Sarah Hayes Design is a full service architectural and interior design studio based in Chevy Chase, MD, and serving clients regionally. My background in architecture gives me a unique perspective in designing new construction homes and remodels. My experience in furniture design and art informs my ability to source and select the best in finishes and furnishings. No matter the scope of your project, my ultimate goal is to guide you to your ideal vision of your home and make the collaborative process of creating it an enjoyable and memorable one.
Like any great working relationship, we will begin by truly getting to know you. We study your lifestyle, your daily habits, and your long-term goals.This information becomes the foundation of our design.
In the second phase, we turn our attention to your space. We take photos and measurements and find out how you use the space. This stage is incredibly important to improving the functionality of your home through design.
Once the design concept is approved, we begin sourcing the pieces its comprised of, like lighting, window treatments, fabric, furniture, and art. Once these items are received, they are inspected and stored for install day.
Once the construction phase is over, we place the furnishings and decor. When our shared vision is reality, we invite you home for the reveal. This is the most gratifying day of the entire project!
