Improving the quality of life for my clients
Thoughtful Interior Design is so important to the quality of our lives. Our homes have to be our haven, our recharging station; they have to work for us and nourish us.
I founded Robineve Interiors / Universal Design as a way of improving the quality of life for my clients, no matter their age or lifestyle needs. I have come to see that good design can solve problems, and I invite my clients to join me on a happy journey of discovery.
As I see it, working with a designer should be a collaborative process, where both the client and the designer (and the contractor/architect), stretch and grow with new insights. Good design emerges from understanding my client’s priorities—the functional, the financial, their entertaining style, the family lifestyle. It has to reflect the truth of their lives if it is to succeed in its’ purpose of nurturing and expanding life.
For over 20 years, I have been creating award-winning homes throughout Northern California. I mix my international experience with the Bay Area’s unique Pacific Rim aesthetic, to create environments that are dramatic, welcoming and FUN. In fact, I’m told that the whole experience definitely IS fun!
