We fashion homes that are effortlessly chic and creatively curated, serving interior design clients all over Southern California, from Long Beach to San Diego to Los Angeles.
You already have a pretty good sense of what you like design-wise, even if you lack the expertise to pull your home’s look together in a cohesive way.
You know how you want your home to function, but you feel like a trained creative eye could find even better ways to get the most out of your space.
And while you LOVE having plenty of options to choose from, as a busy professional, you don’t have time to visit every design center and second-guess yourself on a thousand tiny decisions.
I’ve earned design degrees from San Diego Mesa College and San Diego State University. I’m also an Allied Member of The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), Certified Kitchen & Bath Designer (CKBD) through NKBA, and Certified Interior Designer (CID). In addition to being a national award-winning interior designer, I was inducted into NKBA’s 30 Under 30 in 2015.
As a little girl, I sketched floor plans of my future dream home that I wanted to share with my grade 2 crush, modeled closet systems out of cardboard boxes, and spent hours buried in IKEA catalogues. I know what you’re thinking: Not all of us are lucky enough to find our calling so early!
But not realizing where my creativity could take me, I dove into property management in Pacific Beach, San Diego and earned my CA Real Estate License. While it wasn’t my dream job, it proved to be a valuable business background for managing my clients’ design investments and meeting project deadlines.
Fast forward to when a serendipitous conversation led me to enroll in one of the best interior design programs available, and I finally found my true passion! I realized THIS was my purpose — using my creative gifts to transform peoples’ homes and lives.
Since 2009, I’ve been working in the interior design industry. I’ve interned for a hospitality design company, worked in various furniture and fabric showrooms, and been an interior designer for a design-build firm. I decided to hang out my shingle and launch m studio interior design in 2015. And now I get to do what I love best: Design homes that are totally customized to the clients I work with!
Even though we knew what we wanted for our new build, Megan’s knowledge and expertise helped us come up with even better ideas, cull our options, and make the best design choices for us. She quickly gets on the same page with you and understands what you want, no matter your style. Megan was always available to provide input to our architect and builder, enhancing their vision and designing some of our favorite features in the space including our open-concept kitchen layout, the archway over our stove, and the built-in bookshelves surrounding our fireplace. We’ve already hired her for a second project and recommended her to friends!”
Snort laughing, hands down.

Learning Spanish and trying new plant-based recipes.
Yoga is my jam. I also love pilates, paddleboarding, and foosball!

French fries! The crunchier, the better.
Amanda’s global travels let her experience so many cultural aesthetics — she got hooked on all things interior design. Her jam is supporting designers with admin, marketing, and project management. A compulsive home redecorator and busy bee mom, she can multitask like nobody’s business.
After spending 10 years in the UK as an Account Director for a residential property developer, Melissa became an admin sidekick for designers. When she’s not juggling client projects, she’s juggling twins. She makes a mean lemon cheesecake, loves a good bargain-hunt, and isn’t sorry about living off iced vanilla lattes.
Amelia is a tech geek who translates my creative ideas into detailed plans through the power of computer-aided drafting. When she’s not whipping up fabulous 3D drawings, she’s beating someone at video games, thinking about her next snack, or finding any excuse to strap on her roller skates.
