HELLO, I'M CARMEN RENE
I am an Oakland-based interior designer specializing in bold, culturally-rich, curated design. My design style is eclectic, layered and maximalist..
I LIVE for the blend of clean modern lines, playful shapes, bold colors, fun prints and dynamic patterns. I bring those elements together to create a beautiful and unexpected work of art.
I believe interior design is a personal journey where we can bend the rules to chase our wildest dreams. As a classically trained designer in both Architecture (B-Arch) and Fine Art, I love to combine functionality and innovation. Over the past nine years, I have designed high-end residential homes, kitchens + baths, hotels, restaurants and bars throughout the Bay Area. As a potential client, you can anticipate a personalized experience that will be comfortable, authentic, exciting and just plain fun!
