Jesse DeSanti, CID, Creative Director/Owner
With nearly two decades in creative design, Jesse has long cultivated and nurtured her passion for architecture and interiors. The Southern California native began her career as an apprentice to Jessica Helgerson in Santa Barbara at just 17-years-old, before earning a BFA in Interior Architecture from Long Beach State University. Her comprehensive portfolio showcases her work with some of the world’s most renowned architects, artists and designers, including Cliff May, Richard Neutra, John Lautner, and William Werster.
Jesse has a soft spot for historic buildings—currently calling an historically registered Ole Hanson home—and is committed to respecting the integrity of each property in her care. Raised the daughter of an architect/builder/artist, Jesse is devoted to finding a creative balance to both honor the design of a structure, as well as developing a space that meets the needs and wishes of each client. Her services extend, to hear her tell, “from ground up structural design to selecting throw pillows.” As a designer, she’s devoted to seeing the process through to completion alongside her clients.
“A person’s home is a reflection of themselves, and it’s my responsibility to guide clients into creating a space that works for their needs and represents them as a person or as a family. But oftentimes a house has a history before each new owner and that should be considered. Understanding the intent of the architecture allows me to create a space that is a livable collaboration between past and present. My hope is to find a harmonious balance that satisfies all those components while moving the client and their home into the next chapter.”
Jesse is a student of history and an avid traveler; she finds inspiration and influence in both new and old world ideologies and cultures, while understanding the need for practicality and function. She currently lives in San Clemente with her husband Mike and their son Enzo, as well as her friend and officemate Coco (a French Bulldog).
Emilia Franceschi, Designer
Emilia is a recent graduate from the California State University of Long Beach with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Interior Design and Minor in Business Entrepreneurship. By integrating her artistic major with a foundation in entrepreneurship, her skills in design are supplemented by a healthy knowledge of marketing and business.
Since graduating, she has had over a year of design exploration. Working for boutique interior design firms in both Long Beach and her hometown of Sacramento, California has helped shape her abilities to manage small projects, as well as strengthen her design aesthetic. Still itching for adventure, Emilia later found herself gaining invaluable experience at Ibuku Luxury Bamboo Design in Bali, Indonesia. Emilia finds much of her design inspiration in nature, sustainability, and the ability to evoke feeling in a room. Her firm belief that each project should be treated with individualized attention leads her design philosophy and concepts.
Outside of work, Emilia enjoys traveling, perusing Pinterest, happy hour with friends, and spending time with her big Italian family.
