The Studio

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

We work on single family homes, multi-family buildings, offices, retail spaces, and hospitality spaces (bars, cafes, restaurants). Our services include: concept creation, space planning, 2D and 3D rendering, kitchen design, bathroom design, furniture design, and art & accessory placement.

Our focus is on creating custom residential and commercial 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 furniture silhouettes. Our style is modern and warm. We start with understanding how our clients live and work, 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.
