Meet the Team
Husband and wife team Rick and Jennefer Guthrie are the faces behind the young, though much sought after design firm Interior Anthology. Founded in 2015 in the heart of Nashville, TN, multi-disciplinary firm Interior Anthology offers a warm, intelligent and carefully curated aesthetic to its wonderfully varied list of clients. The Guthrie’s deep appreciation for the visual arts is made evident in the work they collectively produce.
Rick lends years of experience, a multi-faceted skill set and an aesthete’s eye to the IA brand, offering hands on assistance in the development of his client’s personal art collections. With a background in fine art framing and presentation, Rick has since expanded his repertoire and works as a contractor in all aspects of art curating. A true renaissance man, Rick offers his services in everything from acquisition, installation and transportation of fine art, to sourcing artists and facilitating collaborations for client commissions. Rick seeks to offer a refined yet approachable service in the world of fine art, believing that a true appreciation of beauty is a universal experience.
Interior Designer Jennefer approaches each project with a highly receptive focus on the client, a great sense of humor and the discernment that comes with years immersed in a demanding sphere of fine artists and accomplished designers. Her collaborative approach and profound ability to tailor her work to the individual has garnered her attention in one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Her circuitous road through design began with an early education in ceramics, which contributed greatly to her personal aesthetic. Seamlessly combining function and beauty while maintaining a devotion to quality and thoughtful craftsmanship, she translates this value system into spaces that are lovely, soulful, and conducive to living a busy modern life.
Amber Grabowski moved to Nashville with her husband 3 years ago from Minnesota. She was born and raised in Denver, Colorado where she studied Interior Design. Her first step into design was as a visual manager with one of the largest home decor and furnishing retailer in the United States. Once she moved to Nashville she knew that something was missing in her career. In June of 2017 Amber had the opportunity to join Interior Anthology’s team as an Assistant Designer to both owners Rick and Jennefer. Interior Design has been a big part of her life for as long as she can remember. Looking for creative solutions for every space and everyday life, Amber loves to take on challenges of the constantly changing design world and create functional, attractive spaces for clients.
Taylor grew up in a world defined by design: her mother owns her own successful design firm and her father spends countless hours in his woodworking shop. These experiences, from childhood on, have given Taylor unique views regarding the form, function, and design of spaces and objects. Because of her parents and the creative environment, Taylor knew from a young age that she wanted to pursue a career in interior architecture. Her passion for design comes from the continuously changing design world which offers the opportunity of constant growth and learning. Taylor recently graduated from Columbia College Chicago and relocated with her husband from Chicago to the Nashville area.
Stacy Vest is a Jack-of-all-trades with a quick wit and a knack for bringing people together. It probably stems from her early career experience in the hospitality industry. Originally from a small town in North Carolina, Stacy set out to Nashville, TN at the age of 19. There, she spent 15 years working in the service industry, which helped build the foundation to cultivate her interests in other areas. After completing college with a degree in Business Administration, Stacy decided to go back to her hometown to be close to family, and began her career in Human Resources. Stacy excelled in her chosen field and rapidly climbed the corporate ladder. Amid her professional rise, Stacy realized that Nashville was truly where her heart belonged. She returned there in 2017 when she joined the team at Interior Anthology. With a concentration in accounting and marketing, Stacy lends her expertise and systematized approach, while keeping the accounts maintained and the office coordinated.
