Designer Spotlight: Meet Tyler C. Swoverland

Tyler C. Swoverland didn’t grow up planning to be an Interior Designer. In high school, he was a linebacker on the football team. Next he worked as a popular bartender and then became a restaurant manager. His diversified experiences provided the opportunity to observe the many different environments that would later inspire his artistic interior designs.

A famous Henry David Thoreau's quote inspires him: "It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts."
