Elizabeth Bhar

Elizabeth Bhar believes that great design has the ability to ignite ideas, open people to greater collaborative experiences, and create a sense of community.  These ideas are the driving force behind her designs, and are the principles on which she founded Art of Interiors in 2007.

Since then, the firm has expanded its scope with numerous multi-year, multi-faceted commercial design projects. Many of which are found in North Carolina’s Research Triangle, Atlanta, and New York City.

To Elizabeth, her work is about creating spaces that emphasize the human-side of design. Every project is an opportunity to take a company’s values…their brand… and turn it into a welcoming environment that can be experienced emotionally, and through the senses.

A graduate of Meredith College with a degree in Interior Architecture, Elizabeth leads her team out of her studio in Raleigh, North Carolina. She is a registered interior designer in the state of North Carolina, is NCIDQ licensed, and fully bilingual. She’s also an active member of several  national and international interior design organizations.

When Elizabeth is not dedicating her time to the art of creating spaces that inspire others and help people thrive, she can be found at home drinking great coffee…a nod to her Colombian heritage…with her husband, two sons, and three dogs.  As a former flight attendant, Elizabeth developed a lifelong passion for travel. And today, by immersing herself in different cultures and in beauty, Elizabeth enriches not only her designs, but also her life.

Safa Salahaldeen

A graduate of Meredith College, with a major in Interior Design and a minor in Studio Art, Safa was born and raised in Raleigh, NC. Interior Design is more than a profession, it’s also a passion, allowing Safa to combine her talent for curating artful spaces with her desire to positively impact her clients’ quality of life through their built environment.

Outside of work, Safa’s life includes dance, travel, doing her own mixed media art, and photography, which she has studied and loves. The daughter of parents who immigrated from Khartoum, Sudan, Safa frequently travels back to Sudan where she loves immersing herself in family, food, culture, art, and music, as well as the landscape of such a beautiful country.

She is a member of IIDA (International Interior Design Association) and ASID (American Association of Interior Designers.)

What Sets Us Apart

We’re a 1-Stop Shop

We do the design, the space planning, and make sure we’re compliant with all the codes. We also provide all furniture procurement and installation.  

Our Clients Appreciate This Because…

We carry the project from start to finish, and once our clients have told us what they need, they also know they’ll never have to think about it again. 

We do residential and commercial projects

By applying what we’ve mastered in logistics, scale, and the complexity of our commercial projects, we’ve become stronger residential designers…and vice versa. 

Our Clients Appreciate This Because…

Our knowledge base is deep, and has given us a clear understanding of what is possible. This saves our clients time by knowing what can be accomplished realistically, based on our awareness of architectectural, structural, and building standards.

We start with our clients’ values

From there we turn them into branded environments and inviting homes that are experienced emotionally and through the senses.

Our Clients Appreciate This Because…

They see their story– intentionally told– throughout their surroundings.

We’re based in North Carolina where the heritage of craft is revered

We often work with local craftspeople to design one-of-a-kind pieces. Additionally, we procure unique furnishings from Europe where we have sourcing partners in Italy, France, Denmark, and Spain.
