I hired Kirsten Pike Design, upon recommendation by the concierge at The Harrison, to completely design and furnish my 30th story apartment overlooking San Francisco as well as San Francisco Bay. Kirsten was involved with every single, minute detail of the design and execution of her incredible vision for my home. She has a perfect balance between being a collaborator and yet be completely in charge…taking all stress away from the property owner. Earlier than mid project, I gave her carte blanche. She knew what I wanted and I trusted her know how 100%: Impeccable taste and finesse...Brilliant even. What a talent! Early in the project, I moved in. I travel a lot and we arranged for her to do the work when I was gone. Everything is now a cohesive whole so the living spaces, kitchen and bathrooms flow together. Amongst so many things, she designed a stunning wall of decorative plaster and a bar that is as lovely as it is practical. My space is a jewel box where nothing is left to coincide. Also every delivery was overseen and the small practicalities that a homeowner doesn't want to deal with before, during and after a remodel. When I wasn't pleased with my high end flower delivery service, Kirsten did it personally and once again blew my away. I am just sad that when I come home from my travels there isn’t a new “surprise” waiting for me, as the apartment is perfect! I think any discerning person with high expectations will be very happy with Kirsten Pike Design.
Kirsten Pike Design was recommend to my by Jenn Davis at Compass when I bought my condo at The Harrison in San Francisco. I chose Kirsten's company after interviewing several other recommended designers. All the decor is done by her. I didn't bring anything from my old house. I didn't live there for the duration of the project. Everything was in move in condition when I moved in. The kitchen and bathrooms were fully equipped. The budget was expertly balanced. I wanted a very modern, clean, gallery like interior with touches of eclecticism. Each piece of furniture should stand out like a sculpture and compliment the views of the cityscape and San Francisco bay. I anticipated getting married soon and wanted an interior that wasn't overly masculine but had some feminine touches so Kirsten incorporated white to soften and inviting textures and shapes. I recommend Kirsten Pike Design wholeheartedly.
Kirsten Pike Design was warmly recommended to me and I'm very pleased that I had her do my entire condo. She renovated the kitchen, other partial renovations like the fireplace, master closet and did all the decor and all the home improvements with ease and finesse.
Dozen upon dozen of pieces were purchased (also a couple of custom pieces designed by Kirsten Pike), murals were painted on 3 walls, a 28 foot long hallway's walls were clad in wood. All was finished prior to the deadline I had given her. She arranged for all the deliveries. I never felt inconvenienced and although I lived on site for most of the duration of the project, I was blissfully unaware of everything that was going on. She juggled the budget for my home beautifully and got the most out of it possible!
The guidelines I gave her was to create a home that was modern and masculine but also rustic and with a modern cowboy slant. I grew up on a CA ranch in part and wanted to bring my history and some of CA history into my SF condo. I wanted it to be a reflection of my past but I also wanted it to be a reflection of the person I am today and she nailed it!

Kirsten Pike of Kirsten Pike Design designed our entire home that we had just purchased. We were not able to bring any of our previous furniture and accessories because we purchased a smaller home. Kirsten procured all new furnishings and accessories, and reframed our art collection to make it work with the new, modern interior.
Kirsten not only captured the essence of the house and the modern but comfortable light feeling and palette that we wanted but she also captured the essence of us: How we live, what we like, how we see our lives and ourselves in this house. She took us on a journey in the world of design where she became our guide and teacher.
Our home is lovely, personable and just beautiful. Her murals are one of our favorite highlights of the house ~ just fantastic. Finally, she arranged all workings for the house and deliveries etc and it made it easy and fluent so that we could focus on our lives and work while everything concerning the house was taken care of. I recommend her highly ~ I only wish we had another home for her to furnish & design!!

Kirsten worked on every inch of the interior of our new townhouse in downtown Mill Valley and it has been a fantastic experience from start to finish. She is extremely responsive and easy to work with. Kirsten has unique and innovative ideas and loves finding one-of-a-kind pieces for her clients. She is more than a designer - she is a true artist. She custom designed a 8' H X 5.5' W painting for us that would definitely have the admiration of all of Mill Valley and she designed 4 murals in our house, one of them nearly 20' tall.
Several pieces of furniture in our home are designed by her. In one room, every pieces of furniture including a bunkbed, desk and wood clad walls in intricate patterns are Kirsten's own design. We wanted a modern French feel to our home because of our affiliations there. Growing up in Europe and having travelled all over, Kirsten was the perfect designer to carry that out. She orchestrated the coming and going of faux finishers, people who implemented her design for the front door, painters, carpenters, electricians, drape and roman shade installers, closet installers, wall paper hangers, installers and fabricators of her furniture designs, and all the dozens upon dozens of individual pieces from all over the world that she brought into our home and had delivered. She tailored the home to us. We couldn't recommend her more highly!

My wife and I hired Kirsten Pike to redecorate most rooms in our house. She focused on our living and family room. And we have just began our newest project, the kitchen. She not only has a warm and inviting personality but exudes such passion about the projects that she works on. Kirsten is a visionary, displaying creativity and talent. She tied the rooms together for a cohesive sophisticated look. The result of her efforts is a stunning, successful design that we are proud to call home.
