Pacaso Design Certified homes
Experience the highest standard of modern interior design: luxurious homes made for everyday living with spectacular spaces and beautiful, functional decor.
Principles of interior design
“There's a lot of purpose behind the design — it's not just about what is going to look great in a photo. If it doesn't work well when people are living there, then that’s not a good design.”
Key elements of Pacaso interior design include:
- Location & environment
- Use and flow of the home
- Function and durability
- Decorative details and home essentials
Mountains or beach?
Complementing the natural environment
The natural surroundings guide the design of the home, and location-based activities influence the furnishings and layout.
“In our design, we’re regionally specific first. People go to the places they’re really interested in, or areas that have the weather they enjoy the most — so then it's our design job to incorporate the outside in.”
We source many of our home decor items from small, local businesses including galleries, bookstores and home furnishing stores.
"In an effort to better support the communities in which we are located, Pacaso design implements a 'shop local initiative' that we apply to each home as we assess design needs. It's an important part of our process to make sure we are giving back and establishing supportive relationships with local vendors."
Designed with owners in mind
- VinceLake Tahoe owner
“I had seen pictures of the home before. But when I walked in, I saw the real scale of the place. It's a beautiful home with very well-built details. The designer did a great job of making it feel like a mountain house, but not in a kitschy kind of way. It's very warm and comfortable.”
- KevinPark City owner
“We bought the home for the price, location and amenities we saw in the photos, but what was really cool was discovering some of the other features during our first stay. Heated floors, the steam shower, amazing appliances — seeing how dialed in the home was in terms of decor and design was the icing on the cake.”
- Linda & CraigLake Tahoe owners
“The home is grand ... I like that the Pacaso team takes a lot of the work out of it. It exceeded our expectations. It was just like I remembered, but then there were also little extra things.”
- NkemMalibu owner
“Our Pacaso is outfitted with things that are modern, beautiful, new, taken care of and well-kept, and you just really appreciate that. I don’t want to worry about trying to outfit the home. I just want to get there and enjoy our time together and watch the kids play. Pacaso allows us to do that.”
