Vanessa De Vargas, Principal Interior Designer, Turquoise
Vanessa De Vargas is the principal interior designer for the design label Turquoise, located in Los Angeles. Turquoise—named for her favorite color and a nod to her roots in New Mexico—is the overarching umbrella
for all of De Vargas’ design ventures (interior design, vintage one-of-a-kind furniture, charity design, and E-decorating.)
De Vargas decorates residential and commercial properties all around Los Angeles for a select clientele. Her goal for any
project she works on is that the space reflects the owner and what they love and cherish.
De Vargas has an uncanny ability to balance the modern and the vintage in her interior designs, and she is always on the lookout for one-of-a-kind pieces. Many of her finds are for sale at One Kings Lane.com, where she is a regular seller in the Vintage and Market finds. De Vargas has been published in more than 100 design-related magazines such as Sunset, InStyle, Cottages and Bungalows, HGTV, Redbook, the New York Times, as well as on blogs such as Angeleno, LA Confidential, Decor 8, and Design Sponge. She has appeared on HGTV’s Design Wars, TBS’ Movie and a Makeover, and, most recently, Yahoo!'s “Ultimate Surprise,” where she designed a music classroom for a deserving teacher. Readers can also view her design spots on HGTV.com
De Vargas is passionate about pro bono design work as well. She has done 5 charity-related projects in Los Angeles already and her latest venture is for “Freehab,” a charity rehab facility spearheaded by Russell Brand and Lauri Burns of the Teen Project.
