Tinsley Hutson-Wiley is a San Francisco-based interior designer who credits her Southern background and a plethora of artists in her family as a major influence on her design style and appreciation for art. She believes the sentimental and the serendipitous belong side-by-side in a home. Tinsley has lived and worked in the District of Columbia, New York, London, and Johannesburg. Her passions for travel, art, and architecture have contributed to her unique style that respects tradition and embraces the new. She incorporates sustainable materials into each of her design projects and is recognized as a certified green building and ASID professional.
Tinsley has an undergraduate degree in systems engineering and environmental science from the University of Virginia and continued her education in interior design and architecture at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Her strong knowledge of CAD and illustration software is balanced with her love of painting and sketching, which she uses to help her clients visualize design concepts. Tinsley also worked for notable firm, Kendall Wilkinson Design, before founding her own interior design firm in 2007.
