The CCID Team
Sally Williams, Owner and Principal Designer of Colorful Concepts Interior Design, has a design aesthetic that is timeless and free of stylistic premises working in contemporary and traditional spaces alike.
Sally is a CQRID-certified Interior Designer who has also earned an Accounting degree from the College of William and Mary. She worked in Corporate Accounting Management prior to following her life-long passion for Fine Art and Craft by opening a Gallery in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. During her seven years of Gallery ownership, Sally’s eyes were opened to the world of Interior Design. With the encouragement of Gallery clients, friends, and family, she pursued vigorous self-study of the field. In 2002, Sally closed the Gallery and Colorful Concepts was born.
The gallery and artists Sally worked with continue to inspire her design approach today. She begins her designs with the color palette, which sets the tone for the entire project. Sally transforms a space artistically, providing balanced composition and soulful color schemes set in crisp optimistic environments. She has a strong philosophy that environments impact peoples’ daily lives, and she works with the client to deeply understand what they want and need in their space.
As the daughter of a United States Foreign Service Officer, Sally spent much of her childhood overseas. A multi-cultural heritage of French-Canadian on her Father’s side, and Peruvian on her Mother’s, has also inspired Sally’s creativity, which is delivered beyond her client’s expectations.
Sally is a Past President of the Triangle Chapter of the Interior Design Society; a member of numerous Professional Associations including the Home Builders Association and the Remodeler’s Council; and is a volunteer with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Guild. Sally has lived in Raleigh for thirty years, where she and her husband, Richard, raised their two daughters - Angela and Nancy.

Caitlin Dorantich, Interior Designer, earned a B.S. in Interior Design from Meredith College with a minor in Business Administration. Detail-oriented, she excels at producing space plans, elevations and renderings as well as enjoying being immersed in creative thought processes. Also a skillful artist, Caitlin has created beautiful hand-renderings as needed for our Designer Showhouse spaces. Always in good spirits, she arrives inspired and challenged to fulfill a client’s vision each day.
A North Carolina native, Caitlin grew up on the East Coast where she travels often along with adventuring to the mountains to relish in the great outdoors with family and friends.
Caitlin enjoys curating pieces for the homes of her Mom and her two sisters, and refurbishing consignment finds for her eclectic home. As they say, and as Caitlin personifies, "Find a job you enjoy doing, and you'll never have to work a day in your life." Outside of her life as an Interior Designer, she likes to cozy up in a reading chair with a good book and map out the city as an avid runner and former collegiate cross-country athlete.
Michelle Snyder, Client Experience Specialist and Office Administrator, loves her job and enjoys witnessing the creative genius of Sally and Caitlin. She has over twenty years of experience in an administrative role. Michelle has worked in the mortgage industry as well as the insurance industry and Interior Design is by far the most fun!
Michelle is a wife and mother of two smart, loving, energetic boys, ages eleven and seven. Some of her hobbies include crocheting and reading. Michelle says, "reading is one of the best ways to grow your mind and use your imagination". Her boys also enjoy going to the library. Michelle and her family are big Penn State football fans, and her husband is from PA.
Michelle was born and raised in North Carolina. While she has lived in a few different states over the course of her adult life she is happy to be settled in NC, between the beautiful beaches and the mountains. She is pleased to be a part of the Colorful Concepts Interior Design team and continues to get excited with each new project embarked upon.
