BIOGRAPHY

 

For more than 25 years, Paulette Trainor, ASID, has been recognized as one of Northern California's finest and most creative interior designers, with a multitude of satisfied clients to her credit.

Whether the project is an entire house or just a room, Paulette's approach is to engage in a collaborative process with her clients, resulting in a finished project that reflects the clients' tastes, not her own. Beginning with a discussion on how the clients use their homes, as well as their design likes and dislikes, Paulette leads them through a process that creates a finished project that is customized to that client. While more challenging than a cookie-cutter, "here's what I think" approach, the resulting product is an environment that truly represents the clients, not the designer. As a result, each project is individualized, timeless and enjoyed by the clients frequently for decades.

Paulette is able to take this approach with her clients and make it efficient because of her wealth of experience in multiple design styles and her extensive knowledge of color, art, furniture and period pieces. Her projects have included the homes and businesses of many of the Central Valley's leading citizens, as well as design projects in New York City, Long Island, Colorado, Florida, Lake Tahoe and the Bay Area.

Paulette is also a color consultant, having received her certification from the "International Association of Color Consultants North America, the only person in Sacramento to have earned that distinction.

As one of Sacramento's most-awarded designers, Paulette has received numerous awards and recognitions for her design accomplishments, as well as her philanthropic work. Her clients have truly become her best source of new clients with the testimonials to her work.
