Describe the featured project.

This project was a collaboration with Nadia Designs and the homeowner/builder. It is new construction designed to take advantage of the city and ocean views. The home was built with three floors of living space and designed for indoor and outdoor living. Features of the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home include
Smart Home technology, custom cabinetry, a wine room and a media room.

What makes your firm unique in  this industry?

We work in partnership with our clients. I believe in the value of personalized service. Every project tells a unique story. We use collaboration, planning and management to achieve results. Great interior design is a symphony of elements. I believe your home should reflect your unique personality. We challenge the norm. Functionality is critical. We provide design options and selections utilizing cutting-edge technology, expert craftsmanship, luxurious materials, and the latest in available features and products.

When did you start your business in the South Bay?

I did design work with a firm in Boston, and they sent me to manage projects in amazing locations. I would live in the area where the project was from preconstruction through completion, and I embraced all my surroundings during that time—from Cape Cod to New Orleans, Miami, Dallas and Scottsdale. I loved the adventure of exploring each area and seeking out local artists and artisans. Eventually my travels and a project landed me in Southern California. The South Bay was a natural fit. It felt like home. I opened Nadia Designs in 2008.

What are some of the most exciting projects you’ve completed?

A vacation home on Maui, a complete  remodel in Pacific Palisades, new  construction in Venice Beach and The Consulate of Angola.

I am humbled by the many returning clients who I have worked with on multiple projects.
