Coastal Redesign by Award-Winning Interior Designer, Tamara Archer!

Award-winning interior designer, Tamara Archer recently launched T. Archer Design, LLC., located in Clearwater, FL. The boutique design studio provides clients with a full range of interior design services,from single room design to extensive multi-tiered design projects.


The company’s niche is eclectic style rooted in holistic design. They specialize in incorporating natural elements, improving spatial flow, and using mood-enhancing qualities of color and therapeutic lighting. From the blending of classic with contemporary, old with new, and east with west, Tamara’s extensive knowledge of era-specific design is one of the company’s greatest assets. “My role as a designer is to help my clients tell their own story by articulating their taste and style through my designs”, says Tamara. “I believe style isn’t just about what you wear—your home should be a reflection of your individuality and self-expression.”



On a recent project, Tamara completed a full redesign of a Clearwater contemporary ranch home. Throughout the home she utilized coastal influences with the use of natural materials and textures that mimic the sea. Keeping the space light and airy, she used different shades of blues and greys, accompanied by exotic wood finishes and natural plants. Complementing the open floor plan design, the home was furnished in a contemporary eclectic style. The full project can be viewed at:
