"When we bought our house and were considering design and decorating needs, my first response was "oh, I can do this myself!" However, being that this home is not our primary residence and we live in another state, I was concerned with how to approach it from afar - and to do it efficiently and keep an eye on costs.
I began to research professionals on Houzz who could help us with our project. Pretty quickly I zeroed in on Design Vision Studio. The photos that they posted on their site were terrific and I felt that Patricia and Kym would be a good fit for us - so off we went to talk with Patricia and Kym and to engage DVS's services!
Here are some things I would say about Patricia and Kym:
- They got to know us personally before beginning the project - to understand what we were like and to know how we planned to use our spaces.
- While we live in the home a good deal of the time, it is also used as rental property and we didn't want to go over the top financially. We wanted it to be very comfortable and homey, but also to attract vacation rentals. Our final result is fantastic and renters compliment it all of the time!
- They listened to us if we had alternate ideas or challenged a particular decision on something. And they were certainly responsive if we had an issue.
- While we didn't necessarily have a budget, they were cost conscious in recommending selections and options. They helped my husband have a comfort level that by using DVS's contacts in the industry, we were getting great value on our purchases.
- My tendency is to go with 'safe and neutral' pieces [furniture, artwork, etc.]. However, Patricia & Kym pushed us a bit out of our comfort zone on a few pieces in order to make a 'wow' statement in the room. I am so glad that we just trusted their judgment and let them do it! Even the furniture delivery guys made comments on some of the cool pieces.
Plus, they're fun ladies to work with!
In summary, we now have a gorgeous home that we are proud of - and we love being there. We get amazing feedback from guests who see the final result. Would we work with Patricia and Kym again on a future project? Most definitely. Now if I can convince my husband to let me do it again…..!"
Mike & Celeste, La Quinta
"We had our Design Vision Visit (consultation) and received direction on how to bring an overall sense of design to our living areas when we saw none. Our favorite outcome was the excellent suggestions for design solutions using our existing furniture and how to add some color to tie everything together. We also received valuable advice for our furniture placement along with key, small but significant changes and additions. If you are considering hiring Design Vision Studio we say "DO IT!" It's worth every penny."
Bob & Deanna, Indian Wells
"Well, after doing 14 homes in 25 years we thought we knew it all. Patricia and her team proved they could "one up" us as they came in and rolled up their sleeves and overhauled our home. Needless to say, we were blown away by the results of the project."
Jim & Sharon, Indio
"Design Vision Studio did an amazing job designing our space to compliment the re-branding of our fitness business. We have experienced an increase in revenue and our members are thrilled with the results.
Patricia and her team were extremely easy to work with and thorough. I am very busy throughout the day and I do not have a lot of time to put into our design. They took over control and did a fantastic job. I couldn't be happier. Not to mention the team are funny, friendly and just good people. Thank you very much."
Gerry - Fit in 42 Studio on El Paseo
"My Name is Jason. I am part owner in a small studio gym in Palm desert CA called Fit in 42 El Paseo!
Patricia is one in a million. She not only got our concept for our new studio but she actually opened our eyes to an elegant and professional new design for our studio.
She helped us keep the gym vibe but also but also gave the studio some life and energy through her uplifting design.
Patricia is really just an amazing person all round. She really listens and and works with you to make your vision become a reality.
Patricia you are amazing and this new design is going to help us create a real brand."
Jason, Fit in 42 Studio on El Paseo
"I've known Patricia Lockwood for a few years now and her designs are absolutely incredible! She is incredibly talented, and uses all types of medium for her projects, is a pro at colors and how to use them where, along with textures and designs, we love her and all she does!"
"I must share that we've received a lot of really positive comments about our home. Vacation PS, along with my kids and now a couple of repeat renters all describe our home as "fresh", "easy to live in" and "love the colour palette"…. more, but those are the words that get said repeatedly. My middle son who is the realtor and home stager was blown away at what the house looked like when we bought it, to the end inside product and new landscaping. The landscaping for sure really 'woke up" the outside feel. Anyway, you were such a breath of fresh air to meet - and so incredibly helpful. We feel so grateful for all that you did for us."
Clive & Deirdre, Palm Desert
"Design Vision Studio did a great job for us, from listening to what we generally had in mind, to creating a more open, airy space, to making inspired selections that were sensitive to our budget, and to selecting and supervising contractors and vendors who put everything into action! We have a real California place now!"
John & Michele, Palm Desert
"Working with Vision Design (formally Lockwood Interiors) has been a great experience for me. Services were provided by the owner, Patricia and her business partner Kym. The team is very skilled at internalizing your taste, style, and personality into a beautiful design. Their attention to detail, design ideas and understanding of my needs helped to transform my home from a very traditional residence into a modern, trendy, and functional California home! The design ideas recommended were exceptional and harmonized all rooms throughout my entire home. It was particularly interesting to me in that there were a few design ideas I wasn't quite sure of and when the work was completed I loved it! I also appreciated how the team incorporated previously owned furnishings that were important to me into their design. The customer service was exceptional and they were very responsive to questions and my needs. Additionally, they went the extra mile in suggesting some color advice and direction for my home exterior...thanks!!! I would definitely work with them again. Congratulations and well done!!!"
"Kym... wow... You and your team should be very proud of yourself for the incredible home that you created for this old sports fan. Thank you for making it all happen."
Dave, Palm Desert
"My wife and I bought a vacation home in the desert in February which posed a problem. We wanted to renovate the entire home but were returning to Illinois soon and wouldn't be around until December and wanted to return with it totally renovated. Well we were fortunate to discover Patricia and Kym from DVS. Before leaving for the season they presented a plan with full visuals and examples and budget. We returned in December and WOW !!!!! It is beautiful we love it and don't even want to leave the house. They were very organized and it was so easy to make decision. You might say painless if possible. We only have two complaints. First with Patricia, it's her hair. Sometimes it sticks straight up to the sky. Finally figured out that is what happens when she gets excited and starts a project and then when completes the project. Then there is Kym. Everyone is familiar with TGIF. Well she has an awkward twist to that or is just confused. She believes in TBIF ! Too Bad It's Friday! And if that's not enough when Monday rolls around she comes up with TGIM! Well if you can work through these two issues we would highly recommend DVS. You'll love the results."
Bob & Cindy, Palm Desert
"Patricia and Kym are absolutely wonderful to work with! I have worked with Design Vision Studios on a couple of projects and they go above and beyond for the clients find the perfect fit and making there dreams come true. They both have such fun personalities and very professional and experts at what they true! They are a truly an inspiration."
Berndt Heidemann, Artist
"Patricia is the one person I do not have to worry about when I do a project. She meets her time lines with exquisite detail. I love working with her."
"We engaged Design Vison Studio to do a complete remodel and refurnish of a 1200 square feet condo. We were very pleased with the professionalism and the quality of service received. Our input was carefully considered and their initial design was exactly what we imagined. Their fees were reasonable and very clearly related to us as they occurred. The work of their contractors was first class. We would certainly use them again if the occasion arose."
Ken & Jan, Palm Desert
"I hired Patricia to do an upscale remodel of an expensive home. She hit the ball out of the park. The house looked amazing and livable once completed. Not too artsy, but heavy on classy. She exceeded my expectations. So much so, that I hired her to buy furniture for me as well. I could not believe how amazing everything looked when she was done. I will keep working with Patricia in the future. She is professional and treats your project as if it is the most important thing she is working on."
Chris, Rancho Mirage
"In less than an hour Kym helped us make some quick changes to stage the condo we wanted to sell, and then created a plan for updating the new home we were buying in affordable stages. In the desert, many homes are purchased furnished. Kym helped us maximize or update what we "inherited," recommend high impact (yet not necessarily expensive) changes and negotiate/navigate the inevitable husband/wife "I love it/I hate it" decisions. She has amazing listening skills and presents a variety of options with rationale that connects to both the left brain logical and right brain creative clients. Thank you for helping us turn our new house into our treasured home."
John & Terri, La Quinta
"I had a pleasure working with Kym C. I found Kym knowledgeable, helpful with her suggestions and very accommodating. The contractor she recommended was friendly and very competent. The project got done on time and I am very pleased with the result. Thank you, Kym. Design Vision Studio for Lockwood gets my highest recommendation!"
Louisa, Indian Wells
"The project involved a total demolition of a 3 bedroom 2 bath 2,000 sq foot home in a 20 year old gated community.
We provided Lockwood with little direction other than to describe we wanted a clean, simple, "California fresh" look. We gave them a swatch of quilting fabrics and a new bedspread for color ideas.
