Lawanna Cathleen Turner recalls a magical walk down the Champs Elysees towards the Arc de Triomphe as the moment she committed her career to interior design. Having studied interior architecture and art history in Paris and Aix En Provence France, it was that moment that Lawanna decided how to focus her passion for interior design upon returning to San Francisco. After completing her first San Francisco Decorator Showcase House in 2005, Lawanna opened her namesake firm Lawanna Cathleen Design with impressive accolades - her first project was featured on the cover of California Homes magazine, making her the youngest designer ever on their cover. Along with acting as the principal designer and CEO of her own firm, Lawanna also lent her talent to Restoration Hardware’s corporate HQ for two years, where she developed the company’s interior design program.


Deeply influenced by art, travel, and music, Lawanna Cathleen Design is known for creating sophisticated personal spaces that intuitively reflect a homeowner's passion and personality. Hallmarks of her design include a love of color, textiles, balanced space planning, and a unique eye for mixing old and new. Armed with a strong understanding of the fine art and antique market, Lawanna has worked with a range of clients - from glamorous fashion designer, Jessica McClintock to modern Silicon Valley CEOs - on various projects around the globe, including Carmel Valley, Napa Wine Country, Los Angeles, Missouri Ozarks, and London. Clients appreciate Lawanna's ability to truly listen to their needs, offer creative solutions to design dilemmas, and create luxurious environments that are innovative and unique to the client's home and lifestyle. Lawanna truly believes that a home should be a place of familiarity and function, full of special things collected throughout a lifetime that tell a story about the owner.


When not working, you can find Lawanna entertaining guests at fabulous themed soirees, frequenting art galleries and museums, hiking near the ocean, or dancing with her beautiful daughter, whose creative mind always acts as her true inspiration.
