She puts herself in their shoes, treating each project as if it were her own, bringing to life their home aspirations with her fresh energy, inspiring & functional approach and expertise.
Moving across the pond from the UK in 2010 was an adventure for Angela and her family, but it also meant yet another house move. After moving home twelve times, she understands very well the challenges homeowners face when trying to make their place feel like home.
Angela discovered her passion for interior design when she bought her first home in 1989. She says that interior design is part of her DNA now.
Enchanted by color all her life, spending every spare moment of her time in the school art room as a teenager, studying, exploring and discovering the intricacies of color through different art applications, she was and still is fascinated not only visually by color but also by the powerful emotional and psychological impact color has on our mood and wellbeing. This impact plays a key role in selecting the perfect colors for clients in her interior designs.
In 2019, with 30+ years experience of designing, remodeling and decorating, she decided to professionally embraced her life long passion, and founded her own interior design consultancy business. As a certified color consultant, redesigner/decorator, e-designer and home stager, she continues to further her interior design education, striving to always advance herself both personally and professionally to better serve her clients.
Angela and her husband, now empty nesters, moved to San Diego last year realizing a dream that they first had when they traveled there from the UK on their honeymoon in 1992. They now live in Pacific Beach with their adorable Goldendoodle and fluffy Tuxedo cat. San Diego is such a beautiful, colorful and friendly place. They love to walk with their dog on the beach in the evenings and are never happier than when their son and daughter, family and friends come to visit!
What People Say About Angela...

You will love Angela!
Angela helped me design and stage my casita rental earlier this year. I had been advertising it for rent for weeks but had very few inquiries and none were suitable. After Angela worked her magic and posting new photos on a traveling nurses website, I had 3 great inquiries in one day and the casita was rented to a lovely nurse from Alabama. She thought the casita was so beautiful, it should be featured in Sunset magazine. My next tenant said the same thing and signed up for 12 months within hours of me posting its availability!
Now I'm converting an upstairs room into a rental suite and Angela is designing and staging the room for me. She's great working with colors and really pays attention to the details. I'm so happy to be working with her!

It was a pleasure working with you!
You really are amazing. It was not easy as I don’t share your talents for folding and draping but was worth every moment learning the tricks. Excited for the pictures! Thanks for your kindness and patience and fairness in the charges.

I enjoyed doing this project with Angie!
Angie was comfortable to work with, prompt in meeting with me, resourceful in her research and use of technology, had helpful observations, understood my taste, and was sensitive to my budget. I highly recommend her services!

Different from most other decorators!
I know all the local decorators and can often tell which one decorated a room just from the paint colors they chose. A lot of them have a list of paint colors and they use the same colors each time. Angela doesn't do that, her paint colors are all chosen specifically for the room. You never know what colors she will choose and they always look perfect.
