A FELLOW CREATIVE FEMALE
If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know that I love learning from fellow creative female entrepreneurs (and gents, too), by interviewing them on everything from the specific steps they’ve taken to become the success that they are, to how they like to spend a night at home. I’ve coined the series “Style Profile,” and today I’m thrilled to share my interview with NYC-based interior designer Jenny Wolf.
AN ORGANIC APPROACH TO DESIGN
Ms. Wolf’s 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 of New York around her, Jenny works to weave personalities with possessions, creating individualized interiors that suit her clients’ personal style and desires.
AT A VERY YOUNG AGE
Jenny’s appreciation for design began at a very early age. Growing up in the culturally eclectic city of New Orleans and on the coast of South Carolina to a family of furniture retailers, she developed a love of home furnishings, antiques, and all things beautiful. Upon graduating college, Jenny moved to NYC where she worked in retail development at Ralph Lauren. There she managed visual merchandising and shop installations for RL women’s shops at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, and specialty stores around the country. After five years at Ralph Lauren, Jenny left to attend Parsons where she earned a degree in Interior Design, concentrating on architecture, lighting, furniture, color, and interior layouts. Jenny opened her own firm in early 2011, and the rest is history.
