Josie Long, a native of Richmond Virginia made Smith Mountain Lake her permanent residence when she purchased the business in 2018.
She believes good design should excite the eye as soon as you walk in and tell a story through every detail within the space. She prefers to think outside the box when creating environments for her clients that embraces and inspires them.
She loves mixing old with new- antiques can bring visual interest, warmth, and legacy into a setting. The center of her design approach is form and function which she believes is key to good design.
