We believe design is personal.

Founded in April of 2015, the Guest House Studio has successfully managed more than 30 projects and counting for clients across the country with home bases in both Charleston, SC and Annapolis, MD. 


With our bread and butter in new construction and residential renovations, our firm has curated a dynamic portfolio that spans commercial interior design, short term rental revamps and model home staging. 


Since opening our doors, our full-service interior architecture and design firm has earned a sterling reputation for seamlessly integrating three major facets of a build to include construction, architecture and interiors. Press and praise includes features in Forbes, Houzz and more. 


Best believe, we’re just getting started.  


Named by Houzz among the Best Interior Designers in Charleston since 2016, Guest House Studios prides itself on clear communication, complete transparency and building lasting relationships with each and every one of our clients. 


For us, design is personal. We find timeless presentations stem from personal testimonies and spaces that tell stories. Far more than a swoon-worthy social media post, we want your space to be your sanctuary the second you walk in the door - giving you that kick off your shoes, grab a glass of wine and unwind from life feeling. 


To accomplish this, our focus begins and ends with you - your vision and your lifestyle from drawings to drapes.

Founder, Lead Designer

Principal and Founder behind The Guest House Studio, Christyn's love of design stems from working alongside her father on the Construction field in small town Pennsylvania. 


Christyn holds a Bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro in Interior Architecture.  Before opening the Guest House Studio, she worked for a high-end, prestigious design firm in Annapolis, MD where she guided clients in Northern Virginia, DC, Delaware, and Maryland through dozens of commercial and residential interior design projects. 


With creativity and certifications in spades, Christyn sets a new standard in how she communicates with her clients and manages projects. She believes there is immeasurable value in making it personal by getting to know you.  From this, she prides herself on being able to design functional spaces that resonate for years to come and never hesitating to go above and beyond for her clients. 


In addition to her shepreneur sprint, Christyn is passionate about giving back more than she's been blessed with. Putting these mantras into practice, she is proud to serve as Charleston’s Chapter President for Savvy Giving by Design and insists on fair trade and practices in every aspect of her business.   


When Christyn isn’t working, you can find her either at the beach or in the mountains of Pennsylvania, often with a good book, vinyl on the player and her furry man, Mr. Tiki, electrician husband, and beautiful baby girl June by her side.
