Ms. Parisa O’Connell -- originally from London, England -- truly has interior design in her blood. Stemming from a family established in the design industry, Parisa grew up around her Father’s flair for upscale hotel refurbishment, combined with her Mother’s exquisite taste in furniture and antiques, Parisa’s love for architecture and design blossomed.
Parisa’s fascination with design led her to the University of Leeds, where she excelled in the study of Fine Arts, as well as History of Art. She coupled her European education with a degree in Art Studies from UCLA in the U.S., and Interior Design at San Francisco's Academy of Art University, where she has remained a loyal California resident ever since.
After college, Parisa joined the San Francisco design firm, McCartan, where she began working on the interior design of several high-end hotels and restaurants in San Francisco, New York and beyond. Her influence has been seen and experienced in fine establishments such as Hotel Vitale and restaurant Americano along San Francisco’s chic Embarcadero neighborhood. In 2008 Parisa O'Connell Interior Design was established and has been creating beautiful interiors ever since.
Parisa’s philosophy of merging the old with the new, placing organic reclaimed materials with striking modern elements and drawing inspiration from her culturally diverse background creates unique, comfortable and elegant interiors.
