Stephanie Andrews founded Balance Design in 2002 after being encouraged by her family to pursue her dream of starting her own design firm. Since then, she and her team have created hundreds of curated interiors, ranging from single rooms to entire homes.
Stephanie is an intuitive listener who is especially attentive to the needs and aesthetic preferences of individual clients. Her discerning eye for color, furniture, rugs, and art has become a hallmark of her design aesthetic, allowing her to incorporate clients’ own furniture with new pieces. The result is beautiful, authentic spaces that leave a lasting impression.
