Thoroughly unimpressed by this firm’s work ethic and professionalism (lack of). After I hired them they could not keep their appointments straight with me, not punctual, disorganized altogether. They misrepresented themselves. In a short period of time, I lost all confidence in their ability to handle my interior design project. After accepting my retainer fee deposit, the Romero-Obeji firm had the audacity to block my phone calls and email as a result of my repeated attempts to connect with them. I want my deposit back.Nov 28, 2019Verified
romero + obeji interior design are an amazing team and we couldn't be happier with the way our house turned out. Hector and Chris possess an incredible ability to know exactly what will work and what you will love! All the furniture and quality of contractor work was top-notch. The entire design process from start to finish was very organized and efficient. They are also extremely prompt in responding to any questions and very up-front about costs. I can actually say we have remained friends after the process, despite how difficult and picky we were during the transition. Look no further for interior designers and hire them today!Jul 15, 2019Verifiedromero + obeji interior design - servicing so cal's reply
Wow! Your mentions are the best part of our work. High expectations are what we deliver and live by. We get it! We are glad to do this again with you! Thank you!
When I met Hector Romero, I recognized he was a professional and really knows his business. I didn't really know if I could afford to hire a professional interior designer. Turns out, hiring Hector was the best decision. I was happily surprised how fun the whole process was. With his trained eye and inspired thinking he created a space I could only dream of. My new home is warm, comfortable, elegant and beautiful. Thank you!Oct 13, 2016Verifiedromero + obeji interior design - servicing so cal's reply
What a transformation! Thanks, you for entrusting in us. I’ll never forget the look on your face when we did the big reveal. We hope you enjoy your new chic interiors that now reflects the whole package that makes you! Thanks for the review we appreciate it.
I highly recommend Romero + Obeji Interior Design. My husband and I decided a few months ago that we were ready, after 15 years and raising 3 kids in this house, to finally decorate our home the way we wanted. We realized that we had no idea where to start and we were afraid of making costly mistakes so I posted on Thumbtack that we were looking for an interior designer. I received many replies, but is was only Romero + Obeji Interior Design whose website I visited time an again and then who I ultimately contacted and hired. We are so happy that we found Romero + Obeji Interior Design. Hector and Chris spent a considerable amount of time with our family learning not only our decorating tastes, but also getting to know who we all are and how we hoped to use our space. They then successfully transformed our house, that was previously terribly dated and full of awkward and unused spaces, into a home that is current (yet timeless), welcoming and flows seamlessly from room to room. They found high quality painters and helped us select beautiful paint for our walls and cabinets that brightened every inch of our home; they sourced a beautiful counter top and back splash material that easily updated our kitchen; they designed our living spaces so that each room became a usable space; and then they furnished the home with a mix of new pieces (that you will not find in any furniture showroom or your neighbor's house) and some of our existing pieces to create a home that is beautiful and truly reflects our family and our tastes. We love our "new" home, but if the time comes for us to move on from here we would not hesitate to hire Romero + Obeji again.Aug 30, 2017Verifiedromero + obeji interior design - servicing so cal's reply
