Paulina Friedel here ;) How are you doing?
I started PUNIAF.design because I know, for a fact and from personal experience, that homes are so much more than a place to lay your head at night. They’re where everything happens!
Our homes and backyards are a huge part of our lives and can make or break our sanity in the best of times - let alone when we are working from home, staycationing during the summer, hosting birthday parties, adding to our families, or entering the empty nester stage of life. These big and little events and changes deserve a house as unique as our lifestyles.
My local community, home, and yard SAVED me and my family over the past few years, which is why PUNIAF.design focuses on helping friends and neighbors change everything they hate about their homes.
Please don't let yourself be stuck with your empty backyards and boring rooms any longer.
Reinvent your space.
You’re worth it!
We are a full-service construction and design team, so we start from the bottom and make your dream space magically appear. From start to finish we will all (I promise!) have a blast :)
If you don't know where to begin, let me help you figure some things out in a FREE 30 minute consultation.
(No strings attached, I promise!!)
Life has taught us things
For example how to function within our four walls for an extended time and not go cray cray...? Now we know more than ever what kind of difference smart design and organization can make in your life.
Home office or backyard retreat?
If you're lucky to work from home (oh believe me, I know the struggle!) - is your office space a little cramped, do you dream of working out of a private resort?
If you have a yard,
I can give you a resort.
You deserve to LOVE your surroundings
Is your dining table the headquarters of your life and the bathroom a time travel device? Do you have a yard no one ever steps into?
I know how to fix that - and I come with a crew ;)
It’s so overwhelming moving into a new house but Paulina was a great help as she walked us through major styling decisions when we needed serious direction on how to make our new place “home" on our budget.
She advised us on everything from paint selection to furniture arrangement to helping us choose a stair railing. She even picked paint colors based on photos, over the phone!
We are thrilled with the way our home has become truly our own in style, comfort and function. Thanks Paulina!
Needed a big change for the tone of my living room but I didn’t have a lot to spend. Paulina took a look at my place and decided I could really benefit from an accent wall. It was a brilliant and inexpensive idea. She helped me choose the wall and even the color to suit my taste. I couldn’t be happier ever since. The wall just pops and brings such a better vibe to my space.
I’ve been saving and looking forward to doing more projects with Paulina.
Can’t wait to give more love to my home.
Every so often, one needs to have a closer look at their everyday spaces with a new set of eyes. This can be your office, a small nook, or in my case my studio classroom. With Paulina's help and guidance, our space was transformed. The library was enhanced with a delightful canopy that clearly defined it. The newly painted classroom became an extension of the outdoors with gorgeous natural greens. Paulina was able to see my vision and need for a practical, versatile and beautiful space. The new lightning is efficient and magical, and our display walls are finally organized and aesthetically appealing. She has such creative energy! All in all, a wow experience.
Thanks Paulina, you’re the best.
Paulina has been helping me design my spaces now for over 10 years and has designed two of my music studios as well as my music classroom. Her obsessions with colors, furniture, plants, lighting, and accents keep her awake at night and working with her is guaranteed to elevate your living space no matter your setup. I’ve learned over the years, time and time again, to truly trust her judgement because she ALWAYS delivers!! She can see things the minute she walks into a room that no one else can see.
Highly recommended! 10/10 ;)

Designer & Maker
I’ve always been a DESIGNER of all things, passionately obsessed with colors, layouts, textures, light, interior design, construction, DIY and power tools.
After years of being involved in numerous remodeling projects for friends and family, eventually purchasing a fixer-upper in Los Angeles, becoming a mom, and hands-on overseeing the construction of brand new buildings from A-Z,
it felt like I had enough real life experience to pass it on.
I decided to officially leave my 20 year long career in graphic design and finally share
my home makeover and MacGyver level problem solving skills with more people.
And now you're here!
Paulina Friedel aka PUNIAF.
