With over 16 years in the industry, Tyler Wisler has established himself as one of New York’s most influential and dynamic designers with an international clientele. Tyler earned a certificate from the New York School of Interior Design, and graduated from Marymount University with a BA in Interior Design.

Most notably though, Tyler is a Pinterest “Pinfluencer” in both the Home Décor and Men’s Fashion categories touted by both Mashable and the Huffington Post as “one to follow”. He has been seen in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, New York Spaces, and recently HOSS Magazine offered Tyler a position as one of their permanent celebrity contributors.
