Interior Design at Board & Vellum
From deeply personal spaces to dynamic shared environments, interior design has immediate and direct impact on the experience of a space.
Interior spaces are often the ones we get physically closest to, interacting with the layout of a space, actually touching materials, experiencing them up close and firsthand. Great interior design makes the places we live, work, and play not only functional, but delightful. We are a passionate team of designers, eager to collaborate with you to create beautiful, meaningful, finished spaces.
We design spaces that feel as good as they look.
Great spaces can inspire you, delight patrons, attract dream clients, effortlessly handle a busy family, offer sanctuary after a long day — they just feel right. So how does that happen? It goes way beyond pillows and paint colors, dipping into psychology and physiology to ensure our surroundings speak to us, and do so in a language we know and love.
Our holistic approach means we’re great at making spaces feel thoughtful and put together. We happily take on projects of all sorts and sizes — refreshing the look and feel of a single room in a home, updating an entire building to attract new tenants, a down-to-the-studs gut-and-remodel to start space planning from scratch — we’re into it.
But we don’t just help complete your physical space with built-ins, materials, fixtures, and finishes. We can also choose furniture, soft goods, accessories, art, and antiques that not only look good and make sense in the space, but perform as needed. Plus, we offer in-house procurement services so you don’t have to deal with sourcing, shipping, and storing your new products until your project is ready for installation.
Lived experiences informed by big picture vision.
Transforming design concept into materiality and physical space.
Well-designed spaces are beautiful, functional, and simply a pleasure to inhabit. It’s easy to make a space look great in a photo. Designing a space that’s great in real life — and that lasts — takes a lot more design finesse.
This success is most often achieved when big-picture design concepts and physical elements fit together cohesively — a result of a comprehensive set of design documents put together by an experienced team. From big picture concepts to the nitty-gritty details of selecting materials and products that suit your project, designing how they all fit together, and ensuring they are installed as the design intends, we have the skills you need to relax knowing you’re in good hands.
Our interior designers collaborate with you in real-time, discussing your goals for the space — how you want it to look, feel, and function. We’ll explore how those goals can manifest through design concept and vision, developing details as your project evolves. Together, we’ll create the awesome space you never even knew you could have.
Bringing design chops and technical expertise to the table.
Our interior design teams do so much more than “make things pretty” — though we most definitely do that, too. We back up our design finesse with deep knowledge of the many, many technical aspects behind a project.
Our understanding of building code, sustainable practices, and details about the installation and performance of materials and finishes anchors our designs in reality.
We regularly handle complex projects that require permits, collaboration with other design disciplines (both in-house and with other architecture firms), and coordination with engineers and other building and construction professionals.
We also work in Revit, a Building Information Modeling (BIM) application, which not only enables us to design simultaneously in 2D and 3D, but means our interiors team is working in the same digital model and set of design documents as the architecture and landscape teams on a project. This makes coordination across disciplines fluid, and ensures design moves suggested by one, are surfaced and critiqued by all.
What type of project would you like to pursue?
Single-family homes, commercial experiences, multifamily and mixed-use… we design spaces of all sorts and sizes.
What’s driving you to hire an interior designer? Are you seeking that Instagram-worthy space inspiring your patrons to market your restaurant or retail space organically? Do you long for the home of your Pinterest dreams? Can we help you transform your office to meet the needs of a hybrid workforce? Whatever it is, we can help.
Whether it’s a single-family home, a multifamily building, or a commercial space, we have teams adept at addressing the design challenges of your particular project type. Our designers understand the psychology of spaces, how everything fits and how it all flows.
And yes, we know all about the finishes and fixtures, too. No matter the type of project, we’ll hone in on your personal style — or help you define one that suits your business or brand — and articulate it in a meaningful way in your space.
Behind every stunning project is a collaborative team.
Creative ideas flourish in a multidisciplinary design firm.
As part of an integrated design firm, our interiors projects have the opportunity to be considered not only through the lens of interior design, but architecture and landscape architecture, as well. Collaboration is built into our culture with weekly design critiques that not only elevate the design of every project, but continuously expand our collective design language.
Of course, our interiors team also works independently — sometimes on projects that simply don’t need the services of an architect or a landscape architect, and sometimes partnered with other architecture or landscape design firms.
Our constant collaboration and exposure to varied project types makes us particularly well-equipped to be effective members of design teams composed in any format. We would love to hear what you have in mind for your interior design project.

Awesome! Feel free to explore the pages below, and — of course — feel free to reach out to us if you have something particular you’d like to ask.
Our portfolio of work spans across a spectrum of project types and scales. We don’t have a particular “style” either: we love traditional, modern, contemporary, you name it. Our goal is to work with you to design a project you love.
Considering a project? Or, just curious about something?
Send us your questions about design, architecture, interiors, landscape, LEGO rooms… Anything, really. We’re always eager to meet new people, and we’d love to get to know you, your project, and your goals.
