If you’re considering hiring an interior design firm, or have already taken the first step in partnering with us at Blakely Interior Design— WELCOME. I am truly excited about the opportunity to help you live more boldly and vibrantly, inside your home and out.
What does “living more vibrantly” mean for you specifically? Well, that’s a journey we’ll take together.
I believe that the most impactful design projects start with authentic relationships and getting to deeply know and understand you. We then follow this discovery with rock-solid processes that help us deliver a design that will truly inspire you and exceed your expectations.
That said, as I mentioned in this post, we’re not your typical design firm. We do things a bit differently — in a good way! Since choosing the right designer is a big decision, and a personal one, I want to take this opportunity to be an open book…
Today, I’m going to share exactly what you can expect from our time together:
- Our mission for you & your home
- Our design firm’s unique philosophy
- Blakely’s meticulously crafted 4-phase design process
- Our signature Vibrant Coastal aesthetic
- The incredible team that brings it all to life
No secrets here — if you have ever seen our portfolio, you know that color is at the core of everything we do. Why? Because we believe that the perfect balance of bold colors, patterns, and textures can inspire you to live your most vibrant life! We take that a step further, too, by designing to improve functionality, encourage community, and make your spaces feel uplifting.
In other words, we aim to transform not only our clients’ homes, but their everyday lives.
It’s a tall order, I know, but it’s the one that keeps us up at night thinking creatively about your project and waking up in the morning excited to put our skills to work.
Our Design Firm’s Philosophy
Our mission might be to inspire you, but our philosophy is inspired by you. Because the best designs? They begin with cultivating an authentic relationship with you.
We listen and take it all in… what you love and how you live in your home (or better yet, how you want to live). We’ll ask what excites you, what inspires you, and what you envision for your home. Because our job is to understand your vision beyond what you can express or imagine, we dive in deeply to get to the core of who you are.
And that, my friend, is where the magic begins.
Our Rock-Solid Design Process
Speaking of your design journey… I truly believe it should be as beautiful and fearless as your future new space. We want you to relax, trust in our expertise, and know that we’ve got your back.
How do we do this? With a system that works. Our meticulously crafted 4-phase process, to be exact. It has been finely-tuned over the last decade and is now polished to perfection. Our process ensures that your project runs seamlessly, providing you with a stellar design experience and remarkable results.
In addition to pre-set deliverables, you can expect weekly status reports from our design team. These will include detailed updates on design time spent, progress made, what we’re currently working on for your project, and what’s coming up next. (Our clients always look forward to these!)
Only rock-solid design processes can get us to a final destination as beautiful and personal as this!
Our Vibrant Coastal Design Aesthetic
I truly believe that you should hire an interior designer whose work really resonates with you. Your home is extremely personal and influential, and you deserve to live in a place you love! Yes, even if that means you go with another firm.
It is a blend of vibrant color, soothing coastal vibes, and a crisp, clean approach to design that makes every space bold and breathable. We believe that each of these features plays a role in creating a home and life that inspires you to live beautifully and fearlessly.
I absolutely love our team and personally chose each member for their talent (in design, project management, client care, etc.) and for their incredible personalities. I think of the Blakely team as a second family that will always have each other’s backs — just as we’ll have yours.
Size-wise, our team is small enough to be on a first name basis with you, but mighty enough to accommodate a large range of projects, from just a few rooms to multiple homes. (Many of our clients have vacation homes and primary residences, and we have designed both).
We can’t wait to meet you!
P.S. Our studio’s design library houses thousands of fabric and color options to choose from. It’s the perfect place to create a unique design, and give us the ability to present them to the client spectacularly.

And Just in Case You Want to Hear It from Someone Else…
“Our experience with BID surpassed our expectations and we loved the energy, excitement and professionalism of the whole BID team. We had no idea what we were getting into and hadn’t furnished a home this size. It was important to us to find a partner who would take our feedback and we found that with BID.
You opened up our thought processes on design and style and did things we wouldn’t have thought of. From pre-construction to woodworking, from plumbing fixtures to a completely furnished home, you knocked it out of the park and provided us with a home that we never want to leave!”
— Beth D., Full Service Design (Whole Home)
