Who on your team will we be working with?

You can typically expect Angela Rodriguez + two designers from the award-winning ARI team to be assigned to your project. You will also be introduced to your dedicated Project Manager, or key point of contact, so we can ensure your questions are answered quickly and that ongoing project information is well coordinated with contractors, architects, and vendors.

Behind the scenes, ARI's Design Operations Manager and Procurement Coordinator will also be working hand-in-hand with your design team for outstanding project delivery. At ARI, our in-house team is robust enough to effectively service even large/complex projects, yet personal enough that Angela works on every project. We're in the sweet spot!

How/ how much do you charge?

For each of our 3 signature services (Build, Transform, or Tailor) we use one, consistent format for billing. First, we assign a flat fee for the design portion of our process. The flat fee is determined by square footage and level of complexity. This is followed by hourly billing for the implementation/ project management stage. Yes, we are able to provide an estimated range of the hourly stage for you as well! No problem.

We have chosen and refined this method because we believe the process works best when we all know what we can expect from one another. Then we can stay focused on design, implementation, and guiding you smoothly to that big reveal moment!

What is your style?

At ARI, we thrive on creative variety. Looking through our portfolio, you'll see that some of our projects are more traditional, and some are more contemporary. Each is as original as the client we designed it for. It's true that some designers are known for one single look, and there's nothing wrong with that. But we think cookie-cutter projects sound boring! We love that each of our projects is different, because each of our clients is different.

That said, there are a few common threads throughout our projects. The spaces we design tend to be sophisticated, artistically balanced, and spiritually uplifting. We love texture, tailoring, and a nature-inspired color palette. We get really excited about well-conceived details, whether it be the perfect trim on a custom pillow, or the specific way the wall paneling will tie into your window. Although we work in different styles, tailored for each client, our work is recognizable- you know it when you see it.

What geographic areas do you work in?

Angela Rodriguez Interiors is based in Sarasota, FL. The majority of our interior design projects are located on the waterfront in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. We also work with clients in Pinellas, Charlotte, and Lee Counties. If you are interested in our interior design services between St. Pete and Boca Grande, you are in our primary area. Great!

That said... right now we are also working on special projects from New York to the Florida Keys. So if you feel we would be a good fit for one another, and have a project located outside of our primary area, please feel free to reach out. We'll be happy to hear from you and discuss together in detail.
