Therese Carmel Interiors & Home is a boutique, full-service interior design firm located in the picturesque village of Rancho Santa Fe, California. 

It is a place where passion, creativity and a true sense of joie de vivre merge together to create unique and inspired interiors.

This mother-daughter duo, along with their talented team of craftsmen, interprets a client’s vision, lifestyle and dreams to create a home beyond their expectations.  “We approach each project with a fresh viewpoint, creating bespoke interiors that are both modern and timeless, effortlessly elegant.”

With exclusive offerings of custom designed furniture, unique textiles, antiques and one of a kind accessories, Therese Carmel brings a couture level of attention to all projects. From the overall vision to final installation, each step of the process is carefully managed to ensure the highest commitment to quality, detail and client service.

Having a design philosophy deeply rooted in art and architecture, Therese Carmel finds inspiration in the work of legendary Golden Era architects including George Washington Smith, Paul R. Williams and Edgar Ullrich. Taking into careful consideration a home’s scale, proportion and inherent beauty, rooms are then animated with élan –infused with inspired compositions of art, alluring textures, color, and unexpected accents. “It’s not uncommon for us to mix a chic sofa, Chinoiserie Lacquer Table, French ‘40’s Maison Jansen Chairs, contemporary artwork, and a statuesque fig tree in a vintage faux bois planter.”

When they aren’t obsessing over each design detail, scouring the world for the perfect antiques, or enjoying a cup of French Press coffee, the duo adores spending time by the ocean with their family and energetic dogs, Maxine and Burleigh.
