Our Founder, Payton Swenson, believes that a better home leads to a better life. From a cramped Chinatown apartment to a sprawling upstate estate, we can transform any home into an attractive and efficient living space that mirrors its owner’s best self. With an eye on trends in styling, decorating, and technology, we work alongside our clients to make their design dreams a reality. By building true and lasting relationships, Swenhome helps them break old habits, identify what works best, and flesh out their creative vision.
Payton's breadth of experiences—from collaborating with Homepolish on decorating Fueled Collective’s Soho coworking space to styling sets for film and magazine—allow her to source unique furniture and decorative pieces for her projects, create practical and durable storage solutions, and help her clients have realistic expectations for their homes that go deeper than achieving a polished (and often unattainable) magazine-style home. “It’s an intimate thing, working with someone so closely in their home,” says Swenson. “We help them let go of what’s not working for them anymore and look at things with a fresh perspective. Most importantly, we do it with love and respect. We don’t believe there is any room for judgement in professional organizing.”
