  • E A S I E S T T O W O R K T H R O U G H : Although the blog was a continuous journey, working through this part of the module was the easiest and most rewarding. It lent the opportunity for exploration beyond the brief, and carved out a designated period of time to reflect on assignments completed post submission step by step, becoming more and more in depth the more comfortable the process became.

  • Over the past 25 years, my wife and I had undertaken 5 major remodels, without consulting a designer. While we were happy with the results, the projects never seemed to have the impact, or "wow" factor we were hoping for. When we recently decided to remodel our home on the Northern California coast, we decided that it was time to bring in a professional. From the moment we met with Irene, we knew we had made the right decision. Her design ideas, from stud to sofa, were exactly what we were looking for. From a choppy maze like lay out, the space was transformed into a flowing open floor plan that capitalized on the beautiful ocean views. Irene's paint, fabric, and fixture choices were right on the mark, and if ever we had any hesitation with a design choice, she worked with us to find an alternative idea that stayed true to the overall vision. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Irene Turner for your project. And yes, we finally have the "wow" factor we've been looking for.

  • Irene was amazing for our project. She is very responsive and professional and helped us design a clear vision/plan for our house. This plan is in tune with us and also allows us to work with peace of mind as we know where we are going in our design. She is a very creative, respectful and efficient interior designer. We would work with her again on another project in a heartbeat and wouldn't take on a project without her input.

  • You created a warm, comfortable, and beautiful space, that while only 1200 square feet including the terrace, allows us to have our family of 14 all over for dinner comfortably. We look forward to enjoying our winter home for years to come! Thank you, and we look forward to our next project together.

  • 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 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.
