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.

Interior Wisdom: Designing Your Home and Heart for the Lord (Bright Sky Press, May 2009) by Leah Richardson, is a beautiful creative metaphor comparing the step-by-step Interior Design process for our earthly house, and the Lord's design process for our spiritual house.
Leah believes that the best-planned homes adapt to the ebb and flow of life. Life is not static, she says, it is constantly changing. She adapts the changes and challenges in her life through her strong faith in Christ. She believes that just like a room that is out of scale, unbalanced and has no emphasis or focus, our life and heart can be redesigned to create a life full of meaning and purpose by developing a personal relationship with Jesus.
From foundation to finishing details, Leah Richardson walks the reader through the design process giving her design ideas, practical applications of design principles, and greater insight into creating a beautiful functional environment in which to raise a family and entertain friends.
