About Stewart Design Group
High Quality & Creative Interior Design & Real Estate Staging Services
We, at Stewart Design Group, provide high quality, creative Interior Design and Real Estate Staging services for both commercial and residential clients. We manage the entire design process from design concept to complete project management. We readily understand client preferences and are able to translate them into specific design suggestions that meet both functional and aesthetic needs. We can do this because we use a proprietary Visual Exercise that guides the design process. We are also able to do quick on-site sketches to convey design ideas to clients, and thus gain consensus on design directions and decisions.
Our staging business is a natural outgrowth of our design business skills. We respond quickly to understand market timing needs, staging budget constraints, and seller needs. We have worked almost exclusively for high-end residential brokerage offices that focus on luxury homes and integrate staging as part of their marketing strategy.
In the commercial arena, we have specialized in banking interiors - small community banks that want their interior to be part of their brand. We have also assisted a variety of small companies with using their business interiors as a consistent part of their corporate brand identity.
Our project management skills and contacts allow us to coordinate high-quality trades people and manage small to large construction renovation projects.
On-going goals are: to remain creatively-inspired so that we can inspire our clients, to expand our existing client base through a network of referrals, to continuously improve our skills and product knowledge so we can be of the most benefit to our clients, and to embrace new technologies and products that relate to Green Interiors (both residential and commercial) to do our part for the planet.
