“Ghina has a discerning eye for design that comes around rarely in Kern County! An outstanding service to our community” -Ed Hayes

“Ghina did such a wonderful job at designing our new medical office in NW Bakersfield. Many of our patients tell us they feel like they are walking int a medical office in Beverly Hills or San Diego. When I met Ghina I told her I was looking for a ‘modern but classy’ look, like most of the Las Vegas Hotels … boy, did she deliver. One of my best business decisions, ever! Pricing wise, she is much more reasonable than I expected. Definitely worth it” -Jan Trobisch

“Ghina at Itani Design Concepts did an amazing job with our office remodel. We wanted to create a space that our team would enjoy working and she did just that. She’s great at listening to what you want and then making that vision a reality. I can’t recommend her enough!” -Robert Welch

“It’s a pleasure to work with Ghina—she is an absolute professional.  Ghina truly listens to her clients’ needs and desires and incorporates them masterfully in stylish design.  Her design documents are always meticulous and she is hands-on throughout the process, even jumping in and assisting with questions through construction” -Jared Leavitt

I brought Ghina on board to modify some of the design elements so that they are more conducive to the healing environment I seek for my hospital, our patients and staff. Additionally, Ghina has completed preliminary designs in the administrative wing and in the patient and staff lounges in the existing building. I appreciate her commitment to quality and sensitivity to budget constraints. She has a very strong work ethic and produces quality design with the budget she is provided. -Martha Samora

“The addition of Ghina to our building design efforts transformed our construction project from a regular office into a building that we are truly proud of. Ghina has a firm understanding of all aspects of the construction process, from design and permitting through construction and furnishing.

She has been wonderful to work with, and we are excited to bring her on-board again for our next project.” – Derek Sprague
