Blynn Nelson, IIDA

Interior Designer

“Architecture and interiors are integral, you can’t separate them. My mission is to take the spirit of the design concept all the way through, to the last detail, so that there is great consistency and integrity in the project.”


For more than 20 years, Blynn Nelson has practiced a balanced approach to interiors working with architecture guided by her creative vision. Blynn joined CJS Architects in 2014 and was instrumental in developing the interiors practice into a fully integrated discipline within the firm. She approaches historic and contemporary projects with equal passion and rigor – and always with a commitment to implementing the highest level of design intention and quality for interiors.


On every project, Blynn strives to create an environment that is lasting, meaningful and reflective of the unique culture and values of the people it serves. She is skilled at helping clients articulate their objectives and then translating those goals into a design that reflects - both aesthetically and functionally - the essence of who they are. An experienced communicator and resourceful problem-solver, she is valued by clients for her ability to build consensus around a clear vision.


Blynn’ s portfolio includes commercial, retail, cultural, residential and educational projects for a diverse set of clients, including The University of Rochester , Hobart and William Smith Collages , Geva Theater , Generations Bank , Bond Schoneck &King Attorneys LLP , MVP Healthcare , Post Acute Partners’ Capstone Development , Buckingham Properties ,The Men’s Room Barber Lounge & Spa , ARTWALK Tile Showroom


Blynn received her Bachelor of Interior Design degree from Rochester Institute of Technology. She is a member of the IIDA.
