About Ceara Donnelley Ltd. Co.

Ceara Donnelley Ltd. Co. is a full-service interiors firm based in Charleston, South Carolina, and New York City. A native New Yorker, Ceara grew up in and around considered, layered, and well-loved family homes from the Berkshires to the South Carolina Lowcountry, and the magic of those places, inside and out, seeped into her psyche from an early age. Even while pursuing more academic interests at Yale and Yale Law School, interior design—and later, the idea of home—exerted a magnetic pull on Ceara. That pull ultimately led her to the project that served as classroom, laboratory, and launch point for her design career: the multi-year renovation and decoration of her own home, a c. 1740 Charleston single house, which was featured in the May/June 2021 issue of Veranda.

Today, Ceara works from a studio a stone’s throw from that formative first project, creating homes for clients who trust her to create sanctuaries and surroundings that are individual, bespoke, and finely tuned. Her eye for detail, character, and craftsmanship is the common thread through a diverse portfolio of projects in Charleston and beyond. While she revels in transforming spaces through decoration, Ceara’s preferred point of entry is at the outset of a renovation, where her talent for envisioning the way a home should live, both practically and atmospherically, is best deployed.
