At Sechrist Design Associates, our business is our passion.

From initial concept to final installation, we bring exceptional design skills to every project, large or small. We also bring enthusiasm, commitment, and a strong work ethic. The result? Great design and satisfied clients.

Melinda and Michael Sechrist founded SDA in 1980 as a multi–disciplinary firm specializing in interior design and landscape architecture. For over 25 years, we've been providing creative, award–winning design solutions that merge our clients' needs and aesthetic preferences. Whatever the project, we bring together a team of professionals to achieve our clients' specific goals. SDA offers a full range of design services for projects that include hospitality, senior living, condominiums and apartment communities, single-family homes, model units, and office spaces. We also provide expert landscape architecture for both residential and commercial settings.

At SDA, we are not just designers – we are also problem solvers. We listen carefully to our clients' needs and offer fresh and innovative solutions. We work closely with our clients to address their specific requirements regarding budget, time frame, purchasing, and installation. That's why our clients hire us over and over again: because whatever the challenge, SDA meets and exceeds their expectations.

We love what we do and we bring excitement to our work.

Let us put our passion to work for you.
