We love Tonie! When choosing someone to help you make your home what you want, even if you are unsure about that yourself, Tonie can do this. She gets to know you and what you like and don’t like. For me, I knew what I didn’t like but I couldn’t always pinpoint what I did. I have had the pleasure of working with her more than once. She has helped through smaller projects to a major remodel of our home. She keeps on top of the fresh. new ideas, but respects if you want to keep something that is special to you and works it into her designs. You can not go wrong with her help. Sometimes things in the design world seem pricey to me, but everything that we have used has lasted and feels timeless. She and her husband work together and they are so kind and make a great team.

Last year Tonie and her Luv2Dezin team assisted our family in remodeling our kitchen, dining and living area and we now have a beautiful, relaxing environment to gather, entertain and relax in. I had interviewed several designers and easily narrowed my selection to Tonie and her team. Tonie is an active listener and helped us visualize and enact what we had been wanting for our home and made sure we stayed in budget. Tonie is passionate about her work and if we had a question or comment she was easy to reach and answered quickly yet prudently. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and her team to help you reach your vision for your house for remodel big or small or a consultation. The process could be overwhelming and her diligence made it so we didn’t worry – which is like gold for a busy household.

Tonie helped us out on decorating our house and it came out fantastic. She has great ideas and easy to work with. She has a great sense of humor and fun to work with. My husband and I are very happy with the results of the projects we all worked on together. Tonie’s is very talented and certainly knows how to decorate and house working with your tastes and ideas. We recommend Tonie and her staff, they were easy to work with.

My husband and I just finished the renovation of our dream home in Newport Beach, CA. Deziner Tonie and her Team of experts did a wonderful job guiding us through the process, from initial cad drawings, to finish selections, floor plans, lighting selections, plumbing selections, we did not make a single decision without consulting Tonie and her team. They handled everything from blueprint approval from the city, obtaining bids for our construction, managing our construction project and adding all the finishes as specified. We are in the process now of furniture selections..We are very excited to see the final project come together. We highly recommend this firm for all your design build needs, you may feel it will cost you more then you want to spend, but all projects do. Without them we would have way over spent our budget.

Have had the utmost pleasure of working with Deziner Tonie and her team over 20+ years. Always high quality craftsmanship, professional, and top notch service.

My wife and I have worked with Deziner Tonie for over 11 years. Her firm has completely remodeled and designed two homes for us. They provided us great value and service on all of our projects. We have referred them to many of our friends and family, they too have been very pleased. Pete is the General Contractor on the projects, he is also wonderful to work with, as are all of the sub contractors they have brought into our homes. If ever our budget was not enough, they were kind to either wait until we could increase it, or offered us suggestions to reduce the costs. Like everything else, our tastes sometimes exceed our budgets, this firm is excellent at trying to find ways to still give us a perfect outcome. They provided us with beautiful remodeled Kitchens and Bathrooms as well as completely furnished our homes for us. We are very happy we found this design firm. We cannot wait to begin our next project with Tonie and her firm in the Wine Country of Paso Robles.

My husband and I purchased a 20 year old home in Palm Desert in 2012. We were overwhelmed by the work that we knew needed to be done to bring the home up to date. After researching and interviewing 3 other Interior Designers we chose Deziner Tonie & Associates to help us with the remodeling and interior design. Their team was especially appealing to us because they were a Licensed Design Firm who also are General Contractors. Deziner Tonie and her team are unmatched talents in interior design and remodeling. From our initial meeting to discuss our style, timeline and target budget through the final “grand reveal” of our new home, they exceeded expectations every step of the way. Designer Tonie has a “flare” that is able to marry traditional home features and furnishings with a touch of the unexpected to create spaces that feel comfortable and inviting yet young and relevant. Deziner Tonie and the team were exceptional at quickly interpreting our tastes and finding pieces that we fell in love with at first sight — or when necessary, recalibrating on the spot thus contributing to the efficiency of the selection process. Further, we feel like we got exceptional furnishings throughout our home that can stand up to the wear and tear of an active family and entertaining schedule, but that were within our desired budget and that reflect our personalities. During the course of our design and build experience, Deziner Tonie always made herself accessible and continually provided interested, experienced and exceptionally talented advice (or an ear, when required) and her advice was delivered in a timely, candid and professional manner. We would hire Deziner Tonie & Associates team again without any hesitation. We thoroughly enjoyed the process and LOVE the results of our collaboration!

I have worked with Tonie on several projects over the last two years. Our home was built in 1993 and has “good bones”, but some of the rooms were looking tired and needed updating. My mother is an interior designer so I have lived my life around beautiful furniture, fabrics, accessories, etc. As a result, I was very concerned about finding a designer who would compliment my taste, listen to me, but also push me out of my comfort zone so that our home would look young, fresh and current….but would still reflect my family. She has done that and more! I can’t tell you how happy I am with the changes we have made. We started with our master bedroom and bath, moved on to the living room, then the dining room, my teenaged daughter’s room, and now the family and laundry rooms. She has a great eye and found clever ways to use my existing pieces and make them look new by painting, re-upholstering or re-positioning. Not only am I COMPLETELY thrilled with the results, but I feel like she is now an extended member of the family. My husband and daughter feel the same way. As a matter of fact, my husband (who btw can let his irrational concern for budget drive his opinions about design:)) recently said “I’m not worried, whatever you and Deziner Tonie want to do….” Really, that’s the highest compliment!! Oh and one more thing, she is really fun to be around and that’s important too!

I had a master bathroom and closet remodel. It turned out better than I ever expected or the expectations I had. My designer was very knowledgable and helpful at every turn. Her team is awesome at knowing how to incorporate my style as well as items that made it look elegant.
