At Ambiance Interiors, we strive to not only make interiors beautiful, but to make them one of the great joys of home ownership. We pride ourselves in providing truly personalized and excellent service on all of our projects. From design inception to the final installation, we personally oversee all of our projects and manage every detail in between. We work on all aspects of interior design, including window treatments, furniture, floor coverings, wall coverings, bedding and accessories. We also have extensive experience in managing construction projects, be they new or remodels, and have a network of tradesmen and installers to assist us on projects.
We appreciate that you have many choices when deciding who and how to decorate. Our friendly, approachable staff of professionally trained designers, can help you feel confident every step of the way, bringing over 50 years combined knowledge/experience base to the table.
Our goal is truly to design spaces for the way you live. Call us and experience the difference.

At Ambiance, we pride ourselves in providing excellent service that is as custom and adaptable as our designs. We aim to find a process that will accommodate our clients needs and we are flexible in how we structure our service. The two most common ways that we work are our retail service, and our consulting service.
This service style is the most popular amongst our clients. We provide full decorating services and consult in all aspects of interior design. We personally oversee a project from the first appointment to the last installation and bring a team of experts to handle installations, electrical, painting and plumbing needs. In this case, we make our income from the products we sell, much like any other retail establishment, and waive our consulting fees. Our prices are set fairly to create value for our clients, while allowing us to give the time and expertise to every project. This is truly platinum level customer service at competitive retail pricing.
This arm of our business is generally best suited for new construction projects or remodeling projects where we are retained for consulting services but not for product procurement. With this service, we perform plan reviews/revisions, specify building and finish products, and assist our clients every step of the way from demolition to move-in. We bill based on time and materials for this service and our basic consulting runs at $175 per hour.
