In 2009, when Angela Rodriguez changed course from her large, global architecture firm career trajectory and founded a boutique interior design studio called Space as Art on the Gulf Coast of Florida, her vision was to combine her world-class experience with a more personal experience for her clients, across a variety of project types.
For the next 8 years, Space as Art served luxury residential, as well as commercial and hospitality clients. Angela and her team garnered multiple awards in each of these varied practice areas, which is unusual for an interior design firm.
Fast forward to 2017, when in order to more clearly represent her growing residential design brand, and to best meet the unique needs of her residential clients, Angela made the decision to separate her practice into two studios, and thus Angela Rodriguez Interiors was born. While Space as Art continues to serve commercial and hospitality clients, the Angela Rodriguez Interiors studio focuses solely on residential clients and their projects. ARI is proud to be a leading interior designer of luxury new construction, renovation, and turnkey home furnishing projects along Florida’s Gulf Coast and beyond.
For each of our valued clients’ unique homes, we bring our expertise and passion to create “interior design with soul.” At Angela Rodriguez Interiors we believe design directly affects, and should enhance, your life. Each element of space will bring you only joy and comfort. Wooden or metal stairs from, ceramic tiles or carpet, textile elements, and decorative objects, all this will best emphasize the beauty and comfort of your home. Design of the spaces we inhabit affects the way we function and the way we feel. It is the ARI team’s privilege and joy to elevate our clients’ lives through design of the homes they live in.
At Angela Rodriguez Interiors we pride ourselves on our professional and personal integrity as much as on our award winning design. We value the trust our clients place in us with their homes and dreams.
It gives us great joy to use our inside knowledge and resources to connect our clients with high quality furniture that fits their budget, as a better alternative to mass-produced retail stock. We prefer to source solid, American-made, upholstered furniture custom and straight from the factory as our go-to’s.
We follow scientific advances and product innovations that can impact your family’s wellbeing, so that we can guide you toward new options that support healthy indoor air quality, are kinder to the planet, and reduce your loved ones’ exposure to unnecessary toxins.
