While like most design firms we provide full interior design services for all environments, studio m | interiors focuses on two specific types of projects:

City Renovations: We have renovated dozens of city kitchens and bathrooms.   Contemporary, traditional and transitional.  Pretty spacious, and super tiny.  We will provide smartly designed plans, expertly curated finish and fixture selections, and project management while your space is being transformed.  Give us your tired, dated kitchen, bathroom, or living space and let us give you a reason to love the home you live in!

New Construction – City and Suburbs:  You’ve decided to build new.  The world is your oyster.  You have a sense of what you like, what you don’t, and your friends tell you you’ve got great taste.  But the choices are overwhelming and there are literally hundreds of decisions to make.   We will help you navigate the entire process – help you create an overall budget so you know where to splurge and where to save. We will work with your architect and/or builder as your advocate.  We’ll provide a limited (but selected just for you) range of plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, finishes – everything you’ll need to have your builder complete your new house.  And then we can do the furniture, window treatments, artwork and everything you will need to make your house a home.

If you have a project that doesn’t fit neatly into either of these categories, or you have an out-of-state project, just give us a call and we’ll see if we can accommodate.  And if for some reason we can’t, we have a nice network of designer and architect friends we can introduce to you.
