Interior Design that Fits Your Lifestyle and Personality

By Cristie Schlosser

Tell us a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

My company, SDG short for Schlosser Design Group, was launched in the late 1990s. Our primary focus was to design & renovate existing homes. We made a name for ourselves designing award-winning kitchens and bathrooms with custom designed cabinetry as our speciality. Today we are a full-service interior design studio collaborating with our clients, architects, contractors, workrooms, and other trades to provide complete services: Custom Cabinetry; Custom Window Treatments; Furniture; Art; and Accessories

Can you briefly talk about the importance of matching the way your home is decorated with your lifestyle and personality?

I am a firm believer that the home should be a direct reflection of your personality. Comfort with the style in your own space is primary. I believe you should live in every room. Buying furnishings, art and accessories you love instead of filling your room with the latest trend or what is on sale is my best advise.

What's the first step you would take to create this type of interior design?

The first step in the design process is getting to know my client. Knowing as much as I can about their morning routine to their favorite vacations creates an image in my mind that I can translate into the design and decoration of their project. I ask pointed and personal questions so we can work together to build their specific style

What are the most important aspects of personality and lifestyle that should be factored into interior design?

Beauty works best when it functions well. Our main goal is to create a space that works for your individual lifestyle and surrounds you with joy. Lifestyle is different for every family. Your social life, temperament, health and age impact our design solutions.

Is there anything that people don't normally consider when it comes to redecorating their house that they should consider?

People normally start with "the Look" and don't consider the function and purpose that suits their needs. Logistics are where we flex our expertise and offer solution; colors, textures and finishes are the "eye candy". We make sure you get full use out of every room by making it practical in use, exciting in it's design and exceeds your expectations

What advice do you have for a household where the members have personalities and lifestyles that aren't necessarily the same?

Everyone needs a space that they call their own. From including a signature piece that is important to one person to finding a balance between likes and dislikes is the choice you have to make together. We help our clients navigate through the decision making process and find the solutions that work for the family as a whole.
