Throughout her career Patsy Zakian-Greenough has specialized in interior space planning, kitchen and bath design, universal design, design for aging in place and project management in the area of residential construction.
When additions are a part of the scope of her work, she has an assembled team of highly skilled specialists, including an architect, engineer and CAD technicians that share her design philosophy to provide complete and uninterrupted service.
Projects always begin by the attention she gives to her clients, listening to their dreams, their vision for their home and their budget. Her design includes solutions not just for the person her clients are today, but for the person they will become tomorrow.
Most of her work has been in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. However, her talent has taken her to do projects in Wyoming, Colorado and Mexico. She maintains that projects out of the immediate area are not a problem with today’s computer technology. Everyone is able to maintain regular communication.
Patsy is a Certified Interior Designer in the State of California; a Certified Kitchen Designer by The National Kitchen & Bath Association; and, a Certified Aging in Place Specialist by National Association of Home Builders.
She has won numerous awards, locally and nationally for her clean design of contemporary and traditional interiors. She maintains that when solving a problem she doesn’t like to think of beauty, however when the project is done if it’s not beautiful she knows it is wrong. It is a philosophy she’s adopted taken from a Buckminster Fuller quote.
Through the years, she has been an accomplished writer; her articles have appeared in local and national publications covering a variety of remodeling and interior design topics. She has written, taught seminars and presented topical information to various groups and consumers.
She has served as a Director and President of the California Council for Interior Design Certification representing designers to the California State Senate Business and Professions Committee in Sacramento. Currently she serves on the CCIDC board as the Chair and represents the National Kitchen and Bath Industry in California.
In 2004 she was honored by the National Kitchen and Bath Association, Northern California Chapter as the Volunteer of the Year for her work and efforts as she established, organized, collected and sent care packages to our Troops over-seas.
