Design is more than our "profession"...
it is our way of life!

 

NEW BUILD

Our approach is providing a holistic view of the business whereby an impression is created that marries the building exterior or storefront with the interior atmosphere, and where the floor plan functions critically well for its occupants.

RENOVATION

Whether you inherit an existing space or your company is evolving, the designers at Deb Stone Interiors are prepared to guide you through the creation of a space that
is uniquely yours.

STYLE TRANSFORMATION

By intuitively and creatively working with your vision and the existing space, we offer design services that accentuate positive attributes, while incorporating the elements of design to transform the space into a current and inviting environment.

Our clients' vision inspires us!

Our passion for design shows through in the details, as we gain inspiration from our clients expression of their business goals.  Beginning with programming, and progressing throughout the design process to construction completion and occupancy, our enthusiasm persists, culminating in a highly stylized new space.

 

PROGRAMMING

Programming is the primary stage of our design process. Only through understanding critical information relative to the function of the space may we design to meet the client’s needs.  In this stage, we extract information concerning user interaction and adjacency requirements, circulation needs, equipment specifications, furniture details & locations, and infrastructure parameters. Organizing these requirements in written and graphic format is a key component in understanding how we may reach the client’s design goals, while also achieving proper function, safety and code compliance within the space.

SPACE PLANNING

In space planning, we apply the client’s detailed program information to the spatial boundary in developing a floor plan that addresses operational needs of private offices & work spaces, common / communal areas, and circulation patterns. Three-dimensional considerations, such as establishing desirable sight lines and adhering to accessibility requirements, are essential components in our space planning process. We strive to make the most of the given space while incorporating organization, order, flexibility, & efficiency into floor plan alternatives.

Finishes Selection

The successful selection of interior finishes is highly dependent upon our thoughtful consideration of materials’ performance factors relative to the client’s needs, financial parameters, and desired aesthetic. Our demonstrated knowledge of commercial finishes specifications & experience in working within the client’s budget, afford our clients the opportunity to consider the highest standards in performance AND aesthetics when exposed to the multitude of materials. We take pride in selecting the most current and project appropriate materials & finishes that convey the design concept in texture, pattern, scale, color & proportion.

Design Development

Compiling client specific program information, preferred floor plans and the most desirable aesthetic to create a comprehensive design that speaks to the users of the space in a cohesive manner is our goal.  We achieve this goal through our detail oriented approach & collaboration with other design professionals (architects, engineers & consultants) in the design development process. We communicate comprehensively with general & sub-contractors in executing a project to achieve the most valuable outcome in our client’s ultimate interest.

CONSTRUCTION
DOCUMENTS

Development of the construction documents is based upon the final design approved by the client and includes dimensioned floor and ceiling plans, finishes schedules and specifications, millwork elevations, sections & details, and finishes assignment drawings.   They are created in coordination with other design professionals such as architects & engineers, and serve as a vital communication tool for new construction or renovation to the existing space.

FURNITURE SPECIFICATIONS

Our approach to furniture specification is a budget conscious and performance-based selection process which focuses on the comprehensive design outcome rather than the appeal of a singular item.  Creativity, expertise and resourcefulness are our strengths in presenting options to the owner for final selection and specification.

SIGNAGE DESIGN, PLANNING & PROCUREMENT

Our signage services are turn-key, from planning through conceptual design and installation, enhancing the overall design aesthetic while meeting a functional need.  We provide interior as well as exterior architectural interior signage solutions that appropriately and professionally communicate the intended message & brand aesthetic.  Dimensional letters, carved signs, way-finding elements and Braille plaques are just a few of the sign types we have successfully designed, procured and installed for our clients.

DESIGN, PLANNING &
PROCUREMENT

Visual communication of a design enhances the sentiment, style or mood sought for the space.  Our thoughtfully developed or procured art and accessory items uniquely arranged within a space create a unified composition of architecture, design and emotion about the space.

CONSTRUCTION
ADMINISTRATION

Accurate finish & construction details embody the character of an interior space.  The Deb Stone Interiors team prides itself in following through with the project through conclusion by reviewing & responding to shop drawings, attending construction meetings, communicating with trades representatives, overseeing finishes installations and reviewing the project completion by producing a punch list of open items.

STAGING &
MERCHANDISING

In the retail arena, an understanding of merchandise arrangement, product emphasis / presentation/ staging, and customer circulation through a space is critical toward maximizing sales.   We have been successful with creating an effective display plan and directing product placement in an aesthetically appealing manner with the intention of promoting purchases.

IMAGE BRANDING

Whether you have an established brand that you would like to update, or need to establish a new brand identity, we are accomplished with developing logo designs which speak to your intended audience in an eye-catching and distinctive fashion.  We have experience with designing marketing resources, banners, and presentation materials consistent with your image brand.

PRESENTATIONS

While we are accustomed to artfully communicating interior design concepts and finishes through design boards, 3-D renderings, and free-hand sketches, we have also demonstrated proficiency in supporting the community through leading educational workshops.  Our presentations are structured and dynamic, and may be casual or formal where we combine our visual representation of our design with a verbal validation of the concept.

