THE REST OF THE STORY
Urban Grace Interiors was established as Erika Powell's response to the dichotomy she witnessed upon her arrival to Santa Rosa Beach years ago. In a time and place where new development was abundant, complementary design firms were lacking.
Erika saw the need for a full-service design firm - one that came on board while clients' homes were still a dream and ideas were yet on paper. Her recognition of this much-needed service led to the creation of Urban Grace Interiors.
Urban Grace has proven to be an asset not only to their clients but also to collaborating architects and general contractors. Being involved from the onset of design helps the selections fall effortlessly into place, making the building and renovating processes seamless and efficient. Once the heart of the project takes form, the visual aesthetics come into play and this is where clients begin to see their projects come to life through the details. Throughout the past thirteen years Erika and her team at Urban Grace have developed a strong rapport with their clients, architects and builders, often joking they can't archive files because clients keep coming back for more... a good "problem" to have that's been remedied with a fancy, large capacity computer server!
Erika's talent and hard work have transformed Urban Grace into a recognizable brand. Her attention to detail, impeccable taste, knowledge and experience combine to create spaces that are seemingly effortless and memorable. The work of Urban Grace has been featured in House Beautiful, Coastal Living, Southern Living, Traditional Home, Vie magazine and Erika’s blog was included in the Washington Post's Top 10 design blogs in 2010 and in the San Francisco Chronicle. In 2012 Coastal Living magazine invited Erika to design their showhouse in Rosemary Beach, FL. Together, Erika and her team offer the perfect balance of talent, experience and diligence resulting in projects that leave clients singing their praises, anxious to work with them again.
