Janie believes good design should delight, inspire and embrace her clients. With a portfolio that ranges from family homes to boutique hotels, urban apartments, restaurants, and retail stores, the Richmond, Virginia designer is equally adept at transforming public and private spaces. Her 25+ years as a design principal and her diverse portfolio of acclaimed projects has established her firm as one of the Southeast’s design leaders. House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Southern Living, Coastal Living, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal have featured her work. “I like to think my rooms inspire Southern graciousness, whatever the region. Even the most sophisticated designs, when handled thoughtfully, should infuse a space with warmth and personality.”
“Highly edited and very sparsely furnished rooms can surely appeal to our decluttering sensibilities, but in our topsy-turvy world I see a movement toward developing interiors that will give a sense of warmth and comfort. We recently installed a room and the client said, ‘when I walk in this room I feel like it is giving me a big hug’. That’s what we are hearing and those are the environments we are creating for our clients.”
Tailored and inviting, the Global Views Cade daybed encourages lounging in a ladylike way. Lovely in front of a window, it would also be fabulous at the foot of a bed or as a room divider between different seatings areas in a large living room.
