About Kristine Schultz

Kristine Schultz has been an interior designer for 31 years. She is a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and is certified in the state of California. She has a degree in art education with a concentration in painting and color mixing. She opened her own design business in 1992 when her family purchased Patios Plus, and remains very "hands on" in both businesses.

Opening her own design firm gave Kristine the opportunity to select the projects that most interest her. She believes a designer is responsible for creating an interior that is aesthetically pleasing, yet fulfills its function flawlessly. Her design style is transitional. After many years in the business, she can design a home to meet the taste and needs of whatever the client desires. Her sense of scale and creativity, and experience provides the foundation for her to design homes that are comfortable, inviting, yet easily maintained. She believes the design must be a statement and reflection of her client. All aspects are carefully considered as she creates a warm and inviting interior that can function for both entertaining and living. Each project offers its own challenges and opportunities. "It is our job to interpret our client's wishes and turn them into reality." Simplicity in design, architectural details, and a warm minimalism has evolved over time and are signature elements of her work.

Kristine also has an extensive background in designing custom furniture and cabinetry for her clients. "Beautiful woods inspire us to design furniture that is unique to each of our client's homes." Kristine's firm works in all aspects of interior design, including remodeling and decorating existing homes, and full service from start to finish with new homes. Her commitment is to you and to making the design experience your own.
