Since purchasing our home in Santa Fe, I had been spending the last month frantically scoping out the furniture, consignment & import stores.
Although I had already found quite a few household items, I was beginning to feel overwhelmed with how I was going to pull it all together.
I knew as soon as I’d convinced Randi to visit she’d be my savior, & she was! As soon as she walked in the door her experienced eye began to see possibilities.
Over the next several days Randi helped me choose paint colors, pick out beautiful rugs on the Plaza, rearrange furniture & formulate a plan for going on.
Randi is so easy to work with, although I’m sure she cringed at some of my poor decorating choices, she never let on! She is one of those people that is always upbeat & only sees the positive. I’m so happy with what she helped me accomplish in such a short time & can’t wait for her to come back for Round 2.. Thank You Randi!
Our 18 year old kitchen was in need of some major remodeling so we turned to Randi Destefano to help us design the kitchen of our dreams. Randi incorporated our requirements into her vision of what our kitchen could become. She was insightful, responsive, and a true partner in the design process. The final product far exceeded our expectations and we would enthusiastically recommend Randi and Authentic Living Interiors on any design project!
Randi Destefano created a kitchen retreat for our home that seamlessly updated the space while keeping the character of our entire home intact. Randi carefully noted our likes and dislikes, and designed a layout based on these preferences. She took an outdated 1980’s design with lots of wasted space, and created a classic, open kitchen with proper storage for every appliance, dish, and pantry item. She offered ideas for a black granite sink, wrought iron brackets for unique and useful shelving and large dish drawers for easy storage. Randi even worked tirelessly with the granite installers to cut our island and countertop pieces so that each of the ends matched perfectly! We are enjoying our kitchen tremendously thanks to Randi.
“The plans for our new lake home were complete, but we knew that the kitchen needed to fit our lifestyle. Then we hired Randi to review the design, make suggestions, and draw the final space. She was able to visualize what needed to be moved, what needed to be added, and what special cabinet features would be good for us. As a result, we have an efficient kitchen that we love, and that is great for entertaining!”
“We decided it was time for an update to our 25 year old house. We gutted the master bath and added on, doubling the size. Randi came in and developed a plan to incorporate everything we wanted in our new bath. She had a great idea with the master closet, changing the size to give the impression of an entrance into a master suite. When her plans were all drawn up, our contractor was able to use them to achieve the look we wanted. The project is finished, and it looks great!”
“Randi helped us design our kitchen in a timely fashion, giving us several interesting options within our space constraints. She suggested a refrigerator configuration that I had not considered, and it was the perfect solution! Our kitchen is the gathering spot in our home, and it suits our needs perfectly. We love the results, and had a great time working with Randi.”
