Zinnia Design Studio is a boutique design studio on purpose. We always want to remain able to consistently deliver exceptional personalized service to every one of our clients.
We specialize in creating contemporary yet timeless spaces that feel both aspirational and relatable. We push boundaries yet honor the classics. We deliver what you want and what you need.
Above all, we take great care to craft a collaboration with each client that is individualized. We truly value clear communication, deep creativity and collaboration, integrity, respect and innovation. These values define who we are and inform how we work.
We think design is an intimate and collaborative process. The best results are born from a great awareness of both the aspirational preferences and functional space needs of our clients. A space must perform both visually and practically the way you in which you need.
We strive for a seamless business process because we have taken the time to understand you and these needs before significant and costly choices must be made and purchased.
Our aim is to create inspiring spaces that:
echo your personal style
infuse your days with joy and comfort
make your life easier
When you partner with Zinnia Design Studio, you become more than a client; you are the inspiration and the heartbeat of our creative process. Every nuance of your project is intricately curated around your lifestyle and preferences.
We strive to make your home where you would rather be.
Her design choices are always on point.
She is unparalled in her creative flare.
This, coupled with her ability to cultivate spaces so they are not just beautiful, but also warm and welcoming. Patricia was also kind enough to share ideas with me about staging other properties that I represented that were truly transformative. I would be remiss to not also mention what a delight she is as a person; she is an amazing collaborator, listener and honestly just an incredibly kind, wonderful person. I can't recommend her enough!”

My Design Philosophy
"I strive to create spaces that are the ideal blend of aspirational meets relatable. Luxury and affordability can beautifully coexist and tastefully be interwoven with one another.
There is plenty of room for both the humble charm of an Ikea bed in a kid's room and a regal, custom armchair that is tucked into a cozy corner of a living room.
Defy convention, dare to blend! It's not just about mixing; it's about creating contrast, surprise and carefully curating a reflection of YOU.
It's not just design – it's art, it's real life. Your life"
True luxury is elevated,
yet quiet, comfort.
