Famously known as a designer who goes against the grain in an industry so fixated on trends, Interior Designer and Entrepreneur Deziner Tonie’s aesthetic is not one that can be labeled. Instead, her design is looked upon as a lifestyle that is individual to her and especially to each of her clients.
“My best designs come from listening to my clients’ visions of their environment!”
Long before her days as a successful Interior Designer, Tonie found her love of design and architecture as a child growing up in Los Angeles. DezinerTonie remembers touring model homes & driving through the diverse neighborhoods of Los Angeles.
Tonie took every “Home Economics” course that was offered. Upon graduating she received high honors academically, was a Master Seamstress and was presented with the “Most Likely to Succeed” in Home Economics from Bank of America. Today this line of study is called “American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences”. While in college Tonie was offered a position as an assistant buyer for a major Los Angeles Furniture Retailer, giving her the opportunity to break into the world of “Interiors”.
Deziner Tonie and her husband Pete operate their Design Build firm in Palm Beach, Florida. Their client lists range from professional baseball players, some Hollywood & Palm Beach socialites, CEOs of major corporations, vineyard & winery owners, medical offices and medical professional’s homes, and of course her favorite, just ordinary people who want an extraordinary environment for their homes or offices.
Her many award-winning rooms have been featured on ABC, HGTV, Discovery, Traditional Home, Southern Living, Romantic Home, Better Homes and Gardens, Kitchen and Bath, Empire Magazine, Florida Design, Your Villa and Haute living, as well as 5 Interior Design hardcover books.
