StudioBARON Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Rafael, CA
"We worked with StudioBARON Design to help us with an overall blueprint for our modern home and couldn't have been more pleased. Linda's knowledge of design and her skill in helping us shape our ideas to create the home we wanted were both top notch. Linda was always curious about exactly what our dreams were and was prompt and responsive to all our concerns. She was also really skilled at working within our budget and sourcing fantastic items from couches to fabrics for pillows to wall units. I would use StudioBARON for both small or large scale proects."

Jane Ellison
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Rafael, CA
"Jane Ellison did a wonderul job refurnishing our family room. Prior to her work we spent little time in it and now it is our favorit place to be. It is warm, inviting and comfortable. Guests marvel over it. She is very comfortable to work with and she makes suggestions but does not push what she thinkgs. She has a pleasant way of drawing out of from us what we would like but are not quite able to define. My wife and I highly recommend her. "

LMB Interiors
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Rafael, 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!"

Elena Calabrese Design & Decor
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Rafael, CA
"Elena has been a delight to work with as she does a great job with listening to our needs and concerns for aesthetic and functionality and has done so all within our set budget. She has talent and a real eye for design. She is flexible and is really willing to work with you in order to help create a vision that works well within your lifestyle. We recently moved and needed to furnish our new home. The home definitely had a point of view that needed some re-working. Elena, through design, was able to highlight the points of the house that worked already and enhanced the overall look through the new furnishings that she presented and that we all ultimately decided on. My husband and I had different points of view and Elena did a great job of working it all together (no small feat!). We also needed additional storage, which she was able to add with style that worked well within the design. We recommend her highly."

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 Rafael, 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 Rafael, 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 Rafael, 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 Rafael 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, Oakland, Vallejo, Richmond and Berkeley.

Questions to ask when you meet with local San Rafael 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?
