About Us

Kristine and Irene have a very interesting fateful story that started out in the 90's at San Diego State University.  There, both were sorority sisters at Sigma Kappa and even roommates at one point.  After graduation, Kristine and Irene lost touch. Flash forward twenty some years, both had graduated and worked in their respective careers. Kristine in the Travel and Tourism field and Irene in Media Production. Both were married, had children and unknowingly  lived down the hill from each other - living in the same community of San Elijo Hills. Something in the Universe drove both Kristine and Irene to go back to school to obtain a second degree in Interior Design. Call it divine intervention or  fate, whatever it was, somehow they both ended up in their first design class together after having not seen each other in over twenty years.  After a few years of collaborating on school projects and going through yet another graduation together...Viola! A design company was formed.

Irene and Kristine are amazing to work with.  Very creative and highly responsive.  They have done an amazing job in updating our home while still incorporating the existing elements and flooring that would have been difficult and expensive to change.  We are very happy with this company and highly recommend them to anyone looking for interior design services.  


We worked with Stearns Navarro for a photo shoot for a new product. The home they decorated was flawless. So much thought was put into each piece and accessory. We would recommend them to put the extra finishing touches on any home. 


Kristine Stearns and Irene Navarro did my office and I am very pleased!!! My clients love it. They were able to work on a tight timeline and were responsive with follow up which was very important for me.


Kristine Stearns & Irene Navarro of Stearns Navarro Interiors remodeled my kitchen last yr & I couldn’t be happier!


We did a complete remodel of our home in Encinitas. Kristine and Irene were very helpful and responsive. Not only did they come up with good concepts and designs, they also supported and integrated our own ideas. We did some unique custom work and the ladies were very resourceful and creative to make our ideas become reality. Yes, I would definitely recommend their services and would not hesitate to hire them again in the future
