Dorene Gomez  –  CCIDC Certified Interior Designer, Owner


After an education in Interior Design and Architecture, I determined right away to apply for my Certification for Interior Design in San Francisco.  After extensive study, I passed the examinations and became recognized as a CCIDC Certificate Holder within the State of California.

I established myself in the Interior Design community as Co-Owner and Interior Designer of two nationally recognized stores, Heritage House and Drexel Heritage, in Concord and Pleasanton. It was there that I learned true business skills and how to provide great customer service. I also became keenly mindful of what it means to have integrity.

I have been at J. Hettinger since 1999 and in 2014 I had the opportunity to become co-owner of this fantastic company.

I specialize in high-end residential interiors and can execute a full interior remodel concept when needed for your home. My award-winning designs over the years demonstrate my experience and passion for design.

I take pride in giving my clients a highly skilled, flexible approach to all their interior design needs. The importance of never limiting yourself as an Interior Designer is the motivating force of how I approach Design. Creating environments that feel timeless, and are reflective of my client’s taste, lifestyle, and personality is something I constantly strive for.

I celebrate 35 years as a Certified Interior Designer. Because of my clients’ great experiences, many of them return again and again with confidence and peace of mind.
