Jute designs interiors flooded by light, warmed by natural elements, and brimming with one-of-a-kind pieces.

With backgrounds in art, antiques, and architecture, our team blends custom construction, well-crafted furnishings, and carefully considered details into beautifully comfortable interiors without fuss or clutter. Because we believe great design is not about our style. It’s about the best version of yours.

Led by Alison Davin, known for handcrafted details and an artisanal approach, our San Francisco– and Santa Monica–based team shares a love for design-build projects that allow light, space, and natural elements to flow with your home’s daily life. Every aspect is gracefully layered to create a personalized atmosphere that’s perfectly balanced and approachable.

In projects ranging from Los Angeles city family homes to Sonoma County rural escapes and Santa Barbara seaside villas, we aim for an approachable feel, fusing the character and sustainability of antique furnishings with the understanding of how people inhabit a space. With a holistic design process for both new construction and renovation, every aspect is carefully considered to create a purposeful atmosphere that’s comfortable and functional. The result: customized, harmonious spaces tailored to fit your lifestyle and optimized for your well-being.

Jute has been featured in national and international publications including Elle Decoration, Architectural Digest, and Luxe. Ali writes an article called Sustainable Design for Rue Magazine. And our first book Live Natural; A Relaxed Approach to Creating Healthy Homes will be published Spring 2024.
