Lee Anne Henry of Whiteline Designs blends transitional tastes with a modern tendency for a look that gives homeowners a fresh start
Lee Anne Henry has been doing design work for 15 years, and she founded her business, Whiteline Designs, in 2011. While her career has spanned numerous projects in creative business, she says that design “picked her.” “I was helping people with small things that grew into bigger projects, and then I went on to work as a design coordinator for a developer and a designer for a furniture company before eventually starting my own company.”
Lee Anne believes her authenticity makes her unique as a designer. She notes that she also puts a focus on plans and details at the start of a project, saving clients valuable time and money by minimizing changes during the construction process.
As a creative, she notes that it is difficult to pinpoint her style, but feels her taste is transitional with a modern tendency. “I love clean lines and modern pieces mixed with the unexpected traditional element or a very contemporary piece,” she says. “Because I do mostly new construction, my clients are looking for a clean and simple look these days. It is a point in which they can purge the old, and they are ready to do just that. We usually incorporate a few of their older pieces in with the new and accessories from travels to give it that personal touch.”
