Interior Concepts, Inc., founded in 1979 by principal Arlene Critzos, boasts over 40 years of expertise in creating beautiful interiors. Built on Critzos’ personal experience—encompassing European studies, travel and multiple decorative arts degrees—and her team’s expertise, the firm has created a diverse portfolio of work.

“While our approach emphasizes creativity and professionalism,” Critzos says, “we work collaboratively with clients to design homes that are unique havens for their owners.”

Colleague Joyce Pearl, who joined the firm in 1983, is well-versed in residential and commercial design. She eschews a signature style, instead marrying her clients’ diverse lifestyles and the project location in her interiors. “Making a difference” is her commitment.

ICI is known for impeccable taste and expansive design capabilities in homes that emphasize comfort, scale, art and overall visual beauty. The firm’s approach is to first understand clients’ needs, quality expectations, budget and timing, then work from concept to completion to strike a harmonious balance that transforms spaces into personalized works of art.

Recent projects range from family homes and estates to beachfront retreats, mountain getaways and city flats. The firm has worked throughout the U.S. and in England, Spain, the Middle East, Malaysia and China, earning recognition in national and local magazines.

ICI is a full-service, 60-person design firm. Accolades include design excellence awards from Annapolis Home, which named the firm its Face of Interior Design for the seventh consecutive year in 2023.

Looking forward, Interior Concepts is dedicated to staying at the forefront of design innovation, envisioning a future marked by new challenges, exciting projects and ongoing contributions to the world of interior design.