Lockwood provided a pallet of color, textures and finishes, a furniture layout plan and a kitchen design supplier. They guided us through furniture selection. They presented a complete package of lighting, flooring, paint and accessories. If there was any one piece we did not like, they went back and found another excellent choice. Other times, they remained firm on certain elements.... After all, they are the designers and they were right!
Patricia, Kym and Sarah were excited about our project. Their enthusiasm made the process fun for us. They made effective use of our time when decisions were required. They executed ordering, delivery and set up thoroughly and efficiently.
While there were two minor glitches, Lockwood worked with the contractor to resolve the problems as effectively as possible to our satisfaction.
Our home has a coordinated and consistent design look and feel. We are very happy clients."
Ken & Betty Jane, Indio
"My husband and I just completed gutting, re-designing and furnishing our 1800 sq. ft. home in Palm Desert. We hired Patricia and Kym based on recommendations we read on the Internet. We interviewed them on the phone and went with our instincts! We were not misguided. They came up with the entire new floor plan, suggested an awesome contractor and guided us through the selection of colours, fabrics, flooring, tiling, accessories and every other necessity that comes with doing an entire home. They were always open to hearing our views and suggestions and many times re-iterated that this was "our" home, not theirs. The project came in on budget and within the time frame quoted. As we were not present for much of the construction and finishing of this project, Patricia and Kym were instrumental in making sure the project went forward in a timely manner and regularly checked up on the job. I can't recommend them highly enough."
Dan & Elaine, Palm Desert
"Our experience with Design Vision Studio has been fantastic. Kym, our designer, was so great at working with us and listening to our needs. The best part of hiring DVS was the professionals they worked with to do our remodel. This alone was worth the price of their services. I would highly recommend them."
Jim & Vikki, Rancho Mirage
" I contacted Lockwood Interiors after reading the many positive reviews here. I was looking for a professional design team that could partner with me to update my newly purchased home in La Quinta. I met with several firms while I was in town and ultimately was most impressed with Kym from Lockwood who was extremely professional in our initial consultation. She had a prepared list of questions to get to know me better and clarify my expectations for the project.
Other firms I interviewed, while I'm sure they were qualified, did not give me the sense of being as organized, which was especially important to me given that I live out of town and needed solid local coordination. I appreciated Lockwood's billing model which is based on consulting hours with no markup for specific furniture recommendations. Given that this was my first time working with a designer team, this was a big plus for me.
The Lockwood team introduced me to an outstanding contractor to execute our vision, who did a phenomenal job. This alone saved me a ton of time and effort to vet out local contractors. Ultimately, while over my initial budget, the end result exceeded my expectations. Now I really don't mind the eight hour drive from San Francisco!"
Scott, La Quinta
"Lockwood Interiors is top notch! Talk about attention to detail. Their purchasing process is so easy and accurate. Patricia and Kym have two different styles but it works. I love working with them both on projects. They are always fun and pleasant. The LOVE what they do and it shows. Anything I need is always just a phone call away. I truly appreciate your business over the years! I can’t wait to work on more projects with you."

"Patricia Lockwood of Lockwood Interiors is absolutely amazing! Patricia recently redesigned our kitchen and her vision resulted in the TOTAL transformation of our inefficient closed-in design, to a beautiful open and efficient floor plan. We not only gained the functionality that we needed but also gained the "wow factor" from the moment you enter our home. The redesign of our kitchen made us feel like we gained a new house. Patricia has an eye for design that makes you excited to see her vision become reality. We were excited about her design but the final product was so much more than we imagined. This has been our fourth project with Lockwood Interiors and each project has exceeded our expectations. We can't thank Lockwood interiors enough and we will certainly use Patricia and her team for any of our future home design needs."
Steve and Stacy, Cathedral City
"Patricia is a joy to work with, her work is beautiful, functional, and her design sense is amazing. As a photographer, I love seeing her vision of what a space can be. From smaller jobs to removing walls, she makes wonderful things happen."
