About Paula

I am a CID-certified interior design consultant currently serving clients in the Napa Valley. I am also a student of Ayurveda and a mother of (soon to be) three. My strength is in creating harmony among all aspects of a person's life, using surrounding elements to design an environment that is beautiful and unique.

My aesthetic sensibility has been shaped by my Chilean heritage, growing up in the Napa Valley and my travels in France and Australia. My travels have instilled a sense of curiosity in me and shaped my vision tremendously. A passion for creativity runs in my family—I am the daughter of the avant-garde french winemaker, Bernard Portet and great-grandniece of the famed chilean architect, Josue Solar Smith.
