From molding playdough and rearranging her bedroom at the age of five to a college graduate with her own business, Becky Hunt is a successful woman who likes to think of herself as a shabby chic designer and artist.
She is the owner and founder of B Designs. Her M.O. is as Designer and Decorator with an artistic twist! Becky Hunt, although born in Newark, Delaware, is a southern girl at heart with big talent. She was only two years old when her family moved to Rock Hill, South Carolina. Now at the age of twenty-four, she would not have it any other way. It all started in college at the University of South Carolina with an internship at Pulliam Morris Interiors in Columbia, South Carolina. The incredible designers took her under their wings and taught her everything she needed to know. From there she also went on to teach the fresh minds of toddlers at Small Hands Big Art. This led Becky to design children’s rooms, so they have a place to create magic as any young mind would do.
Becky does a lot of work for friends in Rock Hill, but most of her clients are in the Fort Mill area. She says, “I love how the people of Fort Mill aren’t afraid of wanting the unique and custom made. I have felt embraced by all aspects of Fort Mill and I feel like the people are always there to greet you with open arms and doors to share their time with you!”
She has had many clients in the town of Fort Mill including Laurabree Monday from our very own CN2 News station. Mrs. Monday was B Design’s first client in need of a custom mural design for her little one. Excited and anxious, Becky knew that this was her chance to shine. Monday says, “ Becky was terrific, she took the time to come up with a design that was unique for us and adjusted it as we went along to make it just perfect. It was equally fun to watch her creative juices unfold into a reality on our wall.” She also said, “My husband and I smile every time we walk into our son's room. We can only imagine the wonderful dreams Ethan will have in his nursery thanks to Becky’s mural.”
Since then, she has done many murals, painted and refurbished furniture, and designed rooms for many people and places. One of the projects she has begun now is at The Bump Maternity Boutique, located in Baxter Village. She is putting her artistic abilities to work in the fitting room. She described these murals as fabulous and whimsical and says that this will keep any mom-to-be inspired to keep trying on new things.
Becky also has many other upcoming projects. She will be re-doing a powder room for Page 6 in Baxter Village. This room will incorporate hand painted wallpaper and hand painted frames to showcase NicCole Photography's images of the boutique's clothing. Also, Becky has been invited to create the design and concept for artwork that will be done by the Boys and Girls Clubs of York County to be displayed in the windows of JCPenny while it is being renovated. Just to name a few more exciting adventures, she will be traveling to Florida to work on a beach house for a client and begin creating painted floorings. I guess we could say that she is overwhelmed with excitement.
Working along side B Designs is the company MicroHUNT Consulting. Together, they are working on building a website that will allow customers to show Becky just what they want thousands of miles away. MicroHUNT Consulting has allowed Becky to take the non-creative side of B Designs off of her shoulders and on to theirs. They will continue to work together on the business side of things.
Her dream was always to design with the likes of Genevieve Gorder from HGTV’s Dear Genevieve, but now she says, I think my dream project is to design and decorate my own home and take what I have learned from my clients and turn it into a space that I can call home.” She is inspired by clients and friends and says, “Without my family’s support, I would not be where I am today.”
