Meeting with Alesia was as much as I could have hoped for. She very quickly got a sense of my style and my expression. She articulated it much better than I possibly could have and I knew she totally understood my sense of style. She had many practical suggestions and provided enough input that I can get going on my kitchen remodel while i continue to work with her for designs of my living room and a sitting area in the master bath. It was so appreciated that she really listened, looked and understood me. I have a lot of confidence in her advise and ability to help me achieve my vision for my home. I'm so pleased to be working with her!Aug 24, 2015Verified
Alesia was extremely professional, knew design and was able to provide real tome relevant suggestions. She took time to understand what I wanted to achieve offered guidance and really wanted to understand my passion and themes in my house and the importance to me so her suggestions would not only improve my home, but align with what is comfortable for our lifestyle. I would highly recommend Alesia and I will definitely have her back!!Feb 26, 2019
Alesia did an outstanding job on designing my kitchen! It was everything I hoped it would be and more. Best yet, she did all of this within my budget. There are several things that I really liked about her. She listens and has great taste. Plus, she understands architecture and knows how to blend design with it. She made what could have been an overwhelming process easy by explaining the right level of detail, so I knew what to expect and when. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is remodeling their house or looking to upgrade it. She is worth whatever she charges and more.Nov 1, 2015
Alesia provided a lot of value in a short amount of time for me. Downsizing from a larger place moving back to the Bay Area, I needed some help getting my thoughts focused regarding space arrangements and furniture pieces. Alesia delivered a beautiful layout of the space and offered valuable suggestions that I had not considered. She was fun to work with and I hope to do it again!Oct 15, 2018Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I meet with clients, I like to get a sense of who they are, how they live and how that relates to their dream project. I work with their timeframes, budgets and quickly come up with some solutions. Clients are free to continue to use my services for the duration of the project or not. On an hourly basis, they can opt in for more consulting as the project builds, seek guidance and still have a chance to digest the many options presented.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?B.A. Architecture, UC Berkeley, College of Environmental Design A.A.S. Fashion Design, Fashion Institute of Technology, SUNY, New York Certificate in Construction Management, UC Riverside Board of Directors, US Green Building Council-Inland Empire National Advocate - LEED-Homes Worked in NYC as an Architect designing landmark buildings worldwide. Many years designing custom residential homes; interiors and exteriors. Worked as a Fashion Designer in NYC with designs sold in Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman and featured in leading fashion magazines. Designer/Owner of Tennis Starz, tennis clothing for women. Sold in private country clubs.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I enjoy color, texture, space and user experience. I understand the interplay of those elements and how good design can make an impact. I chose architecture as a major in college and then used my artistic fine art background to explore fashion and interior design. In my current practice, I blend all three as a lifestyle designer where I can create spaces, furnish and accessorize them with elements that are original and customized. I also do wardrobe consulting for men and women.
