Farha Syed 

Certified Interior Designer, RIDQC, DSA 

As a professional interior designer, one of my passions is helping busy families overcome the many challenges of decorating their home. My proven 14 step process, ensures that the design solutions I deliver will fit your style and color preferences, while adhering to your budget. One of my design specialties is creating a home that’s charming, full of character, and functions for my clients lifestyles.

My strong work ethics, honesty and integrity are the driving forces behind my commitment to deliver exceptional customer service to each and every client I serve. Seeing the smiles on my clients faces when we reveal their new space is icing on the cake!

My love for interior design and decorating started at a very young age, and I feel so blessed to have inherited this natural gift from my mom. She was a talented architect and furniture designer, and owner of a custom furniture design business in Pakistan. Everything she did amazed and fascinated me, and shaped me into the person I am today. She was my role model as a mother, designer, and business woman. As a young girl, I loved rearranging my bedroom and playing with different color palettes and patterns to see what I could create. Little did I know then that I was setting the stage for a future career. 

Later as a young adult and in college, I studied and received my degree in Marketing, which in hindsight has come in handy for my interior design business, but my true passion was interior design. With encouragement from my mom, I enrolled in design classes at New York Institute of Art & Design. Unfortunately, my mom passed away before I completed my coursework, but that made me even more determined and committed to finish. It was my way of honoring my mom, and thanking her for believing in me. 

This same passion and determination drives me to serve my clients and to provide them with well-thought-out creative and beautiful design solutions that reflect their personal style and works with their lifestyle. My well-defined, step by step design process that I use with each project helps clients

My well-defined, step by step process ensures that my clients understand and know what to expect throughout each phase of their project. And the final reveal days are my favorites! When I’m not busy with my family or client projects, I like to immerse myself in all things related to interior design. As a lifelong educational lover, I continue to learn and keep abreast of design trends, best business practices, and more. I also attend networking and design events, as well as, attend furniture market events to develop both personally and professionally. It would be my honor to serve as your preferred interior designer. How can I help you with your home?
