Think of us as your building design advocate.
Sort of like a patient advocate but without
the jello in a plastic cup.
Hear our clients talk to you in their own words and one of our premier contractors too-and ya'll that is a feat to get a contractor that really appreciates what a damn good designer® brings to the table without the ego getting the better of them.
We appreciate the creative collaboration process and so does he.
We want our clients from Destin, Florida to Fairhope,Alabama and back again to Pensacola to be excited about the experience of building their new home, their renovation project, or reimagining their 1982 Ethan Allen mauve and peach floral sofa with the little Laura Ashley ruffles. (It is time to let it go)
The most important thing to know is we love our work.
We specialize and excel when working on new construction jobs, remodels, renovations, furnishings projects, kitchen and bath redesign and are masters at space planning, finding innovative materials and creative problem solving.
We understand the 23,467 moving parts and relish in solving the puzzle even when you can’t find that last piece the dog carted off and chewed beyond recognition.
It's all ok. We are the firm that can create a new piece to solve the puzzle and save the day.
And the dog.
Whether it is a full home new construction interior design project or simply furnishings of a home you live in now but realize it is not about the “you” of today or is not reflecting a changing lifestyle, or simply not making you feel the love, we are the conduit to your inner most desires of how you want to live and experience your H O M E.
Even if those desires are locked away in a tight vault of insecurity about your ideas, fears on how to implement them, or if you have convinced yourself that you want what you see on Instagram, we will partner with you to discover what you want your story to be about and at the same time encourage you to just say no to catalog decorating and challenge the tired, the trendy and the trite.
We are a psychic design team of sorts who can channel your thoughts,wants,and needs into actionable–and stunning– results.
Trusting the process is vital to the success of a project with low stress, high expectations and a winning outcome.
Dedicated Experience is the stock and trade of In Detail Interiors and this is how our clients value us most.
Our portfolio reflects all levels of client budgets, styles, personalities–and degrees of patience with the process.
And we are most proud of our finished work, the reviews from clients and the long term relationships we have built.
We ask that you have a “willing suspension of disbelief” when working with our firm so we can ascertain your wants and needs and then truly create a vision that serves the function and form you desire.
On this note, we humbly and respectfully ask you refrain from quoting HGTV, playing dial a friend or engaging in social media design roulette. We practice a collaborative process with you– but not the local neighborhood watch design patrol!
If you are building a new home- you want Cheryl to have her eyes and pencil on those plans and our creative team driving the bus.
We provide expert interior design project management services to help you navigate the building process easily and on time while making decisions you will be happy with for years to come.
And come install day, you’ll have our qualified staff on site helping to manage the layout, styling, art selections, etc. that make even a new space feel lived in, comfortable, and complete.
The design offices and beautiful showroom are on the Gulf Coast of Florida in a hidden gem of a city- Pensacola-one of the best kept secrets in the south, but we work across the country and have mastered the remote process with a finesse that has taken years to perfect and believe me we have all the gray hairs to prove it. ( and by “we” that really means Liz!)
Meet Cheryl- Poobah, Rainmaker and Creative Chief
And Liz- VP of Everything and the "get it done" work wife.
Doing what it takes.
Did we mention we work anywhere? Vacation home in another city? Call us. A new build in another state? Call us. A chateau in France?
Call us RIGHT NOW PLEASE.
Owner, Creative Chief and saucy critic of the status quo, Cheryl Kees Clendenon, DGD (if you don’t know what this stands for, call us!), has been influencing the design industry with out of the bread box, no way in hell, ok maybe will consider that, wow what a great idea– transformative ideas –for 22 years.
Full time folks. No time off for good behavior. Never seemed to want it either.
Because she loves what she does more than kids love vacations at Disneyland.
Cheryl’s outspoken irreverence leads to confident and innovative solutions to the most challenging of design parameters with an attitude of fearless exploration of all channels to solve problems and create unique interiors that reflect the client not the design of the day.
A Business strategy advisor, kick in the butt mentor and passionate cheerleader to small business creatives, a savvy shop keep, sassy writer and of course the interior design day job keeps Cheryl (and the crack team babysitting her) busy but still finds time to be mom to a menagerie of 3 in the animal kingdom, wife to Randy.
Liz Lapan- VP of Everything
Clients ranging from San Diego to the New Jersey shore and all along the Gulf Coast have embraced the woman behind the woman who gets “it” done–whatever “it” may be.
An accomplished designer in her own right with an amazing sense of color and pattern, Liz can wear the designer hat in the morning, the project manager hat at noon and return to the office being the ultimate manager of all the things. Ya’ll have never met a woman like Liz-o-matic! Clients love her, Subs respect her and the team adores her.
If you are ready to embrace trusting the process, Liz might bake you a blueberry buckle thingy (she is from New Hampshire–we call it a cobbler here in the south but it is tasty –whatever a Yankee might call it!)
