CAROL FINAL

Carol Lindorfer

Interior Designer, Allied ASID

Carol is a San Francisco/Bay Area native and can’t imagine calling anywhere else home.  She graduated from San Francisco State University with a B.A. in Liberal Studies and completed a program in Interior Design at Canada College in Redwood City.  She is currently working on completing a certificate in Kitchen and Bath Design.

Her love for Interior Design grew from growing up with a family owned Structural Engineering Firm.   Carol likes to think of herself as a design “guide”.  “My objective is the help people create spaces that are a reflection of what they are passionate about.”  Helping a client realize their own style by discovering what holds meaning and beauty to them is what drives her love of design.  Whether incorporating treasured family heirlooms with more contemporary pieces or creating an entirely new space from the beginning, the objective is the same, to design in partnership with the client to create a space that is uniquely them.
