Linda Shelby

I have always loved interior design and was always changing up things in my room as a teenager and then later in homes we owned.  My husband would always get nervous when I finished all the rooms, because he thought I would want to move...which happened a couple of times!  I moved here from the bay area in 2006 and now after 40+ years being in the procurement field, I finally get to surround myself with interior design.  When I moved here, Allan Hancock College had just passed a 180 million dollar bond, and I starting working there and assisted the team in spending the money on 9 new buildings and IT infrastructure for the campus, as well as overseeing all purchases for the college.  When the money ran out, I retired.  As much as I love spending other peoples money, I now love working with the customers in the showroom and helping them select the perfect gift or item for their home.  Our interior design clients are the best and I love the attention to detail that we provide for them.  I feel very fortunate to work in such beautiful surroundings!

Jacqueline Ruiz

Hi My name is Jacqueline but I go by Jackie, as a kid growing up I have always had a side to me that showed my love for interiors design, I loved to watch home improvement shows on tv and DIYS shows. Until this day i will only watch tv if its a design show if something else is showing i will not watch it! I love watching all the before and after's of spaces and the process it takes to make a room come to life. My love for Design lead me to Chic Interiors. My Journey started about 2.5 years ago as an intern my high school  wanted us to figure out our passion and mine was Interiors, after being here at Chic the noticed the love for the job and offered me to stay and learn and grow with them. So here we are almost 3 years later learning and doing everything from the back end doing the installations, paper work , some renderings, sourcing out product for the lead designer and loving what we do. The best part is reveal day and we get to see clients reactions all the back end work is worth it. On my days off i like to stay home and enjoy our backyard with my daughter and pets occasionally spend the afternoons enjoying the beach here locally and being with my family.

Lillie Turinsky

Hi! I’m Lillie and I’m excited to be a part of the Chic team. Growing up, I was always obsessed with color, texture, and composition. I now have Associates degrees in studio arts and liberal arts, and plan to continue my education to achieve a BFA in studio arts. I enjoy being a part of the design process, from the initial sourcing of ideas, to the final installation dates when we show clients their newly transformed home. I also enjoy working in the office and am always happy to help a customer find their perfect piece. When I’m not working or at school I’m usually making art, short films, or music with my friends.
