Carmen Kuhlken


From a young age, Carmen has appreciated design; you could say the career found her! Coming from a family of landscape architects, artists and graphic designers she grew up understanding the importance of one’s surroundings, something that now carries over into her projects at Tracy Lynn Studio.

Carmen is a natural problem solver with a can do attitude and fresh innovative take on design, making her integral to the studio. While she enjoys many different styles, she strongly values functionality which can be seen in each of her clients’ homes.  Carmen earned her degree in Interior Design from SDSU and upon graduating she worked for high-end furniture retailers and assisted in the designs of model homes. She brings sophisticated and timeless designs to her clients and is especially inspired by the outdoors.

A third generation San Diegan, Carmen enjoys spending her spare time with a large group of family and friends. On the weekends you can find Carmen enjoying the beach, exploring the newest local craft breweries, and taking advantage of all that San Diego has to offer. She is also known for her crafty side, creating anything from succulent arrangements to handmade jewelry.
