Founded in 2014, The Guest House Studio was formed by Christyn Dunning. Derived from her passion for all things design and the simple belief that a persons home should be like their own personal journal, filled with all the things they love. The studio embraces the unexpected and strives to create one of a kind spaces that are tailored specifically to each client. Check out her personal bio below!
Born and raised in small town Pennsylvania, Christyn's passion for design stems from working alongside her father, who taught her the importance of well built interiors. She continued to pursue her love for design at the University of North Carolina - Greensboro, where she acquired her Bachelors of Science degree in Interior Architecture. It was here that she learned how to integrate all aspects of design to create spaces that are functional but still aesthetically pleasing. Her love for travel has taken her many places, and she has collected items along the way that makes that one place truly unique. She believes that each persons home should do the same and reflect what makes those who inhabit it, one of a kind. She typically finds her inspiration when she is among nature, on her travels, or with the people she meets along the way. While her design aesthetic covers a wide range of styles, it is best described as the perfect combination of rustic and urban elements thus creating eclectic but refined spaces. Her vast experience with Architecture, Construction, and Interiors makes her a one stop shop for anyone looking to build new or redo. Christyn loves to spend her days by the sea listening to a good band or getting lost in a great book. She currently resides in Charleston, SC with her favorite pooch Mr. Tiki.
