Leigha Natzke – Owner/Designer
Leigha, a Durango native, has more than thirteen years experience in kitchen/bath design and cabinetry design. She holds a strong passion for design and is dedicated to providing her clients with aesthetically pleasing functional spaces. Leigha believes that because she is truly passionate about what she does, that transcends into all the spaces she helps to create. “I love design and I love bringing a part of who my client is into the spaces I am creating for them.”
Leigha has extensive knowledge of the most up to date kitchen and bath products on the market. This allows her to help direct clients in the right direction when making these important decisions for their project. There are so many options when it comes to products available and to have someone that truly understands these options can guarantee the client finds what is right for them and for their BUDGET! As a detailed project manager, Leigha is very hands on during the entire process – from the initial design work thru the full installation process. Being involved from start to finish helps her excel at creating timeless, beautiful and functional spaces.
When not in the showroom or on a job site, Leigha enjoys spending time with her family and being a kid all over again with her two year old son, Jaxon. She loves being in the outdoors and taking advantage of the amazing area we live in. Trail running, camping and of course cooking are among the top things she enjoys spending her free time doing.
Erin White Sinberg- Designer/Sales
Like many Durangoans, Erin moved to Durango in 1993 to attend Ft. Lewis College, fell in love with the town and made it her permanent home. Upon graduating in 1997, she became involved in the construction industry selling windows, doors & hardware for Pozzi Southwest, and added kitchen design to the mix in 2002 when hired by her competitor, Building Specialties Store. Erin moved into the high-end window, door and hardware market at Colorado Fenestra until the building slowdown in 2009. During that time she worked for her husband’s mortgage brokerage, Sinberg Capital Lending, adding familiarity of the lending process to her bag of tricks. When building started booming again, Erin’s connections with Durango’s long-time builders, jobsite acumen and love of all things interior design made her the ideal person to support Leigha at Aspen Design Studio.
An avid cook and space planner, Erin understands that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Her keen eye for design makes her a perfect companion in designing swoon worthy kitchens and spa-inspired bathrooms. From grand to tiny, country to contemporary, Erin ensures that the materials, colors, hardware and countertops fit in with her clients’ personal style and budget.
In her free time, you’ll find Erin hiking in the high country, water skiing at Lake Powell, singing with the Durango Women’s Choir, teaching and performing Latin dance and her favorite– spending time in her own kitchen testing new recipes on her family and friends.
Dunna Mazza May – Designer
A native of Milan, Italy, Duna moved to the United States in 2000, two years after getting her Master’s degree in Architecture with a minor in interior design.
Her first year stateside, Duna lived in San Diego and worked for a large architecture firm, and later moved to NYC where she lived for 16 years before moving to Durango in 2017. While in New York, Duna worked at the flagship showrooms of two major International kitchen design companies based in Italy. During this time she also spent 6 months in Milan to train at the company’s headquarters, visiting their factories and learning about the products in-depth. As a project manager for both companies, Duna worked with renowned architects and developers, as well as dozens of private clients to help design and build their kitchen from the initial concept through final installations, working within different budgets and highly customized solutions.
Duna also attended the annual International Design Fair held in Milan where all the new kitchen and interior design products are presented each year. Milan is the fashion capital of the world, and where new interior design and kitchen trends originate. With her worldly sense of style and knowledge of cutting edge products, Duna’s modern kitchen, bath and interior designs are unmatched in Durango.
In 2008, Duna took a sabbatical year and went back once again to Italy to get a second Master’s Degree in Architecture Restoration in Rome. Being passionate about interior design as well as historic preservation, she is an ideal team member at Aspen Design in the historic town of Durango, Colorado.
When not designing, Duna loves art, reading, hiking, swimming, biking and playing badminton with her kids.
