Kunjan did an incredible job decorating my entire 1000sq foot condo. She helped choose furniture, artwork, fixtures, and accessories while working with the existing furniture pieces. She created a beautiful, modern, stylish space that brings me joy to come home to every day. She pushed my style boundaries and used color and accessories in ways I never would have considered on my own. I trusted her judgement and am thrilled I did-- the end result was phenomenal. I feel like I live in a home decor magazine cover :) Kunjan spent significant time upfront and during the design process to determine my style preferences and used Pinterest boards to make reviewing options easy for me. She was notably patient throughout, always listening to my feelings and tastes and not becoming frustrated when I was unsure or choosey about purchase decisions. Communication was great because she dedicated time to me, was accommodating of my schedule, and was very responsive to texts and emails. She always knew just the right stores to look for particular pieces, and proactively made economical choices when she could find the same look for less. Overall, I would highly recommend Kunjan for interior design needs and will use her again in the future if I ever need a style refresh!Jul 20, 2018Verified
Working with Kunjan was the best experience I have ever had with an interior designer. If you are contemplating hiring one, HIRE HER. She is the perfect balance of professional, organized and structured along with very creative, playful, kind and fun. Working with her was a complete delight. Not only was she respectful and supportive of our budget for furnishing our entire one-bedroom apartment, but she was diligent at finding us lots of cost-saving opportunities (eg, waiting for holiday sales, using certain coupons, etc) so we finished perfectly within our budget range. She also adapted well to my and my fiancee's styles: both aesthetics for the apartment and working styles for communicating, selecting and ordering all of our furniture. It made working with her efficient and low-stress. We have already recommended her to our friends who are moving to the city and STRONGLY RECOMMEND her to you, too!Sep 4, 2018Verified
We hired Kunjan for an interior design project: to help improve our living space without making any major furniture purchases. Kunjan helped us make our apartment feel like home! She is very talented, and was a complete joy to work with. There are a several things that are worth mentioning. 1) She spent time with us, in person and on pinterest, learning what we liked and didn't like. 2) She used everything that we already had to the maximum extent possible. 3) She was great at finding cost-effective things and thinking of cost-effective solutions for what we wanted. 4) She has a really great eye for interior design and color! 5) She clearly and professionally communicated about the budget throughout the time she worked with us. 6) She was extremely committed to our project, and accommodating to our schedules. 7) She is easy going and fun. We are so happy with how our home looks now. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her.Oct 20, 2016Verified
My husband Raj and I hired Kunjan to design our 1,300 square foot live/work apartment in Berkeley, which serves as our home and Raj’s photography studio. We loved the architecture of the place: concrete floors, soaring exposed wood ceilings, and plenty of natural light from windows and skylights. But we had no idea how to design the interior to feel like us. Kunjan got to know both of us and helped us find pieces that felt like us. For example, I have a mid century modern writing desk in the middle of my library; being surrounded by books and paper and pen is my happy place. Raj has the most gorgeous teal sofa you’ve ever seen in his photo studio; it looks amazing in his boudoir shoots and has already become a signature piece. Throughout the process, we found Kunjan friendly, helpful, and insightful. She noticed how we used the space and adjusted plans for furniture and decor around that. If you’re looking for a designer to help you make your space look stunning and feel like an expression of you, work with Kunjan!Oct 26, 2019
If you are looking for a great interior designer to decorate your home /office or any space you've come to the right place. When we first moved to San Francisco, I did not know where to look to decorate our new home. I was so glad to have found Kunjan via Thumbtack. As soon as I met with her, I got a sense of her warm personality, open-mindedness and her professionalism. She immediately knew what I wanted and understood my style concept. She assured us that our home will be a beautiful living space that we will enjoy for many years to come. Kunjan has impeccable taste, an excellent eye for color, and very creative ideas to make any home beautiful and outstanding. Which is exactly what she has done for our home and provided excellent service all the way through. We can't thank her enough! We now have a beautiful, modern, comfortable and elegant home Kunjan's vision is amazing. She took the time to listen to us and help us find just what we wanted and gave her expert opinion on what does and does not work. She included many field trips and was very accommodating of our time and busy work schedule. She helped us pick furniture, art work and accessories. She was also mindful of our budget and timeline we needed to complete the project, which is a wonderful quality to have in your designer. Kunjan is a pleasure to work with and makes the whole experience relaxing and fun. I highly recommend using An Affair with Color for all your design needs.Mar 22, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We have two pricing options - Flat project fee (based on the project scope) and Per hour fee - @125 (with a minimum of 20 hours).
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We suggest an initial call to set up an in-person consultation where we discuss the project scope (style, timeline, budget and pricing). We then send out a formal contract with the detailed information regarding the project. Once that's signed and agreed upon, we create a Pinterest board and start sharing options of the items ready to purchase. Our process is simple and as interactive as you want it to be.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Interior design and styling has always been something I wanted to do all my life. It was a passion that I turned into profession 2 years ago when I started my Home Decor blog. I recently launched my online home decor store.
