Pauline Vertigan, ASID

  Pauline is fortunate that she knew from a young girl that she wanted to be in the design world.  She has an innate ability for pulling together patterns and colors and a passion for doing the work. In particular, Pauline loves the opportunity to work on total home projects, from the starting point of construction through the delivery of furniture and accessories. Pauline’s process includes imagining who will live in the home and how each space will be considered. In doing this, Pauline is able to make better and more personalized decisions. Through many years of experience, she knows her way through the construction process and has great knowledge of products and material applications. She gives consideration to universal design practices without compromising a stunning aesthetic. Pauline is as meticulous as she is creative and is driven to have each project run smoothly, on time, and in budget. On a day off you’d most likely find Pauline enjoying her own home spending time with her family.

Paulette Campbell

  Paulette has an amazing talent in Accessory design. No room is complete until the “jewelry” is in place. “For true design completion, that allows the room to be interesting and inviting, you need accessories. And, by that I mean artwork, area rugs, portable lighting and unique tabletop items”, says Campbell. It takes years of training and sourcing to be able to procure the appropriately scaled and unique accessories for any given space. “We love including clients treasured items for display, it’s usually the small figurine from a trip or special photograph that makes client’s feel at home”.

Paulette attends trade markets, follows many artists, publications, and vendors to pull together the best items in making spaces truly amazing and complete. Away from the studio Paulette practices and instructs yoga, hikes, cycles, and loves to travel.

Judy Segovia

  Judy enjoys the process of bringing a design concept together. Judy’s extensive education, a BS in Interior Design and a Masters of European Interior Design from Madrid, helps her bring a unique perspective to each project. Her extensive skills of 2D and 3D capabilities are a forte to assist clients in bringing their vision to reality. It’s incredibly valuable for clients to have a better understanding of how their home will look on paper (or computer screen) before construction begins. 

In her free time, Judy loves to travel abroad to different countries to discover and gain knowledge of culture and design. She volunteers with her church to help her local community, and she is always open to discover new coffee/tea shops that offer a good Match latte.
