Cortney’s design vision runs the gamut of style and structure, balancing creativity, comfort, and functionality with a dose of modern flair. She attributes her innate ability to mix patterns and hues to her love for travel, art, fashion, and music. Ultimately, the path to interior design became inevitable as Cortney realized she could blend these passions, first with a partner in 2002, and eventually to founding her own interior design firm in 2009. Specializing in custom residential builds, Cortney has grown her business by collaborating with homeowners, architects, and contractors to create a robust portfolio of diverse, inspiring homes – each
reflective of a client’s lifestyle and personality. Cortney has also earned success in multi-family communities as well as in the commercial realm – most recently with hotel, restaurant, and storefront projects. Likewise, Cortney’s passion for design has evolved into the development of her own textile line which will launch in early 2019.
Cortney resides on Sullivan's Island, a small barrier island along the South Carolina coastline just south of downtown Charleston, with her husband (Baker), two children (Ryder and Lucy Kohl), and two labradoodles. When's she's not digging in to her latest project, you can find her embracing 'hang time' on her front porch with lively beats streaming from her record player.
