Kriste Judd has been an interior designer on the Central Coast of California since 1978. Having completed a wide variety of residential and commercial projects over the years, she is known for her easygoing demeanor and attention to detail.

The design process always begins with getting to know the vision and needs of the home or business owner. From working with the architect or builder on preliminary plans to providing detailed floor plans and specification documents as needed, the final product is always a tasteful, functional and comfortable reflection of the client.

Graduating in Interior Design from Cal Poly SLO in 1978, she went to work for Interiors by Amanda in Arroyo Grande before starting Howard and Judd Interior Design with Pat Howard in 1981. The team became one of the premier design firms in the area known for their innovative design solutions. In 1998 Pat and Kriste dissolved the partnership to pursue their own plans but remain good friends to this day. As a Certified Interior Designer in the State of California since 1994, Kriste continues to provide creative, personal and professional interior design services.

Testimonial for Kriste Judd:

Over the last fifteen years Kriste has provided my building company with exceptional service. We have collaborated on nearly twenty homes over the years...all with a success beyond my clients, and my own expectations. She has always prevailed with understated style, consistency in theme and a dedication to nuance. She has incredible versatility and has seamlessly provided Tuscan, Spanish revival, cottage, contemporary and postmodern themes in respective homes. She has an incredible ability to choose building specs such as tile, flooring, paint, hardware and cabinetry.... as well as a dead on knack for furniture, fabric, and the small touches that bring a design to fruition.

I have had the pleasure to work with Kriste directly and collaboratively with clients; I have been impressed with her sensitivity to pricing, value and the absolute ability to work with everyone. Unlike other designers she displays no predilection toward a favorite style nor does she bring ego or temperament. Kriste always seem to get what we are going after "the first time" saving money and time, and doing it in such a pleasant, and yes, fun, way! 

In short I would recommend her service to anyone who has a desire for excellence and value. I look forward to many more projects to come.
