Louise Medrano

Louise developed her design background through the Interior Designers Institute and Ethan Allen Workshops. Through her retail store management experience, she designed vignettes and worked on design projects for special clients. She enjoys working on floor plans and presenting design concepts to clients. Her interests include fine art and jewelry design. Recently, she designed her home lighting fixtures incorporating brass, capiz shells, and crystals, and had them manufactured in the Philippines.


I believe in incorporating a client's input to infuse each project with a client's personal taste and style. I enjoy providing ideas and introducing concepts to clients, creating layouts that are elegant, warm, and inviting.
