Each one bigger and better than before—that’s how interior designer Moyanne Harding describes each of her four retail shops, the first of which she opened in 1994, just three years after establishing her design business, Interiors by Moyanne. A fifth location, The Downtown Design Center in Lynchburg, opens this month.
Harding graduated from Randolph Macon Women’s College in 1987 with a degree in studio art and design before qualifying as a member of the Interior Design Society. For her, she says, “It’s all about adding the finishing touches to a master plan and specific layers of style to make it a fabulous project.”
“I like to do it all—from construction and remodeling to placing soap in the soap dishes.” We asked Harding what she’s been interested in lately and what she’s working on next.
