PLACES studio was created to bring ideas to life in the built environment through interior architecture and design. The concept of place-making in one of multi-facets where all senses are considered. A PLACE is one that is more than a location, more than walls; it's unique and built purposefully for its occupants.

Much like a brand is more than a logo, a PLACE is more than the spacial design. Our ultimate goal is to help you create a unique PLACE that creates memorable experiences, day in and day out, long after the dust of construction has settled.


Chelsea here, the principal behind PLACES studio and nationally recognized NCIDQ certified Interior Designer.

I’ve always been a creative soul but my design journey began as a graphic designer. After starting my first successful design business at age 20 and multiple passion projects since, I’ve developed a knack for using design and entrepreneurship to solve problems and challenges in marketplace.

I hold a Masters degree in Interior Architecture and Design and over the last six years have led commercial and residential interior design projects ranging from 500 square foot apartment renovations to 25,000 square foot office headquarters. After realizing I had a unique approach to interior design, my entrepreneurial roots kicked back in and PLACES studio was born.

PLACES studio brings an interdisciplinary design approach to each project in an effort to transform spaces into PLACES. We’re located in Washington, DC and Brooklyn, NY and available for projects worldwide.
