Sheri Martin is an associate member of the esteemed ASID (American Society of Interior Designers), IDS (Interior Design Society), and NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association), all of which are national professional organizations comprised of dedicated designers specializing in quality interior design. Each of these memberships attests to a designer’s demonstrated expertise and commitment to the industry. Sheri served on the board with IDS from 2010-2013 as PR and Communications chair and secretary respectively.
Extensively trained at a local design center for 5 ½ years Sheri received both training and “real life” experience working with new home buyers – guiding their selections from the ground floor up. She was also the selected designer for all of the spec homes for Toll Brothers, a high volume, luxury builder. As with new home buyers this included everything from exterior details such as: roofing, brick, stone, stucco, lighting, doors, etc. to interior details such as paint, flooring, kitchen, bath, hardware, lighting, etc. While employed at the design center Sheri also became the designer for special design projects which encompassed model homes, store vignettes, commercial design projects and residential design. Along with her design partner there she was awarded The Summit Award and FEI Group Custom Home Design Award at the 2009 Home Solutions National Conference for one of their model homes in San Antonio.
In 1997 Sheri started her own design firm and has been designing spaces for both commercial and residential projects ever since. She enjoys creating spaces for her clients that are both visually stimulating and functionally satisfying. Each project brings new challenges, new specifications and each its own sense of satisfaction. Sheri never grows tired of seeing the amazing transformation that takes place and the joy and satisfaction of her clients when a project is complete.
I fervently believe that now, more than ever, in today’s difficult times that there is nothing more important than a home that exudes a personal sense of style in warmth, comfort, beauty and harmony. Ultimately a well designed home should provide a sense of well being to the homeowner as well as a space he/she can be proud of. My philosophy of design is a simple one: It is to create a home environment that meets the functional needs and style of the client with the extra flair and panache of quality interior decorating to create a space that not only makes a design statement, but also helps to “settle the soul”, and welcome family and friends. A much needed and thorough anecdote to the stresses and strains we face in everyday life.
The objective for Sheri Martin Interiors is to provide her clients with the ultimate design experience by first defining the client’s unique individual style, drafting their personal design plan and executing this plan from concept to completion. SMI specializes in combining moderate décor with select high end pieces to give the clients a polished, “high end”, yet warm and inviting space.
