt more vital. This generation is cocooning, entertaining and working from home more the ever. Contemporary lifestyles require a new approach to creating spaces to live, work and play.

I get it, because I live it.

I see interior design as an opportunity to express your truest personality and values - an act of self-love. Today, design choices are abundant, virtual dream homes are created with tech savvy, but the secret to creating a home that elevates your life is time honored - it requires love, time and expertise.

That's where I come in.

Combining my keen eye for beauty and harmony, with my 20 years design experience and my soulful artistic flair, I help clients create interiors that sing, not shout.

My affinity for organic modernism, nature and unexpected artistic elements always shows up in my work. I feel interiors designed with clarity and simplicity form the best canvas for bold personal expression through distinctive details.

With great pleasure, I simplify the interior design process for you when you are looking to bring soul home. By asking the right questions and listening to your story, I identify what is essential to you, edit out the rest and help you create your own slice of heaven.

I look forward to working together—
