Gardner & Associates, an allied ASID Member, was established on the Monterey peninsula in 1970 and specializes in interior design. Founded by Jan Gardner and now owned and led by her daughter, Julie, the firm became a harbinger of the Carmel/Monterey style. Our thirty-plus years of design work sets the benchmark for West Coast style as evidenced through our major projects such as the Lodge at Pebble Beach and Quail Lodge, in Carmel Valley, Spanish Bay Resort and The Cypress Inn, Carmel By the Sea. We’ve been able to translate this iconic style developed for our hospitality clients into warm and functional residential designs, as well.
The relevance and timelessness of our styling is also reflected in many prominent homes, not only within Pebble Beach, but nationwide. Residential highlights feature quality projects from 1,200 sq ft up to 10,000 sq. ft. Updating individual rooms such as bathrooms, and kitchens are not uncommon, as well.
Gardner & Associates continues to provide superior quality interiors producing extraordinary design in many different styles from traditional to contemporary. From ground-breaking projects, working along side world-class architects, to major remodels or downsizing, the design firm is fully adept at overseeing every aspect of a project.
We prefer sophisticated styles of lasting quality, textural fabrics, well-built furniture, and excellent lighting along with unique accessories. Most of the buying is done in San Francisco but we also travel to Los Angeles, New York, & Europe.
We excel in discovering new tradesmen, craftsmen, and artisans to perfect each final project. We also work with real estate agents to prepare and stage homes for resale.
Best of Houzz 2017, 2018, 2020 – Client Satisfaction
We are consistently rated at the highest level for client satisfaction by the Houzz community.
A chic home isn’t one that’s filled with uncomfortable furniture and art that you don’t understand. It’s a home filled with things that you love and that make you happy.
