San diego interior design


“Nena designed new fireplaces for our home, as well as helping us with lighting, floors, and cabinetry. We are stunned at how it has transformed the entire look of our living areas. I would never have thought our old interior could look this elegant and up to date. The single best investment we made in this project was to secure Nena’s help. Her good taste increased exponentially the benefit we got from this remodel. I recommend her whole heartily.”

“Nena designed a number of rooms around my house, all of which I keep getting complimented on as they literally look like a cut-out from a magazine. I really enjoyed working with her – I just described the style I was going for and she tastefully put together the rooms based on that. She’s very creative, knowledgeable and resourceful in her field, yet she listens carefully to your opinions. She made the experience fun, and if I move I would definitely seek her help again. Thank you Nena!!”

“Over the last seven years I have worked with Nena on the interior finishes for (6) custom homes, all with different owners and tastes.  Each home came out as a unique expression of the Owners and the results were consistently beautiful and one of a kind.
Nena has the rare gift of innate good taste, a keen sense of style and a practical knowledge that allows her to make a fuzzy vision a crisp reality.”

“Working with Nena was great! From her taste, her delightful personality, and the way she made everything work. She took the angst out of all the decisions! I will certainly tell everyone I know who is planning on doing any remodeling to contact Nena!”

“As builders, we need expert assistance in design and procurement of material. We have been working with Nena for 8 years as both a designer and as our sales representative for a multitude of different finish materials. We have found her demeanor, professionalism, capability , and enthusiasm second to none. Her responsiveness and attention to even the smallest issues has been incredibly refreshing in a world where we just expect to wait for
answers. She is not afraid to take on any problem and crafts a solution with a smile and surprising resolve. We couldn’t be happier to see her using her
well established skills to assist clients as a designer. We will be referring her exclusively to our customers and leveraging her tremendous strengths to enhance the outcomes of our company’s projects.”

“I have had the great pleasure of working with Nena for over a decade. In that time I have come to rely on her exclusively and wouldn’t do a tile or plumbing project without first consulting with her. Nena is creative, knowledgeable, professional, honest and responsive. Whereas many designers prioritize making money, Nena puts the clients’ needs first and is flexible to work within a budget. I recommend Nena without reservation.”

“I hired Nena as an intern while she was in design school. I was so impressed, I hired her full time upon her graduation. It was a decision I never regretted. Nena is the ultimate professional. Organized, honest, creative, talented and one of the most personable individuals you will meet.”

“I was ambivalent about hiring an interior designer to help me with my house, but I realized…I needed the help! I interviewed a few potential designers, but once I talked to Nena, I knew she was the right person who could help me.  She put me right at ease, and is incredibly knowledgeable about so many details of both form and function.  She is very practical and was willing to help me to the capacity that I was comfortable at, with as little or as much as I needed without putting any pressure on me.

She consistently goes above and beyond to help when I need it.  She’s also extremely honest in her pricing, and I trust her innately now.  Having her come on board was one of the best decisions that I could have made.”
