Occidental Craftsman

Burlingame, California

a family of four was moving from a small 3 bedroom,
1 bathroom home in San Mateo to a much larger
4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home in Burlingame

the project was a blank slate except for a chesterfield sofa

we captured the essence of modern, ecclectic
with a light grey/ivory palette alongside
a mix of retail, custom & vintage items

new furniture &
paint throughout the entire home

upholster pieces
in living room,
dining room &
family room
designer wallpaper covering in entry
& half bath

I had the pleasure to work with Samie

when I moved into a new home and needed help with the interior design. I pretty much needed everything. Samie has excellent taste and was very knowledgeable, patient, and considerate of budget. I was very overwhelmed at the beginning and Samie did an excellent job guiding me through the process. We tackled paint colors, walpaper, fabric selection and lots of furniture selection. It turned out to be fun and easy. I love how our home turned out and would definitely hire Tip Top Designs again!
