Featured Reviews for Interior Designers and Decorators in San Luis Obispo
Kepler Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Luis Obispo
"Jan specializes in kitchen design. We used her to design the cabinets in our new home's kitchen and baths, and she also helped us to choose colors, tiles and other finishes. She does a lot of Mediterranean design in this area but our house is modern, and she easily adapted, got our taste, and had loads of suggestions, steering us the right way when we got off track. I would definitely use her again for any design project."

Ferris Zoe Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Luis Obispo
"Ferris Zoe Design took a tiny, 1000 square foot 3 bedroom house and turned it into a home! Everyone who came into it after Ferris was done commented on how charming and comfortable it was. Prior to her attention, no one could see how the spaces could be utilized. Her furnishing, hardware and fixture choices, and placement were superb. This job was done on a budget and I was very pleased. I have recommended Ferris Zoe Design many times since then and her energy and style always delivers!"

Mike-o Rogers
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Luis Obispo
"We started with just a kitchen remodel-to take down a wall and open things up. Mike came in with such a vision!! We ended up opening up another wall to make the entire kitchen, living, dining area look bigger and totally fabulous!! The old furniture went out. Mike helped us pick out some spectacular pieces that look awesome in our remodeled areas. He worked with the art work we wanted to accent and made it pop. We absolutely love the end result!!"

Alli Addison Branding and Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in San Luis Obispo
"I originally asked Alli to help me with selection of exterior paint colors and replacement of exterior light fixtures. I was impressed with her professionalism, enthusiasm for the project, presentation style, attention to detail, and everything else involved in this kind of thing, some of which I wasn't ready for. We also talked about the fact that I needed to put my street address on the exterior of my house, and she came up with a brilliant final product! I tend to like the unique designs that I have not seen before. When I was later looking for some assistance in finding a unique and/or at least unusual way to present three portraits in my home, I engaged Alli's sense style and eye, and the final product was something I never would have imagined! She also researched and assisted with finding an interior easel display for a painting and attendant lighting for that and for the portraits. As those items came together, I again asked Alli to assist with finding the perfect rugs for different areas of my home, as well as finding some doormats that weren't your run-of-the-mill ticky-tacky mats. I fully intend to use Alli's services over the coming years in different aspects of the continuing design of my home interior. I HIGHLY recommend her services."

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 Luis Obispo — 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 Luis Obispo 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 Luis Obispo. 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 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 Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, Lompoc and Goleta.

Questions to ask when you meet with local 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?
