  • I've had the good fortune to hire Irene's services as an interior designer on a number of projects over the last twenty years. Her sense of style, her ability to collaborate and her skill at translating what's in a client's head into beautiful as well as functional living and work spaces are the qualities that set Irene apart from her peers. My experience of working with Irene has shown her to be a highly dedicated professional with an acumen for solving problems while respecting her clients' needs and deadlines.

  • Irene is it!

    She not only helped me to create a beautiful interior at my Apple Orchard home that showcases my Modern Mexican Art Collection, she also renovated a small barn on the property into a guest home; manages the property from bee keepers, arborists, crop harvest,  and cider/honey production; as well as managing the two houses themselves. Plus, she has served in numerous concierge capacities from organizing a party at the Orchard, to finding me maps, and introducing me to all good things here in Sonoma County.

    She also helped me find the perfect home in San Francisco to purchase, decorated it in a unique and unusual style that fits me and my Japanese art collection perfectly, and now she manages it as well.

    All in all, she helped me design 4 unique homes, manages two of the properties, and helped me to buy one of them. I highly recommend Irene when you are looking for someone to cater to unique and individual needs.

  • Words cannot express my gratitude for creating such a beautiful and comfortable family room for my home. Every detail is perfect for how I like to live in that room. The colors, fabrics, furniture combined to create the room of my dreams. Thank you for your sharing your talents. I look forward to our next project together.

  • We have been enjoying our newly redone home in the desert. At every dinner or party we have had, everyone has remarked how wonderful it is, and what character it has. Your efforts have resulted in a warm and inviting home, tastefully decorated and not just another typical desert earth toned boring home.

    You listened to what Tony and I wanted the end result to be and put it all together without allowing us to make any selections or decisions which would not work. And the best part was that all was accomplished in the given time and budget. You capably supervised all the workman and contractors, making certain that every job they finished was correct and professional.

    We wish you good luck in your relocation and hope to work with you again on another project.

  • Irene provides excellent creative vision to all decor projects she is involved in. I have always appreciated her balance of design, technique, color and portfolio of resources. Most importantly, she is an expert in execution which is critical to getting the job done within the agreed time-line. I would recommend Irene for any creative project. I’ve worked with her in Chicago, IL, Nashville, TN, Geneva Switzerland and Peoria, IL. We hope to work with her again.
