As Rhode Island Interior Designers,  we redefine the essence of interior design by blending the classic allure of New England style with a modern twist, crafting spaces that teem with life and warmth. Our design philosophy transcends mere aesthetics, focusing on creating spaces that are not only inviting and fresh but also timeless in their appeal. This distinct balance ensures that each home we touch remains vibrant and welcoming, standing the test of time.

Design, to us, is significantly more than crafting a visual identity; it’s about narrating your unique story. At Cedar House, we’re not just designing spaces; we’re sculpting the backdrop for your life’s stories, ensuring they are told in the most authentic and beautiful way possible.

Our design philosophy is rooted in creating family friendly spaces that are simultaneously warm, welcoming, and undeniably fresh; intentionally creating an environment where your story takes center stage.

At the heart of Cedar House’s distinctive style is a masterful blend of traditional elements with a modern flair, creating spaces that are uniquely New England yet universally charming. Our approach centers around:

  • Warm Use of Color: The strategic application of warm colors adds depth, vibrancy, and a soothing ambiance to our designs.
  • Rich Wood Accents: These elements introduce a layer of tradition and texture, evoking the timeless charm of New England interiors.
  • Optimizing Natural Light: Our designs maximize the use of natural light, creating airy, bright spaces that invite relaxation and comfort.
  • Thoughtful Textiles & Furnishings: Patterns, textiles, and home furnishings are chosen with care to reflect contemporary sensibilities while nodding to classic influences, ensuring each space is both family friendly and timeless.
