My design career started when I graduated from Bowling Green State University with degrees in interior design and marketing, and started into the field of visual merchandising and retail design. After a couple of years in Columbus, Ohio I made plans move to Greenville to embark on a new adventure. Once here, I had the privilege of working for two premiere design firms where I was able to design custom homes in exclusive Greenville and surrounding neighborhoods, as well as some of the most exclusive resort communities in the country. During this time, I also felt it important to seek the highest level of professionalism in my field, and obtained my certification from the National Council of Interior Design Qualification. In doing so, I joined a small group of designers in Greenville that hold this certification. After a few years and some wonderful experiences, I decided it was time to open my own studio and do my kind of design. I enlisted the help of my favorite partner and best friend...my sister, Sara, to open Stephanie Swander Interiors.
My signature style uses vibrant color and exciting patterns over a neutral backdrop to create interiors that are both lively and classic. I approach each job with a fresh perspective and take pride in creating a unique look for my clients. We offer full-service interior design, which means we can help you with everything from paint colors and window treatments, to custom kitchen and bath designs, and everything in-between. We can supply your lighting and furnishings needs and work with other professionals to finalize every detail of your home.
When I'm not designing I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband Stephen and our sweet baby girl, Emmeline. I also enjoy serving Christ and my church family at Grace Church Pelham.
