Oak & Ivy Collection is an aesthetic renovation and design house located in San Diego, CA.  Founded by two moms with an eye for design, OIC understands the need to balance artistry with the day-to-day demands of a home well-loved.  We work to make style accessible to clients who cherish home-life as much as we do.  Construction doesn’t have to be scary and good design doesn’t have to feel stuffy.  Let us help you create a family retreat that rises up to meet you as you walk in the door!


“Working with Lauren & Janell was a wonderfully creative experience.  Our family felt supported throughout the duration of the design process and appreciated all of their help with renovation logistics.  We found our time together to be so comfortable and fun; it felt like having two friends over for brainstorming.  If you are fortunate enough to have OIC as your team, you know you are in the best care.”

“We did a complete remodel of our Coronado residence including a new kitchen, flooring, fireplace and bathrooms.  Since this is our vacation home, we could not be on site to manage the project.  OIC did an amazing job selecting materials, coordinating all contractors, and continually updating us on progress.  We were so thrilled with the end result that we hired them again to renovate our main house!”

“I am a general contractor by trade and have worked with numerous design firms.  OIC’s vision was one of the best I’ve ever seen and as an added bonus they understand the construction side of an extensive renovation.  This combination allows for implementation to move along flawlessly.  On top of that, they are amazing people!  I recommend them wholeheartedly and cannot wait to work with OIC again in the future.”

Who we are

Janell & Lauren are friends first and co-workers second.  Together they work with complimentary styles to find just the right balance for every space.  Outside of work they love travel, time with their families and exploring all that southern California has to offer.  Adventuring aside, we know one thing for certain-  nothing feels better than home.  So let’s stay in.
