Our Process

Although each client engagement is unique, PERISTYLE follows a systematic, multi-step approach that begins and ends with the client’s buy-in from evaluation through contract administration to completion and approval.  We carefully study each project’s location, composition, area, and assets to define the best possible use of space and the most appropriate interior design plan to match our client’s style and functional requirements.

  • Intake
  • Planning and Assessment
  • Asset Selection
  • Delivery and Installation
  • Completion

Intake: We begin the process by meeting with our clients to define their needs, space constraints, and budget limits.  We complete a detailed needs analysis to understand the intended usage of the space, the number of people who will use the space, desired circulation patterns, and elements required to provide a solution that is both cohesive and comprehensive.  We get to know our clients intimately, so that we can understand their aspirations, preferences, and ideals, and eventually, express these concepts through our design.

Planning and Assessment:  The second step in our process involves developing a detailed understanding of the client’s space.  We visit the location, take detailed measurements, map out the arc of the natural light, and identify focal points, among other assessment procedures.  We then perform a series of reality checks to determine if the client’s budget is in alignment with the expected deliverables.   After we have worked with the client to chart a realistic course of action, we create scale plans, schematics, and computer-aided designs.  After collaboration with the client and other service providers, we complete the final design.

Asset Selection:  Asset selection requires keen attention to detail; this includes the client’s preferences as well as budget and space constraints.   This phase of the process includes selecting and coordinating furniture, equipment, flooring, paint and wall coverings, and accessories.  We also work with the client to ensure that lighting needs and power requirements are met.  We estimate circulation patterns to ensure that end-user needs for privacy, engagement, and teamwork are accommodated.

Delivery and Installation:  We take the anxiety out of delivery and installation.  Perry P. Savoy, the Founder and President of the Peristyle, personally oversees every element of the installation of furniture, equipment, and installation.  He carefully inspects all deliveries both before and after installation to minimize dents, scratches, and breaks.  When damage is detected, our process ensures that replacements are provided in a timely manner.

Completion:  Our projects end with approval and sign-off.  We close our engagements with a performance evaluation, and we work with our clients’ office managers, property managers, and other personnel to make sure that they understand how to care for furniture, draperies, and carpets, how to get service for equipment, and how to re-order.

“Planning my office space was like talking to an old friend. Perry just seemed to know what my staff and I needed. It shows in how the staff now interact with each other and with our clients. Our space looks and feels like a venerable establishment, not just like a collection of offices, boardrooms, a kitchen, and reception areas.” — Sharon

About Peristyle

“Collaboration, attention to details, and an unwavering focus on functional requirements combine to form the foundation of smart interior design.” – Perry P. Savoy, Founder and President Peristyle, LLC

Since its launch in 1995, PERISTYLE has created interiors that precisely balance visual appeal and functional purpose. Our ability to interpret our clients’ vision, while staying within budget and scheduling requirements, has earned accolades throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.  

We believe that successful design projects depend on three elements:  collaboration, attention to details, and an unwavering focus on functional requirements.  We harness this information to create the spaces where our clients want to be in order to get their work done. As examples:

  • when we build out office space, we focus on elements that will drive productivity
  • when we work on community centers, we concentrate on improving opportunities for engagement among community members
  • when we create lounge areas, we strive to provide comfort, privacy, and opportunities to unwind and recharge

We treat collaboration and client input as the scaffolding that supports our expertise in design. PERISTYLE begins and ends every engagement with the client, and we welcome client involvement throughout the duration of each engagement. Whether the project is large or small, for recreation purposes or business functions, PERISTYLE executes design services with an intimate understanding of individuals, teams, organizations, and their needs. This process creates interiors that reflect the style and character of each client. The end result is a space that is aesthetically pleasing and conducive to the client’s functional mandate.

Our Founder

Perry P. Savoy – Perry founded PERISTYLE in 1995, following a career as an interior designer and space planner at the Veteran’s Administration and small design firms. He built PERISTYLE from the ground up by focusing first and foremost on the customers’ needs. Clients rely on Perry’s personable approach, classic design training, extensive style library, and partnering relationships to turn ideas into visualizations and then into reality.

Perry’s ability to select the right elements – be it paint colors, flooring, furniture, or textiles – and his precision in optimizing project constraints – like budgets, physical space, and timeframes –  are central components of the value that Peristyle provides to clients.    

PERISTYLE has emerged as a Baltimore institution because Perry delivers the end results that clients want.
