Kudos from Clients
Muchas gracias for the fantatico courtyard
wall fountain that you created for our Spanish Colonial home
in San Clemente.
I can't begin to tell you how much pleasure the fountain is giving us. We start
the day hearing the sound of water before we open the courtyard doors, we enjoy
all our meals looking at the beautiful tile and the play of water, and at night
the lights illuminate the tile and dance on the walls. Outdoor entertaining is
so much more pleasurable with the fountain providing a beautiful focal point.
Kristi, your services have been perfect from the initial consultation, through
the selection of custom tile that we could never find on our own, through the
supervision of the contractor at each stage of construction, to your final touches. And,
oh yes, your prices are more than fair.
We will enjoy the Talavera fountain every day, and remain very grateful for your

Kristi, I am so grateful that I "surfed" into
your website at the very beginning of this renovation project,
when I only had the glimmer of an idea about how I wanted to
change my newly purchased Huntington Beach tract house into fully
accessible, low-maintenance retirement home along the lines of
a 1920's Spanish Colonial cottage or a Baja vacation villa.
You held me close with support and encouragement during
the frustrating searches for an architect and contractor, the
turmoil of construction, the stressful days of my granddaughter's
illness, the confusing days of decisions, decisions, decisions!
You gave me so much more than a beautiful tile design for my
kitchen and two baths. Innumerable hours of planning, recommendations,
shopping and reassurance throughout the house – and at
a price amazingly more reasonable than many of the other pros
whose services were needed to complete this custom home. My little "Casita
de Mama" feels like a warm and welcoming Cabo San Lucas
retreat and I enjoy showing it off to all who come to admire.
You were my loyal companion from start to finish. It's a pleasure
to see photos of the finished project on your beautiful website.

After seeing the Mexican tile fountain design
that you created for my daughter, I knew that your work was just
what we needed to give our condominium kitchen a custom look. Our
kitchen was boring, I knew that I needed color, and you were
the only one to do it.
I am more than pleased with the finished
product—the colors are perfect for our house; you designed
it with my traditional American design style in mind, using the
colors that I wanted. In addition to loving the design
, I really appreciated that you checked the tile work by the
contractor, and that when the work was not up to the quality
standards that you expected, you made the contractor come back
to clean up the work.
I would unconditionally recommend both your artistry and your oversight of the
Thank you for making my kitchen fun.

How can we begin to thank you for transforming
our somewhat nondescript house into a magically warm and inviting
home. Although our busy lifestyles do not permit us to travel the
world as much as we want, simply moving from room to room in our
house becomes a journey to the French countryside, an exotic Asian
bazaar, or a sunny Mexican casita. Thank you for quickly zeroing
in on a decor that would "fit" for us, for making the
process a pleasure, and for creating an environment that we are
proud of and love to spend time in.

"Thanks so much for transforming my dull patio area into
a bright and tranquil oasis. Kristi, I will continue to recommend
you to all who admire my backyard's "new look"!

We love the "English" atmosphere you created in our
bedrooms and living room, and still feel like we're in someone
else's house! Thanks for a job well done, and under our budget
Martha, Encinitas, CA
I absolutely love the new, fresher, cleaner, brighter look of
my home. It's a real pleasure to walk into the different rooms
and enjoy their elegant simplicity. The living room and dining
room are open and airy, and display all my favorite treasures to
best advantage. The guest bedroom, what I now call the "harem
room," blends function with an intriguing display of artifacts
from my world travels. I've received many compliments on the new
decor. Thanks so much, Kristi, for your unique viewpoint and innovative

"Kristi, I just love the fireplace! The beautiful Mexican tile mural with
the tile borders and red paint on the bricks, really warms up the entire living
room. The colors match the rug, curtains and pillows perfectly pulling the whole
room together. You and Ian did such a superior job, not only installing the tiles,
but also the immaculate cleanup. I would recommend your work to anyone!"

"Once in a while, we meet someone that is so good at what they do, that
we feel very confident about recommending them. In fact, Kristi has become part
of the Baja Relocation family. She has a home in Las Gaviotas that she has transformed
into a real "Mexican casa". Everyone who visits, goes away with a feeling
that they have seen something very special.
Kristi and her husband Ian, live part-time here and part-time in Orange County.
However, anyone can see, their hearts are in Mexico! So, if you are buying
a new casa or just want to make a few exciting changes to the home you already
have, "Just ask Kristi". She and her variety of local contacts, will
be happy to help you!"
