Sarah’s aesthetic leans timeless yet contemporary with an abundance of livability. “I love to mix textiles, surfaces and lines to create strong statements,” she says. “I focus on rhythm, beauty and detail.” It’s a style echoed in her “playful, personable” attitude, instantly apparent to clients — she’s never met a stranger. “I absolutely love meeting and working with new people every day,” she says. “My philosophy is to put clients’ needs first and great design follows suit.”

Sarah’s spirited approach can be ascribed to a lifelong passion for design — she worked in her first showroom at age 19. Since joining Cantoni in 2008, she has perfected her knack for spatial planning and color theory — her education includes a certificate program in each from the Designers Institute in Newport Beach — and has an expansive portfolio of residences. In every project, she thoughtfully selects each element, taking full advantage of our customizable collections and extensive portfolio of furniture, accessories and art.

“With our ability to design spaces from the ground up, our wealth of resources is second to none,” she says. “Whether I’m remodeling a kitchen, designing a commercial space or reimagining a client’s favorite room, I learn something new every day — it’s exciting.” Her detail-oriented approach extends to her own garden, with which she has a minor infatuation. “I’m obsessed with my roses,” she says.

Sarah has an amazing personality and is so fun to be around. My husband and I have very different design styles, and she really worked with us to meld them together. She’s amazing with color and space. We love our home and couldn’t be happier.
