About Us

Jeff Culbertson and Jill Durst bring a unique,  sharp-focused and creative presence into play. Whether re-inventing existing interiors or conceptualizing with the client from square one, the total process is one that is predicated on collaboration. Their combined experience of over forty years in the industry and their passion for design excellence inspires a vivid exploration and dialogue, merging the practical with the fanciful and the functional with the decorative.

Culbertson/Durst have garnered recent design awards and represent a wide client base in the Bay area as well as may individual projects throughout the United States.  They consistently offer innovative and cohesive interior design solutions regardless of the scope of the project. From the modest to the fantastically complex, their reputation originates from an attention to detail and a strong regard for classic sophistication.

Jeff Culbertson’s influences began with five years of architectural study, three of those at UC Berkeley’s School of Environmental Design.  His expertise is in interior architectural detailing, space planning, material specification, budgeting, and project management.  Most recently Jeff spent the summer of 2012 working in China on several design projects. While there he presented a series of lectures to young designers eager to learn the American traditions of spacial composition and “flow” relating to interior design.

Jill Durst holds an interior design degree from Long Beach State and is a certified interior designer, NCIDQ. Jill’s expertise is space planning, furniture selection, material specification, textile knowledge and color.  Her beautiful custom drapery and window treatment designs grace many Bay Area homes.
