Hi, I'm Diana!

I'm an interior designer, color expert, and lifestyle writer. I blends my love of color and the balance of Feng Shui, for an unexpected and totally unique approach to design. I authored "Sell Your Home Without Losing Your Zen", an essential guide for stressed out home sellers. As a San Luis Obispo-based interior designer, I work with awesome clients up and down the West Coast to create the space of their dreams, (I can also work with you online.)

As a lifestyle and interior design writer, I've contributed to numerous national home decor publications including HGTV's FrontDoor, Better Homes & Gardens, The Spruce, HuffPost, SheKnows.com, Readers Digest, and more. See Diana's favorite posts and articles for decorating and color ideas and inspiration. 

I am also the creative spark behind www.gorgeouscolor.com.

Diana gave us the "fresh eyes" we needed to rethink our kitchen remodel. She went beyond our expectations and offered design ideas we had not thought of. It was a pleasure working with her as we take our initial steps towards starting our makeover.  - C.G.

 

Wonderful experience. I have lived with this design dilemma for nearly 10 years, a long narrow living room that was not comfortable or inviting. I have tried a hundred different furniture arrangements and painted many times, nothing ever felt comfortable.

 

After two visits from Diana I now have a living room I love and really enjoy being in. So worth the money. She listened, gave great suggestions, and reasons why things work and don't work. We used a lot of the items I already had, and the paint colors are perfect. Fantastic.

I have worked with Diana several years now, and I am completely impressed. She not only has a great personality, always positive, but she also has a strong work ethic. She is not afraid to get her hands dirty and I find her hauling and driving and working late hours to finish the project. She has a strong sense of scale and balance in design, and a good understanding of textiles and case goods in terms of form and function. She has gone beyond the scope of the job to take care of issues, find new resources that work better for the project without fail. Diana has boundless energy and I will continue to ask for her assistance in design work, fabric and furniture purchases, color consultation and space planning. Her taste level is excellent and she keeps budget and personal style requests at top of mind. I employ many contractors and subcontractors in my business and Diana is at the top of my list!  - LJ P.

 

I hired Diana to help me pick out paint and carpet for my new house. She did an outstanding job! She was so professional and so thorough! She came out for a consultation visit with a book of paint colors which we narrowed down to a few. Then after I had put some samples on the wall, she came back to see them in the light, and we then picked the right ones. She nailed it!! She also was so helpful in picking carpet - which can be so frustrating. I would recommend her to anyone, and have already given her name to several of my friends! She is great ! You will love her!!!
