We all have our own personality and style. Our homes should reflect that individuality. A space comes alive when it reflects the client while bringing both comfort and style. Our homes are not showrooms or catalogs. They are a respite from the external world. Our job as designers is to draw out your personality and taste and create it in your space. We are confident working in any style- from traditional through contemporary. We work well with others and enjoy working on a team which often includes architects, contractors and other talented trades’ people.
It began over 30 years ago with a balancing act! Here I was, fresh from my interior design major at SDSU with four young teenagers. I wasn’t ready to leave them alone and was sure no one would hire me if I declared “My kids come first!” I jumped at the chance to sublet a studio space from another designer in Sorrento Valley and Carol Spong Interior Design was born.
My mentor was a professional ASID member and encouraged me to join the American Society of Interior Designers. In quick succession, I passed the two day NCIDQ (Nat’l Council for Interior Design Qualification) exam, joined the San Diego Chapter of ASID and began to meet the local design community.
I love being on jobsites, seeing changes happen, managing projects, interacting with craftspeople and having clients be thrilled with the results. It is truly a joy fulfilling a client’s vision.
Over the years, my designs have received many awards including numerous ASID Design Excellence Awards, San Diego Home & Garden magazine Kitchen of the Year and first place in Designer’s Showcase House. My designs are also found in both locally and national publications such as Better Homes & Gardens, San Diego Magazine, San Diego Home and Garden Lifestyle, and Sunset Books.
