At the Guest House Studio we strongly believe that the spaces we inhabit are not just buildings we have placed our “stuff” in, but rather they are a personal testimony to who we are and how we want to live. The home is where we celebrate life’s most precious moments and seek shelter for its worst. That’s why, at the Guest House Studio, we strive to not only create thoughtful and functional spaces but also ones that are uniquely crafted for those who inhabit it.
Our principal designer, Christyn Dunning has over ten years of experience in the interior design and construction industry, with a degree in Interior Architecture. With several connections to contractors and builder’s in the area, The Guest House Studio operates as a design build firm for many of their clients. Our goal is to make the renovation or new build experience as stress free as possible! Which is why we act as a liaison between our clients wishes and their contractors.
Since opening its doors in 2014, the studio has won several awards for its designs and has been featured in several printed and online publications, gaining recognition for Christyn's fresh, sophisticated style and attention to detail. As a design firm, we believe in combining patterns and textures, embracing the new while honoring the old, and conceptualizing a space from its foundation to furniture, as it is all an integral part of the process. Because of this, our designs have become recognizable for their fresh, modern and yet collected aesthetics.
Our design expertise will help to ensure that when the process is finished, you will have a space that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and so very you.
