Fran Kerzner, Interior Designer

Fran Kerzner, Allied Member ASID

My unique background allows me to bring a distinctive skill set to each of my client’s projects that sets me apart from other Designers.  In addition to my Design education and over 23 years experience as an Designer, I also have a degree in Business Administration from the University of Southern California, 6 years as a Certified Public Accountant and over 6 years in the management of multi-million dollar construction companies. My clients benefit from not only my creative talents but my business acumen and construction and management knowledge as well. I am involved with the Los Angeles business community serving on the Board of Directors for the Sherman Oaks Chamber of Commerce.

My design experience began in 1990, working for and with other well-known Designers. In 2001, I began my own company, Design Synthesis. My exclusive Los Angeles residential design clientele includes several celebrities and my commercial work has includes offices and retail spaces throughout the Los Angeles area.  I have been featured on HGTV as well as numerous magazines such as the Robb Report , Electronic Home and Kitchen and Bath Design, and was awarded the "Best Of Houzz" 2014 and 2012. 

I have a passion for truly listening to my clients and creating original spaces that fulfill all of their dreams and more.  The essence of my design philosophy is epitomized in the name of my company: Design Synthesis.  I am truly adept at combining modern and traditional design components against a background of clean lines to create a synthesis that is definitely more than the sum of its parts.
