At Beth Haley Design, we fancy ourselves problem solvers. Beth, herself, is a master at searching for solutions. Whether it be devising a design suited for a large family or making the most of a small space, her ability to prioritize function without sacrificing style is something truly magical.
Beth’s commitment to flow and functionality is a result of her time spent getting a degree in interior design at Watkins College of Art and Design. “I always gravitated towards the nuts and bolts of creating a space,” Beth shares. “Interior design goes beyond decorating and I always start a project by asking the client how they use the space.”
Let’s look back on a handful of projects that showcase BHD’s commitment to functionality and creating livable spaces.
