Read a review from one of Corey's clients

As a recognized leader in classical residential interior design, Corey began her career in 1977 as the apprentice of B.C. Takahashi; a dynamic Japanese designer with a practice in Hong Kong and the U.K. Takahashi recruited the UCLA student three months prior to graduation during a campus job fair. The opportunity took her ambitions to Tokyo, Pattaya Beach Thailand, London and Ibiza assisting in design projects.

In 1979, the young designer made a shift in the direction of her practice and left 29 Conduit Road, Hong Kong to set up a modest design studio in the Southern California beach town of Belmont Shore. She maintained her practice while attending Long Beach State University – “Business of Design” courses under Peter Stobart AIA; an accomplished Westwood architect. In 1983 Ms. Schulz relocated to Northern California.

Her projects range from Contemporary & Oriental flats to California Cottage and Country Estates.

Corey integrates into her practice beautiful aesthetics combined with sustainable elements, while remaining true to her classic sense of design. She encourages interns to travel abroad to gain an advantage from the technical implications of styles and historical development of architecture.

The intrepid Corey Schulz has been the recipient of numerous design awards. In 2006 and 2007, she was the recipient of several design awards from the Interior Design Society Western Regional Design Competition. In 2006, she extended her design talents to the success of the IDS Wine Country Chapter Showcase House in the Montecito Estates of Santa Rosa, California. The proceeds from the 5000 sq. foot Showcase House went to a cause dear to her heart; benefiting “Boost Camp” an organization founded by Suzie McBride IDS. Boost Camp enables children with Cerebral Palsy to attend a designated summer camp.

Her photographer, Timothy Manning, was recently recognized for his photography of some of her work.

Corey is a native of Auburn Alabama, (AU), her father’s alma mater. His engineering career relocated her family to California in the 60’s, but the love of the south still lives on in distant memories.

Presently, Corey is semi-retired and works alongside seven dynamic designers in the new concept to completion showroom of Nina Amouris in Walnut Creek. She is launching her own e-commerce store in May 2014 which will encompass a fabulous collection of large scale canvas giclee paintings.

Corey will happily share her portfolio video or a video of her art collection for your consideration.

With three decades experience I share with you the successes and lessons learned in helping my clients find that perfect balance of space, proportion, color and texture.

Our combined goal is to reflect your personality, the aspirations for your home or office, and create that environment that allows you to thrive. I listen to you, I work side-by-side with you, and together we create a living or working space that fills your needs.

Our combined efforts may focus on a settee, a quiet nook, a room or a whole house or office. The size of the endeavor matters less than achieving the feel you want. It may be a sanctuary to relax, a space to share with loved ones and friends or a professional venue that allows you to achieve your best work.

Remember a space is just a space until you imbue it wit h personality. That’s my mission. Together we make the magic happen.

Steven Edward Wallace


Steven Edward Wallace Design has been creating beautiful and livable interiors for over 25 years, with a portfolio that includes over 100 projects in southern California as well as Arizona, New York, Florida and Las Vegas. Since relocating from Los Angeles to the San Francisco Bay Area nine years ago, I have added a growing clientele base in the East Bay, San Francisco and Silicon Valley. In addition, I had the great fortune to be the exclusive designer in a house “flipping” partnership, completing over 20 homes in Los Angeles, Orange County and Palm Springs.

With an extensive background in construction, renovation, architecture and art history, I visualize and target multiple levels of a design challenge to create a lifestyle aesthetic specific to each client. I take pride in carefully guiding a client from project conception to completion, being their liaison with workmen and contractors along the way to ensure a “stress-less” experience.

My commitment to my clients results in outstanding customer service, centered on creating viable solutions that deliver an environment that makes a house more than a home – a haven from the world, a place to relax and recharge as well as enjoy with family and friends.

My clients often tell me how much they enjoy our working relationship. In fact, I have a few families that I have had the pleasure of designing multiple spaces over many years – from their first home to spaces that accommodate a growing family.

I believe in design concepts that are minimal, modern, clean lined and functional with emphasis on the client’s unique personality and history. I love mixing old with new, family treasures with new acquisitions, bold color and monochromatic schemes. Creativity comes from many sources: travel, nature, art, literature and the fabric of the world we live in.

In my profession, the highest accolade to hear is when a client tells me 5 years or more after we’ve completed a project, that they still love the space and embrace its timeless, classic style.
