About Sarah and how she works

My favorite part of any project is getting to know my clients and being a part of their inspiring ideas. My goal is to create meaningful interiors that reflect my clients’ vision and promotes their growth through design. 

Meet Sarah Moneybrake

Owner + Interior Designer

Sarah is a trusted member of your team. She knows how precious the tangible space is to your business and your clients. The hotel downtown, the cafe on the corner, a specialty shop of handmade art; each space tells a story and serves a purpose unique to your customer and community. It conveys your brand, your values, and invites your customer to engage with you.

Sarah started SMID realizing the need for quality design partners in the hospitality + commercial field. With her degree in design, her NCIDQ Certification and over 10 years of experience creating spaces, she’s developed an authentic approach that is utilized by architects, builders, consultants, developers and owners. The core of her method is understanding how the human mind responds to design.

In order to create a space that achieves so much, you need a trusted design partner who understands hospitality + commercial spaces, project management and the building industry. Sounds impossible? Sarah’s expertise removes the frustration from your dream, your project. Together you’ll craft a space that will be safe, welcoming, engaging and will win over your customers for life. She makes it easy and enjoyable.

"We couldn’t be happier with the design results Sarah did for our large scale remodel project at beechwood grill. After giving Sarah a few ideas of what we were looking for she presented a design and concept right on point for what we envisioned. Sarah also kept the contractors on a difficult time schedule and saw the project through from start to finish. We couldn’t be happier with the results and more importantly, all of our guests have been equally impressed."

"It’s been my pleasure to work with Sarah Moneybrake over the past two years – as we transformed our very dated church foyer, prayer room, coffee center, and offices into beautiful and functional spaces. Sarah is a great listener. She picks up cues in conversations, presents good options to consider, offers expert advice on design, and is conscientious about the budget. Her attention to details serves her well in working with the trades as well as her clients. She is a great resource in providing design and furnishings that work well in public spaces. She has a great sense of what “works” but leaves room for input and remains open and flexible. She is incredibly gracious, professional in all of her interactions, unflappable in stressful situations and stands behind her products. She is a joy to work with and the results have been amazing!"
