Paul Miller believes that recognizing and solving design problems starts with good listening.  His role as interior designer is to make the process fun and exciting for his clients while addressing their needs and challenges in a fresh and creative way.  Paul is an expert at intelligent spatial plans and visual compositions. He uses pattern, texture, and color to make designs joyful and relaxing.

After completing the design program at Lord Fairfax Community College in 2000, Paul mentored with experienced design professionals for four years before opening MakeNest Interiors in 2004.  Since then, his business has grown mostly through word of mouth, a testament to his commitment to offering creative ideas, quality products, and warm and friendly service. In 2017, Home & Design magazine named Paul an up and coming designer for the DC metro area.

Our Design Process

Both residential and commercial projects begin with discovery, followed by development, presentation, editing, and implementation. We gather detailed information on the project site and prepare a scope of work document for our client's review. In the development phase is where the design challenges are met with solutions. At presentation we provide tactile and visual aids as we discuss our proposed ideas, and after any edits, we manage the project through it's implementation stage.
