Senalee did a wonderful job helping us redecorate our condo. My husband and I wanted a cozy, uncluttered space that was still “us” and within budget. Senalee knocked it out of the park. She made great floor plans, came up with a common theme for each room (living, master bedroom, etc), and effortlessly worked around existing art and specific furniture pieces that we wanted to keep. She listened to what we wanted and delivered. A word of advice: every time my husband questioned her selections or proposed an alternative, Senalee’s choices always proved to be optimal. All in all a fantastic experience.

Senalee has an eye! She can rearrange a room in moments to get a completely new look. She has done it for me through several moves. I have not needed a remodel yet but would clearly use her to do that as well!

Senalee was a huge help in drafting plans for our kitchen and half bath remodel. This was our first time remodeling our condo or dealing with the city, so Senalee walked us through step by step explaining the process and what was permissible from a city code perspective. To top it off, she gave us creative advice on how to maximize our space, flow and what and where to shop for stone, cabinets and appliances. She is super resourceful, honest and has a great read on her clients taste and end vision. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to remodel their space!
Senalee was totally amazing and we absolutely would not have completed our beautiful house without her! She was well-organized and extremely responsive. We often didn’t know where to start, or weren’t sure what we liked or didn’t like which she was able to roll with. She brought all kinds of ideas and genres to our attention and then would narrow her search based on our reactions. She had wonderful ideas but never overpowered our own or did things ‘her way’ but let us explore and come up with things that were both elegant but personal. Even though our house is complete we still email her from time to time for advice about little touch ups or color ideas. She was irreplaceable!
Senalee keeps things simple, which is important for non creative/designer type like me. She provided me color and structural design consultation for a cottage unit on our property. Her color choices were right on point and worked out beautifully. Although we aren’t implementing the structural design changes immediately it is definitely up for consideration when we decide to renovate. Overall working with SVK was an easy and calm experience and I would encourage her to anyone looking for design help.

Up until about a month ago, I had a studio apartment which resembled the living space of “Girl Interrupted.” Think dingy white walls, harsh fluorescent lighting and you start to get the idea. All that was missing were the padded walls. Unfortunately for me, I hear that in 2013 psych ward chic isn’t really very in so I tried to make some changes on my own. I felt frustrated by the amount of time I was spending running from store to store and never really knowing what I was looking for. I decided to get some help and I found Senalee through yelp. I contacted her originally just for help with paint colors, but ended up being so impressed by her design knowledge and ideas for the space that I asked her to help me with the whole place. She took into account my budget and my general style and then came back with a couple of different concepts. She was right on and within budget. I now have a finished studio apartment that has truly been transformed into a comfortable oasis that I love coming home to. I cannot recommend Senalee highly enough.

Senalee prepared the plans and designed a kitchen and bathroom remodel in our new home. Not only were the designs beautiful–the kitchen and bath are both exquisite–but Senalee gave us great advice on price points, materials/products, and contractors. She was easy to get a hold of and completely invested in our project. We highly recommend her!

Senalee helped us choose colors for our office suite. She was cheerful, adaptable, and infinitely patient with our different tastes and different paces. The place looks great!
Senalee at SVK Interior Design was exactly who we needed for our bathroom remodel. We had a rough idea of what we wanted our bathroom to look like and which fixtures we wanted to use but our contractor recommended that we hire a designer to create professional design documents for them to use and to submit for permits. We hired Senalee based on her reviews here and how organized and responsive she was when we first contacted her. Senalee listened to our proposed design, answered all of our questions and provided excellent suggestions for pulling it all together. She researched complimentary materials to what we already wanted and provided multiple design ideas for us to choose between. She brought us samples and helped explain which would go well together. She also knows all the important details of what city and state regulations require. When we were done, Senalee produced complete design documents and delivered them directly to our contractor. A great experience and I highly recommend her for any remodeling or interior design.
Senalee is the best! She is super organized, has great taste, is cost-conscious (both with her time and the products she chooses), is flexible around our schedules, and very much added value for the minor renovations we did prior to furnishing and decorating our place. We are so happy living here… it is a treat to come home every day. We started with a blank canvas in a new condo and with only a few pieces of furniture. Senalee worked around our schedules and the schedules of the family living in the condo before we took possession. She started by creating floor plans, conceptual furniture layouts and mood boards that were all presented in a highly organized and easy to follow fashion. She helped my wife and me to come to conclusions on styles and pieces despite our different tastes. We picked furniture, rugs, wood floor stains, paint colors, window coverings, lighting, etc, etc and it all came together perfectly. I was totally overwhelmed by the thought of having to decorate and furnish our place, but Senalee made it all happen seamlessly, on budget, on time and with great style. We love being here and can’t thank Senalee enough for her help!

Senalee is amazing and has changed my family’s life! We are addicted to her. First, she helped us design and remodel a bathroom: before, it looked like a plastic nightmare from an 80’s porno; now it looks like a blue and white robin’s egg dream – smooth, crisp, clean, and super functional. Next, Senalee designed and oversaw the remodeling of a kitchen in a parent’s house: the house had not been updated since the 1960’s but is one of those beautiful 1920’s Spanish style San Francisco homes. Senalee, with her keen eye, was able to design a completely new plan for the kitchen while keeping it in line with the original charm of the house. There were many different family members involved in the project, and Senalee worked not only as a designer, but also as a family therapist, contractor overseer, and general horse whisperer. The kitchen makes so much sense and is streamlined and gorgeous. Finally, we decided to gut rehab our entire house (minus the beautiful bathroom), and Senalee has been an incredible resource who helped us interview and choose an architect, brought together different ideas into a unique design plan, connected us with an excellent appliance salesperson, talked down the angry neighbor who was upset by the noise made by the foundation workers, kept our ideas from getting too crazy, found an artisanal cabinet maker, kept us calm when we freaked out, stayed mindful of cost, all with a smile and a great attitude. We really can’t recommend Senalee highly enough!