Louis G. Weiner Photography
"Lockwood Interiors was an absolute pleasure to work with. Patricia and her team worked on our project over a three year period. During this time, we completely remodeled and redecorated our home. She was able to interpret both of our visions and help create a plan to execute the home of our dreams. Lockwood Interiors brought clarity, organization, and excellence to an overwhelming project. For us, making the choice to invest time and money in to rebuilding our home was a difficult one. However, the best decision we made was hiring Lockwood Interiors. We recently finished the final project on our home and could not be happier with the results. Our experience with Lockwood Interiors was nothing short of excellent. Everyone we worked with was extremely competent and professional. Patricia Lockwood is an immensely talented designer and we are happy to recommend her. "
Scott & Christina, Indian Wells
"We knew it was only a matter of time before the rest of the world discovered you two! Just want you to know we feel powerless without your guidance. Please know that what you have done for us is most amazing. We love our home, thanks to you two."
Dave & Al, Palm Springs
"Patricia and her team were absolutely amazing. They worked within my budget and created a design that was fresh and bright. They were creative and always available to answer any questions that I had about the project, even at odd hours. They can also work with a variety of styles and will modify their approach depending on the needs of the client. I would recommend them to anyone for any project - large or small."
Matt, Palm Springs
"We planned to renovate a small vacation condominium and Lockwood Interiors guided us through every phase of this project. They spent a great deal of time getting to know us and what we were looking for, provided us with a plan and options, and executed the project with brilliant creativity and professionalism. We highly recommend their services."
John & Susan, La Quinta
"I cant say enough good things about Patricia Lockwood….she is a talented wonderful designer and just a good person!!!! Her expertise saved us a ton of money. She is fun to work with and her sources are incredible. Each and every person she referred did a great job. We were pedal to the metal for six months and she was with us every step of the way. We love our home and we give Patricia huge credit for that. Without Patricia to fall back on we would have had a disaster!!!! Thank you Patricia!!!! "
Don & Brenda, La Quinta
"By truly understanding our design aesthetic and employing her wealth of experience, Patricia has turned our house into a world class home we love living and entertaining in. Her unique eye for art and design took our home to a whole new level of sophistication and comfort and most importantly, it felt and looked like us. Patricia strives to establish a partnership throughout the design process and listens along the way. This working relationship built on mutual respect and trust enabled us to join our visions and turn them into a reality, beyond what we could have ever imagined doing on our own."
Carter, Santa Monica
"We live in Canada and having Lockwood Interiors (Patricia and Kym) take care of our long distance renovation in La Quinta, California was the best decision we could ever have made. The process was seamless, Patricia hired an amazing contractor, we had regular communication and Patricia was open to all our ideas. Our home went from an 80’s nightmare to a modern, bright, fresh looking home. Their integrity was second to none. Knowing that your designer has your best interests at heart takes away a lot of stress. For new clients I have to say that if you increase your budget it’ll be your idea not Patricia’s. She is very responsible with the set budget. Patricia and Kym have a really good eye for what will work and it’ll never be "boring".
So happy to call them our friends after this experience."
Ron & Lynne, La Quinta
"I have worked with Lockwood Interiors on projects throughout the Coachella Valley and find them to be highly professional, easy to work with and imaginative designers. I highly recommend them to anyone. They make my work look GREAT! "
Laura Janes, Artist
"As a industry professional, I've had the pleasure and honor of working with Patricia and her firm on several projects. Lockwood Interiors is at the Top in their field, talented, creative, attentive to detail and above all holds her client first and foremost in mind!! Without a doubt, one of the most professional firms I've had the pleasure to work with."
Bill, Quintessential Designs In Cabinetry
"To say Patricia is the ultimate professional is truly an understatement. Her work was timely, complete, and exceeded my expectations on so many levels. Most importantly, Patricia was able to listen to my ideas, wants and needs and then provide the exact style and decorating options customized for my home. She truly turned my house into the most comfortable home I have ever owned. I would highly recommend her opinions and services to anyone!"
"We enjoyed working with Patricia. She was professional in every aspect of design and being able to create an integrated theme in order to take our vision to reality. With her as a partner we were able to transform a basic tract home into a unique, custom California hacienda. Her attention to detail and interpersonal style were excellent in every way and we highly recommend Patricia."
Dave & Carol, Rancho Mirage
"My husband and I called Patricia in a bit of a panic, after attempting design work ourselves! She came to our rescue and was very efficient with time and our money. She appreciated our budget and worked very hard to get all we wanted done! She was always available for a quick call and answered questions either on the phone, texting or email, which was very convenient. We would highly recommend her services to anyone needing professional advice!"
