About Us


We are a full-service interior design firm with both a large studio and showroom on Fort Mill’s quaint historic Main Street.  Founded by Lynn Blackwell in 2013, our mission is to create beautiful, functional spaces that are personalized for each client and their own specific needs and personal style.  Our goal is to create a home that you love, and one that is undeniably you.

You can visit our large downstairs showroom, with twelve fully styled rooms with dozens of seating options for you to see, sit in and test, to see the quality and variety of products we sell.  Each room is designed with its own unique style for an even more informative experience.

And as stocking dealers for manufacturers like Lee Industries and Lillian August, we’re also here to help you select and order custom upholstery even if you don’t need design services.  We’d love to help you find your perfect chair or sofa!

Our Team

Lynn Blackwell

Owner + Interior Designer

Lynn specializes in creating personalized interiors that are uniquely suited to each client’s taste and lifestyle. She loves all styles, mixes old and new, and adores a good before and after. Lynn’s love for houses led her to give up a CPA license in favor of a Builder’s license, which soon after, led to her graduation from an accredited 4-year Interior Design program. She and her husband live in Fort Mill, have two children, three grandchildren, and an adorable dog named Bailey.

Lynn holds a BS in Accounting from the University of South Carolina and a BFA in Interior Design from Winthrop University.  She is an Allied ASID member.
