About our Firm

Tuggey Interior Design is an award winning interior design firm that specializes in all aspects of residential interior design projects. These projects include: new construction, remodel, decorative, and furnishing projects.

Principal Designer and owner Damian A.Tuggey ASID is very comfortable working in all interior styles. She does both contemporary and traditional work while many projects can be considered transitional.

Tuggey Interior Design does not sell a “stylized” or “packaged” look. We prefer instead to listen and respond to the client’s individual needs and desires.

We work with the client’s ideas, budget, goals, and project conditions to help them accomplish their design objectives and create beautiful environments.

When a project involves remodeling or new construction, Damian is experienced at creating a team with clients and their architect, contractors, landscape planners, and other specialists chosen.

As a team player, Damian encourages open discussion and input from all members of the team. Strong communications within the team result in a well managed project that retains architectural integrity and details which are appropriate and relative to the needs and desires of the client.

The Tuggey team enjoys close communication with their clients. This relationship ensures each environment created is executed to the highest level of detail and service while maintaining a professional business relationship.

Tuggey Interior Design provides an experienced and accomplished team of support for your project. A full time purchasing and project coordination manager works with Damian in our office to provide attention and follow through for every aspect of your project.

Scott Melcer, an accomplished business professional manages the business and financial aspects of the company.

All contracts and proposals are competitive and are submitted to the client in writing. Budgets for services and interior furnishings are not exceeded.

Tuggey Interior Design does not act as a contractor. All construction materials and installation services are paid directly by the client.

We take great pride in being an ethical and honest firm.

We invite you to schedule a complementary appointment for an individualized personal interview with Damian at your home or in our office.
