Interior design and decoration:
.. with style and comfort built in!
What we do:
Our interior design style employs strategies with a custom, contemporary and classic approach. We offer a broad range of interior design/decoration services for residential and commercial customers.
Based on our clients needs and aesthetic, our plans include a wide range of interior design elements such as choosing building materials, tiles, flooring, window treatments, wall paint colors, lighting systems, hardware, fixtures, textiles, fabrics and furnishings.
While specializing in wall color, room lighting and overall space planning, Belltown Design works with home and business owners, architects, designers, and builders.
Who we are:
Paula McHugh – colorist and interior designer and interior decorator
The interior design and decoration field brings everything together for me! It combines a passion for color, light, and space, a love of fashion, design, and teaching, with the enjoyment of collaborating with people to create something fabulous!
As a child, I intended to become an artist and eventually went to art school fully motivated to do just that. One thing led to another, and a few years went by, and I was painting, exhibiting and selling my work in the US, and abroad. This good fortune led me to become a teacher of Art History and Painting both here at home in the Northwest, and in the beautiful south of France.
Having the opportunity to work creatively in a variety of settings including retail, fashion, design, and the arts, I believe as a designer it is my role to actively listen to my clients and offer insights to help them make the right creative decisions.
