It was such a pleasure working with Francesca at Sentire Design. She designed our new master bathroom and fireplace and helped us pick out kitchen tiles plus interior and exterior paint colors. Francesca has great taste and an amazing attention to detail. She also was very patient with us when we had trouble making decisions or articulating our wishes, and she revised the bathroom design several times until we were completely happy with it. Most of all, she seemed to really care about our project. Highly recommended!
Francesca & Sentire Design were a dream to deal with. I had a very clear idea of what I wanted & she tirelessly took me from store to store until the perfect items were found. She helped take a very nondescript home & transformed it into something I am very proud to call my home. I would love to work with her again on a project.
Francesca helped us with the design and layout of our new 5 bedroom home in Pasadena. She was referred to us by a former colleague of hers. The project scope included layout of all rooms, paint and window treatments throughout house, and furniture/rug selections as needed. We also did some light construction and custom furniture pieces. The design was completed on time and within budget, and our house looks fantastic. we are very happy with our decision to work with Francesca.
We receive a lot of compliments on the colors and furniture selections that Francesca made. More importantly, everything works well for our family. Francesca struck the right balance between comfort, functionality, and elegance.
Her approach was very collaborative, and she spent time with our family and asked good questions. Furthermore, Francesca was extremely efficient which helped keep the cost of our projects down. She was also very responsive and flexible, and we feel that we got a lot of value for our money.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Francesca to a friend and we plan to work with her again. She delivered a great result for our family.
Francesca was fabulous. She helped me choose all the colors. Everyone that sees my house thinks that the color combinations are the best. I would highly recommend her. She is also very patient and serious about her work.
She gets an A plus from us.

I want to applaud Francesca’s sense of design. I had nice things in my family room without the sense of design I needed. Francesca made some simple choices of an area rug and placing pics and helped me with fabrics for couch and recovering a chair. Voila’…my family room has style. Thanks, a happy customer.
Mark M., Head Coach Beverly Hills High School Wrestling Team
The Beverly Hills High wrestling room has been in desperate need of renovation for years. But with a low budget for renovations and a coaching staff with anything but design sense, we've been at an impasse for years. We've talked about making improvements to the room for years, but we could never quite make them materialize. It was fortunate we didn't. Among our design schemes were all bright orange walls, orange mats, and black lettering. It sounded good when compared with the dull white walls, but we are very glad we had Francesca's help. With her assistance, we realized what we wanted from the room: simple design, not too flashy, but just stylish enough to be eye-catching but not overwhelming. She listened to our goals and helped us find appropriate paint, engaging lettering, and a mat that ties in all the fonts and colors. With a tight budget and zero professional help, her assistance with the X's and O's of picking colors, paint, and the multiple options for lettering made all the difference.Suffice it to say, anyone who sees the room is amazed by the upgrade.

Francesca of SentireDesign did a wonderful job of bringing a beautifully designed home to the clients who were new to the process. She was respectful of their budget, let them find their style, gently guiding them with her experience the whole time. As an art consultant brought in at the end of the process I appreciated how easy she made my part.

I have been working on a few projects with Francesca and my business partner and myself are extremely happy with her professionalism. Aside from being a really nice lady, she is incredibly attentive to the details and always was quick to respond to any and all questions or concerns we had along the way. She is a pleasure to work with and have a really great eye for design. Her renderings and drafts were incredibly impressive. I highly recommend Sentire Design, unconditionally, and we are looking forward to working with Francesca on future projects. Thank you!
Francesca was professional, efficient and a pleasure to work with. She listened to her client needs and came up with creative ideas the would not only be functional but also breathtaking. Francesca designed both a mantle and shelf using different antique carved beams and the end design was beautiful.
She was highly professional and made the process easier thanks to her many drawings, sketches and clear instructions.

It was a pleasure to collaborate with Francesca at Sentire Design!
She is very knowledgeable, efficient and has a broad sense of the varying aesthetic concepts out there today.
Incorporating the Natural edged, solid walnut desk in her clients home looked great!
Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again.
