Your Vision, Realized

Located in Hendersonville, NC, Cheryl Smith Associates has been creating breathtaking spaces throughout the Southeast for over 20 years. The business started with an emphasis on hotel and restaurant interior design but gradually evolved to take on residential designs as well.

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.

Let us make your dreams a reality. Call Cheryl Smith Associates today to get started.
