SAN FRANCISCO, MISSION DOLORES
Gina is organized, creative, curious, friendly, and really listens to my needs and preferences. She considers both function and form. I never feel like she’s pushing her taste or aesthetic on me - she finds out what I like and makes it work. She is equally comfortable running the show and making all the decisions or checking in with me, depending on my preference. I was renting an apartment with my best friend for a long time and we got sick of treating it like a temporary space, so we asked Gina to help us beautify it on a tight budget (we didn’t own it, so why invest?). She got creative with budget - using dramatic painting and small accents (bling) to make it beautiful. She worked with contractors to completely transform our bathroom from a drab utilitarian space to one I felt happy to be in. She styled and painted the rest of the house and sourced a few small items to make it more comfortable and beautiful. This was perfect for us as renters - one fully redesigned room and a once over of the rest of the house.
