Debbie Talianko (Allied ASID, CID) is an accomplished residential interior designer, speaker and industry mentor whose firm has perfected the design of casually elegant interiors.
A San Diego native who grew up near the cliffs of Point Loma, Talianko travelled extensively throughout Mexico and Central America and received a Diploma with Distinction in Professional Interior Design from Rhodec International in London. She’s inspired by the intricacy of landscapes, Renaissance architecture and closer to home, the color palettes and feeling of serenity she derives from the mountains and beaches that surround her family’s home in Sierra Madre.
“I love classic design but without all the fuss. I’d define my style as transitional – clean, calm and casual.”
Whether managing a complete home renovation, a formal living room design or a kitchen upgrade, her aesthetic is defined by order and fluidity; incorporating relaxed silhouettes, fine fabrics and traditional or modern furnishings that are meticulously crafted. Her passion for the design process allows her to create consistent results for clients who expect a custom interior that lets them feel like themselves at home.
In 2012, Talianko was elected Chair of Pasadena’s California Home & Kitchen Tour, a showcase, now in it’s 26th year, that features the American Society of Interior Designers’ (ASID) most distinguished designers.
