Welcome, make yourself at home.

Home

When I was a little girl growing up in San Diego I fondly remember re-arranging my mom’s perfume bottles on her gold gilded mirrored tray. I’d introduce new pops of color on our living room sofa by placing fabric over the existing decorative pillows.

Although my love for design developed early, my career choice began in nursing. It wasn’t until after I graduated from nursing school, married my high school sweetheart, bought “fixer uppers” to flip while raising our three kids, that I realized my true passion and furthered my education in design.

I pride myself on attention to detail in bringing my clients inspirations and visions to life since 2000. Creating polished spaces that are functional and always an element of unexpected fun to the space are my known traits.

I’m always discovering creative ways to stay on budget by re-purposing and re-arranging with a fresh perspective. I find inspiration in nature and all that surround me. Complimenting that one client and one space is a vision that is always a priority. Doing what you truly love is such a gift and for that I’m blessed… All while making lifelong friends along the way.

Then,because that went so well ( it sold in 3 weeks,in December, with multiple offers). and she was lovely to work with, I also hired her to design my new house, which is almost finished I can't say enough about Terri! She has amazing creativity, is flexible, thorough knowledge of the industry and trends, and, best of all, Terri is delightful to work with. She makes your project fun!

  • "Terri is a genius, and I have worked with her probably 5 times now, over a period of 8 years. I first met her when I was staging a house to sell. It looked so good after she did it, I dropped a jaw when I saw it. Wow. I had to remind myself why I was leaving. No kidding, she transformed the place using my existing stuff, often placing furnishings and wall hangings in locations where I just would never have thought to put them."...more

  • "I cannot say enough about Terri.  If you are looking for design assistance in your home,rental business or staging she can do it all!  She is so talented, creative and has such great ideas and does all this without breaking the bank :). I first hired her 13 years ago when we moved into our new home,  Our new home had high ceilings and was a larger scale so my furnishings from my previous home looked very small.  It was not in our budget to refurnish the house.  Terri came and incredibly made my old furniture look amazing.  She also gave me tips and ideas on a few new pieces I needed.  Since then I have hired her to decorate my home for special occasions and most recently to give my house a new lighter and brighter look. She helped me select some new furniture and accessories. The new look feels so much more updated!  I also  learned that she is also very talented in the commercial/business design as well.  After a flood in my husband's office we had to select new hard surface finishes ASAP including cabinetry design, flooring, carpet, wallpaper, and paint.  Some of these we had to select from some very small samples.She saved me from making several costly mistakes.  Now it is all coming together beautifully.  Terri will make your space beautiful and save you $$.  She is a true professional and so much fun to work with as well."...more

  • "I have worked with many interior designers for our homes and office buildings in both California and Utah.  Terri is the only designer that I would recommend.  She listens to her clients needs and desires and designs according to their expectations.  So many designers design based on what they want to see.  Terri has done several projects for us and has never disappointed.  She is able to envision many different styles based on what the client is looking for in atmosphere and design.  It always comes out better than  imagined.  You will not be disappointed working with her.  She is such a delight, warm and personable."...more

  • "Terri Wise of Interior Makeovers worked with us on two occasions. She did a fabulous job helping us set up a our new house. When we added a room on to our home we asked her to come back and help with the new addition. She helped with matching the paint, floor, furniture, etc. but at the same time allowed our much loved antique furniture and unique artwork shine through." ...more

  • "Fantastic! I didn't realize I had so many "jewels" in my house until Interior Makeovers came in. Loved the placement of my furniture, lamps, pictures and accessories in both the living room and the family room. The ideas were uplifting., I also loved her patience with me. She helped me to pick out my tile (of which I had samples) and made suggestions for a few new purchases. I would recommend Interior Makeovers to everyone!" ...more

  • "Interior Makeovers did an amazing job staging my home mostly with the existing furniture and some custom work that was needed to sell the house. I lived in La Costa and Terri came highly recommended and I followed up on others that used her services and decided "Interior Makeovers" was the best choice I ever made. The house looked amazing when I returned after a few days, I was almost rethinking about not selling when I came home, but needed to be back in Canada. I listed the ranch style home at a reasonable price of $799,000. The opening day brought in 14 bids and a bidding war went on and the house sold for $1,100,000. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT! It truly makes a difference on first impressions when someone walks through the door, I would use "Interior Makeovers" if I wanted to sell my home or have a fresh new look that will make your home "YOURS" for many years to enjoy." ...more

  • "After numerous attempts at trying to give my mom's somewhat "dated" living room the Wow Factor, I went online to find a professional to take over this task. This is when I found Terry, and boy am I pleased! She came in, sent mom away for the day and brought some much needed life into the home. Mom was so pleased and cannot just walk by the room without stopping to look at it. We are so pleased with Terry's work and will definitely be using her again. She gave us ideas that we would have never thought about. She is also very fun to work with. I personally had so much fun shopping with her. You cannot lose by hiring her for your interior makeover." ...more

We have worked together on many occasions, and I have recommended her to many clients for staging prior to sale, as well as interior design for clients creating their sanctuary...

  • "We have had the privilege of working with Terri Wise on three office design projects over the past 10 years, the latest having been completed this month (March 2015). She is most professional and experienced. She works well with us in sharing ideas and possibilities. All three times, when we were moving and enlarging our office space, we called on her because of the positive and most attractive office designed results. Her fees are appropriate and reasonable. We gladly recommend her design approach and services."...more

  • "After we built our new home and placed our existing furniture predictably up against the walls I knew I needed some professional help. We had a garage full of furniture we loved and didn't know where it would fit. I'm so glad I called Terri before I made the costly mistake of selling my garage full of furnishings. She listened to my desires and needs for function and surely delivered. Terri is able to envision a rooms full potential and gets so excited to make it happen. She moved my furniture in such a way I never could have imagined...all while using the furniture in the garage. She helped us pick just the right color of paint and gave us great ideas for the finishing touches. I highly recommend Terri for your design renovations/challenges for your home or office. She listens to her clients and is very warm and personable. Call Terri you will be so glad you did!"...more
