New Brand Design : Rebecca Gardner
Rebecca Gardner’s Southern upbringing and deep understanding of art and fashion history, architecture, and past and current social mores act as a foundation as she relays the narrative of each of her clients’ stories. An apt and spirited raconteur at heart, she layers periods, styles and personal objects, thereby illuminating one’s personal history in a compelling and uniquely memorable manner.
Supported by a decade of experience in interior design and event planning, Rebecca’s traditional style stems from her vast knowledge of American and Continental Antiques. An avid cook and frequent hostess, she trusts the power of beauty, practicality and comfort. Whether designing and planning for interiors or for events, clients can expect a taste-driven, appropriate and singular interpretation.
In addition to creating windows for Bloomingdale’s and Dylan’s Candy Bar, Rebecca has designed nationally and internationally in retail, restaurant, hotel and residential. Educated at the University of Mississippi and the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Rebecca worked most recently for SCAD as the Director of Creative Initiatives honing her creative eye under the valued tutelage of co-founder and president, Paula Wallace. Overseeing the planning and design of SCAD Style, Rebecca brought, celebrated and hosted leading artists and designers to the college community, decorated interiors for the college’s international campuses, and entertained this century’s leading tastemakers to include Hamish Bowles, Frank Gehry, Bunny Williams and Derek Blasberg. She was a guest during Season IV of the Discovery Channel’s “Man Shops Globe”.
When not entranced with a project, find Rebecca cooking casual dinners for friends and dancing to the Supremes.
