Meet Rusty Wadatz

As a designer, Rusty prides himself on turning the ordinary into extraordinary. He has achieved a reputation throughout both the interior design and real estate communities for creating and selling some of Northern California’s most premier properties. So much so, the name Rusty Wadatz has become synonymous with luxury.

His passion for interior design has been with him since birth. “I used to rearrange the homes of the kids I babysat while their parents were away,” Rusty recalls. “My mom would yell at me for doing it!” Her protests aside, the praise he received from the homeowners only encouraged him to do more.   

A Los Angeles native, Rusty relocated to San Francisco in 2006 where he worked for a number of years in business administration for companies including Salesforce and Gap, Inc. In 2012, he decided it was time to get back to his roots and launched his own interior design company, Rusty Wadatz Design.

Since then, Rusty has worked on myriad residential and commercial projects throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. More than just a designer, Rusty “art directs” the entire design process by working in collaboration with architects and contractors to create a cohesive vision for properties. “My goal is to create something editorial, yet extremely livable,” he says.

His projects have included residential developments, custom single family homes, condominiums, restaurants, and corporate offices. He sources materials and products, including tile, furniture, and flooring, from top of the line sources and pairs them creatively to make interiors that not only impress, but inspire. “I hold my client’s hands while pushing them to take their property to the next level,” he says. That approach is exactly what has enabled him to build a reputation for creating lavish interiors that are classic, elegant, and bold.
