“Surrina helped us choose a new look for our fireplace and she was amazing. She came into our home, quickly assessed our style and understood our needs, and then spent time helping us narrow down options until we found something that perfectly fit our home, our style, our needs, and our budget. We are so appreciative of her guidance and expertise, all which was done with incredible care and calm." -Wendy
“My husband and I recently completed a remodel of our 1942 home. We have very eclectic tastes – Pottery Barn meets antiques. I love color but am often afraid to incorporate it. Surrina was amazing. After talking with us for a bit she gave us several ideas for color, drapes, blinds, and now we are moving on to furniture. We have been thrilled with the results.
Surrina is a consummate professional and feels like the girlfriend you have known for years. If you are on a budget, she can stick to it. For me, there are pieces I know I want to keep and am willing to spend money on but for other more “trendy” items I don’t want to spend a lot. Surrina finds those items for much less so now when I am ready to switch them out – no guilt.
Surrina works at your pace. I travel for work. Some months I am gone five days, other months I am gone 20 days. When I am in town, she will go, go, go with me. When I am on the road, she waits patiently for me to have time to continue the work. I can’t say enough great things about Surrina. Just use her!” -Kristyn
"I enjoyed working with Surrina very much. She is brilliant in her choice of color and design. I started out with a vague idea of what I wanted and I'm so pleased with the results. She was able to create for me an affordable environment of cozy elegance." -Leslie
"My husband and I loved working with Surrina! She designed two of our bathrooms from the tile down to the fixtures, chose paint colors for our entire house (inside and out), and decorated two bedrooms and a living room. Surrina listens carefully to what each of us wants and comes back with two or three choices we can work with. The process goes very smoothly and we've always been very happy with the final results. Furthermore, we feel that Surrina really cares about helping us make our house a home we love living in!" -Kim & Jesse
"We really enjoyed our experience working with Surrina. She listened to what we felt our style and objectives were and made it happen for us smoothly and beautifully. She was professional, talented, and we absolutely love the finishes she chose and her design." -Kathy
"Surrina is amazing! I first met with her to have her help me pick out wall colors for a house we just bought, but she ended up helping us pick out everything from light fixtures, to tile, to window treatments, rugs, artwork, etc. I just love her style and all the choices she selected for us. And the best part was that my husband completely trusted her, too. Now when we are thinking of buying any new furniture or fixture for the house, my husband insists on getting Surrina's approval first.
Surrina has a beautiful sense of color and design. She brings in a lot of unique patterns and textures, without overpowering the design. Every time I have guests over to our house, I always get compliments on the colors and decor in our house. Surrina is excellent at what she does, and I can't say enough about her!" -Sarah
In addition to great style, Surrina is practical, organized and a pleasure to work with. We completely remodeled our home and needed a great designer to help decorate nearly all of our rooms. Surrina was able to manage the project efficiently and kept us on task- from window treatments, rugs, room lay-outs, furniture and even the little details such as items on a bookshelf. She really listened to our preferences and was able to select items consistent with our style. She also helps balance where money is best spent. I have items in my home ranging from design center, custom pieces to Restoration Hardware and HomeGoods. I most appreciated that Surrina is not afraid to offer her opinion and a different point of view that in the end will have you in love with your home! -Aida
Surrina was amazing in guiding us through our first remodel project and helping us make decisions! She truly understood our lifestyle and was able to help us out not only with the interior decorating ideas, but also with suggestions for our kitchen layout. It was such an overwhelming process and Surrina made it easy for us! I would highly recommend her to anyone needing help with their interior design decisions. - Lynn
We built a new construction custom home and Surrina worked with us on all of the finishes. She familiarized herself with our personal taste and steered us in the right direction for everything from floors and paint colors to furniture and window treatments. She has an excellent relationship with all of the local vendors who not only do quality work but also offer great customer service at a competitive price. She is thoughtful, reliable and is mindful of staying on budget. We all love our home and attribute much of the results to Surrina's fine yet practical taste. We recommend working with Surrina without hesitation. - Julie
Surrina guided me through the daunting process of selecting tiles, plumbing fixtures, paint colors, and many other aspects of our remodel. She's so easy to get along with, and her professional expertise and positive attitude made the project much less overwhelming and even fun! Surrina always listened to my needs, but was never hesitant to share her expertise and experience, which I appreciated very much. I love her style, but I never felt that she steered me to do something that wasn't "me". It was a great pleasure to work with her, and we couldn't be happier with the results. - The Walkers
