Our Philosophy

The team at Cashmere Interior is a fresh mix of talented designers who are savvy to yesterday’s beauty, today’s styles and tomorrow’s innovations. Cashmere Interior has a simple philosophy: give our clients a home they will love for years to come. Using our extensive design background and high level of customer service, making every aspect of the client experience enjoyable.

We are a residential interior design firm focusing on high-end furnishings, fabrics, accessories and art. Our look is classic; we are never too trendy, never too dated. We will give you the look of fresh sophistication combined with the warmth and functionality of a comfortable home. While we customize every home to fit the needs of the individual and the family, we specialize in an eclectic mix of collected antiques with contemporary furnishings and clean lines. The design of your home will feel collected and personal rather than purchased from a showroom floor.

Is the principal designer and owner of Cashmere Interior

Charlene offers a unique background and perspective into the world of interior design. Her childhood was spent in the rural farmland of Chester County, PA with a close knit, hard working family.

Her life and career experiences have allowed her the opportunity to travel the world and see first hand what other cultures bring to the design arena. These travels and innate sensibilities give her an eye for wonderful one of kind pieces housed within the firm’s inventory.

Her personality is easy going, down to earth and she has an uncanny ability to determine what a client wants. Charlene’s core design inspiration draws from her metaphorical feeling of cashmere – hence, Cashmere Interior.
