MESMERIZING MILL VALLEY

We used Paulina’s services from beginning to end, for both architecture and interior design, and have nothing but glowing feedback! The project started because of her out-of-the-box thinking on how a house we were looking at could be transformed from a modern to a traditional style. Her vision convinced us to purchase our home in the first place. It quickly became clear that Paulina’s two guiding principles were practicality and beauty, both with intense attention to detail. Whenever something was built that didn’t exactly match her high expectations, typically issues we overlooked, she aggressively pushed the developer to do it right. We were somewhat skeptical of the remodel at the beginning, but in the end, the remodel came in roughly on-time, below budget, and we couldn’t be happier. We recently had a chef cook in our kitchen and he noted it was not only the nicest kitchen he had ever cooked in, but the layout was also the most practical.

FRENCH MODERN

The house is beautiful but, equally important, it harmonizes with our own personality and lifestyle. For example, my wife is a cooking enthusiast and we were able to create a space that is both lovely and super functional. Part of my own (conservative) goal was to have a look that would still be relevant in ten years and Paulina was able to create a timeless look for us.

Paulina brings integrated knowledge of design, architecture, and construction so her work is ‘buildable’. Her depth of experience enabled her to anticipate potential problems and find solutions when anything unexpected arose. She is also super organized in presenting the results of our decisions in a way that everyone—the general contractor and all of the subs—knew exactly what was needed and where it was placed. We loved working with her and would work with her again without question.

Paulina has previously worked on numerous projects in our home including our kitchen and master bedroom. Her incredible personality and professionalism have made our experience working with her so incredibly easy and enjoyable. Paulina possesses an amazing ability to look at an entire project and understand how to solve problems in a meaningful and detailed manner.

 

Her ability to listen, attention to detail and communication set her apart. Her follow-through is excellent and her finished product is nothing short of perfect.

COZY KENTFIELD

I have had the pleasure of working with Paulina while renovating, remodeling and furnishing our home. My initial impression of Paulina was her superb sense of style while having the capacity to incorporate my financial and personal specifications. She has the expertise, experience and knowledge in a wide range of design aspects. Her ability to make quick decisions when necessary was helpful in time-sensitive situations, yet she has the patience to work through tough design elements until the right product or outcome is reached. She doesn't compromise if the result isn't right. I have worked with other designers in the past and have never felt as comfortable as I do with Paulina.

I would highly recommend Paulina for her extensive knowledge and her personality. The combination makes working with her an absolute pleasure. The result is a beautiful, comfortable and timeless home.

We love how the outdoor furniture turned out. It looks so much better ~ it was worth every penny. A great solution. I also want to say again how grateful I am to have found you and for all the magic you’ve done with our home. On a zoom call yesterday the woman I was meeting with said ‘you have the most beautiful background by far of anyone at the company’ and that is something I hear often. Thank you for helping create such a beautiful space.
