Full service interior design from traditional to contemporary

Violante & Rochford Interiors is a full-service, boutique design firm based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, though the duo has worked around the country, and whose projects have been featured in major media globally.  They are known for creating spacious, light-filled, chic, and casually-elegant interiors that fulfill the client’s vision, their lifestyle, and addresses both practical issues as well as aesthetic requirements, from traditional to contemporary or a mix. 

Paul Rochford and Michael Violante, principals in the company, have been working together for over twenty years, and are also a married couple.  Their experience at creating luxe interiors has made them the choice of a sophisticated clientele who often return to Violante & Rochford for multiple homes and projects. They are located in an historically-significant Arts and Crafts structure on Paseo de Peralta in Santa Fe.
