Studio

Our collective expertise includes interior architecture, furnishing, decoration and point of view.

Philosophy

We believe in bright, informed, and functional design that values both people and the spaces they inhabit. We take time to understand the preferences of our clients, pushing their experience to the forefront of the process, rather than relying on aesthetics alone. We are dedicated to making interiors that enhance quality of life.

Relationships

We’ve built a network of people who are invested in doing things the way they should be done. From architects and contractors to fabricators and artists, these professionals help us execute our designs, and we trust them enormously. Working with OreStudios means accessing our network of the best in the business.

Process

Flexible and responsive, our team collaborates with architects, builders, and makers to create meaningful contributions to each stage of a project. The breadth of our work spans multi-room renovations to new-builds of whole homes, often working on a project from its earliest stages. With a deep understanding of both traditional and contemporary design, we guide clients who have a clear aesthetic perspective as well as those who might need help finding one.  

Culture

We're a boutique firm of Seattle natives who pair warm professionalism with unwavering expertise. We believe that trust is fundamental to success, which is why we take the time to get to know our clients. We enjoy cultivating lasting professional relationships that are true partnerships. We are always thinking about how we can improve the lives of our clients, a process driven by intention, efficiency, and a distinct vision.
