I’m Deborah Cañedo, an interior designer born and raised in beautiful Southern California. I started this blog as a way to share some of my favorite design tips, ideas and products.

My design philosophy is called Modern Mix. I believe that modern isn’t defined by a particular era or style, but rather the way a particular design idea or unique architectural detail enhances and celebrates an individual’s personal style. I try and capture my clients’ individuality by integrating personal tastes with modern interpretations, textures and colors to create an updated, fresh look.

In 2000, I started Cañedo Décor and currently work with a wide range of high-end residential and commercial clients. I’m very fortunate to work with an amazing team of contractors and product experts that allow me to not only take on design consulting jobs, but also major renovations.

My inspiration is my grandfather who is a retired contractor and jack-of-all trades. He built his own home of 70 years as well as my childhood home that is still in the family today.
