Betty Manry, ASID, is President of Design Interiors International Inc, a Florida-based interior design firm offering commercial and residential services.
She is a Registered Interior Designer with the State of Florida, a professional member of ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) and is NCIDQ Certified (National Council of Interior Design Qualification). Her work has been published in Florida Architecture, ID Magazine (Singapore), Vero Beach Life, Palm Beach Life and Vero Beach Magazine.
She has been practicing interior design since 1980 and has completed residential and commercial projects for clients in Florida, Michigan, Massachusetts, Ohio, Washington, California and Europe, employing a range of styles and with budgets best suited to each client’s requirements. While she enjoys helping a range of clients, her favorite projects include hospitality design, historic preservation and restoration, and sustainable design. She also enjoys designing one-of-a-kind pieces for clients who desire something unique whether it is a piece of furniture, a custom rug or a chandelier.
She believes that the most important skill of an interior designer is the ability to understand the client’s needs and goals and then lending her expertise to guide them there successfully. Therefore she is personally involved in each project she undertakes from start to finish, and she makes herself available to all disciplines involved in the project to ensure open communications and ultimately a successful and satisfying end to the project.
Betty continues to keep abreast of new developments in the industry with continuing education in lighting design, sustainable design and modern kitchen design and has just recently completed a sustainable yet luxurious residential project, in Vero Beach, that was awarded the LEED Gold certification.
