Andrew Villasana is an Interior and Lifestyle Designer, primarily working in the high-end residential market. He provides concierge style service and handles all aspects of a project personally – including interior architecture, design, decoration, custom furniture, landscape design, project management, client representation, and management of household staff. He has even provided clients with house sitting, dog sitting, and babysitting – a true testament to the rapport that he develops within professional relationships.
Andrew has chosen entrepreneurship because he wants to be in control of his own destiny. He freely pursues his interests, goals, and dreams; and has learned about his own strengths and weaknesses in the process. Andrew is successful because of his ambition, creativity, determination, innovation, and his thick skin.
When asked where he draws inspiration, he responds “from everyday people.” Rather than idolize the rich and famous, he honors the hard work and self-sacrifice of men, women, and children around the world. He draws from the positive energy that he sees in individuals and families and how people give of themselves to make another’s life better. He also quotes Glenda the Good Witch: “You’ve always had the power my dear; you just had to learn it for yourself.” Andrew does not take himself too seriously. While he is certainly an artist, he views his role as a guide; there to support clients in defining their personal style and creating their dream home. His goal is to far exceed expectations while remaining humble enough to honor a client’s right to create a home that feels safe and secure – a private sanctuary – in which to make memories. “To understand that to be truly successful you have to be open to change; willing to take risks; dare to dream, and work hard to make your dreams become reality. Most importantly, we are all a work in progress, and in order to stay competitive and relevant in today’s constantly evolving world we too have to evolve with it.”
