About

Wendy Glaister

Wendy Glaister, Principal

From childhood, Wendy was taught to use an artist’s eye for beauty, composition, color, and scale. She brings a discerning eye to each project, fusing practicality and playfulness, translating her client’s personality and tastes with graceful function and ease, and carefully selecting the moments in each space that will make the room and lend cohesion to the home. Her collaborative approach with contractors and craftspeople encourages each member of the team to bring their very best. Her gift is something special, intuitive and kind, that her clients affirm, and her work proves undeniable.

Whether you like contemporary, modern farmhouse or french country, the joy of my work as a designer is to put together your perfect space no matter your style. My design process is fueled by collaboration with clients. Understanding your “must have” list, what you value, and how your interests impact your home provides the foundation from which to turn your house into a truly spectacular home.
