When they met while working for tastemaker and influential designer, Ken Fulk, Eva Muller Bradley and Alicia Cheung Lichtenstein had no idea their crossing paths would lead to an outstanding interior design career together. These November Hall of Femme honorees developed a close friendship that eventually led to the creation of their own design firm, studioHEIMAT, which they opened in 2015. Now in its seventh year, Eva and Alicia’s shared life-long dream of running an interior design firm has kindled a growing team of designers, architects, builders, and artisans that are highly sought after in the Bay Area.
studioHEIMAT’s unique style seeks to create soulful spaces through clean lines, elevating the status quo, and adding an edginess to each project. “Heimat,” a German word, translates to “homeland” which is precisely the vibe Eva and Alicia seek to create. They want their work to truly feel like home for their clients.
