Rachel Mathai, Allied ASID
Rachel’s passion for design started with rearranging her family’s furniture and by the time she was in high school she designed and remodeled a bathroom in their house. She is a graduate of the Cilker School of Art and Design at West Valley College. Rachel loves how small changes can often make a huge impact, and enjoys reworking a floorpan to best suit the client. She prides herself on knowing the latest design trends but keeps it classy by creating designs that are meaningful to the homeowner and will last for years to come. Her goal is to create designs that are meaningful.
Amanda started her interior design career by creating customized homes for each of her Barbies. After earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design, she worked for over a decade in California’s Silicon Valley designing corporate interiors, hotels, restaurants, and residential interiors. She has joined DesignFix remotely from Colorado and loves designing both interiors and patios, as she is a master gardener for the State of Colorado. Amanda’s design philosophy is that our homes and outdoor spaces should be places to both live and recharge, while maintaining function and beauty.
Veena is our operations assistant extraordinaire! She touches all aspects of the DesignFix business from answering the phones, maintaining the calender, and following up with clients, projects, and deliveries. She went De Anza College and from there went on to administrative work in the medical field. With a love of interior design, Veena decided to use her skills and work for DesignFix. Fun fact: Veena speaks fluent Hindi and Thai!
We believe in…
Many people are concerned about hidden costs and upcharges when working with design professionals. We are committed to transparency, and have no hidden fees, transactions, or agenda. We charge only for our time, and share our trade discounts with you. That’s it.
When you hire DesignFix, you are hiring creative, committed, experienced, and practical designers to think hard about your specific needs in your personal space. Quality design & execution takes time and we don’t take shortcuts. Before we start, we give you an estimate of how much time we think your project will take so you know what to expect.
The DesignFix process is unique, and was developed over time to meet the unique needs of our Silicon Valley clients. However, it is a little different from what some of our clients expect. We have found that the more we (and our clients) respect the process, the more fun we all have, and the more pleased everyone is with the outcome.
We listen carefully to your functional needs, style and color preferences, and budget concerns. When our process is complete, your room should feel complete. The details that come together in the last hours of the project are a critical part of the design. We will not be satisfied until we have fluffed all the pillows.
