CBI has extensive experience in 'from the ground up' new construction & major remodeling projects.  We prefer to come into a project at the same time as the architect but can jump in at any point.

Arguably the most important element of any home is the lighting.  How well you live in a space is related to an effective lighting plan.  The proper lighting can save energy, highlight your furnishings and artwork and present your home in the most beautiful light.

The construction process is complicated but Cynthia simplifies it by working closely with the general contractor to anticipate when design decisions will be needed.  This will help keep the project on track and on time.

Design Vs Decorate.jpg

decorator vs. designer

Cynthia's education has expanded her range of abilities from that of a 'decorator' to a certified 'designer'.  She can now positively affect the entire process from enhancing the architects vision to placing the perfect last accessory.  Whether you are remodeling or building a new custom home, she will create the space of your dreams.

custom furnishings

Many lots on the Southern California coast are narrow.  Finding ready-made furnishings that maximize the space and suit your tastes can be tough.  We have well established relationships with manufacturers of custom pieces that help solve so many furnishing dilemmas.