Surrina Plemons is a complete professional, along with being a pleasure with whom to work. We hired Surrina to help us with our new Craftsman home we were just beginning to build. She designed and decorated everything perfectly, from the tile in all bathrooms and kitchens to the paint colors, to all furniture amid pictures, even all accessories. The process with her was efficient, professional, cost effective, and most importantly fun. She listened to differing opinions from us and came in with wonderful solutions. We couldn't have asked for a more special and talented person to work with, and that is why when we purchased a new home in Tahoe this year we called Surrina. Again, she has done a wonderful job turning our rustic house into a cozy, chic mountain home - all while staying in budget and coming up with wonderful suggestions. - Heather
I highly recommend Surrina Plemons Interiors. I have been using Surrina for various projects for a few years now and every time she leaves I wonder why I didn't call her sooner. Her ability to listen and understand what you want to accomplish with the space and then take it in a direction that I had never envisioned is why I love working with her. There are so many ideas online, that it is overwhelming. I highly encourage folks to have at least one consultation with Surrina. It takes talent and knowledge to pull a space together and Surrina has both. -Mylinh
Surrina is an amazing designer. I worked with her on my living room and dining/office. I live in a small space so needed some areas to do double duty and optimize for functional storage. She captured what I was looking for in my space and anticipated all the little details-like a great nook for work or reading and light entertaining. My space is relaxing and a joy to be in. Most important she make it fun and easy. I highly recommend Surrina. -C. A.
We LOVED working with Surrina!! She worked hard right up front to understand what we were looking for and how she could be most effective with us, and from there forward she delivered as promised every step of the way. Surrina is creative, inspiring, fun, collaborative, delightful and brilliant!
Surrina had worked on a friend's house and did an amazing job! I knew I had to meet her. I loved her style and she was not afraid to work with fun colors. We had moved back into our house after we remodeled it and had a large empty space to work with. We had some ideas but could not figure out how to pull it all together. Surrina was amazing. She created the most amazing space for us! I can't wait for it to be posted here. It's beautiful and fun! It is everything we wanted in the space. Thank you Surrina for all your hard work and understanding when I would pause on the decisions that needed to be made. you are very inspiring and made the process fun! You are a joy to work with. -Dione

Trained interior designers, such as Surrina, by profession tend to have excellent taste. Surrina’s strengths, however, go far beyond good taste. I believe a truly exceptional designer can listen to and carry out a client’s vision and not simply stamp his or her cookie-cutter brand on your home. And when a client’s vision isn’t clear, as was the case with me, a designer who helps refine and complete a vision is even more valuable.
I contacted Surrina with a desire to transform my new urban condo using faux-concrete walls. I had a tight budget and an eclectic set of existing furniture to incorporate. Sound like a challenge? It wasn’t for Surrina.
Surrina created a wonderfully comfortable space for my family by listening to our preferences and clearly communicating back recommendations that matched them. Throughout the process, she offered many creative ideas and was not put off when some were rejected. Surrina's ego did not get in the way – she remained focused on helping us complete our vision. And when unforeseen problems occurred – a fixture out of stock or fabrics discontinued – Surrina found a resolution. Her creative problem solving and her cool disposition ultimately got the job done and helped keep us at ease along the way. I highly recommend Surrina Plemons for your interior design needs. I’m confident she will guide you through the process while keeping you feeling comfortable along the way. -Brandon
Surrina recently helped us with a living room / dining room makeover.
In addition to producing amazing results, she's so fun to work with. Surrina's process was great - she spent a lot of time listening to what we didn't like about the space and understanding our final goals. Then she went to work and provided us with color, furniture & accessory options that were right on the mark. She was very respectful of our budget and found beautiful options that stayed in our comfort zone. She also helped us decide when to splurge and when to go cheap. And she helped us prioritize purchases so we bought things that would have the biggest impact first, and can keep adding details as we're able.
I really appreciated that Surrina respected my preferences but also wasn't shy about giving her honest opinions. I felt safe taking some risks because I knew she was genuinely interested giving us what we wanted - not just choosing what she likes. So the end result is a space that really reflects our personal style, but is a gillion times more cohesive, polished, and beautiful than what I could have pulled off on my own.
I highly recommend Surrina Plemons Interiors. -
Surrina helped us redesign our mid-mountain ski residence at the Ritz @ Northstar. She was able to intuit our style very quickly and assemble the perfect mix of furnishings, rugs, window treatments and more. The project ran very smoothly: on-time and on-budget. The results are fabulous. We're so pleased that we've hired Surrina to work on our new project: a modern, new construction home in San Carlos. -Kate
