Interior Of A Concierge Doctor's Office

Today I would like to share an interior design project I did for a concierge doctor's office. This is one of my most favorite projects I did and working with the client was such a joy! Many of you might not know what a concierge doctor's office is..... It is a personalized care practice where you pay the doctor a member fee which enables you to call on the doctor whenever you have a health concern. Patients can schedule an appointment the same day and won't have the long wait when they arrive for their appointment. Patients can take as much time as they need to ask questions and will receive complete answers from a skilled and compassionate physician who knows them well. Traditionally the family physician built a relationship with all patients based on time and trust and personalized care brings that kind of doctor/patient relationship to the forefront again.

My client wanted the waiting area to be elegant with an aura of romance and glamour in the Mediterranean style.

The reception area with a waterfall I designed in the background.

While sitting on the sofa and waiting to see the doctor the patient looks at this beautiful trompe l'oeil mural of an Italian garden scene that leads his or her eye to the distant horizon.

All architecture work was done by my husband Arno.

  1. and your husband make quite the team...this is so the colors and everything is just so pretty! I would like to go there and I don't like going to doctors! Come say hi :D

  2. Thank you so much Julie, I appreciate your kind words. Usually doctor's and dental offices are very clinical and cold and my goal with this office was to make it feel warm and inviting even though I used cool and calm colors. Ixx

  3. This is awesome...Ingrid, really beautiful!
    ...and now I also know what a concierge dr is...never heard of it before. In France we have such excellent health care. Our general practitioners still do house calls!

  4. Thank you Ronell! You are so blessed to have excellent health care in France. Our general practitioner here in Naples is a South African and concierge and he went on the barter system with us which works great and is such a blessing to us.
