Ken Swyt Design Studio
The design and staging studio is filled with treasures that would look at home in either a Portland Craftsman bungalow, a turn of the century Colonial Revival, or a Modern Revival home.
Brightly colored glass vases, vintage pottery, metal sculptures and glass terrariums are all available to style a home so it can shine its brightest.
Ken’s Design Philosophy
Creating beautiful and appropriate environments requires embracing the integrity of the space and allowing it’s strengths to be featured and embellished upon.
Great design incorporates the appreciation for color, pattern and textures, light, scale and continuity, all within the space it is intended for.
Creating a sensory experience whether it be through the sounds of a water feature or the fragrance of orange blossoms, is key to engaging with the participant.
Ken Swyt Design is:
Organic with a modern twist
Sophisticated and simple
Modern meets whimsy
