About Sandra Vila
A background in marketing and interior architecture, a love of travel, an affinity for antiques, an enthusiasm for fashion, a deep appreciation for the intricacies of interior design, and a respect for both historic and modern architecture are the foundations of Sandra Vila’s design philosophy. As principal designer, she personally works with her clients to understand their aspirations and expectations to create a home or estate that exudes harmony, balance and beauty.
Design is a process, a constant dialog. It is the process that invigorates Sandra. Establishing a solid relationship with the client, determining what will enrich each client’s interior design experience, responding to client needs, honing in on complexities and details, discovering those perfect pieces for each project – those are the reasons she would love to work with you.
Sandra holds Bachelor’s degrees in both Interior Design and Marketing, is an active member of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, the American Institute of Architects, the American Society of Interior Designers and the International Interior Design Association.
Established in 2005, we are passionate about making each project reflect our clients’ vision and overall design aesthetic. With our ultimate goal always being to deliver unique, bespoke designs no matter what your taste or budget, Sandra Vila Design House brings to life your vision using quality design, materials, furnishings, textiles and décor that is timeless and distinct. Our ability to combine finishes and furnishings that create and transform milieus of any style or genre is our signature.
Whether you are restoring, remodeling or building from the ground up, Sandra Vila Design House treats your project with the attention and respect it deserves. Often clients are unsure precisely what they envision for the final outcome of their home, but rather have a general “feel” in mind. Principal designer Sandra Vila works personally with you from the early stages of design conception to create a custom home exclusively for you. Getting to know you and how you live, considering your interests, recognizing what surroundings rejuvenate you, and having a clear understanding of your budget are all part of our process. Your input and approval are always paramount to every decision.
DESIGN BUILD & INTERIOR DÉCOR
As any work of art, design is a process. It grows and evolves until it is a finished product you can be proud of. Beginning with a comprehensive understanding of your needs, expectations and project scope, we develop an overall concept which lays the groundwork for working drawings and detailed specifications that are inspired by both form and function.
With purpose and thought, we take the intricate architectural and finish details such as coffered ceilings, floor patterns, tile designs, inlaid marquetry, hand forged iron and textiles into careful consideration. We continue to work in strong collaboration with architects and contractors during all phases of construction to ensure the design integrity and intent throughout the project. Following with the elements that celebrate your lifestyle and personality, we present furnishings, rugs, light fixtures, mirrors and objets d’art for consideration.
