San Francisco based interior designer, Kristi Witt, brings insight, experience and optimism to every project. Listening to her clients, understanding their desires and how they relate to their home, she offers options on how to achieve goals; creating comfortable, beautiful spaces that work, inspire and reflect personality.
An eye for detail, knack for discovering great finds and passion for maximizing space led Kristi to planning interiors. After relocating to San Francisco with her husband in the fall of 2008, she has had the pleasure of working with dozens of clients in the Bay Area, and on projects in Portland, Baja and Hawaii. Whether she is consulting on a kitchen renovation, an eco-retreat in Belize or preparing a home for the real estate market, Kristi understands the need to coax value out of every space in ways that surprise and delight her clients while still keeping an eye on the budget.
Educated in fine art and graphic design, Kristi spent her youth traveling, supporting herself by working in the restaurant industry and finding outlets for her artistic bent and entrepreneurial spirit. From touring Europe in an all-girl Memphis band to importing silver and textile art from Guatemala and Mexico, Kristi has gained a variety of life experience which informs her work today. She is a published singer and songwriter, has operated her own home staging business, worked as a realtor, in film production and set styling, and has spent many successful years as a private chef, caterer and event planner. In her spare time, she can be found “dutifully researching” area wineries with her husband and friends, cooking up fresh local ingredients, or walking their dog, Violet, a 3 year old rescue.
Sharing her enthusiasm for great design, Kristi contributes to various publications and has appeared as guest designer and lifestyle contributor for local television programs Home with Lisa Quinn and View from the Bay.
Kristi is a member of the San Francisco Design Center and networks with other talented building and design professionals in the Bay Area. She is ready to guide you through your next project and help you create your perfect space.
