Meet Wanda

 Wanda Horton, Interior Designer 

I’ve always held this belief to be true:  excellent design comes from a special balance, discovered between beauty and order.  I see it as a combination of an artistic expression and a mastery of a practice.  I also believe design can smooth away the bumpy edges of everyday life.  It impacts us in ways we often aren’t able to articulate; however, we feel its presence wherever we are.   

As a child, I tagged along with my mother as she made her way through antique stalls in search of furnishings and accents; those moments ignited the spark to dig deeper into the history of design. My grandmother also influenced me with the remarkable ability to take investment pieces, layer them with special finds, and create the art of living well.  I took those influences, added a degree in interiors from East Carolina University, and launched into the professional world of design.

Today I deliver homes that bring a fresh twist to a traditional style.  Walking into one of my homes should make you feel uplifted, and living in one should make you feel loved and nurtured.  Through design, I can help your life function more smoothly and efficiently; at the same time, I can make you feel hopeful and supported.

My clients have active lives and their projects contain complex details and decision-making, along with time-consuming follow-up and follow-through.  My interior design practice incorporates an exclusive master plan for your home, and my team and I oversee your full-service project from concept to completion. We take care of every detail and deadline so you can relax and enjoy the creation of your new home.

Since the inception of my design firm, I’ve appreciated the recognition of my work featured in publications and blogs such as Charlotte Home + Garden, The Charlotte Observer, The French Garden House, The Decorating Diva, HFC – “Live an Exceptional Life”, and as a Style Spotter for the High Point Furniture Market.  I’ve also been honored as a featured presenter for design industry events.  However, nothing compares to experiencing the delight in a client’s eyes when they behold the transformation of their own space, and they realize that the bumpy edges of life have truly been smoothed away.
