Austin Hong and Stefanie Navarra bring together a unique blend of very distinctive, yet complementary artistry. Individually, their styles run the gamut and allow them to achieve dramatically different results. Together, the partnership creates a synergy that helps them successfully tackle a wide spectrum of projects, many of which have been featured in San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyle magazine.
Stefanie has been in the design industry for over ten years. Born into a family of architects and artists, Stefanie always knew she was destined to be a designer. She has been immersed in home design and creativity since childhood, which helped to cultivate her passion for the art of interior design. She is no stranger to transforming high-end homes or styling commercials or photo shoots. Having had experience as a buyer for a major furniture retailer, she has established many connections in the furniture, accessories, architecture, and contracting community and is able to pull these resources together to effectively execute her designs and deliver the most beautifully customized creations for her clients.
Austin’s body of work ranges from restaurants to large multi-million-dollar estates to condos in urban areas. Whatever the style, Austin prides himself in highlighting the client’s unique taste while still adding his personal signature to the space. He believes that the key to a successful design is consistency and harmony, regardless of the genre, era, or theme. Thus, his distinctive touch is not indicative of a specific set of colors, patterns, or cultural influences, but rather the manner in which these elements all interact and blend with one another. A space can evoke many emotions and Austin never loses sight of this while making a home a sanctuary to the owner or ensuring a restaurant is welcoming to all guests, whether it means creating comfortably bold compositions, satisfyingly joyful color palettes, or even incorporating elements of Feng Shui.
