Tracee Murphy

CEO & Principal Designer, NCIDQ (FL ID 5829)

An award winning Interior Designer offering creative vision & execution for interiors.

Tracee specializes in designing spaces that reflect ‘Your Style of  Living’, making sure that each project is unique and reflective of the homeowner or business occupying the space.  While not following a singular design aesthetic for every project, Tracee does have a passion for classic styling with a relaxed & sophisticated feeling.  Inviting interiors tell the best stories!  Her projects include luxury residential new construction, multi-family clubhouses, & executive corporate offices. 

Tracee has earned degrees in both Interior Design and Psychology, making her particularly adept at understanding her clients needs, managing multiple perspectives on a project, and creating interiors that have the most positive impact on mood & function. As a licensed Interior Designer in the state of Florida, she is regularly attending continuing education and staying abreast of the codes and requirements to maintain healthy and safe interiors. 

Tracee is passionate about traveling the world, walking the beach, enjoying the “salt life”, all while soaking in all the art & culture that Sarasota has to offer.  She is happy to attend any wine event you would like to invite her to!  Most of all, she enjoys spending time with her family and dogs, George Washington and Sophie Jo, who you’ll find in the TMI Design Studio on most days.

Kristin has a passion for bringing a design vision to life. Her style is modern, refined comfort with hints of natural elements.

Kristin holds a Masters degree in Interior Design from Southeast Missouri State University and is an Allied member of ASID.  Kristin was first introduced to the art of Interior Design as a little girl while watching and learning from the interior designer who was working on her childhood home. It was love at first sight!

A native of the Midwest, Kristin relocated to Florida in 2015 where she has gained extensive experience in high-end residential design, construction and model home merchandising. 

When she’s not at the TMI office, you can find her at the beach, spending time with her dog, Gus, or boxing!
