Last month we were honored with four ASID awards for three of our recent homes. The ASID Excellence in Design Awards highlights projects about the Carolinas Chapter of ASID that successfully address client objectives, demonstrate creativity, and skillfully solve problems in interior design.
Today we’re taking you along on our recent Kiawah Island home Sip & See tour. When we finish a design project, we host a small gathering at the client’s home. We bring in wine and cheese and invite the rest of the MDI team so they can see the results of their colleague’s innovation and hard work. This gives everyone a chance to celebrate the completion of the project and allows us to relax with the clients, who by now are friends.
Recently MDI won the 2nd place ASID Award for a project we can’t wait for you to see it.
