As the saying goes, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. But when it comes to designing your dream home, we know that the inside and outside are equally important. When you think about it, architecture and interior design go hand-in-hand if you’re looking to create a cohesive, functional, and beautiful spaces.

The TMS Design Studio

The benefits of using the same firm for both architecture and interior design are numerous. We streamline the entire process, and both teams work with the client simultaneously to ensure that the way the house is constructed fits seamlessly with the final design. Plus, it’s simply more cost-effective to work that way! So late last year, we introduced the TMS Interior Design studio as a resource for our clients. Now, we invite you to take a look inside…

The TMS Architects Design Studio

The TMS Design Studio is a place where our clients can work with a designer, architect, or both at once to map out their creative vision. We start by discussing a client’s goals and lifestyle. Does this home need to accommodate a large family? Will the homeowners be hosting plenty of parties? How can we best create a space that’s both practical and pleasing to the eye?

We use an iPad and a library of design books and magazines to get a sense of the client’s personal style. Then, we show our clients a curated collection of flooring, tile, paint swatches, fabric samples, and more to find the perfect materials to help the design come to life. When working alongside an architect, clients can also choose materials based on what’s next in the construction phase.

Though many architecture and design firms use studio space like this to work with clients, we’re especially proud of our studio’s modern features. Specifically, our lighting system! We use wireless LED lights to simulate in real time how a color or texture might look in your home. Whether a space is dark and secluded or bright an airy, this feature helps us choose the perfect materials for any room!
