Phoebe Beachner's preliminary experience of interior design as an adolescent, and as an out of state student at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), helped her spark a passion for interior design.

When she started her undergraduate studies at SCAD, she was continuously given opportunities to work with professionals, as a teammate, and as a team leader, and the chances to learn and create outside of her comfort zone.

In 2013, she moved to Savannah, Georgia from Olathe, Kansas to work towards completing her B.F.A. in interior design, while minoring in architectural history. Recently, she graduated with her Master of Professional Studies in Sustainable Interior Environments degree from the New York School of Interior Design and completed her internship with Taylor Spellman New York, a staging and luxury interior design firm located in New York.

Instilled with a love of learning, a love for animals, and a love for "place" at a young age, Phoebe spent the summer of 2016 teaching interior design courses to high school students from all over the world on the Yale University campus with Exploration Summer Programs.

During her final year at SCAD, she proposed and completed her capstone project regarding education and appreciation for honey bees. Her space consisted of a retail division, a gallery and educational division, and a creative, hands-on classroom division all including custom components and interactive key experiences.

Aside from her schoolwork, Phoebe is an equestrian who spends most of her time riding her horse, Koraal, five or six times a week. As a competitive athlete for the past 16 years, Phoebe has participated in competitions nationally throughout the Midwest and on the East Coast.
