Mia Rao Design cultivates a genuine partnership with our clients. This personal connection is the foundation of our business and allows us to find your personal design aesthetic for your ideal interior space.
Our soulful, energetic approach to design makes the creative process exciting – and accessible -- for our clients. Drawing from the client’s personal history and lifestyle, Mia Rao Design infuses character into a space. The ultimate objective for each project is to achieve a well-balanced, beautiful interior which is functional and uniquely yours.
Established in 2001, our Chicago-based, full-service interior design team focuses on livable modern and classic design for both residential and commercial interiors.
Mia collaborates with her clients to surpass conventional design ideas and to welcome a fresh approach to creating the ideal space. Her trademark intuitive nature allows her to connect with a client’s personality, needs and lifestyle. She uses that connection to transform a space into a true reflection of its occupants.
Mia also draws design inspiration from the textures, patterns and colors she’s observed within nature and while traveling the world. She expertly blends styles and fuses a room into a cohesive, welcoming space. Mia’s designs elicit visual interest, depth and energy. Her arts-based education enriches her design awareness, affording her the ability to see a space as a blank canvas ripe for artistic and creative expression.
Many projects continue in her home-base of Chicago, as well as in California, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and throughout Illinois.
