Eco-Friendly Interior Design

Synthesis Interiors & Color is a full-service interior design and color consulting firm with a focus on green principles, practices and materials, based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We take a holistic approach to our work, engaging clients in a joyful, collaborative process that balances form, function, and sustainability. We see our role as change-makers and leaders in the community, supporting choices made in light of their social and environmental impact.
Our design process will take your vision from dream to reality, from inspiration boards and information gathering through conceptual sketches, construction documents, and project management. We will clearly define the scope of work in relation to your needs, goals, schedule and budget. Whether you're in Berkeley, Oakland, Marin, or San Francisco — let us synthesize your space!
