Central Coast of California-based interior designer, Ariana Afshar Lovato, has always had a spark for design and all things creative. With an Associate’s Degree in Interior Design from Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (F.I.D.M.) as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of LaVerne, Ariana possesses a strong understanding of design and culture to create spaces based on her clients’ passions and inspirations.

Upon graduation, she began her career with an internship for a successful local Interior Designer, where she went on to earn a spot as an Assistant Designer, managing large scale projects on her own.

She then went on to gain more than five years of experience working for a Design/Build Firm, in Product Design and Development, and even online Interior Design before deciding to go out on her own.
