Interview with Jenny Wolf of Jenny Wolf Interiors

Welcome to a brand new series of Designer Spotlights, focusing on the group of top designers who will bring to life the Diamonds of Design Vignette Exhibition at AmericasMart beginning in January 2017. In celebration of AmericasMart’s sixtieth anniversary, this select group of designers will bring to life their most inspiring design moments, eras and lifestyles of the last 60 years using their favorite finds from the market. The next one of our designers to be featured is…Jenny Wolf! Her organic approach to design emphasizes the simple and often overlooked notion that a home should reflect the sensibilities of the people living in it, showcasing the things they love and have collected over time. Drawing inspiration from her Southern roots, travels and the vibrant city around her, Jenny works to weave personalities with possessions, creating individualized interiors that suit her client’s personal style and desires. REstyleSOURCE recently chatted with this talented designers, in a brief Q&A which will not only give our readers some background on their design philosophy, but also what they can expect to see from their Diamonds of Design Vignette at AmericasMart Atlanta in January…

How did you get started in the world of interior design? From a very young age, I always knew that I wanted to be an interior designer.  After a career in fashion, I decided to make this dream a reality.  On a leap of faith, I left my job and went back to school.   I literally graduated, took on my first client and started my business all in a matter of a couple of months.

What inspires your creativity? Fashion, travel…the world around me.

JW5Designer Notes: Inspiration

Diamonds of Design will focus on style standouts of the last 60 years. Which design icon, style or era from the last 60 years particularly inspires you?  I am feeling really inspired by what is happening now in terms of new traditionalism.  I love the new millennial approach to design.  It is fresh, fun and eclectic. Mixing styles in a new and innovative way is a very exciting way approach to design.  There are fewer rules, less rigidity.

What was the inspiration behind your vignette? Which vendors and products did you go with to create this look? I knew I wanted to design a new traditional style dining room because it allowed me to combined all of the aspects I love from each era and decade.

Designer Tips on shopping the market?

“Give yourself a good amount of time to walk the mart, so you don’t miss a thing! It is also very helpful to map out the showrooms that you want to visit in advance.”
