PLACES STUDIO | Interior Architecture + Design


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 tells a story, heightens experience, and creates community 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 and photographer. 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 5 years have lead commercial interior design projects ranging from a 2,500 square foot boutique bar to a 25,000 square foot office headquarters. After realizing my knack for intersecting branding with interior design, my entrepreneurial roots kicked back in and PLACES studio was born.

We bring an interdisciplinary design approach to each project in an effort to turn spaces into PLACES.

PLACES studio is located in Washington, DC and Brooklyn, NY and available for projects worldwide.
