Claire was born and raised in Paris, France and grew up in an artistic home with frequent visits to art exhibits and cultural events throughout Europe.
Art, culture and design made a serious impression on Claire from a very young age. After graduating from a top French Business School, which led to various marketing and communication positions, she worked for an architecture and landscaping firm in Lyon, France. This experience strengthened her passion for sustainable, unique, warm, and beautiful design and interiors.
Claire moved to Southern California in 2009, where she now resides, and began to pursue design in a formal fashion and started her own studio: CC interior design.
Influenced by European and American culture, by her previous work experiences in marketing and architecture, and by the many places where she has lived - Paris, Lyon, Montreal, Pittsburgh, Orange County and Los Angeles - Claire brings many wonderful influences to embrace each new project from concept to completion in a beautifully creative, personalized and elegant manner. Her business acumen and design talent are a remarkable combination for supporting her clients.
Claire earned a MSc in Marketing Management from EDHEC Business School, France and has successfully completed the Interior Design Professional Certificate Program from Saddleback College in Mission Viejo. She is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers.
What her clients say
Claire of CC interior design has a real talent to envision the completed project down to every detail! My husband and I had some ideas of what we wanted but we were struggling trying to pull it together. Claire was able to create a very livable and timeless space, bringing our white and beige drab walls to life! We would highly recommend CC interior design to customize and enhance any size space. We now live in a personalized, beautifully designed apartment that we love to show off every chance we get!"
Intelligent, creative, worldly - it is all Claire
Claire Cannesson from CC interior design is a pleasure to work with. She has great ideas, is very passionate about her job, has good contacts and can help you with any type of remodeling. She is also respectful of your own ideas and will work with you to achieve the best result. I highly recommend her.
