Custom interiors for contemporary living.
Stephanie began painting and wallpapering at the age of 14 for her parents general contracting company. She then spent her first year after graduation from Southern Methodist University as the construction manager at
New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity and continued to dedicate many years to affordable
housing in New Orleans and Washington, DC.
In 2007 Stephanie and her husband Ted purchased a row house from his parents in the historical Fan neighborhood of Richmond, VA. During the next year, she oversaw a complete renovation to convert the 100+ year old duplex to a home for her family.
Stephanie enjoyed renovating her home so much she then completed a certificate of interior design from the University of Richmond.
Shortly after, she founded Modern Traditions Interior Design LLC in 2012.
