Tammy Randall Wood, ASID is the founder and principal of Interior Archaeology. She studied Television and Film at California State University at Northridge and went on to study Interior Design at Parsons The New School For Design in New York, eventually earning her NCIDQ Certificate and Professional Membership in the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
In 1994, Tammy founded Interior Archaeology; a comprehensive interior design firm specializing in creating exquisite spaces with the same attention to detail that captivated her on the Hollywood sets she grew up on.
She has designed an extensive array of projects coast to coast - from seaside cottages on Martha's Vineyard, metropolitan penthouses and formal Beltway manors to cultivated west coast compounds. Her firm brings a fresh approach to tailored interiors. A love of elegant simplicity with a focus on authentic materials forges her design approach.
"I am inspired by simple elegance that serves real everyday living."
A deep appreciation of periods and regional styles combine with a fresh lens to create the appropriate and livable spaces we are known for.
Whether leaning modern or traditional, “the story” Tammy believes is in the intelligent interplay between strong silhouettes, texture and color. “How all these elements effortlessly relate to one another ultimately create the serenity I aim for in my designs.” Tammy is known for mixing modern with vintage; high art with personal pieces to create compositions of unexpected beauty.
To make magnificent spaces happen you not only need a vision, you need the goods. Like a real Indiana Jones adventure (her father was the second unit director of the iconic film series and this helped inspire the name of her company) she has spent much of the last 20 years discovering those secret and special sources that help Interior Archaeology create the curated interiors its known for. In these quests, Interior Archaeology is proud to have forged relationships with an impressive array of furniture manufacturers, fabric houses, tradespeople, custom workrooms and auction houses they call on to bring the Noble Spaces, as Tammy likes to call them, into being. No matter the scale or location, Tammy believes that all projects have a unique and authentic story waiting to be told.
"Respect for architecture and scale, organized elegant practicality, ancient themes set against modern sensibilities. These are qualities of design that have forged my approach; qualities which I rely on to Create Noble Spaces for our clients in telling their own stories."
