Cynthia Duckworth

Cynthia is a native Georgia Peach who has always had a passion for art and color. Since the age of 12, she knew she wanted to be an interior designer when her parents did a major addition to their home wherein, she was allowed to design her room. Upon completion and having seen the results, her sister begged to switch rooms with her. This early success precipitated Cynthia’s passion and love for interior design.

After graduating with honors with a B.F.A. in Art History from Georgia State University, she immediately began studying interior design at American Intercontinental University in Buckhead. Cynthia has extensive hands-on experience in kitchen and bathroom design.

When she is not at work, Cynthia loves going to the beach with her husband and son, hanging out with her boy-mom girlfriends and boxing with Supernatural, a Virtual Reality workout app.

Cynthia believes that well-designed spaces provide an immeasurable impact on a client’s health, wealth, and happiness, and loves being part of the process.
