- Interior designer Rebecca Howser believes that whether at work or at home, comfort is an essential element in any room. “I think your environment, your setting needs to be comfortable,” she says. “It helps you relax. It helps you feel at ease. I think your surroundings really affect how you work.” This principle guides the Columbia designer who works on both residential and commercial projects. – Mary-Kathryn Craft, Free Times
