Tamara Matthews-Stephenson is a NYC residential interior designer, freelance writer and lifestyle expert. She has two degrees -- baccalaureate degree from Castleton State College and a certificate in interior design from Parsons School of Design. In the days after graduating college and before attending Parsons, Tamara worked in publishing at Inc. Magazine and then in public relations for Trylon Communications in New York City, and while in design school she stylized the windows for the former Madison Avenue Flagship store windows of Dooney & Bourke. All of these creative positions were perfectly poised Tamara for her next position working for Barbara Southerland Interior Design with offices in both Greenville, North Carolina and New York City. Tamara learned the ins and outs of the design business at BSID, coordinating all aspects of residential projects from conception to installation. In 1999 she began taking on her own clients. In addition to running her design business, she now merges her former writing experiences with her design training by penning her popular lifestyle blog Nest by Tamara. She also regularly contributes editorials on assignments for websites and print publications, including penning a weekly column called East End Nest for East Hampton magazine, Dan’s Papers. Tamara has become adept as the consummate hostess, throwing both small and large parties in her home, as well as for public and private events. She has organized many soirees for friends and charity events. Today, her friends marvel at her ability to create parties with elegance yet with ease, and now she is sought after to take part in events as a lifestyle expert where she imparts her wisdom and trained, cultivated eye to talk and write about interior design, cooking, entertaining and travel.painted and appointed an older kitchen

Design On A Dime in New York City.
I created a French-inspired dining room for this annual charity event, with all donated items then sold for Housingworks charity during the event. We added a fireplace mantel, painted a chandelier, wallpaper, sconces, painted floor, rug, furniture and set the table for a festive celebration.
