founder + lead designer
I have worked in the interior design industry since 2016 for a number of companies. My interior design experience ranges from model home design, commercial renovations, space-planning & elevations, paint & material specifications, and residential e-design projects. I have been completely inspired (and slightly obsessed) with design on many levels since I was a child. I truly love all things creative! From interior design, graphic design, floral design, cookie decorating, to painting, hand lettering, fashion styling, and more, I have dipped my toes in it and enjoy doing it all!
As an entrepreneur at heart, I have always wanted to start my own full time business. I have opened and closed more small side hustles than I can count. Some of these include a home made bath bomb company to fund my first trip to Europe, a cupcake & bake shop, and an invitation/ greeting card online shop. In 2020 I finally decided to quit my corporate interior design job, stop all the crazy side hustles and marry my two main passions (event styling & interior design) to create Pop & Pine Design. Pop for the event side of the business, "pop the confetti" (or the champagne) and pine for the natural and organic elements of interior design materials.
Pop & Pine Design is my true delight and most of the time it does not even feel like work. However, when I am not working you can find me at the beach with my husband, at Oceans Church with my family, cooking/ baking a new recipe, or reading on my sofa with an espresso and my kitty, Cleo, curled up on my lap.
PIZZA OR PASTA... GIVE ME ALL THE CARBS!
TARDINESS WITHOUT COMMUNICATION! I FIND IT TO BE RUDE

SWEET!!! I CAN EAT DESSERT ALL DAY EVERYDAY. IT'S A MAJOR PROBLEM...
Hi I am Chelsea! I work as the Creative Director at Pop & Pine Design. I have a huge passion for all things creative. Whether it be styling photo shoots, singing in my band, or designing homes & events at work; when my creative wheels are spinning I am most happy!
At Pop & Pine Design I work closely with our clients and team to help develop their design for both events and interior projects. I oversee the creative process alongside Kindyl to ensure all projects meet our quality standards and are full of innovative ideas and of course gorgeous design! My favorite aspect of working at Pop & pine design is actually implementing the designs we have created on paper. Such as seeing a floral arrangement or stunning table setting take shape.
When I am not working I love spending time with my friends and family (especially my precious nieces and nephews), going on long runs, creating music, drinking copious amounts of coffee, and watching HGTV.
Crème brûlée... THAT COUNTS RIGHT?
WHEN PEOPLE DRIVE SLOW IN THE FAST LANE!
BEACH OR MOUNTAINS
I LOVE BOTH SO MUCH BUT SINCE I LIVE IN A BEACH TOWN I WILL HAVE TO SAY THE BEACH.
Hi! My name is Tina Mercado and I am the Creative Manager at Pop & Pine Design. I graduated with a fashion merchandising degree at Baylor University. I have always had a love for creating and designing.
At Pop & Pine Design I manage our social media platforms and work alongside the team in design development and implementation for event and interior design projects. I work with our vendors and team to bring projects all the way through from beginning to end. My favorite part of being at Pop & Pine Design is getting to connect with our clients and see our vision come to life when the finished product is completed and revealed.
I am a Southern California native and currently attend Oceans College where I am learning a lot about how to operate as a leader in every environment. I love a good sunset PCH drive, making mood boards, and endless hang outs with friends. You will most likely find me at a coffee shop in the OC hanging out. I can’t wait to meet you!
