Design visions are a way of life for Arlene Critzos, founder and president of Interior Concepts. She holds a bachelor’s degree in design from Mount Vernon College. She also has Foreign Study League art degrees in the decorative arts from the University of Rome, Norwich College of Art, and St. Gabriel’s College.
When Arlene founded Interior Concepts in 1979, she quickly realized that by broadening the design capabilities of her company, she and her staff could work in multiple creative paths. This approach allows Arlene and her highly talented and tenured senior design group to create and complete work in the most professional manner.
Interior Concepts creates a broad spectrum of well-appointed designs, including family homes, beach homes, mountain retreats, large flats, and estates in some of the most prestigious addresses. Arlene’s most recent accomplishment was designing the Vice President’s residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.
Arlene and her associates at Interior Concepts have worked in the U.S., England, Spain, the Middle East, Malaysia and China. Arlene has been published in numerous national and local magazines and books.
Now in its 38th year, Interior Concepts has grown into a full service, multi-tiered, award-winning design firm with 50 employees, a 50,000-square-foot warehouse, its own delivery service and a top tier roster of clients.
