Aubree Mendez

I’m originally from Orange County, California and have been living in Santa Barbara for the past six years. I initially moved here seeking a career in Sports Medicine, but decided that wasn’t the route for me. Drawn to the design industry I enrolled into the interior design program at Santa Barbara City College and started an internship with Christina Rottman Designs. Here, I gained perspective on design was encouraged to be creative and express myself through design, while developing resourcefulness, patience and most of all persistence. Interior design has been such a positive experience in my life, I am still currently enrolled in the design program and pursuing a career as a certified Interior Designer.

I like creating a timeless space with a mixture of natural lighting, rich colors, nature inspired materials and organic elements with a sense of sophistication.

Riley Hammond

My name is Riley Hammond, and I’ve been a local here in SB for 21 years. I’ve been attending SBCC for the past 4 years with my focus in Architecture and Interior Design. In the next year I hope to transfer to an undergrad architecture program where I can continue my passion for overall design. Design shouldn’t end with the building which is why having knowledge of both architecture and interior design has been important for me. This method also helps to achieve a complete vision. Over time I’ve realized that design can be much more than aesthetics, and what becomes most important is the balance between beauty, functionality, and comfort.

Cindy Daly

My name is Cindy Daly. I am from Ventura and I have been a graphic artist for over 20 years. I started taking Interior Design classes because my daughter, who is an Interior Designer, wanted to start her own business and I wanted to help her and be a part of it. She sent me back to school to learn about Interior Design and what it entails.
As I was taking my classes, I found that I really liked the different aspects of Interior Design. I loved learning the computer programs CAD and Revit and the language of drafting. I also loved being creative when designing spaces, adding color and furnishings and picking materials and finishes. Right now I am getting ready to remodel my own home and have been able to use some of the skills that I have learned from my classes and my daughter. I figure that if I can remodel my own home, I can definitely help other people remodel their homes. I see myself helping my daughter in her business in the future and also taking on my own clients.
As to my personal style in Interior design, I love a casual, eclectic, bohemian, rustic feel. I think a combination of these styles is where my strengths lie. I tend to pay close attention to details in my approach to Interior Design and I feel like this is a great talent that helps pull a room or a project together. There are so many pieces to the puzzle when creating or updating a space. Being detail oriented helps to make sure that nothing is forgotten. Finally, I love being able to combine both the technical and the creative aspects of Interior Design when creating a space. For me, this is the best of both worlds.

Edgar Cruz

My name is Edgar Cruz, I am originally from Michoacán, Mexico. I moved to the US at the age of 13, now living in Oxnard California. I graduated with an A.S. Degree from Oxnard College, my first major was psychology. I took some time off and realized psychology wasn’t my passion. I chose to do something in the design field and chose interior design. That is the reason why i started attending SBCC because they offer a degree and certification for interior design.

My love for art, fashion, and different cultures are my inspiration for interior design. I love the details that art has to offer and the story it tells once its finished. Inspiration is all over the place from the minimalist to the extravagant.

Interior design changed my life because it has brought me many opportunities. One I like to mention is the chance to participate and design a space for Santa Barbara Design Center. Also, thanks to interior design, I graduated to a new interest which is architecture. I now plan to get my bachelors in architecture as well as a certificate in interior design.

My personal interior design style is eclectic. I like to take risks and incorporate different styles that normally don’t go together. I like to play with different shapes, colors, fabrics, materials, and textures.

-Edgar Cruz.
