Bayon Design Studio, Inc. was founded by Cindy Bayon with a focus on serving the local SF Bay Area. Bayon Design Studio specializes in full service Interior Design with a focus on high-end modern environments. Modern environments aren’t always focused on comfort, but Cindy believes modern and clean environments must also be livable and comfortable.
Cindy is involved in every project and does not believe in largely handing off projects to others. BDS reflects her design, therefore she feels she should only take on a certain amount of jobs in order to be deeply involved in the process of each project. A design project is a very intimate process between the designer and owner and I believe customer service is the key to each project .
Most of my clients are looking for luxury residential design, so we bring the process to an elevated level with turnkey management in both design and construction.
Cindy Bayon has worked on various special projects such as vacation homes, restaurants, and holiday decoration – even a yacht 😉
Establish the design and construction budget. For over a decade Cindy Bayon was the director of design for a design-build firm in San Francisco where she produced construction estimates and performed construction management for the projects she also designed.
During the initial meeting we discuss where the investment and value is for the financials of the project.
Detailed design of kitchen and bathrooms, custom wardrobes, fully defined millwork and cabinets, material selections, lighting design, door and hardware selections, power and AV diagrams, key drawings elevations to illustrate details, color palettes for interior and exterior.
Drawings + Documents
Perform all space planning drawings and details for construction pricing, permit needs, and the building HOA if project is located in a high-rise. High level drawings are focused on things such as, stair details, special construction elements, and full renovation documentation needed.
We consider pretty much everything to do with the building of an interior space that will affect human habitation, including materials, finishes, electrical requirements, plumbing, lighting, ventilation, ergonomics, and intelligent use of space. We will be present at, and have an important say during all stages of the construction process, from the initial plans right through to the finishing touches.
The philosophy on decor is not to clutter, but to bring in quality pieces and to let the special ones breathe in the space. We believe a home should be layered with texture, but keeping a monochromatic palette with accent colors integrated through accessories and fine art. Our trade resources at the Design Center, local boutiques and undiscovered bespoke vendors allows us to create a curated one-of-a-kind home.
The daughter of a builder found her way into the world of design and construction at an early age. Cindy continued her passion for design at the Academy of Art University enrolling in and graduating from the Interior Architecture program in San Francisco. From there she worked for many firms designing for top Silicon Valley companies and then found her way to the residential sector while working for over a decade as the design director at a design-build firm.
Cindy Bayon is the Principal at Bayon Design Studio, Inc., specializing in modern residential interior design. With a passion for quality homes, she has a strong sense of implementation and budget control – necessities for remodeling homes that must meet client expectations.

View property and make sure the relationship is a good fit for both parties.
We work to establish a budget prior to design so that the design meets the budget and not visa-versa.
We design with the homeowners to ensure we are on track both with budget and aesthetic in order to be in sync with the owner’s desired vision.
When the design is approved, drawings will be developed, products and materials will be prepared for ordering, color renderings can be produced, showroom visits are typically made with owners so they can view their furnishings.
If construction is part of the project, BDS works in the interest of the owner and will visit the jobsite at intervals to ensure the design is being executed as planned, quality is maintained, and overview of project changes with budget impact.
Designer will select goods, order all items, manage vendors, inventory and warehouse all items if needed, product shipment inspection is one of the keys to having a successful installation. Provide management for all deliveries and setup of the home.
Move-In Ready Services
The last stage of the project is stocking the kitchen and bathroom essentials. Unpack personal belongings to complete the home can be arranged.
“Cindy was the perfect pairing for us while remodelling a penthouse unit in Millennium Tower (Financial District, San Francisco). Her expertise and raw talent were exhibited and executed from start to finish. She has a knack for articulating the project(s) in such a way that it truly makes the experience exciting and personal. While working with Cindy, we felt heard which was one of my top priorities when choosing and working with a designer. Additionally, Cindy is highly organized which is undoubtedly necessary when knee-deep in the process. Magically she pulled our thoughts and ideas together to create a seamless composition we were both overjoyed by and with. We cannot say enough positive things about her, her talent, and her team. Well done, Cindy and thank you!!”
“I've worked with Cindy Bayon on over 20 projects and have always been impressed with her ability to understand and deliver on her client's design goals. Cindy has an in depth knowledge of the construction process which makes her a great project partner and client advocate on any project that requires a general contractor. ”
“I am a bath plumbing specialist at The Bath + Beyond and I have been working with Cindy Bayon for the last 8 years on several large projects, and many small to medium projects. She is always professional and knows her business. When she comes in she is always prepared and knows her clients needs and budget, which makes her a great client to work with and a rarity in my industry anymore.”
“Cindy does a great job working directly and collaboratively with her clients. I have the opportunity to work with Cindy Bayon in two different experiences redesigning and renovating loft spaces in SF. She listens, garners input, reaches out to her sources for advice and clarifications, allows the clients to establish their goals regarding your desires of look and feel as well as contributing your own input in selections of materials, finishes and design considerations. I am a design engineer by education and an artist at heart with a strong sense for aesthetics presentation, symmetry and colors. I found the process of working with Cindy both extremely enjoyable to figure out all aspects of the construction build out, but the ongoing process for what the final outcome of the space would ultimately become. She is creative, sharp, smart and fun to work with on projects. In short, she was awesome! ”
