Featured Reviews for Interior Designers and Decorators in Oakland, CA
Joy Street Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in Oakland, CA
"We hired Kelly at Joy Street Design for our whole house remodel. Kelly acted as our project manager for the entire remodel, and worked closely with our general contractor, subcontractors and us in connection with every single design detail on the project. We were first time remodelers but watch a ton of HGTV (and of course, are constantly on HOUZZ) and are very particular. She made everything easy and we never had to worry about a thing, which was great as we did not live close by. She did not try to impose her style on us - she figured out what style we liked and made recommendations based on that. Her work on the kitchen and on the kids' rooms was especially fantastic. We were making a big move from the Bay Area to LA and wanted to make sure that the kids' rooms were awesome and something they could really get excited about. The kids LOVE their rooms and so do we."

Visual Jill Interior Decorating
Interior Designers and Decorators in Oakland, CA
"I have worked with Jill on 2 houses that I designed, and had a great experience in both cases. The first one was for a homeowner, and Jill was fantastic at coming up with livable solutions that fit the occupant perfectly. The second was staging for a spec house, and the interior was a lot of fun while maintaining a mass appeal. Again, excellent work, I highly recommend Visual Jill!"

LMB Interiors
Interior Designers and Decorators in Oakland, CA
"Laura was our fantastic project manager in a renovation project on our town home that involved a kitchen and master bath renovation as well as the creation of a beautiful and functional LR fireplace, hearth and shelving/cabinet surround. She directed our contractor through the details of realizing her beautiful designs and colour palette. She searched and suggested all finishing details including furniture, lighting, window treatments and kitchen and bath fixtures and appliances. The result was a stunning redo of an ordinary town home into a lovely and soothing living space that was both functional and stylish. All that and she was extremely fun and personable to work with!"

Kelley Flynn Interior Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in Oakland, CA
"I would rate higher if I could. Kelley's design is so beautiful. I hired her for three projects. Three years later I look at my living room and say I can't believe how beautiful this space is. She also designed an office for me where I have clients thanking me for having such a peaceful beautiful space to come to. Kelley's design is on a different level than most designers in the field. She truly gets how the space will make you feel and how to balance it. She also truly gets how to make the space reflect who you are. I am thrilled"

"I used Niche Interiors to help me decorate and stylize my condo and it turned out amazing!

She was also easy to work with and provided plenty of suggestions that allowed me to have a wide selection of choices. I would highly recommend her to any friends."

Mulberry's Home
Interior Designers and Decorators in Oakland, CA
"I loved working with Chad at Mulberry’s Home to give my living and dining room a much needed ‘facelift’ after my kids had grown and these rooms were looking dated and tired. He helped me create updated spaces which feel modern, usable and still traditional to match the style of my home. He skillfully introduced new colors, fabrics, furnishings and artwork while honoring the meaningful pieces that have been part of my family for generations. I am in love with these rooms once again and it is a pleasure to be at home! The process was seamless and enjoyable with the talented Mulberry’s design team and their exceptional service."
- Jane Inch
Coombs Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in Oakland, CA
"Sarah is more than a designer, she’s a godsend for anyone who wants to live in a beautiful, tasteful, functional space. Not a square foot is wasted, not a dollar misspent. She took our bland box of a living room and transformed it into a warm, inviting and incredibly stylish place, all while staying within our small budget. Simply put, she’s a creative genius and an utter delight to work with."

His projects demonstrate thoughtful planning, are well executed and leave his clients delighted. I have born witness to many of his projects and would recommend his firm without hesitation!"

What does an interior designer do?


A good home design professional will hone your style down to its very essence and be able to choose a functional layout that feels natural to you. Interior design companies can be involved as much or as little as the client desires. Many clients who hire an interior decorator in Oakland, CA — particularly those who are remodeling — have a good sense of how the room should look and what products they should use. Often clients will insist that interior decorators use the products already present in the house. Other times a designer will need to start from scratch — especially if this is a newly purchased or just-built home. An interior design company will need to figure out exactly what the client needs, which includes organizing rooms, picking flooring and wall colors, and finding furniture to complement it all. Sometimes that means he or she will have to recruit help from other Oakland, CA home professionals to help create the perfect look for your renovation. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of interior designers & decorators: Architects & Building Designers, General Contractors, Home Builders, Design-Build Firms, Photographers.

Do your research before meeting with an interior designer or home decorator in Oakland, CA. Ask yourself what you want your space to become and what it will be used for. Figure out the extent of what you need help with, what your must-haves are and what your budget is. Interior design services can add up fast, so be up front with a potential design firm or individual from the beginning. Also, pick an interior decorator that fits your style. Browse through the portfolios of different Oakland interior design firms and decide if you would live in those houses. Just because you like something doesn’t mean you could live in it. There's a big difference! You can find more interior designers & decorators in San Francisco, Hayward, Concord, Richmond and Berkeley.

Questions to ask when you meet with local Oakland interior designers:


  • Can you give me a referral? (It makes a big difference to talk with a client who's worked with the designer before.)
  • Can I see your design portfolio?
  • When will the home renovation be done?
  • Do you charge an hourly rate or a flat rate, or use the cost-plus method or a mixed method?
