Savvy Design West
“Savvy Design West” is small interior design company that likes to challenge the established methods of interior design. Our goal is to envision what the design of tomorrow is going to be and then offer that design to our clients.
Few words about the company
Welcome to Savvy Design West. We are a small team of interior design decorators from San Jose, California. There are currently 6 of us in the team. My name is Sofia West, and I’m the owner together with my brother Rob West. What sets us apart from the majority of other interior design companies out there is our mission to bridge the gap between technology and interior design. We’re all about taking things to the next level. One example would be the use of security FPV drones, instead of just regular security cameras when designing a home. That’s actually what we did on a recent job for a security oriented individual. It took us some time to hammer out all the details, but in the end we managed to include sensor activated camera security drones with follow functionality.
No job is too small or too weird
Over the years we’ve worked with hundreds of clients and tailored their homes according to their vision. We’ve worked locations like small inner city apartments and large suburban homes. Every client had different wishes. Some, like I already mentioned, wanted design that focuses on security, like I already mentioned. Geeky Jake once had a gig where he had to decorate an entire house with tech. It was right up his alley. There were Star Wars figurines, computers, displays, electric skateboard, etc. all over the house. One of the more interesting projects that I worked on was designing a flat whose owner wanted to grow his own food. We had to ask for permission from the landlord, and eventually the owner had his own garden, with raised beds next to windows and greenery all over the flat.
Who we are and what we do
Our focus on technology is no surprise considering the fact that all 6 of us are under young guys and gals, and all of us are obsessed with tech. Interior design is our other great love, so it made sense to combine the two and start this company. It’s a good things that we did. Last month marked a 5 year anniversary of our company being in business. We’re doing something right since we managed to stay afloat during all these years in todays economy. At first it was just me and my brother Rob. As the business grew we hired more people. My team has characters like geeky Jake, who each day brings a different toy like hoverboards and electric skateboards to show off. There’s Lisa, who try’s to make it big with her band. A weird mix of people, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Let's innovate interior design
Our mission is to innovate interior design, shake things up and break the mold. Like we already said, no job is too weird. We realize that different people have different tastes, unique ideas and unique visions of how their homes should be decorated. We won’t steer you away from your ideas, but rather work on them, give you our insights and bring them to life in your home. We are focused on creating modern interior designs which keep up with the times. Many decorators like to stick to classic designs, but not us, we’re here to stir the pot. Check out some of the designs that we’ve worked on over at our portfolio page. Don’t worry, we’ve asked permissions to post these. Privacy of our clients is very important to us. If you’re convinced and would like to work with us, then head on to the contact page and send us a message. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible, usually within a day.
Hi, my name is Sofia and I’m a certified interior design decorator from San Jose, California. I’ve started “Savvy Design West” together with my brother Rob back in 2012. Since then we’ve grown and worked with hundreds of clients on making their homes their own. In my spare time I like to read books, go out on a run or to the movies.
Hello, I’m Rob and I’m the co-owner of “Savvy Design West” together with my sister Sofia. We both liked design from when we were very little. It wasn’t always interior design though, but that’s what we were drawn to in college and ever since we finished school we’ve been working on “Savvy Design West”. When I’m at home I’m usually cooking, playing games or playing the guitar.
Hi there, my name is Jake Rosenthal, but everybody calls me Geeky Jake. It don’t mind, we’re all family here at “Savvy Design West”. I’ve been with the company for almost three years now. I’m the guy who’s crazy about tech, and show it when the team is working on a design. I’ll be the one who says “why not add a flat screen there”.
My name is Lisa Fuller and I’m the newest employee here at “Savvy Design”. I’ve only worked here for 6 months now. My job is that of a junior accounts manager. When I’m not at work, or at home watching Netflix and chilling you can usually find me at practice. I’m in a band, and I hope to make it big some day with my music.
Hi everyone, I’m Jess and I’m the third in command behind Sofia and West. Official title is senior accounts manager, but since we’re a small team, we all help out where we can. I’m currently in the process of becoming a certified interior design specialist. In my spare time I like to go out on a walk with my dog Hank and
Hi there, I’m Steve and I’m an interior design specialist. Born and raised in San Jose. In “Savvy Design West” I work as a chief designer for over a year now.

PASSION, DESIGN, SUCCESS!
Passion is where all things start. Without passion you would never be able to get out of bed and go to work. Our passion is about interior design and our goal is to be successful at what we do. It’s just like that, plain and simple.
OUR SERVICES INCLUDE
First step in our process is one-on-one consultation with tue client. That’s when we gather information on what exactly you are interested in, your tastes, your vision of what your home should be. After that we are moving on to the next phase of the design process.
Floor plans and color palettes
Second stage of the design process involves making a preliminary floor plan and picking a basic color palette. We use dedicated software to help us create a rough draft of the floor plan, or floor plans. Changes can be made throughout the entire process, so don’t hesitate to ask to have something changed. We then workout all the kinks before making a full 3D model.
Pitches from the rest of the team
Now that we have a rough draft of your home design, it’s time for the rest of the “Savvy Design West” team to pitch in. We ask everyone to give their ideas on what should be done differently, and if you like what the rest of the team suggests, that’s what we’re going to do. It’s just quick tips and suggestions. Like the old saying goes, six heads are more better than one.
3D model of the design
After all the changes have been made to the draft and we’ve gone through all the design revisions, that’s when it’s time to create a 3D model of the design, so you can see how everything is going to look like before starting actual work on the object. Again we use dedicated software that creates a realistic representation of the design. After you OK everything, we start work.
