Spectrum Interior Design moves down the road to MV

Spectrum Interior Design, founded in Los Altos by resident Amy Fischer nearly six years ago, is in the process of relocating to a larger site in Mountain View and will most likely celebrate its sixth anniversary in its new digs April 1.

The company expanded twice at its old First Street address, eventually occupying three suites on two floors, but it still wasn’t as much space as it needed, prompting the move, according to Fischer.

“At our new place, we will be all at a single level, which is more cohesive and has larger square footage,” she said. “Fortunately, the new location is less than 10 minutes away. It’s easy and convenient for our clients to come to us.”

Many of Spectrum’s clients live in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills, so Fischer searched for a site near her original location. The new office is so close to Los Altos that Spectrum’s landline phone number will remain the same.

Fischer founded Spectrum after working for the Los Altos-based Owen Signature Homes for nearly 15 years.

“The clients were asking me to do furnishings, drapery and accessories,” she said. “The services continued to grow beyond what I was doing for Owen Signature Homes, with construction. That’s why I started Spectrum Interior Design. The word ‘spectrum’ means we cover a whole spectrum of services.”

Spectrum works mostly with new constructions but also does remodeling. Fischer said most of her clients tend to remodel their homes six to 10 years after purchase.

As for interior design trends, “white on white” is in, Fischer noted.

“Calcutta white marble is in high demand right now,” she said. “There are a few stone vendors in our area that are focusing specifically on that white marble.”

Fischer said she tells clients that the color white is challenging to maintain and that home marble stains easily in kitchens, so Spectrum may integrate a contrasting granite into the design of the kitchen if the client has practicality in mind.

As she prepares to open in Mountain View, Fischer expressed gratitude to her customers.

“I’m so honored to be able to serve the Los Altos community and continue to by remaining close and expanding our offerings for our clients,” she said. “We’ll have additional space and an expanded library. We’ll be able to offer even more than before.”
