Trinidad Rodrigez
Interior Designer

Being born and raised in sunny California has given Trinidad a calm, relaxing and eclectic design style. Graduating from Westwood College and earning her Bachelors Degree in Interior Design, she has gained knowledge to create functional and appealing interiors for every budget and every lifestyle. Her loving parents were the inspiration for her to explore the world of design. Her father, with his knowledge of construction, interested her in the creation of a home and her mother, a seamstress, inspired her creatively with fabric and color combinations. This combination has given Trinidad the capability to analyze the structure of a project while never losing sight of its artistic beauty and what can be accomplished. Trinidad has the ability to take any challenge and create a unique environment for its owner by combining a mixture of the client’s needs and wants and her unique flair. She believes every room needs to have something old, which can represent history – something new, to show personality and something eye catching to make people stop and take notice.
