Hayley McDonald


Hayley graduated from Winthrop University, the state’s leading interior design school, with a Bachelors Degree in Interior Design. She has been with Westend since her internship during the summer of 2010.

Hayley’s design inspiration comes from the interplay of color and texture. She genuinely loves the whole process of her job. From meeting her clients and really getting to know them and their lifestyle to the challenge of finding the exact pieces for each project Preferring a ‘hands on’ design technique, Hayley understands the importance of a successful working relationship with her clients to achieve each client’s vison. Hayley says, “My favorite part of design is providing a space that reflects the client’s lifestyle. I enjoy the challenge of bringing the essential elements together to achieve a cohesive balance of style and functionality…one that will be enjoyable and lasting.”

Hayley’s grandmother, who she is named after, always wanted to be a designer. This is where her true passion for design stemmed from. Hayley’s weekends include soaking in sweet memories at the beach with her sons Luke and Reid or being a helping hand in her husband Collin’s Sandwich shop in the heart of Downtown Columbia.
