The Studio

SVK Interior Design is a commercial and residential design studio founded in 2010 and based in San Francisco, CA.

We work on:

Bars, Cafes, Restaurants
Boutique Hotels
Permanent and Pop Up Retail Spaces
Single Family Homes
Multi-Family Buildings

Our focus is on creating custom commercial and residential spaces that are personal, beautiful, and highly functional. We enjoy working on a variety of architectural styles and landscapes from the city to the country.

Our approach is rooted in classic design principles, thoughtful space planning, and timeless built in and free standing silhouettes. Our style is modern and warm. We start with understanding how our clients work and live, and how that can best be integrated into the architecture of the space in a seamless way.

Our process is built on organization and communication. We believe that taking the time to select and invest in quality materials and objects for your project is life changing. Do it once, do it right, and then enjoy it.
