Liven Up Your Home with Unique Interior Designs: An Interview with Glenda Wann of Glenda Wann Interiors

By Glenda Wann

Tell us a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

Glenda Wann Interiors was founded in Jacksonville in 1979, after working ten years for other design firms in Atlanta, Ga, Ft. Lauderdale, Fl., Mobile, Alabama, and Jacksonville. I grew up in Atlanta and attended Georgia State College. I love the fact of having experience in these different markets.

For 25 years I worked in new construction doing interior finish selections for a custom home builder. I worked with all his home buyers, did selections for his spec homes, and model home merchandising. Along the way we won many awards in the annual Parade of Homes, and took three top awards in Jacksonville's only Street of Dreams. You might say working with architects on plans, specifying interior finishes, and the new construction industry is "in my blood". I love it!

What is one of your favorite things to tell your clients about interior design that they are most interested about?

Good interior design is finding creative solutions to client's design problems. It's about buying the best quality you can reasonably afford, blending styles & colors, balancing scale of rooms and furnishings, enhancing best features in a home, adequate to pleasing lighting, and most of all comfort!

What are the most common misconceptions people have about interior design?

We have people who call to inquire about how we charge. Some will say "That's too expensive" or don't call back to schedule an appointment. I am perplexed by that....here they are about to spend thousands of dollars and they can't see the value of spending a couple hours with a designer to get valuable help before beginning a project. Since we are immersed in this business all day, every day, we can come up with suggestions you would never think of. We know the latest products on the market to fit your needs, we have valuable resources not found in your big box stores, and we can offer creative solutions to your most puzzling challenges. Our services are a wise investment in your next project.

What is the biggest advantage homeowners get when working with a professional interior designer?

ASID, the American Society of Interior Designers, is the leading professional organization for interior designers. When you hire an ASID member, you get an experienced practitioner that can solve problems, help you avoid costly mistakes, and most importantly, create an attractive, affordable space designed specifically for you.

What is the most common room that people want to redecorate/redesign?

Kitchens & baths are by far the most often remodeled rooms in a home, and offer the biggest return on investment when you're ready to sell.

What's the best way for people to contact your company?
