Since she was a young girl, Guinevere has had a passion for art, architecture, and design. After earning a degree in fine art and art administration, Guinevere obtained her Masters of Science in interior design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. After graduation, she went on to teach interior architecture and design at the undergraduate and graduate levels in some of Mexico's best universities, including serving as Founding Director of the Department of Interior Design at The University of Monterrey. Returning to the States, she went on to teach part time at Illinois Institute of Art and The Art Institute of Chicago. Guinevere incorporates her love of different cultures throughout her designs drawing upon her Midwest roots, her time in design school in Copenhagen, growing up in New England, being a former New Yorker, and her work throughout Latin America. She currently lives in Andersonville where her ancestors lived when they came from Sweden, and she is proud to carry on a Chicago design tradition.
I love working with clients to bring out the best in their taste through my knowledge of the market. The most fun part about Homepolish is designing for so many different types of clients!
The project is going great! I have been extremely pleased with Guin and things are starting to arrive at my house! I know it's going to take awhile for it all to come in and be all put together, but I'm super pumped.
We are already having a wonderful experience with Guinevere. Her initial consultation went so well, we feel like she really understood our project priorities and our style.
Our designer was great! Very informative, tons of ideas
Guin is super friendly, knowledgable, and came prepared to dig into the nuts and bolts of the project.
Your service is wonderful. Guinevere made it all so easy for me and explained the vision and plan she saw for my place.
I've worked with a couple of designers in the past, and Guinevere is the best! She is timely, responsive, and is working hard to stay in budget. We couldn't be more pleased.
Guinevere was great - I am so excited about this service and working with her.
