Welcome to our first blog post! I'm Angela Chang, a professional interior designer passionate about creating beautiful and functional spaces for homeowners and business owners in the Sarasota area and nationwide. My goal for this blog is to share interior design inspirations & tips that we love and learned along the way.


Why Interior Design Matters

Interior design is more than just making a space look pretty. It's about creating a space that works for you, both functionally and aesthetically. A well-designed space can improve your quality of life, increase your property value, and improve workflow efficiency. So, whether you're looking to refresh your current space or are moving into a new home, interior design is key to making your space fit you.


Like Steve Jobs said, "Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works."

Interior Design Inspirations & Tips

Home-Interior-1

In today's fast-paced world, trends in interior design are constantly evolving, reflecting our changing lifestyles and preferences.


One trend that has captured our attention is biophilic design, which emphasizes bringing elements of nature indoors. By integrating natural elements like plants and maximizing natural light, spaces can achieve a tranquil, organic ambiance, enhancing the overall living experience.


As we embark on this blogging journey, we're excited to share our insights as designers and eager to hear your feedback.



Sustainable Living: Design for the Future

I know that the term "sustainability" can sometimes feel overwhelming, but it's a vital consideration for our future. As designers, it's crucial that we educate ourselves about sustainable materials and practices, and share this knowledge with our clients. Contrary to common belief, embracing environmental consciousness doesn't have to be costly or inefficient.


As stewards of both our clients' spaces and the planet, we encourage our clients to incorporate eco-friendly practices into our designs. This includes choosing local materials with longer lifespans and those made with sustainable methods. Join us as we explore innovative design for sustainable living.



Design Tips & Insights Across Industry Partners

We're excited to share design insights and expertise not only from within the design world but also from our diverse network of industry partners.


From contractors to photographers, we believe in a collaborative approach to design. Stay tuned for future posts covering a variety of topics aimed at answering the most common design questions across our industry.

Exploring Design Icons and Timeless Styles

As we journey through the ever-evolving world of interior design, it's essential to occasionally pause and look back at the trailblazers who have helped shape our industry. From the pioneering simplicity of Frank Lloyd Wright's organic architecture to Kelly Wearstler's bold and colorful maximalism in Interior Design, our industry is rich with figures and movements that continue to influence modern design. In upcoming posts, we'll explore the legacy of these design icons and how their principles can be seen in today's trends.


Case Studies

We are guided by our experience with new-build houses, condo renovations, office tenant improvements, restaurant remodeling, and more. There are many lessons learned and stories to share.


Home-Interior-Color Consultation-1

In a recent project, we had the opportunity to renovate a startup non-profit office in Sarasota. By installing wood-like flooring and applying few fresh coats of paint, we were able to completely revamp the space at a fairly affordable cost. This project highlights how simple changes can make a significant impact in a space.


Collaboration and Communication

There are many tools in todays industry that help increase communication, collaboration, and transparency with clients. From digital mood boards to client portals, the opportunity to collaborate on a functionally beautiful design has never been easier.


We are excited to dive into the tools and methods we use to increase collaboration and communication between homeowners and designers.


I'm excited to start this interior design blog and share my knowledge and experiences with you. Whether you're looking to make small updates or embark on a major renovation, we are here to help. Leave us any topics you would love for us to cover, and we will try our best to blog about them!
