Interior Furnishings, Lighting & Accessories

By |March 25th, 2016|

Interior furnishings, lighting & accessories coming together, with even more yet to come.  Not all projects happen fast, or even within a years time.  Shore Tower, located in the beautiful La Jolla, is still evolving.

All the furniture was custom designed with the intension of being used and abused, so, we selected a commercial furniture manufacturer to […]

Holiday Mindfulness

By |December 7th, 2015|

In all the hustle and bustle of the season, along with the normal every day life of work and family, I find myself reflecting on what really matters, at least to me, and having what I call “holiday mindfulness”.  It’s been a great year for Payte Miller Interiors, lots of forward moving growth, exciting projects, great […]

Custom Designed Chandelier Mock-up

By |April 21st, 2015|

Sometimes it’s helpful to physically “mock-up” your design for full understanding of what your trying to say.  The goal here is mutually rewarding; the client gets to say “ahhhh yes” and the designer gets to say “easy as lemon pie”.  With a quick trip to the arts and crafts store and some cheap cardboard, we whipped […]

There are so many exciting features to share about this call-center office that I don’t even know where to start.  I’ll give it a go, in hopes to capture the fun aspects I know are worth reading about.

The overall project needed to be price point conscious so thinking outside of the box was a crucial […]

We are in the midst of installing a new office in San Marcos for one of our favorite clients, Apollo Communications. My aunt Debbie is in town visiting and she’s helping us get it all wrapped up. Considering hiring her for future installs!

Residential install

By |November 12th, 2014|

Ever wonder how Designers pull off accessorizing a home after the remodel is completed and its time to layer the “fluff”?  It’s not always To The Trade only companies we order from, but good ol’ local retail stores where the masses shop as well.  This is what my day looks like today!

A mantle or not?

By |November 6th, 2014|

The stone has been installed so we can determine if we like the fireplace without a mantle, a 5″h wood block stained a bit darker than the beams.  Cabinets are stained as well.  Can’t decide…will keep you posted!
