Some designers go through years of training to learn their craft and others, like Emily Winters, are simply
born with the instinct to design. One of Emily’s earliest memories is sitting on her mother’s lap
studying Better Homes & Gardens. Her fascination with what she saw on the pages of the magazine
translated into drawings of boats and lighthouses where she would create individual rooms complete
with furniture, wall treatments and lighting. Not typical for most six-year olds.
Emily began her career working at several design firms in the Midwest and Arizona. Landing at
Peabody’s in 2006, she immediately made an impact with her ability to use color and texture to create
warm, inviting spaces with maximum attention to every detail. Her impeccable work has been
recognized by the ASID with four silver awards for her residential designs.
Emily shares her philosophy on what makes her client relationships a success: “My job is not to
impose my taste and design style, but to create the perfect setting for my client’s everyday life. The best
designs happen when we collaborate together.
