Bates Design Associates is an award winning, full service interior design firm. While we specialize in high-end interiors, we work on projects of all sizes. Residential and commercial interiors continue to be our focus. Principal, Kim Bates, ASID, CID believes in the process of design: Collaboration with clients, showing them what possibilities can become reality and then carefully planning to produce sophisticated, classically elegant and welcoming spaces. We believe in the science of beauty – elements which are common to all humans and promote not only physical beauty, but a sense of well-being. In addition, we trust high-quality products and workmanship, provide highly organized management and sensibly sustainable options. Understanding of architectural elements and a wide variety of styles helps us to pull together spaces that function well and look fabulous.