Pam & Doug, Bermuda Dunes
"I hired Lockwood Interiors twice within the last several years for help with two different homes. I find myself attracted to unique spaces that on the whole don’t reflect my personal style. Since I don’t have the design sense to blend my tastes within these unique spaces, I hired Lockwood Interiors to help. They worked tirelessly to find solutions that truly expressed my taste and personality, all while saving me money! I recommend Lockwood Interiors for any job. You won’t be sorry!"
Mike & Lisa, Seattle
"We feel so lucky that we hired Lockwood Interiors! The ability to beautifully furnish our home from a distance is what we value the most from our design and remodeling experience. We appreciated your honesty, advice and ability to find good, and reasonably priced furnishings. You listened to us while providing great service and made the experience painless and fun. "
Brian, Susan & Sally, La Quinta

Jose Reynoso, JR Home Improvements Inc.
"Patricia Lockwood is one of the most gifted artists and designers I have ever met. On a personal note she transformed my new condo a few years ago into a beautiful living space. Her brilliant eye knew exactly what to do with every room and found everything for me at amazing prices! On a business level Patricia played a key role in defining the line of pillows and runners for my company, Deseo Textiles; she designed a specific size pillow; which is one of my best selling items. Deseo Textiles continues to benefit from Patricia’s expertise. She is truly an asset to my personal and business life! "
Karin, Los Angeles
"It was an exceptional experience working with Lockwood Interiors. We valued Kym’s creative expertise and her ability to connect to our tastes, needs, wants and financial limitations. The discounts from your partnership contractors were an added bonus. All the trades people you recommended were extremely professional and performed exemplary work. We love the results."
Bob & Kathy, Palm Desert
"We have worked with Lockwood Interiors several times over the years to help us remodel our casita, install new tile in our master bathroom and design a custom live edge and glass dining table for our home. Everything turned out fantastic and exceeded our expectations. They listened to our requests, had timely communication and produced the "WOW" factor. Lockwood Interiors has talented designers with great resources and connections to accomplish our goals and dreams. "
Eduard & Betsy, La Quinta
"Patricia and Kym totally transformed our vacation home into a contemporary decorated and furnished home with lots of color and the WOW factor ! They found some really unique great pieces at reasonable prices. They provided a binder with design pieces for each room and layout - So Professional! "
Scott & Marilyn, Rancho Mirage
"Redecorating our home in Indian Wells was a lot simpler with Patricia’s help. Not only was she able to help with quality decorating ideas but she also was able to guide us to the proper contractors and then oversee the actual work when we were not "in residence." We were so thankful to have found Patricia!! "
Butch & Margaret, Indian Wells
"I feel very lucky to have discovered Lockwood Interiors. At my wit’s end after several unsuccessful meetings with interior designers, Patricia entered my life in the nick of time with affordable fees and sage advice.
I purchased a relatively new home in La Quinta that I fell in love with for its floor plan and location. The downside was that it came with a traditional or Italianesque persuasion and my tastes run more contemporary or Bohemian. My goal was to tastefully incorporate my style into this home without the greater expense of starting over. I also had some very sketchy ideas about how I’d like to improve the courtyard and master bathroom.
Patricia walked me through the process of blending paint colors to complement the home’s mixture of granite, tumbled marble, brick, carpeting, cherry wood cabinetry and white molding with my contemporary art and furniture pieces. To complete the task, Patricia hired a fantastic faux painter to create interesting texture or layering on specific ceilings and walls. I wasn’t in La Quinta for most of the work… but no worries… she managed everything. I showed up now and then to approve the work. Done!
After the painting was complete, she further transformed the home with a few more pieces of furniture, new lighting and ceiling fans for every room; sliding wooden doors that double as art to create privacy between the bed chamber and the master bath and an upgraded courtyard fence with arched wrought iron gate and trellis system. Patricia did all of the shopping, designed the bedroom doors, fence and even some custom-made furniture. She recycled a pair of my armchairs (long out of favor) with new upholstery for use in the master bedroom. Perfect transformation!"
"The lighting is amazing… virtually pieces of art. I can’t be outside without compliments from passersby on my courtyard enclosure. She helped in so many areas I almost forgot to mention redesigning the built-in entertainment center. She added open bookshelves for warmth and enhanced the art niches with risers and up lighting to showcase my hand-blown glass collection. Again, she managed all of the ins and outs – woodworkers, electricians, upholsterers, ironworkers, and carpenters. I simply came by to enjoy the results."
