“I’m not designing for my vision of my client’s lives. The finished space should be their home, not my image of how they should live.”

Design: To create, fashion, execute, or construct according to plan
At Storer Designs, our goal is to create a beautiful and functional space that will work for your life. Interior design is our passion and we take it to heart. No matter what the size of the project is, we make sure that every detail meets the vision and needs of our clients.
We begin the interior design process with an extensive interview to reveal exactly what the client envisions for their newly designed space. We pride ourselves in designing well thought out spaces, where aesthetics and function intersect so that each room we design is both livable and captivating. We ask each client to create their own wish list before every interior decorating project and we do our best to make sure every wish is attained.
As lead interior designer, Peggy Storer explains, “This process helps us to understand clients’ priorities. A written list helps make the project real for the client and it is exciting for them to watch that list come to life.”
After we have determined exactly what our clients are looking for, we establish a multi-faceted presentation to visualize our clients’ ideal space. This is where we make our clients’ “wish list” come to life in the form of plans, elevations, samples, renderings and a line item estimate for each project or area. Renderings are integral to our home interior design process. They allow for clients to visualize their dream space before the interior decorating process is complete so they are never surprised by the outcome. At Storer Designs, we ensure our clients are a part of the process every step of the way. Our clients must be comfortable with our interior design ideas and feel included throughout the entire process to ensure that their expectations, goals and wishes are always met.
For more elaborated construction projects, Storer Designs uses a team approach to tackle those interior design projects. The team will involve builders, architects, and home owners but we always take in consideration the needs of our client, the home owners, first.
As Peggy Storer explains, “Homeowners need an extra set of eyes and an opinion that will reflect the way they want to live. This approach allows for a seamless delivery of our clients’ desires and needs. It assures them their desires and concerns are being addressed. The architect creates plans to communicate with the builder, while the interior designer helps make sure these plans include what the client wants.
As an LEED certified professional, Peggy Storer is passionate about incorporating sustainable design elements into every interior design project. By combining function with design, the Storer Design team works with clients to determine their needs and establishes how to maximize a space while minimizing the environmental impact.
In today’s design environment, clients want to know their spaces will age well but they are equally concerned that their spaces will allow them to age well within those spaces. As a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, Peggy Storer addresses these needs creatively with style and function.
For clients who are particularly interested in fine art, Storer Designs can help guide them towards home interior design ideas that will enhance a particular space. Storer Designs works closely with artists for clients who are interested in customized work and have a particular eye for art and design.
