About Us

April Worrell Ralston established Wor-ell Custom Interiors over 19 years ago in Solana Beach, California. Our namesake, as well as our business philosophy, found its roots in Wor-ell Custom Lighting, a family owned custom design lighting company established in 1965 by April’s grandfather, Jack Worrell.

Our philosophy is based on personalized and professional service. Our desire is to build a relationship with each client based on common interests and goals.  Through this relationship we can design and build an environment that is uniquely suited to each individual client. The success of this company is owed to the friendships that have been created through this process. We strive to create a home or business that surpasses the expectations of each person that we work with, by focusing on the unity between humans and the environments in which they live, work and play.

As a NCIDQ Certified, professional ASID member and Certified Green Building Professional, Wor-ell Custom Interiors has guided hundreds of clients through the process of building, remodeling, and redesigning their own home or business with award winning results! We look forward to working with you and invite you to come be a part of the Wor-ell Custom Interiors family!
