This downtown condo, right in the heart of Sarasota’s main street, was designed for a hip, mid-western couple who were downsizing from their much larger home to be closer to the action of the city. We set out to maximize storage and multi-purpose functionality in the compact footprint, while layering the space with a myriad of warm finishes and playful touches to add a fresh-yet-cozy feeling to their new home.

Jonathan C. – entire Home Remodel

My wife and I took the plunge on the total renovation of a 60-year-old house in South Tampa in 2019 – luckily, we had Sarah to guide our every step. Sarah came highly recommended, and we now understand why. She took a house stripped down to the studs with an out-of-date layout and completely reworked the space, redesigning the kitchen, main floor spaces, lighting and electrical, bathrooms, bedrooms, and everything in between. She worked to draw out and incorporate our vision in every finish detail and FFE selection – from cabinet hardware to lighting color temperature. She even helped out on landscaping. She made a drab, old house into a modern, warm, incredible space for our family. I cannot recommend her enough.


I have worked with Sarah on a luxury home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The home had a mid-century vibe with a more current feel. I have to say that Sarah's ‘designer’s eye’ and professionalism made the interior truly beautiful and unique. The interior was masterfully executed with every detail, material, and color quietly working together to make wonderful spaces. She was a delight to work with and listened well. I highly recommend Sarah Brittain Design.


Sarah, was extremely easy to work with and provided great design concepts for my urban loft project. We converted an old warehouse into a 44-unit loft building. Sarah provided the lighting, color scheme, and flooring material design for the project. She worked within the given budget, which is always a plus for a developer. The finished project is fantastic!

C.B. Hughes Design – Multiple Projects

I worked with Sarah at her interior design firm, Sarah Gwaltney Interior Design, for two years, as a designer. We worked together on many residential projects, that ranged in size from decorating childrens’ nurseries to renovating entire condos. Sarah is an extremely professional designer with strong communication skills that clients and vendors both appreciate immensely. During our collaboration, she approached each job with confidence, conceptualizing new ideas, problem solving each project, selecting all of the furnishings, finishes and fixtures and overseeing all of the work.

Her talent, expertise and knowledge proved to be great assets to each project. Sarah's attention to detail is one of her greatest qualities. She worked hard to meet each one of our clients' needs and always made sure to go above and beyond, to ensure our clients' happiness. She is motivated, timely and efficient, which allowed each job to run as smoothly as possible. I had an extremely positive experience while working with Sarah and would recommend her for any interior design job.
