Since launching her design business in 2002, Carol Emmons has designed beautiful home environments for her clients based on their own unique design style. Whether contemporary or traditional, each design is a collaboration between client and designer, and merges both the desired result with the individual budget. With attention to detail, and to obtaining the most value from the myriad of available choices in materials and fabrication, Carol is able to create a beautiful, yet functional, home environment.

Carol actually began her career as a certified public accountant with one of the largest accounting firms in the world, having graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Accounting and a Masters in Taxation.  In 2000, she decided to pursue her life long dream to design beautiful home environments and began studying the principles of award winning design. She obtained her certificate in design from the Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach, and continued with in depth studies of space planning, construction, color and textiles. She has completed projects throughout the Coachella Valley, including La Quinta, Indian Wells, Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert, as well as Newport Beach and Anaheim Hills in Orange County.  

Carol is an Associate with the INTERIOR DESIGN SOCIETY, one of the nation's largest design organizations dedicated to serving the residential interior design industry.



"Just a quick note to express my heartfelt thanks for all you do.  Not only do you excel in 'staging', which has helped in providing a quicker sale for my clients.....but your design expertise is phenomenal.  When it came to my own home remodel I thought of no one but you for the design of my kitchen and it is the crowning jewel of my home.  Your knowledge of construction, attention to detail, and superior email and telephone communication helped an overwhelming process become efficient and  pleasurable. It is not easy to deal with the demands for both husband and wife and you navigated it perfectly.  I will never hesitate in recommending you and do often."

"Our remodeled kitchen and family room is a dream come true thanks to your help and attention to detail. Your assistance in selecting countertops, cabinet colors, window coverings, furniture, light fixtures, wall color, and accessories was invaluable in creating  a comfortable place for our family to gather together.  Friends and family who see it for the first time since the remodel are amazed at the beautiful transformation.  We are so pleased with the end result."

"I made a quick trip down to the desert just before Thanksgiving last month.  When we walked into our house it was like seeing it for the first time.  Thank you so much for helping us make that house so beautiful!!! We are so proud to bring our friends and family there!"

"We never seemed to have time to finish our new home in the desert, so we hired Carol to help us.  The spaces Carol designed are truly stunning...she was able to see the big picture and make it happen.  As a business woman, she was able to run the project efficiently and dealt with all of the contractors. Now our home is a family friendly hub where everyone, including our Golden Retriever, feel the inspirational design."
