I would highly recommend Cynthia to anyone I know who is in need of high-end design for home and office… She redesigned my bathroom, home office, and master bedroom as well as walk-in closet. Her brilliant idea to add a skylight to my dark and dreary hallway/staircase brightened the house into a lovely home. Cynthia made my house a beautiful haven and a place I am happy and proud to come back to. After doing such an amazing job at my home, I brought her in to Imagine Entertainment, where I was working at the time, to redesign my office and several other executives’ offices, as well as the Imagine kitchen. Once again, she elevated everyone’s workspace. I am grateful for all the great work she has done for me, at work and at home. Suffice it to say, I’m her biggest fan and cannot recommend her highly enough.
Cynthia Charette is one of the preeminent designers of this decade. From my 30 years of working in the film and lifestyle industry, she has an unparalleled ability to reflect a client’s personal identity while at the same time creating an environment that is exciting and aspirational.
Cynthia designed my loft in West Hollywood - the result was a sophisticated, livable home that combined contemporary style with traditional elements. A vintage French art deco chandelier hung opposite Italian textured wallpaper in a deep cobalt blue, amid hues of grey, taupe and cream. When I sold the unit, I had 5 offers within 4 days, and was in escrow in less than a week, for well above the asking price!
Cynthia Charette helped me turn a dull, uninspired home office into a work of art using her amazing eye for color and design, combined with a keen ability to purchase comfortable and classy furniture without breaking the bank. Over the next decade she beautifully re-decorated almost every room in our traditional Los Angeles home and then designed our contemporary vacation home in Palm Springs. I would not trust any one else to create as wonderful and warm an environment as Cynthia does. She is the best!
I hired Cynthia to design my new office space and I can honestly say it was probably the best decision I could have made. Her extensive background in interior design and experience dealing with film and television sets were the primary reasons I decided to hire her. She really listened to what my goals were and she was able to translate that into an amazing workspace for my team and me. She has such an incredible eye for what does in terms of space planning and architecture. She also picked out a color palette that made everyone on my team and any visitor who came to the office stop and say “Wow, what amazing colors these are!” It’s not easy finding a designer who understands what you really want, but Cynthia was able to pull it all together to create an office that everyone just loves coming to work to everyday. I highly recommend Cynthia to anyone who wants his or her space to come to life! She’s got an amazing talent and a she’s an amazing human being as well.
Cynthia and her team were commissioned with working their magic on our church building when we purchased an older, yet spectacular 1900s church in the Loz Feliz district of Los Angeles. The building had a lot of character and much of it was hidden by years of neglect. Not only did she bring the building back to a vibrant place to worship, she worked to restore the architecture that had been demolished and/or was never properly designed. She created a color pallet that generated words of response like, “warm”, “inviting”, and “reflective” and “an atmosphere of worship that helped us connect with the Divine/God”. Cynthia is a delight to work with and kept to budget and a timeline that had been agreed. While I am no longer the Senior Pastor of this church, I would have no hesitation in working with her again, should the opportunity arise. I highly recommend her to future clients.
Working with Cynthia was a pleasure. She listened to our ideas (and asked us questions about our style), knew our budget, and then helped us select new colors for our home. She gave us options, and combinations I never would have ever thought about. The work turned out perfectly: Her crew was thorough and professional—just like Cynthia herself.
We hired Cynthia to choose the colors for our kitchen and the exterior of our house and they look stunning. Our house is 100 years old, so she chose colors that felt both historic and modern. We felt honored that she could transform our house with sumptuous colors that were custom and personalized for our home.
