Elena Calabrese Design’s philosophy is about combinations. She creates visual interest with layers of texture, combines sleek modern elements with earthy ones and adds a touch a glam, the unexpected. Frequently combining vintage with new, modern sleek elements with organic natural materials, these combinations are what create an interesting environment.
Elena strives to create an interior that is elevated in its’ design as well as reflective of the client’s personality. Services offered range from, designing and implementing a complete interior schematic, to color consultations, to space and furniture planning, as well as designing and customizing furniture pieces.
The joy she derives from her work comes from creating spaces that are modern and warm, that nurture and inspire, and reflect her own distinct individual Northern California style.
Elena earned a BFA, from the California College of the Arts, and studied Interior Design at the University of California at Berkeley. After a decade in the fashion industry, working for DKNY in New York City, and designing accessories for large companies in the Bay Area, Elena made the inevitable switch to interior design in 2007.
She lives in Mill Valley California, with her husband, son and two Maine Coon cats.
