Winner of the prestigious Greater Houston Builders Association 'Houston's Best' design award for Best Family Room, Best Dining Room and Best Bedroom for 2010 and Best Bathroom Remodel under $50,000 in 2009, Cindy has amassed an impressive body of work with her portfolio ranging from new construction to remodel projects that encompasses work in all facets of residential and commercial interior design.
Cindy Aplanalp's rare combination of university degrees in interior design and business management give her a powerful competitive advantage in the design industry. Her lifelong passion for exotic travel continues to influence her work and subtly elegant traces of her travels in Europe, Asia, India and Central America are exhibited in her designs.
While influenced by such designers as Suzanne Kasler, Jan Showers and Larry Laslo, Cindy synthesizes her own fusion of an elaborate collection of styles and expertise to create beautiful, balanced and exceptionally functional environments for her clients. Her signature style is a crisp and elegant mix of sophisticated eclectic, with touches of the traditional and a savvy use of materials, textures and technology. Designing from the premise of intention, Cindy places great significance on the inspiration and guidance gained from the idea that each element must offer a personal connection for the user.
