Our Customers Say It Best

Mark, Am sitting comfortably – on my new Eames ea217 desk chair – excellent product (I have Vitra Originals at work – but this seems just as good). Will order more – thanks.

Stuart Degg. Stevenage (July 2016)

Hi Mark. I just wanted to say a quick thank you. The egg chairs and Warren Platner side table look fantastic on our landing, see attached. I’m really impressed with the quality – well worth paying a little extra for. It was also refreshing that everything arrived very well packaged so undamaged, as its frustrating how often this isn’t the case these days and items have to be returned after weeks of waiting.

#san diego interior design



Rebecca Flynn started her design career in 1997 and graduated from The Design Institute of San Diego in Interior Design. She was fortunate to start her career with the distinguished cabinet maker, Michael Borrelli and was part of his team for 14 years. With the guidance and mentoring of Michael, Rebecca was able to help establish the interior design portion of the company. She became a Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD), Certified Bath Designer (CBD), and Certified California Interior Designer (CID) and become an Allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). She has completed over 170 projects and has won 20 awards including San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles Bath of the Year, and Small Kitchen of the Year several times. She has also won design awards from the San Diego National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA).

Giving back to the community, Rebecca has served as a judge for the NKBA National Design Competition. She has served as a volunteer for the San Diego NKBA Chapter for the last 12 years, and is past president for the chapter. She also serves on the Scripps Ranch Auxiliary for Rady Children’s Hospital. And has raised funds for the AIDS Lifecycle Organization by riding her bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles three different times.

In her free time, Rebecca enjoys spending time with her sons, family and friends, listening to music and drawing.

step 1:
our first meeting

I offer a free consultation in your home and just listen to what your design wishes are. We can then establish the scope of work, and discuss the timeframe for an initial design. A design retainer fee will then be developed and we can move forward.

step 2:
the design process

The design retainer will reserve hours for client meetings, help create a preliminary design concept, and establish the final design. The final design includes floor plans, elevations, colored renderings, along with all finishes and design aspects of the project. I will also meet with contractors and sub-contractors to help estalish the cost of the project. Once the final cost and final presentation is approved, and the contracts are signed, we can move to the execution portion of the project.

step 3:
the execution

I will be involved throughout the project, working with contractors and helping with answers or concerns that may arise. I will see the project from the design conception to the final step.

Project Portfolio

CityFront Terrace

Virtual Tour This kitchen was voted 2008’s “best small kitchen” in San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles Magazine. I extended the small kitchen outside of its original footprint. The Sapele veneer cabinetry and solid glass backsplash allowed for the vibrant countertop to be the focal point. Every inch was used in this very clean, functional and boat-like design.

CityFront Terrace

Virtual Tour This was a whole-house remodel, and the client was out of the country. I designed the entire home via phone conversations and drawings. The client only saw the project when it was completed, and he and his family were very happy with the final product.


The client wanted to incorporate the color blue into the design, since the home is by the ocean. We used zebrawood with Sapele and Wenge accents, and created a pantry underneath the stairs. High-durability travertine was used on the floor.


This beachfront property needed a zen, tranquil feel. We used a combination of ash veneer and zebrawood throught the home.

La Jolla

Virtual Tour The media center was previously designed. We wanted the second phase of the design to complement the media center. New bathrooms, flooring, and even paint were part of the design.

Renaissance Tower

The client wanted to modernize this condo so he could sell it. We used Sapele veneer and rosewood flooring. We wanted an elegant entry that stepped into an open space. The powder room won “best small bathroom” in San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles Magazine. The client sold the project very shortly after completion.

San Carlos

Virtual Tour The client wanted to update the 1970’s kitchen, but still keep the color tones of gray, white and red that were used throughout the home. We achieved a clean and contemporary design.

