Design That Tells Your Story


At Interior Matter, we believe that a well-designed space is vital for a wholehearted life. Our surroundings profoundly affect our daily experiences, emotions, and well-being. Interior Matter’s mission is to transform spaces, so they mirror our clients’ uniqueness and aspirations, enhancing their lives in every way. We listen to your story and collaborate with you to create a space that genuinely supports and delights you.

Through a collaborative process, we listen intently to your desires and aspirations, then translate them into a design plan that reflects the essence of who you are. Home should be an island of safety, but also where you truly feel alive as well.

Honoring the Past, Designing the Future

Our HAUS IM studio embodies the very essence of Interior Matter. This historic space was once a vibrant hub for the local LGBT community in the 1970s, a legacy rich in activism and uninhibited self-expression. We honor this spirit by fostering a welcoming and inclusive community around design, a space where collaboration, inspiration, and genuine connection flourish.
