Carolyn C. Pendleton, ASID, IIDA

Carolyn Pendleton is the president and owner of Pendleton+Bowman (P+B) and has served as director of the interior design services arm of the firm since founding the company in 1983.

Registered as an interior designer in Florida, she received her design degree from Florida State University and has practiced extensively and exclusively in the state ever since. 

Before founding the company in 1983, Pendleton worked for 14 years with other firms on a wide array of both architectural and interior design projects, giving her the breadth of experience necessary to establish P+B. Of those years, five were spent with an architecture, engineering and planning firm and nine were spent with space planning/interior architecture groups as part of in-house operations for contract design furniture dealerships.

Her experience in space planning and interior design are integral to the success of P+B restoration projects, as Pendleton works closely with both owners and boards of directors on everything from interior architecture and space planning to color specifications, lighting design, and finishes and fixtures for both commercial and residential clients.
