Veronica Koltuniak

Veronica Koltuniak began her career working in set design for television and film productions in Los Angeles.  In 1990, she turned to fulltime interior design work, initially spending four years working with an architect before striking out on her own.  Veronica’s on-the-job training and natural talent for design work propelled her to the top of her craft, and she developed a client list including such celebrities as Madonna, Courtney Cox and David Arquette.  In 2000, Veronica and her husband decided he should accept a job offer in Austin, which would allow them to raise their young sons in Texas instead of in the Los Angeles area.  Little did she know that moving from California to Texas would change her title, even though she has not changed the nature of her work.  Not long after moving to Austin, Veronica returned to full-time design work and started Veronica Koltuniak Design.  She commuted back to Los Angeles and worked with Courtney Cox on “Mix it Up,” a show that involved Courtney assisting couples, roommates or families in combining divergent decorating tastes.  Veronica was the featured designer on the first three episodes, and the Austin press picked up the story when the show premiered.
