Gina Fitzsimmons, ASID

Designing waterfront homes is a specialty of Gina Fitzsimmons. Principal of Annapolis-based interior design firm Fitzsimmons Design Associates, Fitzsimmons has been creating beautiful spaces for clients on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay for more than 25 years—always ensuring that the views take center stage. “It’s important not to detract from the focal point of the waterfront as you frame the view with the interior furnishings,” she explains.

Fitzsimmons describes her style as “Chesapeake cozy.” It’s a natural, beautiful and tailored look that is comfortable, functional, unpretentious and easy-going. She and her team begin by gathering information about their clients’ functional needs, aesthetic preferences, budget and time frame, and helping them set priorities. They then customize a style to fit the clients’ vision. From presentation to final installation, they painstakingly study how each piece interacts with the design, making selections that will lead to the best possible results.

Gina Fitzsimmons is a professional member of ASID and is NCIDQ-qualified. She recently was awarded first place by ASID for residential design. Her work has appeared in Chesapeake Views, Annapolis Home, Home & Design and The Baltimore Sun.
