MEET TAYLOR

Charleston, South Carolina-based interior designer Taylor DeBartola creates smart spaces that amplify his clients’ sense of self and consciously support their lifestyle. Known for his ability to source one-of-a-kind vintage treasures—which he deftly mixes with custom textiles and modern furnishings and finishes—he delivers highly original designs that are as timeless as they are rife with personality.

Raised on antique markets, fabric stores, and fried okra, the Atlanta native has boasted a (wonderfully outspoken and always honest) eye for scale and design since he could talk. After professional detours through the fields of finance and sales, the College of Charleston graduate founded Taylor DeBartola Interiors in 2015, two years after buying and designing his first home. “I had always dreamed of creating a space for myself—a home, an anchor—that was a reflection of my story, joyful, and comfortable all at once,” says Taylor. “Once I did and realized the life-changing magic of it, I knew I had to help others create their own perfect spaces.”

Taylor is fluent in an array of styles, and works with clients ranging from first-time homebuyers in the Holy City to business owners in Manhattan. Past and current projects include a light and bright kitchen renovation for an 1866 Charleston single house, as well as full-service designs for a New York City loft, family home in Mount Pleasant, Hampton Park bungalow, and brunch-focused Westside eatery set to open in early 2018. 

My job is to extrapolate the true style of my client and weave that with a luxurious, timeless, and chic sensibility that few people give themselves permission to embrace.
