People, Not Projects

We’re Chic On The Cheap, an interior design firm in Sarasota, Florida that focuses on people, and not just projects. We’re a group of talented (and fun!) interior designers that value our relationships with homeowners, contractors, and vendors. You’ll find that we’re intentionally different — and that we thrive on our thoughtful approach to the design and remodeling process.

While many design firms charge a mark-up on goods and services, we do not. We believe that your money should go into your home, not into our pockets. Our smart strategies drive the decision-making process: we carefully consider each design selection with a goal of giving you a sophisticated and well-planned design, tailored to you and your needs.

Honest + Transparent

It's not about being cheap, but being mindful of your money.

Unlike other design firms, Chic On The Cheap was purposely built on the idea that we never mark-up the price of products or services of others. Our pricing structure is deliberately transparent, so there’s no question to where your money is being spent. We pride ourselves on being honest and up-front with clients, which is why an initial consultation is important. Maybe we’re not a great fit, and that’s okay, you can choose another design firm. But when we are a good fit? That’s where we truly collaborate and make your vision a reality.

beautiful & functional

A new-construction home for a young family of five. We created a classic and charming space that exudes elegant simplicity. Not only is it beautiful, it is full of function: every detail of this home reflects the family’s lifestyle and preferences.

portfolio

Over the past 15 years, we’ve been fortunate enough to work on many impressive projects. We understand that every project is as unique as the homeowner, and we take pride in our ability to translate client’s thoughts and ideas into a well-designed space, that looks as fabulous as it functions. Our portfolio features some of our recent work, including photos and designer-led video tours.
