Here at Kris Clay Studios, we offer the full range of interior design services employing standards in every phase of every project. We take historical, geographical, and cultural influences into account, as well as regional art and artisans, natural resources, local building materials, and construction capabilities.
Our design philosophy is simple: design for your market. We seek to incorporate a unique flavor into each project, involving ourselves with the custom design of interior architectural details, interior finishes and materials, furniture, lighting, textiles, artwork, and accessories. Each project we work on is custom created based on research done prior to the actual design.
