Courtney McLeod is the founder and principal of Right Meets Left Interior Design, an award-winning Manhattan-based full-service design studio. An avid colorist at heart, Courtney draws from a kaleidoscopic toolbox of texture, pattern, and color to create rooms evocative of one emotion above all others – joy. She has been featured in print both in the US and abroad – including Luxe Interiors + Design, Veranda, Modern Luxury, and Aspire Design + Home magazines. She is a 2019 High Point Market Style Spotter and included on the 2019 list of emerging designers by Luxe Interiors + Design Magazine. Courtney is an S. Harris brand ambassador. Prior to founding the firm Courtney earned a business degree from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and completed design-related studies at Parsons, Pratt, and NYSID. The name Right Meets Left perfectly reflects her approach to the design process – rooted in the balance of creative design (right brain) and analytical rigor (left brain). The spaces she designs express both her client’s unique tastes and her vivid, collected aesthetic.
“I have always believed your home should be a place to spark joy – recent events have truly reinforced this belief. For 2021, I predict a desire for simple pleasures and joy. In home décor, I see bright, clear, happy colors used in an exuberant way to express one’s unique personality. I also believe the renewed focus on interior design will continue for the foreseeable future – with home renovations ramping up as economic prospects recover.”
