Sophie Azouaou is not just an Interior Designer…she’s the Queen of The Extreme Home Makeover !

My husband and I had an idea of the look we wanted for our new East Bay home but we didn’t have the resources nor the time and energy to make it a reality. Not only did Sophie understand the ambience we were hoping to create but she took it to another level of sophistication. We wanted a home that was elegant, stylish and yet child- friendly.

Through Sophisticate Interiors we created a home that is inviting, warm, luxurious and filled with unique European touches. Despite the refined feel, our many guests, our kids and their “little” friends feel completely comfortable roaming from room to room with abandon.

Sophie , we thank you!
