KRISTEN HANCOCK

Founder and CEO

Meet Kristen Hancock, the Founder and CEO of StyleMeGHD as well as the Owner and Interior Design Director at Guided Home Design. Kristen founded StyleMeGHD based on her strong desire to share the vast assortment of unique products she sources with the audience she had built over the years.“I am constantly exposed to so many beautiful items through the sourcing I do for my design firm. After years of requests pouring in from more people than I had time to “quickly” help find furniture or home decor items, I couldn’t resist answering the request once and for all. That is when StyleMeGHD was born.” - Kristen Hancock

Kristen traveled with her design team across the country to countless furniture, home decor and gift markets to identify the curated collection of products which would ultimately be introduced as the StyleMeGHD brand. They sought out items which are versatile in a range of styles, equally functional and aesthetically pleasing while cost effective yet maintaining a high level of quality. They soon identified the need for an extension of the brand in the form of a retail brick and mortar location in Old Town Scottsdale.StyleMeGHD is continuously expanding their team of specialists, visionaries and industry professionals to ensure they are offering the best in furniture, decor and fashion forward finds.
