Charlie Hellstern

After more than 20 years working with some of the most highly-regarded design and architecture firms in the Pacific Northwest, Charlie has built a successful interior design studio of her own to continue serving her valued Clients.

Spaces that reflect both elegance and comfort is the primary goal of Charlie’s work and she believes each design/space should reflect the needs and desires of those who call it home. Through years of relationship-building, she is proud to work with an extensive community of artisans and craftspeople both locally and abroad who fabricate custom furniture and art pieces to complete her diverse homes and commercial spaces. 

Charlie’s work explores new combinations of textures and pushes the boundaries of commonplace surfaces to provide a comfortable and timeless feel.  A Seattle native and graduate of the Art Institute, Charlie’s work has been built globally and published extensively.
