Westbooke Homes, Feb 2020
I had a fantastic time working with Kate McCloskey and her team on 2 Model Home projects in Fredericksburg, VA and La Plata, MD. I relied on Interior Concepts to:
1) help me understand my budget and develop a fully designed merchandising plan,
2) understand the market and come up with a design that is appealing to me and my prospective buyers,
3) make sure the design is as beautiful as it is functional, and checks the boxes on the current market and style for the buyers we are targeting,
4) complete the project on time and within budget, despite new construction’s crazy schedules.
Kate, Betsy, Camille and Samantha brought a tremendous amount of creativity and suggested ideas/layouts/colors that I never thought of or imagined before....and while it sometimes took me a while to get comfortable with these out-of-the-box ideas, I never regretted implementing any of them. It's very satisfying to walk into our Model Homes and feel like the space truly reflects the targeted buyers and not some design catalogue. All my visitors immediately comment on the beauty and uniqueness of our interiors, ask how it all came together and start considering hiring a designer themselves.
I am a busy professional, and Kate’s team was incredibly patient with me to make decisions and find time to collaborate…I honestly couldn't do it on my own without their expertise, hard work, professionalism and kindness. They're also just a fun, young, energetic team to work with. Dealing with budgets, schedule and install is highly stressful, and they were always on top of it, always patient, always willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything was handled properly, within timelines and budgets. I couldn't speak more highly of Kate, Betsy, Camille and Samantha (and of course my longtime friend Phyllis). I love our Models, will you use them again, and hope you get an opportunity to work with them too!
Craftmark Homes, Feb 2020
Craftmark Homes has worked with Interior Concepts over many years now, over many projects. Our latest community, Liberty, featured an upscale, luxe contemporary design from Kate, Ann and team at Interior Concepts. Not only were we impressed internally as a company, as the look and feel had been different than what we've done before, but our prospects and buyers have been raving about the design. Its even brought in neighboring competitors and their buyers/homeowners to see what Craftmark has put together thanks to the team at Interior Concepts! Aside from the incredible vision and design presentation, the team at Interior Concepts is excellent to work with as the project comes together. From presentation, to the interaction with Ann and Kate along the way as they complete the finish schedule, to then the final implementation and staging, Interior Concepts makes it easy and seamless for us to get our models up and running to be able to do what we are in business to do: Build and Sell homes! Thanks Kate, Ann and the entire team at Interior Concepts!
Insight Homes, July 2019
Kate and the whole model home team are so great to work with. They have done the interior design for six of our model homes, they are so easy to work with and have a complete handle on the vision they bring to our homes. Our clients remark all the time about the furnishings and the special touches throughout.
Insight Homes, July 2019
Interior Concepts is by far, the best design firm I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Their design work is amazing and their customer service goes above and beyond. I highly recommend this company and their amazing staff!
Osprey Properties, July 2019
It has been a pleasure to work with Interior Concepts on a few of our most recent multi-family housing projects. Samantha Butcher, Ann McGowan and Kate McCloskey have all been creative in both concept and design and in their ability to help us remain within budget. They listen to the specific needs of a project and offer long-term, quality solutions to our design challenges. We are continuously impressed with the final products and look forward to working with them again on future projects!
The Dolben Company, May 2019
Interior Concepts created a beautiful property for our company. They designed the interiors of a model apartment, clubroom, pub room, fitness center and multiple common spaces. Their choices were superb; from furniture to accessories to artwork, they created beautiful and inviting spaces. The quality of their choices was excellent and deadlines were fulfilled. Ann and Johanna were extremely professional and really listened to their clients to ensure they fulfilled the vision for the use of the spaces. I am thrilled with the outcome and highly recommend their services!
Drucker & Faulk, Feb 2019
Drucker + Falk contracted with Interior Concepts, Inc. to complete 3 clubhouse renovations. This team was amazing to work with and exceeded our expectations. Very easy to work with, listened to all of our concerns and made adjustments mid stream of the project when necessary. Worked closely with the architect and provided design/space feasibility feed back when something didn't make sense. We will certainly contract with Interior Concepts, Johanna Bruce and Samantha Butcher, again in the future.
Craftmark Homes, Sept 2018
Interior Concepts was wonderful to work with. Especially the team (Kate McCloskey, Lynn Lamar and Samantha Butcher) who assisted with getting our site model homes designed, staged and ready to sell. They are an amazing team to work with, with their sense of style, expertise, and professionalism.
Insight Homes, Sept 2018
Interior Concepts is, by far, my preferred design firm to work with. The level of service they provide is amazing and our model homes designed by Interior Concepts, have been ours and our customer's favorites, hands down. A company's most important asset is it's staff, and I have found the entire staff to be made up of an innovative, talented and customer service oriented group of people.
Greystar Properties, Sept 2018
Interior Concepts is a great design company. I have used them on numerous large-scale projects in the multi-family housing industry. Sam and Johanna are amazing to work with, their communication is above and beyond what I have experienced with other design groups. I just wish I had more projects to give them at the moment.
Lessard Builders, Dec 2017
Lessard Builders experience working with Interior Concepts as our partners for the interior design and vision for our new Saltaire model home was exceptional. The staff we worked with, from Kate to Betsy and all the other members of their team, were unequivocally second to none. The staff epitomizes professionalism and courteousness on a daily basis, and we particularly loved how they maximized each meeting with us by providing timelines for every part of the project.
Kate and Betsy’s vision and extremely organized plan was another noteworthy quality. From the selling features within the house, to our paint and tile selections, to the decor which covers every inch of our model, Interior Concepts worked with us to complete it all. Our newest model home showcases everything we at Lessard Builders had hoped, and it is because of their clearly defined roadmap that everything we were looking to achieve was perfectly executed.
Not only did Interior Concepts plan and execute perfectly, they went above and beyond to provide marketing ideas and materials to assist our sales team. When move in day arrived, the team at Interior was again magnificent; every furnishing and piece of decor was handled and staged with the utmost care. Lessard Builders highly recommends Interior Concepts and we certainly will contact them again for our future model homes.

Our client was blown away with all aspects of the project and would look to them in the future. Ovida Construction would highly recommend them for your next project."

Mitchell & Best Homes, Oct 2015
"I am the Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Mitchell & Best Homes, based in Rockville, MD, and building for 40 years in the Baltimore-Washington region. We have worked with Interior Concepts for many years. Every model home that they merchandise for us seems to top the last one, and exceed our expectations! We have worked with several designers on the team, and find them all to be extraordinarily talented, professional and in-tune with the marketplace. They are really adept at featuring the Mitchell & Best quality and "special touches" that we build into our product, all while staying within our budget and schedule. I was so pleased during the latest installation to see Company President, Phyllis Ryan, stop by just to check in. And their Marketing Director, Kate McCloskey, is always responsive and upbeat. I highly recommend the firm, and have included a few photos from their latest project with us - located at Highland Reserve, in Howard County, Maryland."
