Beverly Bohan, principal designer of Haute Design, Inc., has three decades of interior design experience that started from small beginnings and has grown to include multi-million dollar projects. Following in the footsteps of two previous generations of construction and building, her interior design career began in 1980 in Washington, D.C. and continued on in Columbia, South Carolina where she owned an interior design firm for fourteen years that included a storefront of retail antiques and accessories in its latter years. Throughout her early passage in the interior design world, Beverly was privileged to secure accounts with Fortune 500 clients such as Pepsi-Cola and DavCo Foods, a member of the Wendy’s Franchise. Then, with the start of the new millennium, Beverly was ready for change and made the business move to Charleston, South Carolina. Out of inspiration from the low country and Charleston’s historical spirit came the birth of Haute Design, Inc., an interior design studio and storefront, elegantly nestled in the eclectic design district of historic Charleston’s Upper King Street.
Since its inception in 2000, Beverly Bohan has brought Haute Design to a level of prestige and great reputation due to its successes in the specialization of both new construction and renovations that maintain the integrity of the historic structures. Whether it be a residential, commercial, hospitality, or retail project, Beverly keeps a keen eye on current styles, but remains perpetually committed to the essential classics of timeless design. Beverly’s approach of infusing European and American antique furniture and accessories with a fresh, modern take establishes a unique, updated transitional edge for the home or work place.
One of Haute Design’s fundamental areas of expertise lies in Beverly’s dedication to preserving the Charleston area’s wonderful array of historic structures. This particular dedication has served many projects, including a historic 19th century home on Meeting St. , a circa 1840s Federal mansion on historic Vanderhorst Street, the Sottile House—a Queen Anne style jewel within the College of Charleston’s dramatic campus, and the low country’s sophisticated Planters Inn penthouse suites. Other projects serving the greater Charleston area include; The Folly Beach Hotel, which blends into its surroundings through displays of underwater creatures, custom made lighting, and South Beach style of furnishings; The Peoples Building, a graceful turn-of the century civic building on Broad Street adaptively reused to become upscale condominiums and offices; the Greek Revival style KKBE Jewish Temple; and the international Port City Shipping Company offices. Clearly, past and present projects include exclusive residential, restaurant, and resort facilities that echo the majestic significance of their surroundings.
No matter the realm, Beverly continually embraces all projects with her passion and her inventive eye, whether by simply refreshing a client’s look or creating new custom designs and furniture. Today she is assisted by a skilled team of professional designers whose talents, experiences, and aptitudes range, but who are all committed to the same common standard of excellence: a professional approach regarding the needs of the client in any scope, an artistic execution of requisite creativity, and, ultimately, a finished product speaking volumes for the sensory language of timeless design.
