About

JOAQUIN ABREGO, RID, IIDA, LEED AP ID+C, NCIDQ

I am a licensed interior designer with a green thumb who dabbles in arts & crafts, and have an affinity for all things pop. My work spans the gamut from art and furniture to interior design and decorating. I am best known for my use of color and pattern, as well as my ability to seamlessly mix materials. When I am not working on commercial projects for the firm, you can find me flipping homes or working on my art products. Having over 10 years of design experience, I have been fortunate to work with all types of budgets, design styles and clients; making me the ideal designer for any project or person.
