Interior Concepts, Inc.’s principal, Arlene Critzos, has been creating beautiful interiors for more than 40 years. Her personal experience—encompassing European studies, travel and multiple decorative arts degrees—and the expertise of her team result in a broad range of designs.

“Our approach emphasizes creativity and professionalism, and we never begin a project without totally understanding our clients’ needs, financial scope, quality expectations and timing,” Critzos says. “We work collaboratively on homes that are truly unique and a haven for their owners.”

Colleagues Catherine Belkov and Samantha Sopp-Wittwer bring design degrees and a passion for all facets of design to their work. The team’s latest projects span the style spectrum—from a relaxed island retreat and a modern mountain aerie to an urban contemporary abode and a refined French residence. The firm was also tapped to redesign the vice president’s Naval Observatory residence.

Critzos founded Interior Concepts, Inc., in 1979. Today, ICI employs about 50 people creating homes that emphasize comfort, scale, art and overall visual beauty. Recent accolades include three Builder & Fine Design awards from Annapolis Home. Critzos received a Home & Design Designers’ Choice Award and was named the 2019 Face of Interior Design by Annapolis Home.
