Perhaps the Solís Betancourt & Sherrill style is hard to define because it is linked less to a prescribed look than to an emotional experience. These are interiors that offer a moment of transcendence, a glimpse beyond everyday routine. These are rooms to come home to, sanctuaries that offer a sense of elegance, tranquility, and beauty.

Since its founding in 1990, Solís Betancourt & Sherrill has gained international recognition as a leading residential design firm. The firm’s projects have been featured in Architectural Digest, Traditional Home, House Beautiful, The New York Times Magazine, and The Washington Post. Solís Betancourt & Sherrill’s monograph Essential Elegance was published in 2010 by Monacelli Press.
