My Story

Growing up in the Caribbean, Maureen Tepedino began expressing her innate artistic ability by drawing sketches of Jamaican sceneries and still life. She further developed her creative talents by learning from her father, who was a Developer, and also by assisting Architect Karl Thorne, of Karl Thorne and Associates, with the design of many of his construction and design projects. Maureen later on studied Interior Design and Art at Santa Monica City College.  This passion that began in childhood continued on into her adult life, where she utilized her abilities on many creative ventures including owning Maureen's Boutique, a women's clothing boutique in Santa Monica for 18 years. Maureen designed sportswear and career clothing and helped many women develop their style with her expertise in wardrobe consulting and accessory planning.


While working as an Interior Designer/Decorator and Color Specialist, Maureen used her talents towards assisting her clients with transforming their homes or offices through color and design, furnishings, window treatment and all of their decorating needs. In addition, Maureen created custom art pieces to compliment their existing spaces and color choices. Maureen enjoys the challenge of working with color. She carefully listens to her client's color preferences, then incorporates her own unique color blending techniques to complement the clients' existing space.
To Maureen, color is magical and she has captured the art of transforming dull, uninviting walls into warm, cozy, exciting and dramatic ones.  She also uses color to increase or decrease the spaciousness of a room or change its environment!