"Oh, and did I mention one of the most important things… she saved me LOADS OF MONEY! I am very pleased and wouldn’t change a thing. If I had attempted this myself, I would already be starting over. Guaranteed!"
Lisa, La Quinta
"Patricia, thank you for making my house and property into an amazingly warm and inviting home, and a work area that just simply "works" exceptionally well. Yes, I know it has been over 8 years, however, to this day as I sit in my living room and gaze around, I still say those words that I said the first day, "I love my home." Your work is timeless.
My family and friends continue to remark on how inviting my home is. You truly have the "eye" for design and décor, but what’s more amazing is how you took my totally abstract ideas in terms of what ‘feeling’ I wanted in each room, the colors I liked, my ‘style’, and you created an incredible place for me.
Patricia, again, thank you for everything… your time, energy, creativity, and humor.
Lastly, your management of the entire project was invaluable! I LOVE MY HOME!!!"
"Joshua Desert Retreats literally grew from nothing out of the barren Mojave Desert to become a sought after lodging destination for Joshua Tree National Park visitors…
With sensitivity for the ‘non city’ experience I hoped for, you set out shopping for all manner of stuff. Wherever you came up with the most of the amazing accessories, artwork and furnishing, I’ll never know. One just can’t walk into any store and find the totally appropriate furnishings you installed in each home. With eager determination you placed everything just so. The photos were taken and placed on the web site promoting the properties and guess what happened? We booked up right away!
Guests told me they would spend weeks in anticipation consoling themselves looking at the pictures on the web site. When they arrived they would call me right away and say, "it’s so much better than the pictures! We never imagined it would be this nice." And I would never have imagined it turning out this great. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! "
Greg Davis of Gregory Davis & Associateson Patricia’s work with JOSHUA DESERT RETREATS, which have been featured in Style Section L.A. and the Escapes section of The New York Times.
"We would recommend Lockwood Interiors to anyone looking to completely remodel or simply add pieces to their current home. We hired Lockwood Interiors to help us downsize from a big family home to a 2 bedroom condo. Kym was always on time and full of ideas and fun to work with too. Kym gently guided us in the right direction by offering several alternatives and let us choose. She helped us select the perfect colors, furnishings and decor and we absolutely love everything."
Tom & Susan, La Quinta
"We contracted with Lockwood Interiors after downsizing to a new home. We needed help in transforming a simple track house interior into something that wowed and spoke to us.
Patricia hit it out of the park! We new we wanted crown molding throughout the home, but, beyond that we had no idea what to do. We needed help in choosing paint colors, furniture and to get ideas on how to swap out the living room and family room. We completely transformed the kitchen from blah and outdated to beautiful and a chiefs delight. Patricia eye for "what could be" went beyond our wildest dreams.
We left no space untouched by Patricia, from the transformation of the new family room with the large book cases and large screen television mounted on the stone wall, to the master bedroom with wallpaper on the ceiling and the sliding barn door. Even the small touches made a large difference, i.e. throw pillows and bedspreads. When people walk into our home it is like no other they have seen.
Oh, and by the way we still call Patricia for simple suggestions like what type of rug should we get for the round entryway of my home. We can’t be more pleased with her expertise and passion.
Thanks so much Lockwood Interiors, I have already made several recommendations for this company. "
Chris & Jeanne, Temecula
"Everyone asks, "Who decorated your home?" My answer is always the same –Lockwood Interiors!!!
For over ten years, Patricia has helped change my life with interior design. I used to live surrounded by WHITE walls and no personality – now I have COLOR, PERSONALITY and WARMTH in my HOME.
Whether it be with custom paint color schemes to complete home makeovers, Patricia has been the most friendly, professional and TALENTED designer I could have ever hoped to work with. I am amazed at how easy the process is, how affordable the final result is, and how pleased I am at the end result. I am always PROUD to welcome guests in my home. My experience and results have been worth every penny!!!"
Erin, Santa Barbara
"I’ve been painting in the desert for 21 years and by far Patricia Lockwood is the best designer I’ve worked for. She is very detailed and provides excellent color selections. She’s a "10" in a land of 6’s. "
Dan Westhoven Painting
"The word that comes to mind is WOW!
