With various connections to Bay Area artists, selecting meaningful art is our not-so-guilty pleasure that we happen to thrive in. We'll help you find connective pieces that look stunning, tell your story, making your space truly yours.

our clients say the nicest things

“Stefanie, at Emerson Grace Design, helped me refurbish my formal dining room and select artwork for my family room. She has such great, classy taste and her ideas were exactly what I needed. Stefanie really listened to what I envisioned. She helped me choose fabric, paint color and added decorating details. It turned out beautifully and it makes me smile every time I walk past the room. She made the process fun and everything went smoothly. Stefanie was flexible with meeting times, professional and knowledgeable with current trends, and really listened to what I was wanting. She made the decision much easier. I recently hired her to help me re-do a bathroom and I am so excited to work with her again!”
