December 2015


Happy Holidays everybody!

Another year has ended and by our tradition we are sharing a small selection of exciting projects we had the pleasure to work on in 2015!

As you may have noticed Mindful Design Consulting brand also had a complete makeover this year.  We've had the same look since 2008 and it became outdated and stagnant by modern design standards.  The new logo and colors represent the bright and cheerful work we usually do for our clients.  Please let us know what you think about our new brand!  You can see our new website with the new colors and meet our design team HERE.

Want to learn more about what we do?  You can always follow us on Facebook or see interior design news on our Blog.

Truly yours, EKATERINA KOHLWES principal / designer

Cousin's Candy Store

If you remember last year we had the pleasure of designing a new interior for Cousin's Candy store in Old Town San Diego.  This year Cousin's Candy opened their 3rd location in Seaport Village. The store is famous for making homemade taffy which is made fresh daily!

Heavenly Yogurt Shop

Heavenly Yogurt shop brought an old ice-cream feel to the local community of Tierrasanta, San Diego, CA.  The interior design was a close collaboration with the owner of the place who knew exactly what she wanted the store to look and feel like.
