byrd profile

Beatriz has over ten years of combined experience in both residential and commercial interior design. Before launching her studio, she designed for and collaborated with several well respected architectural and boutique design firms throughout Los Angeles. It’s only natural that her curious mind and living in three culturally diverse cities, São Paulo, Taipei, and Los Angeles, piqued her interest in observing how environment impacts an individual’s mood and quality of life. This notion set her on a quest to design spaces that are thoughtful and inspiring, in effort to enhance the quality of the experience in any given space. Sparked by an active imagination, she often sees possibilities from many different angles. This zest for solving problems allows her to synthesize several (sometimes opposing) ideas together until she derives at an eloquently cohesive design solution for the best outcome. As someone who appreciates history and art, she particularly enjoys re-envisioning historic spaces in a fresh modern way, and integrating nature and natural light wherever possible, while still maintaining the architectural integrity of the place.

Beatriz is an NCIDQ licensed interior designer. She holds a Master’s degree in Interior Architecture from UCLA Extension and Cal Poly Pomona joint program, and a Bachelor’s Arts degree in Film & Media Studies from UCI.

While she’s not consumed with tinkering with design ideas, she’s antiquing through new cities and foodie’ing out with her music advertising guru husband.
