About the Author
Growing up in the Deep South, Leah Richardson was raised in a family that taught her to appreciate good design and encouraged her to develop her own personal style. Whether it was furniture, art, the written word or a beautifully appointed dinner table, Leah learned the value of “all things excellent.” She received a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Georgia and a B.A. in Interior Design from the American College for the Applied Arts in Atlanta, Georgia. Leah’s designs encompass well-functioning, spacious rooms; calm, neutral palettes; an abundance of natural light; and a “whole-house/whole-life” point of view.
Leah is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). Her work has been published in various magazines, such as Traditional Home and Birmingham Magazine. She lectures widely with Leah Richardson Ministries and she designs bookmarks, greeting cards and other specialty products for her line jc&me Designs. She lives with her husband, Jim, in a small farm in Deland, Florida. Colleen Duffley is versatile photographer whose portfolio includes lifestyle, fashion, food and of course, interiors. She has shot countless magazine covers and has a great eye for light and detail.
