Gina Viscusi Elson, ASID Allied, CKD 

Principal, Designer 

Gina Viscusi Elson has been designing and overseeing the construction of elegant and distinguished homes since she graduated with a BFA in Interior Architecture and Design from the San Francisco Academy of Art in 1992. She began her career at Design Showcase and, in 1994, started Viscusi Elson Interior Design. Her main office was based in Napa, California, before she moved to Los Altos to be more centrally located to serve her clientele. 

With her eye for the fine details and her extensive knowledge in interior architecture and the building process, she has become a popular choice among homeowners throughout California and beyond. Known in the industry for her design excellence, Gina’s firm has won numerous awards from ASID, NKBA and NARI. She lectures on a variety of design topics and hosts several fun and informative design events in her showroom throughout the year. 

In addition to creative talent, Gina emphasizes that good communication and being attentive and responsive are the most important qualities to have as an interior designer. She knows that it’s how well she and her staff relate with their clients, as well as the entire team on the project, that sets her firm apart. This service-oriented philosophy stems from Gina’s early days in hospitality. She learned how to provide a great experience for guests, and she’s carried this positive work ethic throughout her entire career. It is the cornerstone of the company and the key to its longevity.

“Celebrating Life” is at the essence of Gina’s design work. She creates interiors that allow clients to live the way they want to live—perfect environments for their needs and dreams. She finds inspiration through her travels, time spent with her family and her joyful experiences as an equestrian.
