About Design Focus

Creating Timeless Elegance Through Distinctive Interior Design


Principal Beverly Stadler founded Design Focus 35 years ago. Since that time, Design Focus has designed some of the most beautiful and awarded designs in the Orange County area. Beverly’s distinctive approach to casual sophistication is both timeless and beautifully integrated to her clients' taste and lifestyle. This combination has earned her recognition with multiple regional and national awards, and loyalty among her diverse clientele.

Beverly holds an AA degree in interior design, in addition to her original nursing degree, as Design is her first love, but her second career! Medicine has not been left behind, however, as medical and dental design is a large part of the firm’s focus.

Consistently recognized for design excellence and ethical values, Beverly was elected president of the Orange County ASID Organization for the 2003-04 year. Beverly continues to remain active in the organization, and has served multiple years as a National Council for Interior Design Qualification juror.

According to Beverly, interior design is more than a passion and talent for creativity. It is about "listening to the client, to combine their practical needs with the dream held in their mind, tempering it with architectural and budgetary restraints, and creating a totally unique and exquisitely beautiful solution, that answers those needs in such a way that it enriches the client’s life on a daily basis."
