    About Genevieve Trousdale

    A Louisiana-born interior designer, Genevieve Trousdale’s finely-honed design sense was originally influenced by two generations of discerning familial role models with exquisite taste. After earning an interior design degree at the University of Georgia, Genevieve developed inspired and inventive ideas for each client’s passions and desire for the very best while on assignment designing homes and estates throughout Europe, the Middle East and America.

    Highly regarded for sophisticated design, meticulous attention to detail, creative sourcing of one-of-a-kind pieces, and the ability to manage thousands of special details at once – Genevieve has earned the respect and admiration of the most thoughtful and discriminating clients.  Equally, Genevieve delights in designing interiors for individuals and young families locally in Southern California and near her home base in the South Bay of Los Angeles.

    Genevieve’s experience led her to create a global membership organization, called Circaphiles, for professional designers to find resources for their projects, network and continue their education.  With her commitment to elevating the industry’s reputation, Genevieve earned a seat on the ICAA (Institute of Classical Art & Architecture) events committee which produces prolific educational programming throughout the year.

    In 2023, Genevieve was named by the LA Times in the Top 40 Under 40 interior designers in Los Angeles.

    Design Philosophy

    Genevieve has conceived design visions and successfully executed those visions including wildly imaginative interiors, residential minimal masterpieces and estates that seamlessly blend modern with traditional. She listens to the architecture, the location and the client’s wishes to form conceptual designs accordingly – like a chameleon to each project, not imposing her personal style.

    “Bringing Heritage Home” defines the Circa Genevieve design philosophy and is incorporated into every project, no matter what the style is.  Pieces with sentimental meaning to you are paramount in our process.  From the first design concepts, the client’s traditions, lineage and cultural lifestyle are carefully considered and woven into our vision and schemes.  The result?  A harmonious story in which our clients feel comfortable, stimulated and prideful to create conversations with family, friends and all who visit the space.

     

    Experience

    Esteemed apprenticeships with celebrated grand dame designers Gerrie Bremermann in New Orleans and Suzanne Rheinstein in Los Angeles, influenced Ms. Trousdale to create an impressive, stand-out portfolio.  Professionally, she has collaborated with renowned L.A. designer Michael Berman for 5 years, whom she credits for tailoring her aesthetic and meticulous project management abilities. And, prior to launching Circa Genevieve in 2016, design phenom Timothy Corrigan counted on Genevieve to oversee his most challenging international projects for 5 years.
