About the Company
The spaces where you live and work can say a lot about who you are. Too often, people adapt themselves to their environments, rather than adapting their environments to suit themselves. Small changes can help you see and enjoy your space in a new way and more comprehensive design can help match your whole home or workspace to your personality and way of living. McGuire Architectural Interiors collaborates with people to help them create environments that enhance their lives and reflect who they are and want to be.
A sensitive analysis of your space and site and open dialog about your ideas and goals establish a clear direction for your project. Cues from the space itself, your daily schedule, your views, and even how you dress suggest ways I can help you design your space. Conversations about your taste identify other ways that we can use color, pattern, texture, and lighting to fine tune the details. McGuire Architectural Interiors mixes these ideas with clarity, warmth, and wit to help you create a home or office that is a natural extension of yourself.
