Exceptional design is an artful combination of creativity, function, and careful selection of materials. The difference between design that simply looks nice and design that works well lies in the initial planning. Good design, whether it is for a home, a landscape, or a single event, works by drawing the personality of the client into the space being created. At StarFive Design, we work closely with our clients to discover what aspect of themselves they wish to bring to an area and what effect they wish to evoke when others enter the environment. We then put this knowledge to work to create a tasteful reflection of the client's desires.
StarFive offers a diverse range of services including interior design, remodeling and rearranging, furniture design, landscaping, and event planning. Founded by Susan Westerbeke in 1980, StarFive Design created several showcase home and business interiors in Marin and Sonoma counties and staged events nationwide. Ms. Westerbeke is known for her flair with color, her attention to detail, and her whimsical sense of humor. Her work ultimately takes its inspiration from her clients, their homes or the occasion.