SVK is everything you want in an interior designer. 1. Expertly applies her design expertise: Senalee has walked us through concepts like space planning and lighting, and the amount of knowledge she has is astounding. It really opened our eyes to how important these elements are, and made us confident in her expertise. She also has a gift for visualizing what’s possible. It’s clear that she knows what she’s doing. 2. Listening to your ideas and concerns. Whether you have thoughts/concerns about budget, color palette, furniture sizing, overall look, incorporating unique elements, or anything else, Senalee really listens and addresses each of your thoughts. She’ll be open and honest about what should be done and why, and incorporate your ideas as appropriate, or tell you why another idea will be better. And she’s always right. 3. Patient and provides explanations: She’s rational, reasonable, and flexible. Also, My S.O. and I ask A LOT of questions. We like to know exactly what’s going on and what is worth spending more money on, and what is not. Senalee explained everything, and provides additional information and context where necessary. I noticed that my S.O. will ask the same exact questions I did just a few minutes later (if she wasn’t listening the first time), and Senalee will patiently answer again. 4. Organized and efficient: She made a binder for us, and after meetings she will send follow up emails as necessary, which is very useful (especially when I realize that I was so caught up in listening to what she had to say that I didn’t write anything down). She is also process-oriented, which is not always a skill that creative people have. 5. Passionate: She loves her work, and it shows in the product she delivers to you. I would recommend SVK Interior Design to everyone!

We met Senalee as residents of the California, Bay Area. While we are building a second home in the Teton Valley of Idaho, there was only one designer for the job. Senalee’s exceptional taste and design aesthetic matched our vision for the kind of modern mountain dream home we want to build! SVK is managing our finish and plumbing selections to meet our vision and budget. The team created a fantastic presentation of our selections to share with our architect and contractor. Senalee is a phenomenal communicator, a vital asset in build long-distance build. We will continue to partner with SVK through the build into interior design. We are thrilled with this company, it’s principal designer, and our results this far. Very excited for the final product!
When we reached out to Senalee, we had no experience with remodels and had never worked with a contractor or taken on a project like what we wanted to do with our kitchen and master bathroom. Senalee exceeded all of our expectations and helped us get to an end result that we really love. She was professional, highly organized, and totally responsive to what we wanted and the budget we wanted to aim for. Unlike some other designers we spoke with, Senalee has the full skill set: she can do the technical drawings, she knows the logistics and sausage making of how to work with a general contractor effectively, and of course she has a great eye for design and the cosmetic touches that could translate our taste into reality. If you’re considering a remodel project, we’d highly recommend her and her team!
I worked with Senalee on two different projects. She is professional, knowledgeable, STYLISH, and has a winning personality to boot. Senalee first helped me with a bathroom remodel. She broke down the pricing in a precise manner and gave me a number of design options within my range. Senalee provides excellent customer service by going above and beyond what is required of her. She clearly enjoys her work, and her customers benefit from her apparent passion and expertise. Senalee was my first call when I needed a color consultant for the interior walls of my house. Again, she treated the job, despite the smaller nature of the project, with the utmost professional courtesy and attention to detail. It is a refreshing delight to know someone in the home-improvement arena who actually takes pride in their work and is not out to charge exorbitant prices just because they do business in San Francisco. I will definitely use SVK for my future design needs.
Senalee is spectacular in every way. From the moment she meets with you, black boards in tow to storyboard her visions for your home, to the incredible result you get, she is your advocate and partner in your project. Our home went from a standard remodel to a work of great contemporary design, at a total cost which is probably less expensive than had we shopped for everything ourselves online. Senalee has access to all kinds of vendors at super competitive prices, and will go pick everything out for you so you quality material. Her rates are downright reasonable and she doesn’t nickel and dime. We felt like we were her no. 1 clients and I’m sure that’s true for everyone she works with. Sen worked great with our contractor and the whole process was seamless. I am sure she is on her way to being one of the top designers in the city so work with her while you can.

Where do I start?! My husband and I are such huge, huge Senalee fans! She has been instrumental in helping us decorate our house from our bedroom to nursery to dining room and living room! She has an impeccable eye, and yet is also super practical and budget conscious. She does an incredible job combining reasonable basics with eye catching, special pieces. Her knowledge of what is out there and what will work in a space is impressive!! We have been so grateful for her talent in spatial planning and ability to think outside the box. She has also been able to be a tie breaker when needed between me and my husband because we both trust her implicitly. Our house is full of her touches and thoughtfulness, and it is absolutely gorgeous, unique and still very “us”. At this point, I would not undertake a design project without her help.

SVK was great. We had a limited budget and Senalee presented us with a number of options for our kitchen remodel that were within our financial range. She explained color schemes and choice of materials simply so that we could understand and visualize the concept. Our kitchen turned out great.
