"Having successfully worked with Anjum Razvi on three previous projects, I was confident that with her qualifications as a trained architect she would do a great job for the Pickwick Hotel renovation project. Working on an eighty year old hotel presented many challenges which she creatively overcame. This was a $16,500,000.00 project and took a year to complete. Anjum was an asset to our design team and was able to deliver the project on time and on budget.
The renamed Sofia Hotel has been very well received by our guests and it is in great part due to the warm and comfortable ambience of the hotel interior”.

“It is with great pleasure that I recommend Anjum Razvi whom I have known for the past 4 years.
Anjum has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, ambition, and creativity. She is wonderful to work with. Her ability to adapt to her clients needs is remarkable as is her ability to work within budgetary constraints. She has proven her leadership and ability by consistently providing great solutions in the design of our hotel. I am certain the great success The Sofia Hotel is now experiencing is largely because her design resonates so well within our guest experience.
Anjum is a joy to work with and we would welcome the opportunity to work with her in the future."
"As a high-end custom home builder in the Del Mar-La Jolla
area, we have been very fortunate to have Anjum Razvi as our exclusive
Interior Designer. Our market is in the $1.5M and up range, and
we depend on the expertise of Anjum to design the house with not
only the design in mind but also taking into consideration our high-end
clientele. She has been a sheer delight to work with and her keen
eye and talent are beyond our expectations. She not only does the
interior, but has helped us with the exterior design as well as
the architectural layout. Our finished projects are a tribute to
her skills. Anyone would do well to have her in their designing

“Our remodel project consisted of a complete renovation of
our entire house. Wow! It was quite extensive and changed our home
from a very dated 1970's look to a light and bright soft-contemporary
home that we love."
"We were already working with our contractor, and we needed
a designer to help with the many detailed design items yet to be
done. We hired Anjum after meeting her on a kitchen design tour,
and soon learned how much Anjum brought to the job. It was clear
that Anjum had many years of design experience, which is critical
in a designer. This is what you're paying for... certainly not trial
"Anjum always came to our meetings totally prepared. She had
our color swatches, fabrics pieces, a carpet sample, wood tones
etc...things you need when you are out making decisions. Anjum had
a way of helping us "zero in” on the right choice. That's
what we learned on this project... details make the difference and
that's when a designer like Anjum is worth her weight in gold."
"Doing a remodel is never easy, but in my opinion there is
no substitute for a great designer. Anjum Razvi is well worth the

“Over six years ago, a close friend introduced me to Anjum.
I had purchased new furniture but needed help in its placement and
also to pull the rooms together. That consultation was the beginning
of a long relationship with her. She not only helped me with the
kitchen, home office and miscellaneous design projects in that house,
but when I sold the house and purchased my present much larger home,
Anjum helped me with the re-design of all the major areas of my
new 6,000 square foot home. This included a major remodel of the
kitchen which involved moving a structural wall as well as the addition
of four skylights. She co-coordinated all of the work, working with
a structural engineer to make sure the end result was both functional
"I love color but find it very hard to visualize what the
finished product will look like. When Anjum proposed red walls for
my living room I was somewhat unsure but had full confidence in
her ability to steer me in the right direction. The end result is
a breathtaking room which now has ambience and warmth which the
previously white walls simply lacked."
"Anjum’s attention to detail and flawless follow-up
has been a priceless asset to me. I travel extensively and am gone
for long periods of time, sometimes even during the construction
phase of the project. I look forward to returning to an area of
my home completely transformed and always know that I will be completely
happy with the results. She acts as my agent, ensuring that the
design details are implemented correctly, and I trust her completely
with managing the entire project, including scheduling the whole
job and managing timely payments to the various sub contractors."
"Anjum has completely transformed my house into a warm and
beautiful home and most importantly it reflects my taste and personality.
It is hard to describe what design style my house follows as it
is completely unique and has evolved by mixing all the individual
pieces that I have loved."
"I have come to rely on Anjum’s advice on everything”.
“I have found Anjum’s input and ability to work with
the owners to create the product they wanted was excellent. Her
architectural training in addition to her design talent places her
among the best of any designers that I have worked with in my thirty
years in custom construction. I have referred her to my customers
for design help and have in fact used her with the interior design
on my own home."

“I met Anjum Razvi about 15 years ago, when she was
doing drafting work for our construction projects. Our business
relationship grew into a personal friendship and I remember
encouraging Anjum to move toward the design end of the business.
I suggested that her knowledge of construction, not held by
many designers, was a real asset to help guide her design
"We have worked on many projects together and I enjoy
creating reality from Anjum's designs."

“Anjum Razvi was hired to design a Master Plan for the redecorating
of a 92-unit condominium complex in Coronado, California. This Plan
was to cover all the public spaces and recreational areas in the
complex. Anjum proved to be not only an excellent designer, but
a master at communicating her ideas to the Board of Directors and
Homeowners. It was interesting that her concepts were appealing
to both men and women, and to people of different tastes. She was
a delight to work with, and was able to keep costs in mind without
in any way letting that show in her results. I would recommend her
wholeheartedly to any Homeowners Association, or to individuals."
