“I think of design as a magical process where something that didn’t exist suddenly does…and that’s what I love about what I do. I love developing a complete design, a 360 vision that considers the intentions of the client, the architecture of the space, and all the while artfully combining scale, balance, proportion, texture, and hue in a way that marries beauty and lifestyle. Great design is about walking into a space, and every single time feeling one thing: this is as it should be.”
Inspired by her mother, an artist and teacher, Glenna developed her sense of color and composition at a young age. She has always had a passion for combining color, materials and textures in an artful manner. Paralleling her creative side, Glenna embraced her strong technical skills and received a degree in engineering from Lehigh University. Upon graduation she worked as a consultant and project manager in the consumer products industry. While achieving much success in this previous career, she felt the need to embrace her more creative side and began taking interior design courses at the Boston Architectural College and the Rhode Island School of Design. After much consideration, Glenna decided to combine her technical and creative skills and pursue a graduate degree in interior design. Glenna graduated from Drexel University with a Masters degree in Interior Architecture and Design. Glenna prides herself on being an original thinker, a good listener with impeccable attention to detail, and someone who sees each project phase through to completion. She finds her work as an interior designer exceptionally rewarding because it allows her to enhance the quality of others’ lives through design.

Amber Guyton, Blessed Little Bungalow
Monday, April 24, 11:30am-12:30pm
Hi! I’m Amber – blog creator and interior designer of Blessed Little Bungalow! I’m a South Carolina native (turned Georgian, Texan, Californian and Georgian again!), former-techy, marketer, and travel lover that faithfully decided to create something new. I wholeheartedly believe that you should love where you live, and loving your home shouldn’t require spending a fortune! Affordable and aesthetically pleasing home décor is well within reach, you just have to look in the right places with the right eye. Not coming from much, I was brought up always shopping on a budget. I’ve been a design-on-a-dime decorator for myself and loved ones for years, and after purchasing my second home affectionately known as my Blessed Little Bungalow, I decided to share my interior design journey, DIY adventures, decorating advice and services with the masses. I’d like to say I have an untraditional approach to designing spaces as I want it to be an authentic and easy conversation as well as a refreshing and collaborative experience. Your home is your most personal of spaces. It should be comfortable and fulfilling. It should excite and inspire you upon every departure and return. Your home is a reflection of you and your place in this world. Let me help you make it one that you love.
