Valerie Pasquiou | Residential & Commercial Design
Undeniably modern yet able to blend different world cultures with a variety of historic periods, Valerie Pasquiou’s designs are refreshingly unique and consistently timeless. And though HOUSE & GARDEN named her one of ‘The 100 Best Designer in the U.S.’, Valerie is humble about her highly sought after signature style… as if it were formed out of necessity.
“Ask someone what they remember seeing at a store, restaurant, or office they’ll probably mention the biggest, the brightest, or the loudest things. Personality and essence are expressed in physical surroundings and have the power to entertain, educate and entice.”

Reflecting its founder’s spirited personality and love of adventure, Tom Stringer Design Partners creativity is simultaneously rooted in the classics while offering clients a multi-layered and modern approach to color, texture and personal interests.
With the same energy that motivates his own love of travel and collecting, Tom and his creative team incorporate their clients’ passions into their design schemes—creating a kind of relaxed glamour that’s both deeply personal and truly unique.
House Beautiful magazine repeatedly names Tom Stringer Design Partners to its list of the nation’s top interior design firms and the studio’s work has been featured in many publications, including Elle Décor, Traditional Home, Luxe and CS Interiors.
“There’s no one-size-fits-all ‘look’ to our projects,” says Tom, “Each is specifically tailored to a client. If we do our job well, at the end there should be no trace of us— just a happy client.”
David Micheal Miller Associates | Residential Design
David has been practicing interior design for over twenty-five years, establishing himself in the Southwest after completing his interior design training in Chicago, Illinois.
Founded in 1989, David Michael Miller Associates began as, and continues to be today, a boutique residential interior design studio, renowned for creating interiors that are rich, understated and aesthetically enduring.
“When you enter the home you’re immediately aware of a sense of calm, restful luxury.”

“As with all Miller interiors, the design for the home recedes into simple elegance while remaining provocative and evocative: this is the David Michael Miller paradox.”
