maria kelly giles | interior design Design Philosophy

Design should complement the fluidity of our daily lives. We need spaces to stimulate well-being, provoke liveliness and provide comfort for varying lifestyles. As designers, we can accomplish these goals by understanding client needs and striving to deliver above and beyond their expectations.

retail design|chanel boutique As a design detail we looked we reviewed the fabrication in the Chanel clothing line. Some trends we found most traditional of the Chanel brand is its use of quilting and tweed. We used these fabrics as inspiration for the space. We included a life size quilted wall and used the tweed pattern as our display case shelving system.
