Artistic Designs for Living, Tineke Triggs
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Francisco, CA
"Tineke Triggs is innovative, open-minded, creative, and a delight to work with. Tineke is flexible, tireless and full of wonderful ideas. She's always open to a challenge and able to tackle any problems that arise mid-remodel. The things that drive all of us crazy, Tineke just takes in stride. I highly recommend Tineke. She did a complete remodel of our kitchen, moved walls, opened walls, but in really smart ways, that used the space brilliantly -- she thinks like an architect and does her work at a systemic level, never just window-dressing, but really beautiful outcomes that work for your family. "

Bayon Design Studio Inc.
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Francisco, CA
"I worked with Cindy on a very large project to decorate and redesign my 6,500 sq ft home. Cindy is extremely professional, listens and has an amazing eye along with plenty of experience that comes through. She's straight forward and easy to get along with and work with. As far as how my home turned out, I could not be happier, it's magazine worthy! I would definitely use her for any project big or small again without hesitation."

IDF Studio
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Francisco, 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."

Ian Stallings
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Francisco, CA
"There is something about Ian. When you meet him, you aren't sure if you may have actually known him your entire life or not as he connects with, reads and relates to you. He is forever calming, and entirely engaged (you can see it in his eyes). His genuine smile brightens and alleviates the anticipation of any stress. I feel like I'm writing a review for a dating profile, but then again, isn't what he does for his clients so intimate and humanly connecting, that it should feel that way? It is after all, his clients' home, not his. He brings their thoughts out of them, collects them and packages them up in a way they somehow, probably always knew (subconsciously), but could never identify, let alone construct on their own. Truly a pleasure to know, and work with, Ian."
- James Kastner, Slate Properties
Kimball Starr Interior Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Francisco, CA
"It was a great pleasure to work with Kimball. She carefully listened to what I wanted my place to look and feel like and listened to my ideas of how to bring that about. She had lots more great ideas, but wasn't pushy and did a great job of bringing together both style and my quirks! I have a few unique items from my past that I didn't think matched with much else, but Kimball integrated them beautifully with my new pieces. She knew lots of places for furniture and other items that I had never even heard of. She also knew lots of contractors ( who proved quite skillful), and kept me abreast of what was going on both schedule-wise and budgetwise. I would not hesitate to work with her again"
- Joe Mersol
Lauren Nelson Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Francisco, 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."

Seldin Design Studios
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Francisco, CA
"My husband and I worked with Rachel at Seldin Design Studios to decorate our first house. It felt like a pretty overwhelming task as we were starting from scratch and had a lot to do on a tight budget within a short time frame (we were expecting our first little one just 5 months after we moved in!). Rachel made the whole process so much easier and less stressful. She started by walking through the house with us and listening to what we hoped to create in each space. She then presented us with a meticulous portfolio with descriptions, drawings, and examples of everything we needed for each room and a breakdown of the cost. My husband and I have pretty different styles and Rachel did a wonderful job of listening to what was important to each of us. She managed to find pieces that we both like at the right price points, striking a nearly impossible balance of cozy and clean. She also introduced fresh colors and patterns, encouraging us to branch out and try new things. She was fast and efficient and did an amazing job of staying within our budget (unheard of in interior design, apparently!). She was incredibly organized and proactive, always following up with vendors and giving us a heads up if there was a delay or other issue with a product we had ordered. We were very indecisive at times and she worked tirelessly and patiently with us the whole way through. Rachel is clearly passionate about her work and always went above and beyond. We are so very grateful to her for helping us create a lovely home."

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 San Francisco, 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 San Francisco, 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 San Francisco, 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 San Francisco 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 Oakland, Richmond, Berkeley, Daly City and San Mateo.

Questions to ask when you meet with local San Francisco 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?
