In 2001, Heather moved to the Durham / Raleigh NC area from New York City, where she had attended Parsons for interior design and honed her skills in NYC under the tutelage of French designer Robert Couturier. The change prompted Heather, who then opened her own firm, to fine-tune an ability to work within a variety of interior styles and settings… from French Modern to Southern Traditional. She has happily developed an accessible, signature style which combines practicality (kids, pets, and red wine are facts of life!) with a variety of sophisticated surface texture – plaster, hide, velvet, linen – and extraordinary lighting. Heather’s belief in organic ornamentation (that nothing made by man is as beautiful as that found in nature) helps define her spaces as living and subtly grounded.
Heather Garrett Interior Design work has been published in Traditional Home, Elle Decor, Food & Wine, Rue, Southern Living, Garden & Gun, and numerous blogs and online publications including The New York Times and A Shaded View On Fashion. Heather was honored to be named to “The Creative Class” by Garden & Gun in 2012, one of Traditional Home’s “New Trad Designers” in 2013, and awarded “Best of Houzz” for three years running, 2012-2014.
