Our expertise and experience equips us with everything we need to make your vision a reality. Those skills allow us to provide the solutions required to solve your design challenges whatever they may be, no matter the project size or scope.

Whether it’s a small project needing just the finishing touches, or we become part of a team on a larger scale residence or commercial enterprise, we embrace them all.

We tailor our services to whatever is required for the unique space. Design, specification, purchasing, project management and installation are all skills we offer our clients. The focus is ALWAYS to provide the best quality solutions awhile ensuring that we are respectful of our client’s time and budget.


This is where our process begins.  We meet with the client to determine the vision for the completed project. These “programming” meetings take many different forms and are individualized for each project and client. We spend time getting to know what your wants and needs are for the spaces involved, what the time frame for the project is and try to determine budgets for the scope of work involved.  A complete scope of services eventually gets determined during this process and once agreed upon by all parties involved, we get to work!


Most people are not aware of the effect that color has on their health and well-being. Color can have a profound effect on how well as space works in the end and it is a part of the design process that terrifies many people.  Whether you just need assistance selecting a color scheme for your space, or this becomes part of a larger project, this is a talent that we excel at.  Let us help you create a balanced and harmonious color palette for the spaces you are spending time in.


After the furnishings requirements have been determined, the layouts have been completed and the budgets have been approved, we can source furniture pieces from our furniture manufacturing resources. We will follow the procurement process all the way through from order specification, order placement, delivery scheduling and final installation on site.


We also provide design services for the exterior part of your project should you require it.  Patios, roof decks, pergolas, decks, outdoor seating and entertainment areas, outdoor kitchens, firepits /fireplaces, pools, spas, water features….you name it, we can help you with these design elements as well.


We will provide project specific shopping services, sourcing and installation of all the finishing touches and accessories such as area rugs, lamps, decorative pieces and art work to complete the individual design.


Custom designed window treatments for your home including unique fabrics and professional installation.   We also offer a wide selection of blinds to finish off that custom look.


“You know how you wish that your home or workspace looked and functioned EXACTLY the way you want it to, BUT you don’t know how to make that happen? Well, I can help you with that, just as I have been doing for clients for years.” -Kim Bresden, Principal


Anthony Torres, Vice Chairman, Principal, Trinchero Family Estates.

I have worked with Kim Bresden, Principal of White Sands Design International on a number of remodel projects in my home and on my property. Our first project together was a remodel of my master bath. Kim made sure to understand what I was looking for in terms of the look, what materials I wanted to use and the overall feeling I wanted. She used that input and created a master bath retreat with a masculine, spa look which was exactly what I was envisioning. When I was ready to remodel the other two bathrooms in my home, she transformed them as well.

Sam Timas, Napa CA

Our restaurant partnership hired Kim Bresden to provide Interior Design and project management services for a new restaurant, nightclub, bar, lounge and banquet facilities we were proposing. Kim was hired after we interviewed two other firms, as we felt her proposal, design and construction experience was a great fit for us and our project.

Norbert Warnke, Former President & CEO, Lifestyle Retirement Communities Ltd.

Kim Bresden, Principal of WSDI worked on a retainer basis for Lifestyle Retirement Communities for a period of nine years. During the time her services were being retained, she provided interior design consultation for all of our properties across Canada. She was involved in both renovating existing facilities and providing interior design services for new buildings and additions.

Gretchen Weinstein, Greenbrae CA

I met Kim about 10 years ago at a cabinet showroom and after speaking with her for awhile, hired her to help me give my bathroom a make-over. The house was built in the 60’s and most things had not been touched. I had never worked with a designer before, but she was very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable having her work on the job. She answered my questions, asked me questions as well and had a great way of communicating her thoughts so I could make decisions. She started out the project by asking me what my favorite colors were and what types of things did I really like. With those answers, she created a stunning new bathroom for me. I couldn’t believe the transformation and neither could any of my friends and family that came to see it!
