Welcome to Smith Earnest Interiors, Inc. where we pride ourselves on hands-on, personalized interior decorating services custom tailored to the Client's individual tastes and budgets. 


Smith Earnest Interiors' principal, Jeffry L. Smith, studied design at the University of California, Los Angeles. After working several years for leading firms in California and Florida, Jeffry, with partner, Olen J. Earnest, formed Smith Earnest Interiors, Inc. in November, 1993. Since that time the firm has received prestigious commissions in yachting and high end residential design in Orlando, Winter Park, Isleworth Country Club, Lake Nona Country Club, Heathrow, Windermere, Maitland, Longwood, Alaqua Lakes, Tampa, Merritt Island, Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Jupiter, Tucson AZ, Highlands NC, Asheville NC, Lexington KY, Cincinnati OH, Seattle WA, and McLean and Alexandria, VA.

Smith Earnest Interiors expertise is nowhere better illustrated than in the principal's working knowledge of construction, construction documents, custom architectural detailing, and specification of fixtures and materials. Smith Earnest Interiors provides each Client a personalized concept where the decor and architectural detailing are natural extensions of the exterior architecture. We never want our projects to bear a "cookie cutter" Smith Earnest look - we prefer to reflect the Client's personality and life style gently blending in Smith Earnest Interiors' decorating knowledge, skill, and classic decorating style. Finally we pride ourselves for respecting each Client's budget, delivering on time and within the budget.
