Kriste Michelini Interiors offers residential interior design services throughout San Francisco, Silicon Valley, East Bay, Marin, Napa, Sonoma, and Lake Tahoe. We also offer commercial design services. Our streamlined approach simplifies the process of designing a new home or remodeling your existing residence. We manage each project from concept to completion; handling order procurement and installations, with a keen eye for detail and efficiency.
Our overarching goal, from start to finish, is to create an integrated design that meets our clients’ needs in welcoming and innovative ways. We begin the process by learning about your dreams and visions for your project, and then we meet to discuss your design inspirations and to photograph your space. If appropriate, we will involve your architect and other consultants. We’ll define the project scope, timeline, and budget, and prepare a work agreement.
The creative work begins with the development of client mood boards and interior floor plans. We then create and present palette options, which include fabrics, floor materials, paint selections, and hard finishes. Finally, with your aesthetic and functional preferences at top of mind, we present furniture, art, cabinetry, rug and lighting selections.
As design plans are confirmed and approved, we prepare product proposals for your approval and order design products. Throughout this phase, we remain in close contact with artisans, craftsmen, and vendors, to track the progress of your project. We work with a trusted receiving warehouse to ensure merchandise is received, inspected, and held for you until your final installation date. You will receive weekly project updates to maintain visibility throughout the process.
We have built a reputation for well-edited interiors that integrate beauty and comfort in fresh and welcoming ways, and that truly reflect our client preferences and desires. When your project is ready for installation, Kriste and her team install the completed design concept. This will also include specially sourced decorative accessories. The final result is a space that reflects who you are and what you cherish, allowing you to feel at home in your space — enriching your life and the lives of those around you.
