"Interior Design is Not Just a Luxury. It's a Necessity."
Betsy Bardi is a true believer that your environment affects everything about your mood, your ability to work, and your ability to relax. Your interior design is also a personal and creative reflection of you as an individual.
Betsy knew from a very young age that Interior Design was where she thrived and wanted to pursue in life. She graduated from East Carolina University in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. Since then, she's gained experience by working in many facets of the interior design industry. These include private firms, design centers, showrooms, and retail. All of these paths have led her here to running her own custom residential interior design firm. Betsy believes there is enormous strength in design freedom and having access to anything in the world that you need to complete a project.
Betsy's own Interior Design has no restrictions! She thrives on listening to her clients' needs and translating those needs into something beautiful that they love. Her goals are to please the client, stretch them a bit and present new and exciting ideas they may not have come up with on their own.
Through accurate space planning, architectural detailing, pre-construction, and use of scale and color she strives to create a space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing to both the client and the designer.
In her free time Betsy loves to spend time with her Family which includes her husband, two children, and her pup! She also loves to travel, drink coffee, cook (when time allows), and explore new exciting destinations for Design Inspiration. International Travel carries heavy influence on a lot of her Interior Design.

I graduated from East Carolina University in 2017 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. I always knew I wanted to work in a place that allowed creative expression and helped clients or customers achieve their goals-whatever those may be. I ended up in the design industry by luck and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I've learned that I thoroughly enjoy watching a project evolve and I love being there through the process from beginning to end. I believe communication is important in any industry and I do my best here to make sure that there’s constant flow of conversation between our clients and our firm. I also help ensure that the process of ordering and receiving items is as painless as possible. My overall goal is to lend a helping hand wherever it’s needed, and to make sure that at the end of your project you are happy and satisfied in your new space. In my free time, I love spending time with my family at my beach house and hanging out with friends. I also enjoy reading, hiking and drinking coffee.
