Photo of Adrienne Mascaro at the beach.

Design principal Adrienne Mascaro was raised and educated in Chicago and has been a proud Venice Beach and Marina del Rey local for over 20 years.


Adrienne graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the International Academy of Design and Technology, a CIDA-accredited design school located in Chicago’s Loop. Her major was interior architecture and her minor, and her first love was theater.

After graduation, Adrienne worked as a photo stylist and set designer for Silver Lining Graphics, a large, well-known catalog house in Chicago. She also freelanced in the art department on several commercials and independent films. She became more drawn to designing for the character in mind, and, in 1996, moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in set decoration for film and television.

After successfully working in the art department for Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, and Sony Pictures, Adrienne returned to her interior design roots. In 1999, she started Studio Blu, Inc., a Venice Beach-based boutique interior design firm specializing in high-end custom homes and remodels. She received a certification in Reiki and brings this healing practice into her designs. Adrienne is one of 12 interior designers who are both represented and highly referred by L.A.’s Pacific Design Center.


Adrienne is an avid tennis player and a proud mother.
