The New Southern Style:
Vibrant Sophistication

For over a decade, Ruth Campbell has infused her style into homes, offices and magazine spreads. Inspired by designers such as Celerie Kemble, Miles Redd, Ruthie Sommers, Tom Delavan and India Hicks, Ruth is a flea market maven and thrift store junkie. Her ability to rework discarded rubbish into glamorous pieces is unparalleled, and she always breaks the rules. Encouraging clients to take risks is one of her favorite perks of the job.

Ruth broke into the design industry early when she joined Janie Molster of Janie Molster Designs fresh out of college. Eventually finding her way to New York,

she honed her styling chops in the shadow of Condé Nast market editors at Domino Magazine. Her designs were further brought to life on the showroom floor of Celadon Home, where Ruth kept the floor freshly styled as Visual Merchandiser.

Encouraged by friends and family, she opened Ruth Campbell Interior Styling, LLC in 2014. It had been a dream to open her own firm, and she now enjoys bringing her clients’ visions to life. Ruth has always drawn inspiration from her surroundings, from New York City to Sullivan’s Island, resulting in a mix of sleek urban elements with an easy coastal flair.  She currently lives in Charleston, SC with her husband, two children and black lab Libbie.


This is the second home that ruth has helped me decorate. She always manages to incorporate the latest trends in keeping with my own personal style. She brings a level of sophistication and comfort to every room in my house. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to do my decorating!

Ruth listened to my vision and was able to create a minimalist design environment, reflecting my modern theme. She has a keen sense of style, creative mind, and attention to detail.

Ruth’s ability to pair my personal taste with her design talent is what makes working with her so great. She is able to take the things I like and make them look good!

McKenzie Hutaff

Ruth has a gift! She can see our vision and help us obtain that perfect space all of our own. This is our first time working with a professional and we are so grateful for her mastery & panache!

Holly Kingston

Ruth has not only helped me with my 2 different residences, her talents and creative design work can be seen at my business, The Alley, as well. She has an uncanny ability to transform any room to meet any style and aesthetic vision.

Ruth has amazing talent and effortless style, bringing energy and flow to a space. She originally redesigned our nursery, we were so wowed, she has now had a hand in every room in our house! Her work encouraged using pieces we loved rather than starting from a clean slate, which is more than impressive!

Elizabeth Allen

We absolutely LOVED working with Ruth on some seriously needed updating.  She started with some great timeless staples then added some things outside of our “safe zone” that totally make the rooms.  She reworked walls and built ins like a boss.  This is the first time in 7 years of living here that I am really loving this home as a whole… thanks to her!

I have worked with Ruth on an office re-design and interior styling projects through the years. Her eye for balance and scale along with infusing unexpected details into spaces is always inspiring. Not to mention her enthusiasm and energy!

After Ruth worked her magic, I saw my house in a whole new light.  She did a wonderful job re-working the old and added a few new pops to make it feel fresh again.
