Thanh Buswell Interiors, LLC (TBI) was established in January 2018 with the mission to help clients create joyful, simplified spaces through thoughtful design and professional guidance. Our design aesthetic is new-traditional, classic + timeless, and always nature-inspired. Learn about my design services, how we work, and read client testimonials.
I have always had a passion for interior decorating and design and understood the important role that beautiful and functional spaces play in cultivating joy and peace in our everyday lives. I created this business to serve others in helping them achieve this result through thoughtful design and guidance.
After leaving a corporate career in federal contracting as a proposal manager, instead serving in a consultant role that provided flexibility, I begin to research education opportunities in the field of interior design and began working for a local Northern Virginia interior designer. In 2017, I completed an accredited Interior Design Certification program through the New York Institute of Art and Design (NYIAD) and passed examination through to become a certified Residential Interior Designer (RIDQC). In 2018, I registered Thanh Buswell Interiors, LLC.
My education and professional Federal contracting background informs the way I work today; I bring the same affinity for clear and streamlined processes, care and attention to detail to this new wonderfully, creative business. Now that I look back, I can see every professional experience has been a value-add as I took the leap into this new endeavor!
Successful design is about making informed and intentional choices that bring joy and add value to our homes and workspaces. To me, designing spaces that cultivate joy is rooted in simplifying. I do this by helping clients articulate what is good and life-giving to them in terms of their spaces and editing out what isn’t. I’m passionate about getting to know each client — asking the right questions, listening intently, and translating what I learn into clear, thoughtful guidance and designing spaces that will bring my clients personal joy.
