Known for her elegant and timeless interiors - each with an element of surprise - interior designer Teri Thomas marries a unique blend of artisan-quality furnishings, art, periods and styles for effortlessly tailored spaces. “I love to combine the unexpected in textures, finishes and custom-designed pieces for a layered, cohesive design,” she says. “I believe in a well-edited mix that strikes a balance between comfort and luxury.”

Over the course of her career, which spans more than three decades, Teri has designed offices and homes – whether elegant abode, mountain retreat or beach cottage – throughout the U.S., from New York to Nantucket, Sea Island to the North Carolina mountains, and Charlotte to Sun Valley.
