Testimonials


"I thought I could design my new home on my own and quickly found out how difficult it is. Corine Maggio is a special person and an absolute pleasure to work with I felt as though Corine got my style and made me feel confident in the amazing design decisions she made. She met my deadlines and worked wonderfully with my contractor. I specifically loved her choices in paint color and the accessories that she choose. She completely transformed my home and we get endless compliments on how cool and beautiful is."

"My parents will be retiring soon and bought a luxury condo in downtown San Diego in the Grande building overlooking the water. My siblings and I hired Corine to furnish the condo - it was completely empty. Neither my parents, myself, or my siblings live anywhere near San Diego, so everything was left to Corine. She did an excellent job and we were all very happy with her work! She was always in constant contact with multiple family members (which i'm sure was hectic at times since we disagreed amongst ourselves often) and helped guide us into an informed decision while being very respectful with the differing opinions and family dynamics. She listens carefully and is very patient. She is extremely good at what she does and has great taste. Our family is extremely pleased with her services and we would recommend her to anyone."

"Through word of mouth, I received a delightful and initial call from Corine Maggio. She heard that I was seeking a designer that specialized in coastal design. Much to my delight, she was professional, personable, and very helpful from the start of our first conversation. At that point I had already been two years in the remodeling process of our first home. Although I had a lot of foresight, I had reached a point of being overwhelmed and unfocused with many of my ideas. Corine met with me and shared our family's vision of the home that we were aspiring to have. She began with our master bedroom and overall flooring for the house. From start to finish she was open, receptive, professional, and a delight to work with. I found the estimate for the design of our room to be right on target. She delivered beautifully and both my husband and I were very happy! Once this project is complete, we fully intend to use Corine Maggio Natural Designs as our design company for the remaining future projects in our home."

"In preparation for retirement, we moved to San Diego from Salt Lake City. Leaving a two story, six bedroom suburban home and coming into a three bedroom beach house, we quickly discovered we had too much of the wrong kind of furniture. We knew what we liked, but had trouble envisioning it in our home. We sought out designers and were referred to Corine. She met with us and we quickly became comfortable with her style ideas and background, but it was her upbeat enthusiasm and energy that sold us on hiring her. Corine was able to give us plans that were unique and innovative yet kept us with a comfortable beach house which, we feel, matches the community we live. As we work our way through the house, we continue to be pleased with her designs. We highly recommend you take the time to meet Corine and look at her work, I think you’ll find after you meet her that she can help you as well."

"This was the first time my husband and I ever sought out help from a professional and we couldn't have been more blown away by Corine and her team. We had just moved into a big open loft downtown and it was our first "grown up" place. I am a dancer and massage therapist, my husband likes to paint and write. We also love entertaining, so we needed the space to be very versatile. Corine's design was absolutely amazing, and perfect for what we wanted. She was incredibly on point and professional, and found us pieces that were unique and appealed to our artsy personalities while also coordinating a very modern feel. She worked within our budget too. I am so happy we found Corine, she is truly a gem and I highly recommend you hire her right now!!!!!!"

"We interviewed multiple candidates and picked Corine for her innovative ideas, excellent communication and having the innate ability to translate our sketchy ideas into a four dimensional world of space and color. We originally wanted her to design a couple of rooms and ended up having her design and furnish the entire house, inside and outside, patio and roof. Her color palette for the exterior and interiors combined with the fresh design transformed the house we purchased from a dull, green, brown sad space to a fresh coastal with whites and shades of blue and gray."

"We hired Corine Maggio to decorate our brand new condo in the Grand South building in downtown San Diego, CA. The condo was completely bare and we gave her the task of designing it from scratch down to every last detail (dishes, silverware, and even hand soap included). She was excellent to work with. Very professional, considerate, thoughtful, organized, and caring. Every expense was tediously detailed in an organized invoice along the entire way. I was happy to see someone so enthused about her job. It was like she was rooting for us to have the best place possible and she did it. She was very budget conscious and had plenty of options for us. We gave her free reign to just make it the best home possible for us, but she still checked in regularly to make sure she was heading in the right direction. Would recommend her to any of my friends or family."

"We recently moved into a new house that was much bigger than our previous one, as well as a completely different style. We new we needed help furnishing and decorating several rooms, and Corine did a fantastic job! We have nothing but positive things to say about her -- both her professionalism and hard work, as well as her positive attitude and encouragement. She is very gifted at what she does and truly gives her job 110%. We were so pleased with her work that we decided to use her to tackle a complete remodel of our master bathroom. We couldn't be happier with the results! I would recommend Corine in a heartbeat!"
