As an interior designer, I am most inspired when clients tell me they never want to leave their home after the project is complete.  The home is the nest.  It’s a space all your own, in which to celebrate life and seek refuge.  Our first priority at Lotus Interior Design is to create interiors that simply…. make you happy to be in.

How do we do that?  By understanding how to achieve good design whether we are furnishing a home or building a new one.

When we furnish, we love mixing colors and textures as well as brilliant fabrics and unique pieces to build a room.  Finding cool lighting and art are one of our favorite ways to make an impact.  We play with scale and form to achieve proportion and balance in each room we design.  We continuously work to push all design possibilities in order to achieve the best design.  We love beautiful things, but comfort and function are always a priority.

One of my favorite things is to sit down with a set of plans.  I love the process of studying space to uncover the possibilities.  Architectural elements, such as ceiling details, windows, trim and doors can transform a space.  We love nothing more than to reorganize space to fit your lifestyle.  Finding beautiful fixtures and interesting materials for each project is what sets it apart.

To design one’s home is a privilege.  I love to get to know my clients and how they live. I like to uncover new styles they were afraid to try.  Together, we explore new ways to use rooms or design space that fits their lifestyle. 

I’m proud to say that Lotus Interior Design has been listed amongst the Best Interior Design Firms in Virginia.



Lotus Interior Design

After years of working in architectural and design firms, I started my own company 13 years ago with the focus on providing a unique client experience.

The design process can be very overwhelming and I wanted to guide and inspire clients going through that process every step of the way.  I believe good communication, documentation and expertise makes for a successful project.

My client’s trust means everything to me and I count that trust as infinitely valuable.

We are your team and this team will not stop until the last pillow is in place.


Happiest Clients

“Betsy has designed four houses for us.  She’s done two large-scale renovations, a new construction project and all our interior furnishings. Her attention to detail and oversight of our projects was stellar.  There are a million choices that have to be made when doing any project and that totally overwhelmed me.  Betsy walked us through each decision with careful consideration of our budget and lifestyle. She saved us a ton of time and money by giving expert advice and helping us to avoid mistakes that I know I would have made on my own. Custom interiors are an investment, but the finished product is worth every penny!”

- Cindy Gaunt

“As most men know.... Happy Wife Happy Life.
 Knowing this I went into the endeavor of remodeling our home with mild interest and content with letting my wife make it her own. My only goal was to try and stay on budget in the process.”
“However, after getting to know Betsy and seeing the effort she was putting into our project, I became excited. Betsy didn’t really allow me to be uninvolved. She included me in every detail. Her personality and professionalism were magnetic. The finished project was more beautiful than I could have imagined. She has a true knack for what she does.  I thoroughly enjoyed our experience with her as our interior designer. Which is why she is helping us again on our next design project.”
-Aric Almirola, Driver NASCAR
“Betsy does an amazing job and I wholeheartedly recommend her to my friends and colleagues.   She has a passion for design and it shows through her ability to work with what you already have, what you are comfortable spending and her suggestions for your unique lifestyle.  In the end it's YOUR taste that shines through but in ways you didn't realize it could.   She takes the fear out of color choices, makes the experience fun and follows through until every last piece is delivered and in place."   

– Trish Vaughan

"My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Betsy during the construction of our new home.  We were under a bit of a time crunch due to the builder and had to make a lot of decisions in a short amount of time.  Betsy met with us at several different vendors and helped guide us with the coordination of the different materials, colors, finishes, etc.  She is super friendly and easy to work with and has a great eye with regards to design and style.  Our new home turned out better than we could have imagined.   Many thanks to Betsy for making the process fun and as stress free as possible.  I would not hesitate to recommend her to a friend.”

– Brian Feeney
