There are some who haphazardly turn a hobby of decorating into a career and then there are those who are driven by design, who dream of making the world a better place with their knowledge and enthusiasm for transforming spaces. Ariane Bartosh Interior Design is definitely the later of the two, never afraid of taking risks in design.
California born, Ariane received her BFA in interor design with a minor in painting from San Diego State University. After a few years at various architecture firms in San Diego, she packed her bags and headed to LA where shortly thereafter landed a job with renowned interior designer Kelly Wearstler. Working also with Ruthie Sommers and Estee Stanley, her vast design experience finally drove her to succumb to her dreams and open Ariane Bartosh Interior Design.
She currently resides in Silverlake with her springer spaniel Maude.
