Cassie Howell

Interior Designer

Becoming an Interior Designer was a natural evolution of my career path and culmination of many interests. I have always been an avid student of art, architecture, history and the environment around me. After studying Studio Art and Art History at Wake Forest University, I spent several years in the corporate world, working across multiple industries in sales, project management and event planning. A shift into Interior Design was the perfect fit for me to incorporate my creative sensibilities and artistic background along with my professional history of developing strong relationships with clients. For me, the collaboration with clients – in both residential and commercial design - is essential to the process. Because interior spaces affect how our daily lives are experienced, understanding clients’ needs lays the foundation which allows a designer to problem solve, bring aesthetic cohesion and creatively elevate an existing space. Seeing that transformation from beginning to end is a rewarding process.
