Vianney Baltazar wins 1st place in the Chief Architect Kitchen/Bath & Interior Design Contest. She has a skill for bringing her clients’ visions to life, as seen in this bachelor’s kitchen remodel.
“A career in home design has been an obvious choice for me from my childhood. My parents immigrated from Mexico to the United States, and I grew up in the small border town of Calexico, California. Growing up, my father worked full-time while my mother and I planned our dream home. We would watch design shows together, completely fascinated by all the details contributing to the showcased design. Eventually, my parents purchased our own home, where all my sketches, boards, and space planning was put into use! As time passed, I realized first-hand how much I enjoyed the design process and the effect an interior space can have on a homeowner.
“I then moved to the closest city near me and graduated from the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) accredited Interior Design program at the Design Institute of San Diego. I have been working in the interior design industry for almost five years now, and as technology progressed, so did my yearning for knowledge of the best way to communicate a design. I’ve previously worked with other 3D building modeling programs, but by far, Chief Architect is the most user-friendly I have come across. Chief Architect has all the tools to help you succeed in creating the most personalized design. The program has challenged me to get as creative as possible when bringing a client’s vision to life.
Chief Architect has been the perfect fit for what our company stands for.
“I was introduced to Chief Architect when I started working at Lars Remodeling and Design. I am fairly new to the program, but the rendering that won the Kitchen/Bath Interior Design contest has been my favorite thus far! The client was amazed by all the details that were replicated from his current condo. At Lars, we find it’s important to show the client homes current character and charm, so I built in 3D his existing custom dining room table, art gallery, and even staged the home with his furniture while adding some creative ideas. These unexpected personal touches make our design process incredibly moving for clients and create excitement for the next steps in their home remodel. Our company is extremely committed to bringing our client’s vision to life; Chief Architect has been the perfect fit for what our company stands for. I look forward to the future challenges I will come across and pushing my creative abilities with Chief Architect software.”
