Photo: Libraries don’t always have to be for the gentleman of the home. Wanda designed this room with a softer gender, in mind, as it sits off the dining room and makes for a cozy retreat for reading and a cup of tea.

Photo: Wanda call this the “Glorious Morning Room”. The inspiration for this room began with the paintings from Jan Yearwood, a Charlotte, NC area artist.

About Wanda S. Horton
As may be the case for most creative professionals, Wanda’s interest in interior design began at a young age. She doesn’t believe that her room ever appeared the same, and thankfully, her mother enjoyed seeing how Wanda could reinvent the wheel, “as she also took me along on antiquing treks for the next find for our home”.
Even though Wanda began her college career in the field of community health, she still yearned to participate in a different way of making ones environment more livable, and thus allowing for a harmonious state of being. Wanda promptly changed her degree to Interior Design and has never looked back. For almost 30 years, she has been sharing her mantra, “Experience the best about design”, as she believes that’s obtainable, whether you live in a cottage or a castle.
Wanda’s favorite projects are those which allow her to collaborate with the homeowner, infusing their style preferences into their spaces, while allowing for her guiding hand to help the project come to completion. “I bring, with me, a bevy of resources and people, with whom I’ve had great experiences and relationships. By allowing me to do what I do best, the client receives the benefit of an enjoyable and beautiful project, with the assurance that we’ll be there to see it through.”
