Welcome to Cheryl Smith Associates.

Located in Hendersonville, NC, Cheryl Smith Associates has been creating breathtaking spaces throughout the Southeast for over 30 years. The business started with an emphasis on hotel and restaurant interior design and diversified to include quality residential design.

At Cheryl Smith Associates, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive design services and our ability to work closely with our clients and their partners – architects, builders, landscape designers – to create the space of their dreams.

We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach to design. Our innovative and timeless interiors are as unique as our clients; whether it’s rustic mountain decor or a sleek and modern look, we will design a space that fits your needs and reflects your personality.

We could go on and on…

but we prefer to let our work speak for itself. Our Portfolio provides an opportunity to see and feel the warmth and beauty of a Cheryl Smith Associates interior.

CSA Builders Advantage

Cheryl Smith Associates has a deep and comprehensive understanding of the building and home design process. This knowledge enables us to develop relationships with building professionals; our ability to speak their language streamlines the building process. We offer a number of services including comprehensive space planning, kitchen and bath design, electrical planning, CAD drawings and project management that help the builder make the most intuitive and effective choices. We start the process early in the development phase, before the house is built, so as to best showcase the builder’s talent and realize the homeowner’s dream.

 The CSA Builders Advantage saves time and reduces errors by providing details along the way.

It’s at the right time and in the right format to the right audiences, eliminating confusion and costly mistakes. Our ability to communicate clearly with builders, and partner with them throughout the process, results in exceptional outcomes for the builder as well as the homeowner.

“Cheryl can’t retire…ever. I could never build another house or redecorate an existing one without her.”
