"I contacted Amparo to do the
design for an extension to my house in Palo Alto.
From the very first meeting, I had a
meeting-of-the-minds as she is a very patient
listener who takes the information from her
clients and seeks to support them in successful
completion of the project. Her pricing model was
very reasonable. Her design style is very practical,
with balance of elegance and project cost.
She kept the schedule that she promised to me.
In certain case, I needed some changes rather
hurriedly and she fully supported me.
I maintained contact with her and often sought
advice from her in areas of construction other
than design, and was very impressed with the
support that I received from her. It is a
delight to see the pride that she takes in her
work for she rightly deserves it." — Dr. Ashok Kapoor, Phd.

"Working with Amparo was a pleasure
from start to finish. Amparo listened carefully
to our needs, and came up with a wonderful design.
She followed through on all the aspects of
permitting the project with the structural
engineer and working with the contractor’s
bidding process. Amparo always kept the budget
in mind throughout the project, choosing the
best materials and finishes with our budget.
She thought of several things to keep costs down,
which we would not have known. Amparo is a
professional who knows how to meet her client’s
needs, and she is a joy to work with on
remodeling design, project management and
landscape design. I can’t say enough nice
things about working with Amparo, as she made
our lives so much easier. Her ideas were so
good, that we changed very little of her
original design and choice of materials.
We were completely happy to have Amparo on
this project, and I will use her services
again! —Julie Avary"

Amparo. She helped us redesign two bathrooms,
kitchen, laundry room, and along with other misc
house modifications. In addition to the designs,
we also hired her to create plans for obtaining
construction permits in the city of Burlingame.
Here is our feedback:
• Great eye for picking out product that fit our
overall remodel vision.
• Produced accurate plans of our house.
• Responsive to our feedback.
• Patient with our
• Fun personality and easy to get along with
• Provided quick turnaround of revised plans to
clear Burlingame comments (kudos to Amparo for a
job well done!)

to respond to our questions. Our overall feedback for
Amparo was very positive and highly recommend her for

"Thanks so much for sticking with it through all the
changes. We appreciate all your expertise. Everyone
who sees it is amazed at the transformation.
One friend said, "Serious Bathroom Envy"...
"We've just finished the planning process
with the direction & assistance of Amparo.
We found her to be very knowledgeable,
informative & extremely considerate of
our needs and wants. Amparo was very
willing to adapt & adjust as we asked and
many times we actually realized why we
hired here in the first place - to help,
assist & direct in areas of design &
materials that we were unfamiliar with.
Overall, we are very happy with our experience
and feel like we have definitely been in good
hands with Amparo". — Frank

"I met Amparo a couple of years ago when I needed a website re-design
for my skin care salon, Avalon Face and Body Center. The first thing
that I noticed about her was that her work ethic was superb.
She didn't stop until I was 100% satisfied. She also listened to what my
ideas and desires were. When my website was redesigned, I was so
proud to show it off!!! She is an incredible designer and artist.
When I decided that it was time to remodel my master bathroom,
I contacted Amparo to do the design. From my previous positive
experience with her, I knew I could trust her work completely. She
asked what my inspiration was and I told her I wanted to
feel like I was walking into my own spa. With that concept in mind,
she helped me create the look and feel of my own private spa.
During the project, she was hands on from start to finish.
She did all the designs, helped me pick out all the supplies
and she was there during the whole construction project
consulting with the GC. Whenever I needed her,
she was there to answer questions and give feedback in a
professional and timely fashion.
I love my new bathroom and I would highly recommend her to
anyone who has a website or interior design project".

“Amparo designed my kitchen and my bathroom.
I love both rooms. I tell everyone that
I could not have done it without her and it is
true! Both rooms are small and so it was a
challenge to find materials that fit and did
not create cramped spaces. There was no room for
mistakes and Amparo did not make any mistakes.
She sees the best solution to any design problem
immediately; it is not a process of trial and
error with her. She also knows all about the
best materials at the best prices, and where to
acquire them. She is very easy to work with,
listens intently to my preferences and honors them.
She helped me communicate with the contractor
in order to reach a higher level of quality in the
workmanship. I highly recommend her services.”
