Can you walk us through a project from start to finish?
The first step in my design process is working with the client. I ask questions about color, style, function, and budget. Next, I present all of the options for the design and work with the client to choose the final selections. Then, I secure the approvals. After that, I order the design elements, trace orders, and arrange for delivery. Finally, I install all of the design elements. I like to do it when the client is out, so they are surprised when they see the finished product.

What aesthetic are you known for?
 have completed interiors in almost every style. That being said, I like to create a comfortable, inviting atmosphere with an eclectic slant. I always include something unexpected involving color or a focal piece.

How do you ensure customer satisfaction?
I always strive to keep the client informed regarding the budget and a realistic completion schedule. They frequently change along the way. One way I achieve this is by making very thorough presentations to the client where I show colors, fabrics, and furnishings and how they all work together in their home.

At Home with Interior Designer Javier Burkle

Our homes say so much about us—whether we’re serious or playful, over-the-top or minimalistic—and their contents speak to our interests and idiosyncrasies. The same is true for those whose livelihoods are made making homes for others. We visited the eclectic and cozy Highland Park bungalow of one of our 2022 Best Designers and found it equally inspiring and revealing.
