Taylor Laura Ghost was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. She now resides in sweet Saxapahaw, North Carolina with her husband, Chris Pence of Haand. Having recently completed a BFA in Interior Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Taylor's path has been circuitously beautiful. Inspired by the quote above, she began a personal design blog by the name Perfectly Taylor'd in 2009. It wasn't until a little while later that she decided to leave her job in the litigation department of a private law firm (after almost a decade of administrative work!) and has since worked on numerous creative projects ranging from interiors, photography, styling and beyond. Her work experience for the more recent past includes being one of the first five lead Home Stylists for West Elm and more recently as a Junior Designer / Production Manager with the lovely team at Sitzer Spuria Studios.
Currently she is an Interior Designer for Winston Salem's CJMW Architecture. Though not featured on this personal site, through CJMW her work includes hospitality, corporate, senior living, and multi-family spaces across the U.S.
If Taylor isn't busy working on a creative project, she enjoys being around her close-knit community, running, dancing, painting, weaving baskets, and eating inordinate amounts of cheese. Taylor lives under a strong appreciation for continued learning and exploration of creativity.
