"Throughout life, we evolve but we always stay true to our roots. I believe your home is meant to evolve with you. By designing spaces that fuses...
...your history (family heirlooms + traditions) but incorporate your current style and personality (favorite travel destinations + art), the space remains authentic to who you are and tells your unique story."

[ slāt stü-dē-ō]
When clay, shale, and quartz undergo metamorphism, it produces slate. Metamorphic rocks are hard to come by. They have to undergo immense pressures and temperatures to be transformed.
At Slate Studios, the interiors we design undergo their own metamorphosis. It takes an immense amount of passion, knowledge, and devotion to transform a space. We take pride in being able to provide this experience to our clients.

"I told Katie exactly what I wanted and Slate Studios delivered above and beyond my expectations!"
I was looking for an interior decorator and I am so glad I chose Katie! She did an AMAZING job! I am in love with my bedroom, dining room, and living room. I'll use her for all future design projects. Katie is very professional and she makes the process so smooth and exciting. I highly recommend using Slate Studios.
"After working together, now I definitely want to use Slate Studios to transform even more spaces in my home."
I have a gorgeous older home with lots of personality, but some odd quirks that weren't practical for my family. Many rooms were in need of renovation. Slate Studios was able to transform them to be functional, and beautiful. I never thought you could actually enjoy doing laundry. But thanks to my lovely new space, I do!
Not to brag, but our freebie is pretty cool.