Scripps Ranch

Virtual Tour The original 1970’s kitchen needed a new design. We wanted to use some traditional aspects mixed with modern design. We used walnut veneer with a custom bleached stain to complement the surrounding finishes. We used marble and stainless steel countertops, porcelain flooring, and Top Knobs hardware. This kitchen won “best kitchen” in the NKBA San Diego Star Design Awards.

Scripps Ranch

Virtual Tour My client waited 26 years to remodel her kitchen. She is an avid cook and wanted a large kitchen to prepare and bake meals with her family and friends. We used cherry cabinetry from Crystal Cabinet Works, marble countertops, and eliminated the upper cabinets to install large open windows.

Scripps Ranch

Virtual Tour The floor plan did not change from the original layout, but we added an island and removed the existing table. This project included minimal changes, but created additional storage and counter space.

Solana Beach

This kitchen was divided in the middle to accommodate an office. We opened it up and created a large kitchen with a office space. I created a rock pebble design to match the existing flooring and fill in the old foot print. We used eucalyptus veneer, Caesarstone countertops, and pebble backsplash. This ktichen won “best kitchen” in San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles Magazine.


Design renderings help my clients and tradesmen visualize the final design concept.

A Designer Guide To Decorating In Contemporary Style

By Coral Nafie. Interior Decorating Expert

Updated April 27, 2016.

You might like a contemporary style of decorating if you like to keep current with styles, enjoy things that are modern, of today, right now.

While it s been thought that modern interiors are cold and minimalist, today s contemporary interiors are comfortable and welcoming without being cluttered and dark. It s a style that is equally appropriate for offices and stores, lofts and homes.

A contemporary style home can be a quiet and comfortable retreat.

Continue Reading Below

To achieve the look of a contemporary home, it s important to stick to some basic rules.

Fundamentally, simplicity, subtle sophistication, texture and clean lines help to define contemporary style decorating. Interiors showcase space rather than things. By focusing on color, space, and shape, contemporary interiors are sleek and fresh.

Learn about some more of the characteristics and elements of a contemporary style of decorating and how you might bring the look into each room of your home.

  • Color
    Neutrals, black, and white are the main colors in contemporary style interiors. The palette is often punched up and accented with bright and bold color. Black is often used to ground and define a contemporary style room. With walls painted in a basic neutral, you have a wonderful backdrop for bold colored accessories. If the walls and windows are painted in pastels, the trims should be neutral. If a wall is a bright, bold color, neutrals should be used everywhere else.
  • Line and Space
    The most obvious and distinctive element of a contemporary style interior design is line. It s found in architectural details, use of bold color blocks, high ceilings. bare windows, and geometric shapes in wall art and sculpture. The bare space, on walls, between pieces of furniture, and above in upper areas, becomes as important as the areas filled with objects. In contemporary interiors, less is more. Each piece stands out as individual and unique.

Take advantage of structural elements. Air ducts may hang from a ceiling, broken bricks provide texture and stability, and exposed plumbing pipes are perfectly acceptable in a contemporary style interior. To draw the eye, paint these structural details in bold contrasting colors, or to diminish their importance, blend them with the walls.

Continue Reading Below

  • Contemporary Style Furniture
    Smooth, clean, geometric shapes are essential for contemporary style furniture pieces. Upholstered furniture often wears black, white, or other neutral tones in textured natural fibers. Cover it in a neutral, black, or bold fabric. Fabrics often have a natural look found in wool, cotton, linen, silk, jute, and add textural appeal.

Furniture pieces should be simple and uncluttered, without curves or decoration. Sofas, chairs, and ottomans have exposed legs. Beds and chairs usually have no skirt, trim, fringe, or tassels.

Pillows add a shot of color and texture in clean geometric shapes.

  • Use furniture and accessories to make a bold statement in contemporary style interior. Use a basic background and shout out with your favorite color on a piece that will stand out.
  • Less is more! In a contemporary style interior, don t use ruffles, excessive carved details, fringe, or floral prints. Abolish cute and small. Go basic, bare, bold, and structural.
  • Floors in a contemporary style home should be bare and smooth in wood, tile, or vinyl. If you must use carpet for sound control or warmth, choose commercial grades. Add color and texture with plain or geometric-patterned area rugs.

