Design Question?



Winnie Johnson

After getting my degree in interior design, I interned at Marshall Fields, partnered with an independent designer, then found my way to Walter E. Smithe. It’s been a great fit. I love being able to help my clients create a space that best reflects their design aesthetic and needs. My experience and background enable me to assist in all aspects of design, from space planning, to coordinating colors and fabrics, to suggesting pieces that offer the best fit for comfort and function. However, the process is a collaborative effort requiring open communication, trust, and often compromise. Being prepared with room dimensions, having fabric and color swatches and a clear budget will help me make your dream a reality. If you need more assistance, I can come to your home to take measurements and pictures so we can verify that we are making the right decision. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many amazing people through the years and look forward to working with you. Please call or e-mail for an appointment so we can get started!
