Keeping Interiors
Interior Designers and Decorators in Santa Barbara
"I've been working with Samantha Keeping of Keeping Interiors in Santa Barbara on a very extensive remodel project for several months. She has proven herself to be available, knowledgeable, creative, energetic, enthusiastic, patient and sensitive to my needs as a client. Samantha has also been highly budget-conscious and has been able to find beautiful finish materials for my project that are surprisingly economical. She has a great sense of color and design! I tend to be conservative and unadventurous in my approach to decor and Samantha has opened my eyes to new colors and textures and my home will be all the more beautiful for it! Samantha has been able to work well with my contractor and others who have been involved with my project. Finally, she has the ability to see a project through from start to finish and is willing to provide her personal supervision on site to make sure that things are done right! I look forward to continuing to benefit from her professional expertise as my project advances towards completion!"

Jessica Risko Smith Interior Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in Santa Barbara
"Remodel of kitchen/dining/living area of a 1970 ranchstyle home. Designer was very approachable, easy to communicate with; we hit it off immediately. She is meticulous in organization, detail, timeliness, promptness, thoroughness. Her expertise is beyond the design concepts of her profession and her very fresh ideas; she has a very common-sense knowledge of the skill required in accomplishment of the actual work : how a floor is laid, for example, and the details of where & how transitions are applied. Her ideas are fresh, while still in keeping with the livestyle preferences of her clients."

I would have been lost without her, and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!"

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 Santa Barbara — 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 Santa Barbara 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 Santa Barbara. 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?
