Meet the Team
In 2012, with thirteen years of design experience behind her, Catherine Hersacher founded Bespoke Fine Interiors in Aiken, South Carolina. Having worked for some of the top firms in the country in the high-end residential and ultra-exclusive hospitality sectors of the industry, Catherine made the move to go out on her own and offer truly custom design services to clients locally and nationwide. The decision to be in Aiken, SC was based on finding a balance to do what she loves, horses and design. The small southern town of Aiken supports both incredibly well. In a very short period of time, Catherine has developed Bespoke into a brand that signifies one of a kind, curated interiors for a broad range of styles and tastes.
Catherine’s education makes her truly unique in the design industry. She holds an Associates Degree in Interior Design, a pre-professional Architecture Degree and a Masters Degree in Industrial Design. This background coupled with the extensive experience she gained in all of her past firms, allows her to bring a sophisticated, “big design firm” approach to all of her projects. She values relationships with her clients above all and strives to make their projects speak if the owners, not the designer.
Prior to settling in Aiken, Ms. Hersacher gained invaluable knowledge in the luxury residential design field while working in Palm Beach, Florida. From kitchen design and hard finish selection to construction consultation and decoration, she completed projects with multi-million dollar budgets, including several spec homes for a customer builder.
After leaving Florida to return to the Northeast, Ms. Hersacher joined an exclusive hospitality design firm as an interior designer and specifications manager. Many of the projects were five-star and boutique properties, including hotels, clubhouses, residential towers and conference centers. These projects were located around the globe. Ms. Hersacher became part of the Asia team and was sent often to present and conduct site visits in China and Hong Kong.
With this worldly exposure and background, Ms. Hersacher is able to achieve a design for any project that is cogent with her client’s tastes and context.
