Introduction: COVID-19 Update: During this unsettling and complicated time, our health and well being comes first. With this in mind, I am offering a new way for us to work together. I'm offering E-Design for all projects. We can work together safely and virtually using Zoom, Google Hangouts, phone, text & email. It has proven to be an effective way to move forward during this period. Our design partners and vendors in the industry are also continuing to provide service and support for projects. Even though we can't meet in person yet, we will be seeing each other virtually! And I look forward to it. I welcome your questions & inquiries. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Let's make your living space beautiful! I help craft comfortable, elegant interiors for homes in the Bay Area. After working with wonderful names in the industry - Stephanie Marsh at Marsh & Clark Design, The San Francisco Arts & Antiques Show, Ascent Apartments, The Pierce & Maker's Market - I offer interior decor services ranging from design consults to full room designs. And I share ideas, inspiration and behind-the-scenes with my readers, on my design blog. From small, cozy condos to large family homes, I work diligently to create spaces that blend old and new, high and low, traditional & contemporary, creating spaces that feel fresh! I work closely with you to understand your personal style, lifestyle and budget. And I examine the environment and features of your home. Then we create a space that represents the best version of your tastes. My services run from space planning, to paint color recommendations, to selecting specific items for your room (a gorgeous chandelier or some window treatments, for ex), to full room designs, from start to finish. Everyone deserves to feel proud of their living space! And I'm honored to be a part of the process.

I was a recent graduate who was looking for an inexpensive free lance designer to design my room. I am so glad that I chose to work with Zeenat. Right from the day when I contacted her on Thumbtack, she was very responsive and professional. The designs she came up with were very artistic and all the elements in my room fit so well with each other. She also was very helpful with installation of the decor. I love the feel of my room. I recently had friends over and every single one of them loved the ambience of the room. I would highly recommend Zeenat!

We could not ask any more of our experience with Zeenat. She has been extremely responsive, creative, flexible and professional. From the first time I reached out to her via email (she replied within a day or two to set up a time to chat via phone), to the last home visit to double check on the natural lighting in our space, working with Zeenat has put me at ease and I trust her experience and expertise wholeheartedly. She has industry connections that work to our benefit and extensive knowledge of current trends, as well as a great understanding of classic interior design. I always look forward to our meetings and I can't wait to work with her again!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer 2 pricing options. Project based pricing - based on the scope of the project and your needs. An Hourly Fee - at $85/hr

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It starts with an initial phone call to speak about your project, understand what you're looking for and set up an in-person visit to your home. During the in-person visit, we'll survey your space, talk about your personal style, lifestyle, and your needs, wants and budget. I'll ask you to fill out a brief design survey and share a Pinterest or Houzz board with inspiration images - the more the better! - and fill out a brief design survey. This gives me a good understanding of your style & how you want the space to look, feel & function. After that, I work on design concepts and a scheme for your room(s). Based on our discussions, this can include space planning, paint color reccos, new furnishings, refreshing existing pieces, lighting, storage, window treatments, arts & accents. Once we've finalized the design, I'll send you specific product purchase info to buy these items, and for any to-the-trade only items, I'll help you get them. An E-Design Option - Don’t live in the Bay Area but think I might be able to steer you in the right direction? Simply email me photos of the room you want help with and basic room dimensions. We’ll have a phone or email discussion about what you want, and I’ll email you my thoughts and picks for your space, same as above.
