As a New York native and California resident, Betsy Lanphier (born Elizabeth Swift McDermott) brings a fresh perspective to her classical approach in design. Beginning with the bones of the room, she mixes an East Coast upbringing with her West Coast lifestyle to reveal refreshing, livable and timeless spaces, both in design & decoration.

After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Art History, Betsy followed a creative path with work in fashion, editorial and landscape design before pursuing her career in interiors. She credits her Mother, also a designer, for her keen visual eye and affinity for art & design. In addition, her invaluable experience at notable high end residential firms both in New York and California helped to pave the way for the launch of her own company.

Elizabeth Swift Interior Design opened in the Spring of 2014 and accepts a wide array of projects. Current ventures include a Pacific Heights residence, a Cow Hollow flat, and a Laurel Heights renovation, as well as homes in the East Bay and the Peninsula.
