We have been designing magnificent interiors in the Northwest and beyond since 2007. We have the pleasure of collaborating with world-class builders and artisans whose partnership makes our projects truly shine. Our work has been featured in countless publications, and we have won local and national design awards along the way. We believe every project has its own style, challenges, and framework. We find what our clients most appreciate about us is our ability to create a space with function and beauty, one which is designed within a realistic timeline and budget. We bring the lost art of consistently exceeding our clients’ expectations. We strive for a seamless project for our clients every day at Angela Todd Studios.
I am a live wire full of creativity, passion, drive, and enthusiasm. I never felt like I chose interior design as a career; I felt it was revealed to me. It is exactly what I am supposed to do.
I love beautiful spaces, interesting stories, history, and architecture. I approach interior design more in how spaces feel, rather than what one can define in a formula. A great interior to me is about weaving a story into the fabric of the design. We may not realize it, but for most of us the life experiences we have, coupled with our personality, give someone like me a distinct vision of a beautifully finished interior.
I am a bit of an irreverent soul. I live to juxtapose raw with refined, as well as sophistication with spontaneity. I like to use color and pattern to set a mood in a space which tells visitors something subtle about my clients. At our core, we believe our job is creating memorable backdrops that tell the story of fascinating and intricate lives.
I work and reside on the east side of Portland near Mount Tabor in a 1916 foursquare with great bones, a story, and a heart. I am lovingly restoring her to glory. In my free time, I love to entertain, enjoy music, laugh, and travel to places with soul and profound histories.
Jeff is likely the first person you will meet at our studio when you call and introduce yourself. He is the man behind the scenes who assists with all of our projects. I consider him the essential left brain of the operation, working with scheduling, orders, manufacturing, deliveries and warehousing. Jeff is an artist himself, an accomplished musician, guitarist, and song writer.
Team members include draftsman, lighting and landscape designers, architects and engineers, as well as contractors and specialty trades like electricians, finish carpenters, fabricators, furniture makers, wallpaper installers, and fabric workrooms. We take pride in working with the best resources available for our clients.
Sugar & Finnegan bring so much joy everywhere the go. They are young and playful, and it isn’t uncommon to hear them wrestling in the background while I work. Sugar is an English Cream who is kind-hearted, playful and smart. She is the more reserved of the two “like all the British”, as my Dad likes to say. Her primary job is to watch for visitors and train Finnegan.
Finnegan is my little redheaded boy. He is the life of the party. He is very talkative, determined and affectionate. He also loves to put things in his mouth, and the studio floor is often littered with several balls, bones and plush toys he drags out of his toy box each morning. As the youngest of the two, his primary job is to wear out himself and Sugar.
For those of you that knew sweet Kashmir, the original studio pup, he passed away three days before his 15th birthday last June surrounded with love.
