About Us

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it’s because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

Henry David Thoreau

We believe you should live in your house…not ours


A highly regarded interior designer with more than 10 years of experience crafting unique spaces for her clients, Rebecca’s love for expressing herself through interiors was noticed early when, at age 10, she decorated her bedroom with yellow polka dots and a hanging bed. Growing up with parents who lived all around the world, remodeling their homes as they went, Rebecca gained extensive hands on knowledge of construction giving her the perfect skill set to act as translator between her clients and the architects, contractors and trades that bring new life to space. Having spent the early part of her career in corporate accounting, her prevailing interest in all things design prompted her finally to switch gears and pursue a career in interior design; a great move that allows her to use both the creative and analytical side of her brain. The only interior designer with 10 years of experience in corporate accounting, Rebecca’s clients know their budget will receive the same attention to detail as their interiors.

Your Interior Should Reflect Your Lifestyle and Taste

Rebecca believes the spaces we inhabit have a strong impact on how we feel and what we’re saying about ourselves to those we invite in. She works with clients who have the same desire to inhabit interiors that reflect their lifestyles, interests and tastes. As an NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association) and Allied ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) member she keeps current on products, trends and building codes.

While she designs across many styles, always seeking to create spaces that reflect her clients, Rebecca excels at mixing California casual with a global influence. She challenges her clients to think outside the box and their current comfort zone, to be forward thinkers; allowing her to craft spaces that will stand the test of time.

Passionate About Our Community

Rebecca remains active in her community through her church’s outreach missions, as a board member of Bridge to Home serving the homeless community, and as a member of Soroptimist International, a women’s service organization dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls both locally and globally. She believes that educating women and girls, giving them the opportunity to live their dreams, will change not only their own lives, but ultimately the lives of their entire family.

Here’s What Our Client’s Say

"Rebecca transformed our once unused living and dining rooms into sophisticated, yet cozy entertaining spaces, which we actually USE now and thoroughly enjoy! The spaces she designed reflect our home's personality and are truly my favorite rooms to be in. She also designed a showstopper of a powder room, which is a fun surprise whenever someone sees it for the first time. She is wonderful to work with, as she listens to the client while she focuses on bringing the most of each room to "life" with her impeccable style and knowledge. I would highly recommend her and look forward to doing more projects with her in the future. MANY THANKS Rebecca!"

"Rebecca transformed my 13-year-old beautiful home into a brand new GORGEOUS home. Her personal attention, great taste and understanding my dreams and budget were all accomplished. I couldn't be happier! She is amazing!!!"

"I've worked with Rebecca on 2 projects; an upscale condo in West Hollywood and now a home in the Hollywood Hills. I chose Rebecca while perusing through Houzz for a designer that had a similar taste to mine. She did not disappoint. The condo was a full remodel with floors, walls, closets, fireplace, built in cabinetry and furnishings. It was not my intent, but a year later I sold the condo for almost twice what I paid for it. The new buyer also purchased most of my furniture. Rebecca is now working with me on my new home, which has more of a cottage style and once again, she is nailing it. She is cognizant of budget, which is also appreciated. On top of it all, she is great to work with. I don't like to shop, so opted to have her email pictures to me....it worked!! I'd highly recommend Rebecca without any hesitation."

"I found Rebecca on Houzz and asked her if she could make my house modern, inviting, stylish and fun. From our first discussions through to the finish I enjoyed watching her lead the efforts to transform my house from just being in the place I slept in, to a place I love calling my home. Her working style is truly collaborative, as she spent ample time making sure she fully understood my goals and got to know me so she could understand my taste. I never felt pressured to buy or spend on things that I didn't like, but instead was always surprised to see that the things she showed me really fit my personality. She transformed my bland entryway to a place that invites you to come in, redid my tiles to this amazing wood floor that modernized and reshaped the entire feeling of the house. The window treatments are a constant conversation starter that says we can be modern but still fun. The kitchen and dining room scream when's the next party and has the coolest lighting fixture. The new custom stairways are works of art and she turned what used to be a lagoon and mint colored master bedroom with a red colored master bathroom, to this elegant classy master bed and bath that looks like you're in a suite in the four seasons. Despite the numerous customizations, from the elaborate tile design of the master bathroom and shower, to the custom stairwell, she managed to co-ordinate with my contractor to meet our deadlines on a very big complete home remodel. She also accomplished all this while working with limitations I had given her regarding things she couldn't change. I had never worked with an interior designer prior to this experience, but after this, I know that if/when I move I'll be more than happy to make that phone call to Rebecca again so that she can do to my next home what she did for my current, which was make it my dream home."

"We had a local contractor working with us on a simple bedroom addition to our ranch house. When we started talking about updating the 1970s kitchen, he recommended we talk with Rebecca Johnston about options (he had worked with her previously). As it turned out, she was the best investment we made in the project. We were uncertain about how much we wanted to do, so she gave us three designs at different price points and worked us through the pros and cons of each. She saw alternatives we never would have come up with on our own, and then she wrote the specs so they made sense to our contractors. She has great local resources - the cabinet shop she recommended was superb - and she stayed on top of the project as it came together. She was infinitely patient and really listened to us and our needs. Our "style" is an eclectic mix of Japanese antiques, tribal art, and California ranch. She pulled it all together with a contemporary but not aggressively modern kitchen that is a joy to work in, both alone and with guests. Everything about the experience with her was delightful."
