TEAM EFFORT

You’ve got to find me a house — and soon.” That urgent request came from a long-time client to designer Patti Woods. What resulted is a crisp and clean modern bachelor’s home in Mountain Brook, a verdant suburb of Birmingham, Alabama.  
Fortunately, Woods was uniquely suited to execute the call’s directive. She had worked with the client, an entrepreneur in his forties, on a previous home as well as a lake house — both turnkey projects where Woods was entrusted to pick surface materials, furnishings, and art.
Then there is the designer’s ability as a house and client whisperer. “I’m very intuitive and have great spatial imagination. I can move walls, raise ceilings, and change paint colors in my head,” says Woods, who before founding Birmingham-based Patti Woods Interiors in 2008 was a graphic artist, albeit one who “had had all these ideas about furniture, textiles, and floor plans, but I just didn’t realize where they all pointed.”