Patricia Lockwood has an eye for details and creativity of things my mind isn’t capable of dreaming up. We have been in our home for 12 years and now that Patricia has helped us redesign and refurnish our home, we really love spending time here! Patricia is an absolute professional and has excellent ideas and will give you all the details you need to make your house a home. I would highly recommend Patricia to any of my friends and family."
Steve & Stacy, Cathedral City
"Wow, Patricia Lockwood you have done it again! You are so creative and even without asking me for any ideas, you put together the most amazing office layout for me that fits our image and personality perfectly. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!"
Stacy at Thetford Web Development
"Looking to put our stamp on a partially furnished 2nd home, we hired Lockwood Interiors. Patricia was an excellent listener, creative, dependable and fun! She provided an organized and detailed design plan on how to proceed which I could do myself to best utilize Patricia’s time and expertise. Our favorite outcome is the way the house flows. Also, we love keeping in touch with the Lockwood Interiors monthly email and newsletter - so personal and informative. "
Steve & Sandy, Rancho Mirage
"Thank you, Patricia, for your vision. We came to you with a need and you brought your inspiration, keeping in mind our personalities. We now have areas in our home that reflect functionality as well as beauty. You walked with us every step of the way.
Each contractor was a professional, and our project was on budget and done on time."
Bob & Linda, La Quinta
"I could not have been happier with the way our home turned out with Patricia’s talent.
Thank you - Love Love Everything!"
Dick & Marina, Palm Desert
"What can I say about the total transformation of our home? We love it!
Lockwood Interiors did a fantastic job. Since we have a very modest 1400 square foot home, we use and live in every room. We have two teenage sons who wanted a home they did not feel like walking around eggshells in and worry about touching things. My husband and I wanted a home we could feel comfortable living in as well as entertaining friends and business associates. Patricia came up with the perfect combination, and we love it. Patricia transformed the inside and outside of our home from just “OK” looking into an EXCEPTIONAL looking home. Everyone tells us our home is classy and beautiful and we think so too. Thank you Patricia!"
Tim & Lyni, Yucca Valley
"We have been working with Lockwood Interiors for many years. Patricia is very competent and a pleasure to work with. Her jobs come out beautifully and we appreciate her confidence in our work. We highly recommend Lockwood Interiors for their excellent service and Patricia’s unique creative design skills."
Eric at Tomalak Tile & Stone
"Thank heavens for Patricia Lockwood and her genius! She transformed our dingy condo to a beachfront wonderland. With her guidance and wisdom we were able to navigate through the world of remodeling and redecorating. She is not only a gifted interior designer, she was able to assist us in blending our design asthetic with a calm demeanor, combined with an unbelievable sense of humor. We never could have done it without her! We have just purchased another vacation home and would not consider taking on the redesign without her by our side. She is a gem!!"

"Patricia is absolutely amazing!!! Her design ideas exceeded my expectations. She currently helped us transform my bedroom from boring to a paradise retreat and is currently working on a shared bedroom for both my son and daughter. She truely listens to the needs and wants of her customers. She was given a budget and she worked hard to put it all together. I would highly recommend her services and can’t wait to see the end results on our future projects together. "

"Retired. Wife & I staying in old family home. Needed to refresh but on a budget. Found Patricia. A most capable and talented designer. Creative to the core. Worked easily to our budget and gave us just what we wanted. She has a wonderful personality and great sense of style. Brought our old homestead up to date. Made it fresh and so comfortable to live in. Glad to give Patricia our unqualified recommendation."
Dixon & Linda, Tustin
"I used to live in a house where I thought I knew colors, then I met Patricia. She helped me make it into a wonderful home with warmth and colors. She has a sense of style and she has a way of making it feel like it was yours all along, but just waiting to be found. She is remarkable!"
Laura, La Quinta
"Wow, what a relief Patricia has been. My family moved to Huntington Beach a year ago, and love the location and neighborhood. But the house needed so much work that I couldn’t figure out where to start. Patricia to the rescue!!! She walked through the whole house with me and had excellent ideas for each room. While I haven’t been able to tackle all of them yet I now have a plan of action. She took into consideration our style and family life, and listened to all our likes and dislikes. The kitchen ended up being first on the list, and it is about half way done and amazing already! Patricia has been there for us every step of the way. For the big picture such as lay out, all the way down to the little stuff, like how to pick out knobs and pulls from of the thousands of choices out there. I could never have pulled this off by myself without going crazy. She is always calm and gets me back on track when I’m overwhelmed. If anyone needs help with their designs, I would highly recommend contacting Lockwood Interiors."
