Who We Are
At Awaken Designs we are committed to bringing ease and relief to the lives of families we work with because we understand that peace and joy occur naturally when families live, play and work in harmonious spaces.
Awaken Designs believes that your living environment should encompass all that warms and excites your heart. We are passionate that our clients live a life they love and have their homes directly reflect that commitment. At Awaken Designs, our mission is to support clients in transforming their homes as they transform their lives into one that is full of purpose, passion and joy. Not only beautiful, rich and comfortable, but also an ongoing reflection of who they are evolving into being each and every day.
Passionate about the connection between our surroundings and our well being, Erika Lam has studied Feng Shui for over 20 years. Growing up in a “house full of treasures”, she spent her childhood unable to open overstuffed drawers and surrounded by ceiling-high cluttered rooms. Erika naturally chose a career where she could create beautiful and peaceful spaces for others.
After years of rearranging furniture in several friends’ homes, when a friend suggested that she go into the interior design business herself and get paid doing what she loved, she took the jump and started her own company.
“I love transforming a home with Home Staging and Feng Shui Design. It’s like playing doll house with other peoples’ homes. The best part is seeing people’s faces when we are done!”
Erika Lam was born and raised in San Francisco and received her Bachelor’s of Science Degree from the University of California, Davis. She is an organization junkie and an organized kitchen cabinet is like balm for her soul. She enjoys gardening, bike riding, cooking and reading with her two boys and is a dedicated yoga and meditation student.