    These Color Trends Are Dominating 2016

    The Look: Pink

    “Imagine a sunset on an August evening, with the fading light shading the sky a gorgeous gray-tinged pink — that’s this color. It’s restrained and refined in this Manhattan living room. and it serves as a foil to the black sofa and the patinated-bronze coffee table. This apartment is in a skyscraper that dates back to 1929, so the pink is a nod to luxury and exuberence of the Art Deco period. It also references the views of the faded redbrick buildings outside.” Jamie Drake

    Make it yours: Benjamin Moore Salmon Peach 2013-50

    Color Inspiration: Cameo Pink

    “Like the name implies, this subtle pink has the coral and beige undertones you sometimes find in vintage cameos. It doesn’t feel juvenile, and its sophistication worked well in a guest bedroom I designed. The rug and curtains I chose both had fearless patterns, but this soothing pink calmed them down.” — Mara Miller

    Color Inspiration: Warm Blush

    “I adore pink! It’s the color of romance, of plush bedrooms and posh dressing rooms. For a living room, I did this blush pink in a very monochromatic way, with upholstered pieces in the same hue. Accents of bright white and gold, touches of crystal and a 1940s French bilbliothèque put its mystique in motion. Pairing pink with handsome antiques brings out the color’s quiet strength.” Windsor Smith

    Make it yours: Benjamin Moore Warm Blush 892

    Color Inspiration: Pink Ballet Slipper

    “I really want to do blush — that powdery pink I’m seeing more and more in materials like stone and tile, as well as paint. It’s a romantic color that warms up the essence of a room, and it doesn’t look juvenile at all when you use it with metallic tones, like antique brass or bronze. Bring in some teal or gray-green for even more sophistication.” Jaime Rummerfield

    Make it yours: Glidden Pink Ballet Slipper 10YR 67/111

    The Look: Yellow

    “Yellows tend to go green or brown, but this shade is clear and bright. I’d take a leap of design faith and pair this hue with a lush upholstered bed and mismatched side tables.” Robert Passal

    Make it yours: Valspar Soft Ducking 3001-2A

    Color Inspiration: Corn Silk

    “I think of the light streaming through a window in the morning, the warmth of it, and how it has a way of enveloping and comforting you. This mellow yellow creates the same feeling. Alive and chameleon-like, it lends itself to a multitude of palettes.” Charlotte Moss

    Make it yours: Benjamin Moore Corn Silk CC-218

    Lara Robby/Studio D

    Advertisement – Continue Reading Below

    Color Inspiration: Funky Yellow

    “I want a fresh new start for the year, and this yellow would be very uplifting. It’s a yellow with a green base, a citrusy chartreuse that also has warmth, which makes it easier to live with. I see it in a breakfast room or a garden room, with gray, mushroom or taupe. It also works well with plum, mauve or burgundy. Actually, you could add it to almost anything and get a great combination.” Kim Alexandriuk

    Make it yours: Sherwin-Williams Funky Yellow 6913

    The Look: Green

    “This year, I’m seeing soft and sophisticated neutrals everywhere, but not as much on the walls anymore. I’m loving the idea of layering neutral-color furnishings and accessories in rooms with walls painted in intense, saturated colors, like army green.” Jenny Komenda

    Make it yours: Sherwin-Williams Relentless Olive SW 6425

    Lara Robby/Studio D

    Color Inspiration: Deep Green

    “I’ve suddenly got this absolute passion for emerald green. It’s such a rich, vibrant, exciting color that seems to transcend all the trends, and it works equally well in modern or traditional environments. Like putting a plant in a room, it brings life to a space. Everything feels fresher and takes on this luxurious vibe.” Martyn Lawrence Bullard