 A design team that is committed to a collaborative approach, utilizing a multitude of professional talents has been the key to our success.

 

Founded in 2005, Deb Stone Interiors has been multi-faceted in our approach to cultivating commercial interiors, by providing an array of interior design services which positively reflect on the client’s brand in health care, corporate, retail and hospitality environments.

Deb Stone Interiors consists of a team of very talented designers, each of which offer the client unique areas of expertise.  A collaborative approach and integration of talents was the vision Deb Stone sought to achieve when she assembled the current group of design professionals.

We have worked with clients from concept through completion to achieve an exceptional design objective.  Through establishing an interior design program with the client (assessing spatial needs of & interactions between users), providing conceptual planning, space planning & design options, budget & design development (including drawings & specifications), assembling interdisciplinary teams for a collaborative effort, and managing the project through completion, the owner’s intended goal is attained.

Whether developing a new interior, renovating an existing facility or seeking to transform an existing space, Deb Stone Interiors offers creative solutions to enhance the existing architecture or create new architectural elements for maximum visual impact. Attentiveness to our client’s views, responsiveness to their program requirements and diligence with following the project through to completion within budget are our strengths.

DEB STONE

Practicing in the interior design field since 1999, Ms. Stone brings a varied and unique background to the industry.  Deb Stone achieved a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Bloomsburg University and Master of Arts Degree in Public Administration with a concentration in Health Care Administration from Marywood University.  Ms. Stone worked as a licensed nursing home administrator for 10 years before returning to Marywood University for coursework to pursue a new career in interior design.

With her diverse educational background and management experience, Ms. Stone brings a passion for excellence to her career as a commercial interior designer.  She believes that “the human response to the physical environment is critical to physical and emotional wellness, a positive attitude and ultimately to productivity in the work environment; it simply cannot be ignored.”

As a commercial designer, Ms. Stone has delighted in the opportunity to impact health care, as well as corporate, retail, and hospitality environments through her team approach to design concepts.  “’Perception is reality’ was a phrase I was accustomed to hearing as an administrator…I find this to be true in contract design.  The interior must meet a multitude of perceptual needs of its end users including business owners, their employees, clients and visitors.  It can often be a challenge to synchronize a corporate identity with the consumer’s expectations; however, by respecting the owners’ knowledge about their product, service, or brand, a harmony may be achieved for a successfully functioning space.”

JANINE VERDETTO

"I have been interested in design and how it affects us for as long as I can remember. This fascination and attention to detail led me to a great opportunity that I was fortunate to take in 2005 with Deb Stone Interiors. It is more than just what I do.  I take great pride and responsibility in taking the essence of a space, the needs and desires of its occupants, along with the principals of design, and creating an environment that reflects you … your purpose … your heart and soul."

TARA WEAVER

Tara graduated Marywood University in 2007 with a Bachelors of Science-Interior Architecture Design.  She received her Masters of Art- Interior Architecture Design in 2009.  Tara has worked with several architectural firms throughout NEPA, Commercial Kitchen Designers, and Interior Designers over the past nine years.

“As a designer, my goal is to create the space the client envisioned without them realizing it was their vision to begin with. If they love something, you make it work!"

"My design belief is simple…It’s all about the details. Independently they’re important, but when combined, they truly make the design. Color is not scary or permanent. Take a risk and be daring! Great design comes from those that break the rules!”

 

MANDY WELMAN

Mandy has worked with numerous Architects, Engineers and Developers over the past sixteen years, as well as working independently on numerous projects across the United States - including casino interiors, corporate headquarters, and many other commercial projects since 1999.

“I have always believed that great design begins with understanding the needs of your client, which means each project is unique. That is one of the many fascinating parts of this job - getting to know the amazing variety of people I do in the course of my projects."

"As a Commercial Designer, I try to draw on a number of resources- these include a history of design, use of custom materials and having an eye for the details of each project. My ultimate goal is to create an environment that embraces the occupants with style, comfort, functionality and durability.”

Nicole graduated Marywood University with a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Architecture & Design in 2013 and earned her Master’s in Interior Architecture & Design in 2014.

Nicole offers "In my design work, I give a lot of attention to the application of materials and textures. These elements contribute a great deal to the character of the space and leave a lasting impression in your experience. A project is successful when you capture the essence of the client and can project that into the places they inhabit.”

BRIANNE BRADY

Brianne graduated from Marywood University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture and Design and a minor in photography. She enjoys using the experiences she has in both fields to enhance her practice of the other. “Considering an environment from both a photographic and design perspective has lead to me to a stronger appreciation for and understanding of composition, clean lines, strong geometry, textures, lighting, and consistency.”

Before starting with Deb Stone Interiors, Brianne worked in the Healthcare branch of interior design. “It can be a challenge to create welcoming or soothing designs in healthcare where the standards are strict and often limiting, but in a potentially alarming environment like a hospital, good design that makes the user feel safe and calm is crucial. I love taking on that challenge.”
