Ginger Atherton has developed a niche market with a style all her own, which she defines as, “Luxe, luxe, and more luxe!” Her Italian heritage and extensive European travels have inspired the decorative tycoon to create a luxury lifestyle for her clients, something so much more than simple home décor. Started in 1986, the company developed from Atherton’s strong clientele constantly seeking her involvement in not only the purchasing of furniture, but all areas of running a large estate.


“Clients continually ask me about assisting their staff and training their staff, how to run their homes, menus, and lifestyles, and that is how Atherton & Associates evolved into the luxe­elite lifestyle design firm that is today.”

And what a lifestyle it is; Atherton homes boast ornate and glowing interior spaces that invite family members and guests alike to relax and savor the luxury that living can be. Filled with mixtures of classic and eclectic pieces, the collective look is that of a world traveler’s ultra sumptuous haven.As if decorating interior space for the mega­mansions of her A­list clientele wasn’t enough, Atherton has discovered a major market in staging for Realtors. In this process, she transforms blank interiors into lavish warm inviting rooms, luring potential buyers closer to the point of purchase by showing them the amazing potential each space has when “Gingerized”­a term coined by

Atherton's clients to describe the end result of her projects.

With huge success in staging, Atherton and Associates has been recruited to design for special events such as the green room for the Academy Awards and banquets for major television and studio productions. However, they still maintain their area of expertise, known throughout L.A. for their whimsical private residences. 


Ginger Atherton has been called "designer to the whos who" in magazine and news articles and television shows. She is also active in important charitable organizations and event planning. Ginger is currently working on her new book, Designing Your Life. It is scheduled for publication in the Fall of 2017.
