The moment we enter a building, the initial impact of the exterior is either maintained or diluted by the interior look and feel. Our interior design approach is informed by a simple philosophy: if you think the outside looks good, wait until you get inside.
The Best Interior Design Reflects What’s Inside The Client’s Mind
Our interior designers know they have done their job when our clients tell us that their new surroundings are an exact reflection of what they had in mind themselves. Our real task is to apply art, math, and science to the realization of our client’s own aspirations for the interiors they will live, work, play, or learn in. We can only do that job by listening first. For our interior design group, this means creativity becomes inspiration nourished by information. Our approach leads to a quality design that is driven by a distinctive vision. We work together with our clients’ and their community’s cultural and historical values to create design that stands the test of time and delivers an above expectation environment, on budget.
Where appropriate, a Schmidt Associates project employs our experienced interior designers to deliver a solution that make sure aesthetic impact is matched by measurable efficiencies all through the life of the building.
Interior Design You Want To Live In (And Don’t Just Have To Live With)
Through our highly client-focused process, the designer develops a palette that takes account of technical issues such as standards for finishes, furnishings, and overall aesthetics. Yet the design approach never allows the technicalities to obscure the vision and mission of the interior space. Really listening to clients and closely collaborating through the interior design phase allows us to develop approaches that are truly representative of the client and of those who will use each space every day. The result is always appropriate and always distinctive. We think of it as interiors you actively want to participate with rather than surroundings you just passively live with.
