About Knapp Interiors

Meet Elizabeth

The Who, What and Why of Elizabeth Knapp

When I recently asked a friend ‘How would you describe what I do for a living,’ she looked at me and laughed – and then followed up with, “What don’t you do, Elizabeth?” And I have to admit, she has a good point.

While I have over 15 years of experience as an interior designer, as I have evolved, so has my business and even my clients. Thus, I’m proud to draw from my strong foundation in both residential and commercial design. Along with recently being named one of the country’s Top 18 Boutique Designers by Boutique Design Magazine, I’m NCIDQ certified, a professional member of American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and received my BS in Interior Design from FIDER-accredited Colorado State University.

These days, I find that decorating and design are as much about individual lifestyle as they are about making over a room, a home, a hotel suite or even an entire business space. I love getting to know the people I work for intimately – because in the end, what I create will be an extension of not just them, but also their lifestyles. And this goes far beyond finding the perfect fabric swatch or hard-to-locate piece of furniture. (Although I still do that and I love when I get to.)

Because I have worked on everything from ultra-contemporary beachside hotels to mid-century modern clubs to understated country retreats, eclectic apartments and even a dude ranch, I have a very strong working knowledge of what it takes to create styles that speak to individual taste – be it for a residential or commercial property. Whatever you can imagine (even if you can’t totally describe it), I can happily bring to fruition. It’s all about originality and creating a space, a home or an ambiance that says everything you want to say about yourself (or your business).

The last thing I’d ever want is for someone to walk into a finished space and remark that, “This looks like page 24 of a catalog I just got in the mail.” My approach is all about getting to know you, your needs, your goals – and then bringing them all to fruition.

Simply put, when I’m asked ‘What my design style is,’ my answer is ‘Yours.

10 Reasons for Hiring an Interior Designer

1. To Provide Solutions

Each project, large or small, presents challenges – whether it is a lack of storage, poor traffic flow, color scheme, unusual window sizes or a need to maximize light and space.

2. To Prevent Costly Mistakes

So many choices, too many options – not to mention questions concerning whether to choose one product over another. There are so many things that are hard to know unless you have encountered them dozens of times before like I have.

3. To Provide Resources

There’s a world of furnishings, fabrics, case goods and accessories that are available “to the trade only.” I have access to local and national manufacturers and products that are otherwise unavailable to most consumers.

4. To Help You Stay Well Connected

Design is only as good as its execution. I work with the best workrooms, carpenters and painters and have the clout to make sure that prices match the quality.

5. To Provide Guidance

I know sources well enough to edit the options and offer seasoned advice to guide you through the myriad of design choices.

6. To Provide Convenience

I save you shopping time and work on-site. In other words, I bring the “store” to you.

7. To Set Priorities

I can help allocate your “design dollars” to let you know how best to spend your money now and save future phases of your design project for later.

8. To Be Your Liaison and Advocate

I work with trade-people and manufacturers regularly and therefore have more leverage to get things repaired or replaced when necessary.

9. To Help You Work Through Opposing Tastes

I can be the third party to mediate taste and style between spouses, business partners or whomever else is involved in the decision making process.

10. To Get the Job Done

I make sure everything is completed. Often when a project drags on for months, some might be inclined to leave a few details undone if they are doing it themselves. It’s my job to see that every aspect of the project is completed to your satisfaction.
