Creating beautiful living places for your life....
“Diana’s warm personality captivated our hearts as she transformed our ‘house’ into a cozy family home. Her appreciation of our family roots brought forth our personalities in our living space. Diana blended together a tasteful serenity of the Tucson desert along with a touch of Big Sur charm. She acknowledged our longing for warmth integrating beautiful and subtle earth tones, fulfilling our dream. Diana is our design partner; she is a dear.”

“Diana is able to work easily between the seller and the Realtor. I appreciate her professionalism and expertise.”
Anita Dhesi, Davis
"It was such a pleasure working with Diana Mahoney to stage our home for sale. She came in with our agent and quickly started making suggestions. I barely noticed she was even taking notes until she sent me an email within an hour of being at our home! Diana's email detailed, room by room, what needed to be moved, changed or eliminated. It was simple to print her suggestions and go to work. Within two days I had my house in impeccable shape and I thought, maybe I don't even want to move now? Diana definitely has found her niche in this world and we feel blessed to have had her skills to make our house market ready." MaryEllen and Justin Hall, Davis, CA
“I had the pleasure of working with Diana Mahoney during the preparation stage of placing my house on the market. She came highly recommended from my realtor who had worked successfully with her in the past staging and decorating homes. Diana worked quickly, efficiently, on time and on budget to create a warm, welcoming retreat. Her professionalism and vision from start to finish made the entire process easy and even enjoyable. Her recommendations on paint colors, hardwood floors, carpet, and perfecting the final details that create the "important" first impression were right on target. My house was sold in less than three weeks during a very slow market. Diana exceeded my expectations. She has a natural eye for style and I can't wait to work with her on my own home!”
Dr. Kris Hansen, Manhattan Beach
"As a semi-retired General Contractor now specializing in interior millwork and cabinets, I can highly recommend Diana as the “ultimate source” for design ideas, colors, and overall design concepts. Her innate sense of color, blending and shading is amazing. I continue to be impressed with her ability to transform a vision into reality, no matter what a client’s design taste and wishes may be. We have worked together on many projects, and I have always found her to be gracious and professional. She is the best!"
Rich Hughes Construction, Novato
“Diana has impeccable design sense, style and savvy. She is also worth her weight in gold. I used Diana’s design services when my kitchen remodel-due to my own personal design choices-were sending me into a panic. She came in and saved the day..but not by blowing our budget or belittling my choices. She saw things my untrained eye could not. A change in wall color here, an update in hardware there-the end result: a classic, beautiful and pulled together look. Diana elegantly combines modern design trends with traditional design know how—you end up with a home or a room that will stand the Stest of time. That’s great design. That’s Diana!”
Jeff & Jennifer Harrison, Davis
“We have worked with Diana over the years on many decorating and remodeling projects and have enjoyed both the process and the results each time. Not only does Diana have a wonderful eye for design, she is also warm, enthusiastic, and a great communicator. She really listened to our needs and took the time to discover our vision for the spaces we were working with. Her ideas were unique, creative, fun, and within whatever budget we set. We also appreciated her honesty; we wanted her opinions, even when they didn't support something we had planned, and she was always quick to offer an alternative solution to any difficulty that arose. Diana is a wonderful design partner, and a joy to work with. We recommend her highly.”
Stuart & Tracy Kaplan, Davis
“Diana has been an excellent resource in helping me stage homes in preparation for being listed for sale. She is detail oriented and has an eye for proper placement for optimal showing. She has consulted with me on a wide range of clients’ needs from a house being flipped/resold to home that needs everything from paint, flooring to furniture placement. Diana is fabulous!”
Suzanne Kimmel, Davis
“Diana brought a great sense of style while really listening to me and blending her skills with my taste, living space and budget. I loved working with her, because she gently guided the whole process and had all the resources I needed to find what I loved. I really felt like I was working with a friend because she is relaxed, easy to work with and fun!! She really helped me bring all the pieces together to create a great space in my home.”
Stacy & Keith Looney, Davis
"As a REALTOR trying to prepare homes for the market, I love the way that Diana can walk into a room, squint her eyes slightly, take the whole thing in and instantly produce suggestions that will transform the space. Sometimes she merely moves a few pieces of furniture and some artwork, and the room suddenly feels opened and balanced. Diana is very talented and also a very sensitive listener. If you have an opportunity to have Diana Mahoney help you with your home, jump on it. You will be amazed."
Jamie Madison, Davis
“When Diana entered our house, I could see that her "wheels" were already turning! She asked lots of questions about vision, functionality, purpose and style preferences BEFORE she made her recommendations. She really wanted to make our house something that was natural and comfortable to US. Her ideas about everything from designing and decorating, to de-cluttering have been so helpful. We are truly enjoying our home space now. Not to mention that we get lots of complements!”
Brent & Sally McGowan, Davis
"Diana helped us through a pretty extensive remodel of our Wildhorse home. She was so helpful in getting the ball rolling on a project that had been in the planning stages for quite a while. We really needed help in finding what our preferred basic style was and once she helped us figure that out, Diana worked with us through the numerous details involved in picking out colors, flooring, design details and finding the right people to do the work. She is very easy to work with and is a very talented designer!"
Rob & Alysa Meyer, Davis
“I would highly recommend Diana as a Design Partner. I was confused and stuck as to how to redecorate my living room. Diana and I met and together we came up with a plan of attack. She is a great listener and really understood my goals for the room. Her energetic personality is infectious and decorating became easy and fun. Together we attacked other rooms in my home. Diana helped shape my house into the home I always wanted it to be. She is a caring, gifted person and will be the perfect asset to your design plans.”
Jim & Kristy Powell, Davis
"Last spring I desperately needed a change to my front, outdoor entrance. I wanted my home to feel inviting as guests approached my front door. With one visit Diana understood my intentions and had a fabulous plan for my entrance. Diana stayed on budget, while creating an appealing, warm, and welcoming environment to my home. I'll definitely have Diana back over to design again and again and again."
Lisa Qvistgaard, Davis
"Thanks Diana for all your guidance in helping us pick a color scheme when we repainted our home. Your suggestions and insights into what would work with our artwork and furnishing were wonderful. We have had a constant stream of compliments on the colors since it was completed! We will definitely use your design work for future projects."
“We have worked with Diana on many projects over the years, some simple and some more involved. Each time she has been very professional, timely and always stays on budget. She works hard to find the best deals so you get the most for your money. In our family room redesign, Diana was able to reorganize our existing furnishings in an updated way which saved us hundreds of dollars. Diana has a special knack coordinating color, space and layout. She is always helpful whether you have a quick question or need an involved design layout. Diana is fun, easy and enjoyable to work with. We would highly recommend her to anyone.”
Kathleen & Jim Thompson, Davis
