An Inside Look At Sage Interiors

When you set out to work with an interior designer, a number of questions arise: Does the body of her work speak to you? Can you imagine working in the spaces she has created? Will you be comfortable sharing your vision, hopes, and dreams with her? Do you believe she can translate your ideas into beautiful, functional, workable spaces that fully express your business mission?

Just look at the images on this website. The spirited, joyful mix of color, line, form, and texture shows how Marilee Wintz and her Sage Interiors team can transform your interior spaces into living and working environments that will inspire. Each photo and detail demonstrates the founding philosophy of Sage Interiors: "Beauty Inspires."

Since 1997, Sage Interiors has helped business and residential clients in the Reno–Tahoe area, and across the country, impart a feeling of harmony, joy, satisfaction, and success to workplaces and homes.

For her business clients, Marilee’s design process begins by learning her client's mission statement, brand identity, and dreams, in order to integrate that vision into custom designs. She creates inspiration with beautiful and meaningful designs that support your business model by emphasizing branding in finish and furniture design choices. Working shoulder to shoulder with many national clients, she creates truly unique regional designs. Good Design = Good Business.

Marilee will discover your personal color, quality, style, and comfort needs, and then exceed your expectations with a dramatic interplay of mixed materials, from paint to tile, wood, metal, fabrics, and carefully selected furnishings. A distinctive quality that sets Sage Interiors apart is a kinship with local artists and craftsman who create forged iron, custom murals, mosaics, locally relevant paintings and photography, pottery, and other works of art. Marilee strives to create designs that bring an element of surprise and leave a lasting impression.

Sage Interiors specializes in delivering a finished design and a completed project within budget. Thanks to the depth of her furniture, lighting, and accessory resources—including the San Francisco Design Center—Marilee provides her clients with a full "turn-key" design that is tailored to client resources.

Marilee is a graduate of Fort Lewis College in Colorado, and studied interior design at the University of Nevada, Reno. She is NCIDQ certified and a Nevada Registered Interior Designer.  In 2002, Marilee received the prestigious BRAVO award from the American Institute of Architects for promoting harmonious relationships with architects and residential designers.  Outside of the office, Marilee hikes with her dogs in the Sierra Nevada mountains and the high desert of northern Nevada — where nature and color inspires her daily. She also enjoys skiing, cycling, yoga, cooking, creative photography, plein air oil painting, and giving back to the community. She is currently creating an inviting and healing environment for Safe Embrace and their safe house for local women and children. With nature as a main focus in her life, Marilee also supports Tahoe Donner Land Trust as well as promoting safety on trails in Reno's pristine open space. Marilee’s personal “Beauty Inspires” website showcases her love of nature, flowers and color.
