"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"

"We had a wonderful experience working with 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 deadlines.
• 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!)
• Easy to get a hold of and quick to respond to our questions. Our overall feedback for Amparo was very positive and highly recommend her for any type of remodel job you might have!" —Leila and Brandon.

"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"... Angela
"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".  — Jennifer M Blackhawk, CA.

“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.” — Elaine H.