Dan & Jeanne, Huntington Beach
"From the first time we met Patricia, we knew she was the right person for the job. She was able to take our 21 year old home from 1990’s into the present era. She has an incredible eye for color and style while still taking into consideration our tastes. Whether choosing tile, grout, counter tops, window coverings or paint, she is a true design genius. We highly recommend Patricia!"
Chris & Justine, La Quinta
"We used Lockwood Interiors twice and were very happy with Patricia’s knowledge and professionalism. The first time she came over she helped me update several things and was very patient in selecting fabrics, etc. I am difficult to please but she "nailed" what I wanted and it was a very pleasant experience. The second time she helped me with several valances in my kitchen which I had been agonizing over for three years. We absolutely loved her selection. She also gave us valuable information each time she came to our home and we will use her in the future. My husband and I would both highly recommend Lockwood Interiors."

She is a professional in a aspects . I truly enjoy working with her and would highly recommend her."
Brad at Monterey Builders, Sky Valley
"I bought brand new home, and ask Patricia if she could help me out with paint colors. I not only got great color through out the home, but also did a fantastic job of designing every room. I couldn't be more happy with Patricia, she took into account my individual tastes so the house, would be MY home."

"I am so fortunate to have met Patricia of Lockwood Interiors at the time that I did. Last fall, I had a plumbing leak while being out of town which flooded 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, all of the closets, and all of the hallways of my home. Within days, I had people moving all of my belongings into storage. Dry wall, flooring, baseboards, bathroom vanities, and much more were completely demolished. I was left dealing with the insurance appraiser, insurance contractor, my contractor, asbestos workers, flood crew, termite guy, hotels, long term residence vendors, the mortgage carrier, my dogs… and my sanity (or lack of). I had EVERYTHING to remodel. So, I ventured out on my own and went to store after store after store (after store): paint stores, tile stores, online websites, lighting places, countertop warehouses, faucet places, flooring stores etc. Some would call this ’fun’ to go shopping to remodel, but doing all of these rooms all at one time had me stressed beyond what I was capable of. Enter Patricia Lockwood! Not only is Patricia incredibly easy to work with, she knows her stuff! As we started talking, I could see the wheels turn with ideas. She didn’t try to give me a ’style’ that wasn’t me, but rather listened to what over-all feeling I wanted and then gave me reasonable suggestions on how to achieve it that would fit my budget. She pulled together colors, textures, room lay-out for function, and design effortlessly. Her ability to translate what you want into actual rooms is fantastic. She is not only easy to work with, but has quite a sense of humor and my stress level went from ’out of control’ to ’wow, this is fun’. I would truly recommend Patricia for any design job. "
Dawn, Dana Point
"I first worked with Patricia at Lockwood quite a few years ago. I love her work ethics! She passes on the discounts and deals she receives to her customers (you never see this happening) which helps her them save a little here and there. She completely revamped our house and we worked hand and hand with her in a design that worked for us and the outcome is AMAZING! I have referred her to a few individuals who have thanked me time and time again for the great job she’s done on their home. It’s such a great feeling to hear the excitement in my friends voices when someone has complimented them on Patricia’s design and the outcome of their projects. She’s simply the best! "
Terry & Barbara, Long Beach
"Lockwood Interiors provided an affordable, updated design for our home that is has a warm and comfortable look and feel. Patricia Lockwood listens and delivers. Our favorite outcome of our project was being able to merge the new and old into a great look. "
Chris & Cathy, Indian Wells
"It was just a shot in the dark when we selected an interior design consultant from the Internet for our secondary home in La Quinta but we really lucked out with Patricia. Her professionalism, integrity, promptness and attention to detail and budgeting was evident from the beginning. We also really appreciated the fact that she didn’t try to "dictate" design, decorating and furniture choices but rather worked with our ideas and preferences while still maintaining enough guidance to ensure a great result. Patricia even referred us to maintenance and repair people who were awesome and who we still use today. You won’t go wrong with Lockwood Interiors! "
