NEW Construction + Renovations + remodels

We work with your contractor and architect to accomplish a cohesive design. We can select the interior details such as tile, flooring, lighting, plumbing, and wall finishes to achieve the desired look and feel for your project.

We love working with a talented team of design professionals. Our job is to communicate and interpret the client’s dreams, to work closely with architects, builders and artisans and to make the process as seamless as possible with the best result.

Furniture, furnishings and equipment (FF+E)

We love working on the interior finishes and being involved from the start. Our team will help develop the concept from hard goods finish selection to the soft goods. Tile, plumbing, paint, wallpaper to accessories and pillows.

Furniture + Decor

We are passionate about creating interiors that reflect a client’s unique personality and a distinctly Californian point of view. ECD&D thoughtfully layers textured, organic, and luxury elements, overseeing a project from conception to completion.



We pride ourselves in our ability to design comprehensive floor plans that best utilize your space and fit your lifestyle. We source furniture from local, national, and online vendors to find the perfect vintage or modern furnishing for your space.


Spaces with special details and limitations often require custom built-in and furniture options. Whether bespoke cabinetry for your kitchen or a sofa for your family room, we’ll work with local vendors, artisans, and boutiques to one-of-a-kind pieces that meet your design and size requirements.

Green + sustainable Design

We are sensitive to the surroundings and the environments we create. For clients interested in "green" materials and furniture, we are happy to incorporate our knowledge and spec green products and furnishings into the design.


Exterior or interior, we can guide you in selecting your complete color palette.


There’s nothing better than embellishing your completed space with artwork and accessories. We love putting the finishing touches on a space by shopping and styling one-of-a-kind items that will compliment your furnishings and make your space shine. As lovers of anything vintage, especially from the 1970's, we will find that special piece to complete the space, and help curate your vintage furniture collection.

What to expect ?

Our design work is billed on an hourly basis accompanied with a brief description of the task. All service invoices are sent monthly. All merchandise invoices are sent as we purchase, and in most cases, items will not be ordered until payment has been received. All invoices are payable by credit card or check. A retainer is required for most projects to begin. Once we assess the scope of the project we can give a projected estimate on time for implementation and completion.

"I worked with Elena on a major renovation to a Mill Valley home with numerous challenges. Pulling the interior together was really a team effort of Architect, Designer, Client. Elena brought great creative ideas and options to the table. Her ability to compliment and enhance the architecture greatly elevated the overall result. And…she really made the whole process fun!"
