As an Interior Designer, admittedly, I’m turned on by beauty. Beautiful things, beautiful places, beautiful experiences, beautiful people. I’m the type of person that has to touch and feel every interesting object I see. I love unique items, colorful accessories, and especially items that are full of meaning.
Designing a space for someone isn't just about creating a beautiful environment, but about creating a mood or feeling: power in a law firm, serenity in a bathroom. For each person, what conveys those feelings are drastically different. Establishing a personal relationship with each client is essential; a designer must know their client, what's important to them, what makes them who they are, not just what they like.
Cindy has amassed an impressive body of work with her portfolio ranging from new construction to remodel projects that encompasses work in all facets of residential and commercial Interior Design in Houston, Austin and the surrounding area.
Cindy Aplanalp's rare combination of university degrees in Interior Design and Business Management gives her a powerful competitive advantage in the design industry. Her lifelong passion for exotic travel continues to influence her work and subtle elegant traces of her travels in Europe, Asia, India and Central America are exhibited in her designs.
While influenced by such designers as Suzanne Kasler, Jan Showers and Larry Laslo, Cindy synthesizes her own fusion of an elaborate collection of styles and expertise to create beautiful, balanced and exceptionally functional environments for her clients. Her signature style is a crisp, elegant mix of sophisticated eclectic, with touches of traditional and a savvy use of materials, textures and technology. Designing from the premise of intention, Cindy places great significance on the inspiration and guidance gained from the idea that each element must offer a personal connection for the user.
