Tamara Johnson, Interior Designer and Realtor®

Tamara Johnson is truly a rare breed. She listens. Really listens. Her openness, warmth and easy-going attitude can no doubt be attributed to her South Dakota roots. The girl from the Heartland was transplanted to Arizona in 1992 and began her foray into interior design, an astute career move that perfectly suited her innate talents and resulted in several awards, including a 2014 Design Excellence Award from the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
Tamara’s passion for design, flexibility and mediation skills have made her a favorite among upscale clientele who want a voice in the design process but need a professional to guide them through the process. Tamara readily admits she loves the variety in what she does, which fits right in with her customers’ wishes to have an environment that is very personable and very unique. “No two projects are ever the same,” she says. “I love helping people decorate their home so it feels like them, and in the end is a product loved by all parties involved.”
Tamara is happy to incorporate her customers’ key pieces of furniture or artwork into a new, vibrate space. “Not everyone’s house needs to look like a magazine picture,” she believes. “People want their house to reflect their travels, their lives.”
Seeking a bigger challenge and capitalizing on her negotiating skills, Tamara has now expanded her horizons into the realm of real estate. Considering she knows homes inside and out, the move is a natural one that allows her to provide a complete package to homeowners. In addition to traditional real estate representation, Tamara can offer imaginative services that can make all the difference in the world of real estate, including staging a home to accentuate its best features or renovating/redecorating a new home.

Tamara Johnson is fantastic to work with. We started out looking just for window blinds for a few of our windows, but after meeting with her and discussing various options, we ended up having Tamara provide both blinds and drapes for our whole house. In addition, she helped us select furniture and accessories to pull the place together. We also appreciated the fact that Tamara kept us informed on delivery times and had quick turnaround. It quickly became obvious to us that Tamara Johnson is a good business person, as well as a great designer!

We have worked with BMI/Together Interiors on several projects in our home. The first was the remodel of our kitchen and Tamara's experience helped us find the right furniture, window coverings, and accessories. More recently, we replaced all of the windows and doors in the house; Tamara's attention to detail on all of the window treatments has made our house not only beautiful, but warm and inviting. It was a pleasure to work with someone who cared about the end product as much as we did. Her knowledge of color and fabric saved us so much time and made the experience enjoyable. We recommend her without reservation and will continue to use her expertise and eye to detail for years to come.

My wife and I were Tamara's first clients when she started BMI/Together Interiors. She did an exquisite job on both our Flagstaff vacation home as well as our primary residence in Scottsdale. The different styles for two very different kinds of homes was a challenge that she met with imagination and flair - we couldn't be happier. We have had occasion to use her several times over the years and she's always come up with ideas that have fit what we were looking for, but couldn't create on our own. We would highly recommend Tamara and will continue to pass along her name to anyone looking for a top notch interior designer.

Client #1

We had custom drapes made by another company and they were not done correctly - we were extremely disappointed. Someone told us Tamara might be able to help - and she did. She turned a bad situation into magic. She selected some great fabrics for new drapes, and we are totally happy with the way they turned out. She also helped rearrange furniture, art and accessories to give our house a great makeover without buying more than a few new items, and teamed up with our lighting designer to get the ambient lighting we needed in our home. We are planning on completing some additional projects with Tamara and her team - we really enjoy working with them. We would highly recommend them to anyone.

Dear Tamara, I can't thank you enough for your wonderful design work and advice as we worked on our many interior design projects in my home. You helped me bring out both my own design sense and my home's great potential. BMI/Together Interiors made choosing fabrics, furniture and even paint colors and accessories easy and fun. You have a terrific eye for the newest in color and design, but best of all you listened to me and my husband and delivered in spades! I constantly get compliments on our home's new 'transformation'. I can't wait until our next projects together!

Sophistication At It's Best Tamara and her staff at BMI/Together Interiors not only know what they're doing, but all are a delight to work with. The owner is brilliant and knows how to get the most out of every dollar you spend. Our draperies are gorgeous...the colors and fabrics really pop! I look forward to working with Tamara on many more projects. What a great internet find!

Tamara did a fantastic job and was a pleasure to work with all over my home, I can’t wait to have her back to help with a future kitchen remodel.

She’s done draperies, bedspreads, furniture, and rugs. They did great. Everything they have done for me has been wonderful. She is great and I would highly recommend her.

We moved into the state from Wisconsin and needed help blending our style, art, and furniture with a completely different styled house in Arizona. We needed new lighting, furniture in the great room and kitchen, tile work in the kitchen and on the fireplace, floor coverings (rugs and carpet), window coverings in all bedrooms, and art placement throughout the house. Tamera understood our needs, values, and desires. She made it our house, rather then just her ideas for us to live in. One of her strongest points is that she truly listened to us and added great ideas to that. The workmen she used or recommended were all very good and honest.
