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

Sabrina Alfin Interiors
Interior Designers and Decorators in Richmond, CA
"We contacted Sabrina to help us update both our son’s bedroom to create more function and style, as well as the Master Bedroom to find ways to make it a more restful oasis. She really keyed in to our love of clean, mid-century modern design that is in keeping with the style of our home, while making sure we could still relax in comfort. She listened well to our needs and preferences and designed with that in mind while still adding her own creative touches to the updates. Her vision and her color sense helped us navigate the process smoothly. Sabrina is very organized and great at managing the disparate pieces of a big project. We really liked working with her and have already referred her to friends. We’re hoping we can do another project with her again soon as we love our renovated bedrooms!"

CM Natural Designs
Interior Designers and Decorators in Richmond, CA
"In preparation for retirement, we moved to San Diego from Salt Lake City. Leaving a two story, six bedroom suburban home and coming into a three bedroom beach house, we quickly discovered we had too much of the wrong kind of furniture. Wanting to start from scratch, we sold all of it, leaving only the vitally necessary pieces we needed to live. We bought a beach house built in the mid 50’s, which we wanted to update but leave in its original mid-century modern style. We knew what we liked, but had trouble envisioning it in our home. We sought out designers and were referred to Corine. She met with us and we quickly became comfortable with her style ideas and background, but it was her upbeat enthusiasm and energy that sold us on hiring her. Corine specializes in Coastal themes, and was able to give us plans that were unique and innovative yet kept us with a comfortable beach house which, we feel, matches the community in which we live. As we work our way through the house, we continue to be pleased with her designs. We highly recommend you take the time to meet Corine and look at her work, I think you’ll find after you meet her that she can help you as well. Pat and Valerie Lewis"

"I hired Nest Design Co. to decorate my family room, dining room, and living room. They also designed the full remodel of a guest bathroom. Nest Design was wonderful to work with. They did a great job of translating my design vision into spaces that are both beautiful and comfortable. They worked within my budget, were excellent at communicating, and delivered when promised. My expectations were continually exceeded. I credit Nest Design with making my home a place I love to be."

IDF Studio
Interior Designers and Decorators in Richmond, CA
"I have worked with IDF Studio for 7+ years on various projects. Whether it be for Airbnb HQ or Zendesk, Jaclyn and her team are ultimately collaborative, and have delivered thoughtful design. Working on interiors projects can be a crazy environment, as any Workplace person knows. The folks at IDF Studio are professional, yet fun - a great mix for any project - which kept me laughing or serious, depending on what was going on. Design is one thing, but being able to curate a space is really one of things that put their approach over the top. It's the little things that define a space, and it takes a certain eye to do it well. IDF is among the best."

Lauren Nelson Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in Richmond, CA
"Lauren Nelson Design is a best in class interior design firm and we’ve been thrilled and impressed over the 2 years we’ve worked with Lauren and her team. We worked with Lauren on our new home including a small kitchen remodel, and the design of our living room, dining room, bedrooms and nursery. A few specifics that stand out: •Excellent project management – Lauren is the ultimate professional. She is prompt, responsive, and consistently on schedule and budget. She efficiently used my time upfront around key decisions, and then managed the entire process from initial design through to completion. •Impeccable, yet flexible style – Lauren presents an array of design ideas and has been flexible about looking into different alternatives when our taste differed, or we wanted to look into a cheaper alternative. •Strong relationships -- we’ve benefitted greatly from Lauren's strong relationships with other industry professionals (contractors, painters and other craftspeople in San Francisco) – including several beautiful custom pieces that Lauren designed and had made."

Lucile Glessner Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in Richmond, CA
"A Note About Lucile: I found Lucile Glessner through a referral in May 2011, just after buying our new house in Portola Valley. The structure is a loft-like, open-plan, rustic design with very high ceilings and lots of light. To say the least, it is very different from the traditional center-hall styles I had inhabited to date. I needed a lot of help. I chose Lucile over others I met with because I really liked her energy, personality and complete lack of snobbery. This said, I also selected her because I knew she would challenge me the most. She did not just tell me what I wanted to hear in that first meeting (or ever afterward.). She was honest about what things would transfer well and which things would have to retire. Most importantly, she took me seriously when I asked her to educate my eye. I do not move and design a home very often, so I really wanted this to be an educational and developmental experience for me. She really delivered. She did not give me her taste; she educated and developed mine. Lucile made me take risks. I got better and better at this and am so much happier with the result than if I had worked with someone who let me play it safe. The scope of our project involved a kitchen re-design, fireplace rehab, new lighting, new doors/fixtures, build-out and design of 7 closets, sound system integration, and complete interior design/art consultation using both old and new pieces. The result exceeds every expectation I could have had. Here is why: --Creative Vision. My home looks nothing like anything that I saw in Lucile’s portfolio of past work. This tells me that she is constantly pushing herself to discover new approaches to design and be inspired by the space at hand. This said, she also leverages her experience. She knew what materials would work well; she knew how to analyze the space flow and lighting patterns; she is technically adept with CAD software, which let us experiment (cost-free) with various ideas; she favors things that are both “simple and unique.” And, that is how my house turned out: utterly simple and totally unique. --Unbelievable Resources and Project Partners. (Yes, I can actually say I LOVED the contractor Lucile brought into this project, which must be pretty rare given the stories one hears.) All of the people Lucile brought in to help with the project were superb, talented and fun to work with. The fabricator built a gorgeous stone hearth to Lucile’s specs. A local metal-working artist created a coffee table from old wood and copper cladding. Two assistants helped with everything, including a wall-sculpture for the hall from old batik presses (designed by Lucile.) All of the artists she exposed me to and the out-of- the-way resources she showed me are integral to her professional practice and truly wonderful. (I still cackle with glee over the closet design specialist Lucile brought in….she created wonderful, elegant storage spaces using her own skills and an economical materials source that will be my secret forever, mainly because no one who sees them would believe it.) --Efficiency. Lucile was efficient in two ways. First was with time. I hired her in Mid-May and was moved in, with all major construction and design done, by June 30. The second was with money. Lucile’s professional model is well-thought through and delivers real value. It is a cliché to say that I saved a lot by working with her, but it is true. Beyond cost savings, Lucile also knew where to splurge for impact and where to cut corners and be extra-creative. We did at least twice as much as planned and still stayed on budget. This was a true collaboration with a gifted partner and one of the best personal experiences I have had. Congratulations and many thanks to Lucile! Martha Josephson and Jon Carter 5 Sandstone Street Portola Valley, CA November 2011"

Visual Jill Interior Decorating
Interior Designers and Decorators in Richmond, 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!"

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 Richmond, 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 Richmond, 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 decorators: .

Do your research before meeting with an interior designer or home decorator in Richmond, 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 Richmond 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 decorators in San Francisco, Oakland, Vallejo, Berkeley and San Leandro.

Questions to ask when you meet with local Richmond 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?
