We are thrilled to welcome Natalie Skramstad to our interior design team this month! Natalie joins Elsy Studios with an extensive background in design, project management and client service.

In her previous position, Natalie primarily focused on interior design for multifamily communities and model homes. During her time there, she honed her craft while developing floorplans and elevations for furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) presentation packages.

Natalie Skramstad, Elsy Studios Interior DesignerWe saw tremendous value in Natalie’s journey to Elsy. For a while now, we’ve been seeing the lines between commercial, residential and hospitality design blurring. This is due, in part, to shifts in the way we live and work.

According to a study by the New York Times, 43% of employed Americans work from home at least part of the time, driving a shift in the way both homes and workspaces are designed. Additionally, in a tight labor market, companies are using the design of their offices to attract and keep top talent. The space has to feel special – memorable.

In our work with clients across industries – from forward-thinking tech companies to more traditional law and accounting offices – we’re seeing this desire for blended space design. Happily, that’s exactly the experience Natalie brings to our team.

“I’ve always seen the role of interior designer as an opportunity to create unique experiences, and I believe that applies across project types, whether it’s a model home, an office space or a new hotel,” Natalie told us. “I was drawn to Elsy because of the care this team clearly puts into making sure each space is a true reflection of that client’s wants and needs. They take the time to think through every aspect of the experience, and it shows in the end result. I’m excited to grow my creativity in this environment!”

We look forward to adding Natalie’s perspective and expertise to our commercial client teams!
