It didn’t take long upon moving to Atlanta twenty years ago with my family for me to realize how the city genuinely functions as the capital of the Southeast — in terms of culture, sports, and shopping. Because I had always worked in design, notably in Indianapolis, from which my husband, John Morris, and our daughter, Alexandra, had come those many years ago, I recognized that Atlanta would be the right place for me to focus on high-end residential work. One of its defining and fascinating features is that Atlanta manages to function as a major city interspersed with some of the most beautiful residential neighborhoods in America.
That dynamic shouldn’t be surprising since I think one of the things that distinguishes the South from other regions in the country is that people here truly love and respect their homes. As a result, there is an enormous appreciation for, and understanding of, architects and designers. This pervasive respect for aesthetics makes Atlanta an especially rewarding city in which to work as an interior designer.
