Walking into the bar at 35 North-Farragut the first thought is “Oh Wow!” Thanks to interior designer Marshanda Pinchok, the vibe is artsy and original. Blank space gave way to her artistic vision.

“There’s a feature wall when you first walk into the bar at 35 North. They wanted to save money by not putting brick on the wall so they asked me for something grand then let me have my vision,” Pinchok said. “The project grew from that one wall until the whole thing became my baby. It’s all completely original artwork you won’t see anywhere else.

“What made it super special was I was able to pull my daughter in and let her do some of her own artwork. She drew a fabulous wing drawing on an exterior wall.”

Pinchok dipped her toe into the design world 18 years ago when she and her husband, Jeff Pinchok, were building a house. The designers complimented her on her style and said she should start her own design business, which she did within two years.

She specializes in residential design, but with 35 North-Farragut, she’s branched out successfully into commercial design.

Residential kitchens and baths are her bread and butter lately, but Pinchok offers a one-stop-shop type of service.

“I do it all and I have connections to all types of furnishing so I can give full service to my clientele. I want them to have the home of their dreams.”

She graduated from UT with a bachelor’s in Human Ecology (now known as Early Childhood Education) in 2000. She went into counseling, a perfect pairing for her interior design efforts.
