Leslie Lewart

Although my original training was in counseling, it soon became apparent to me that I had a strong pull to rearrange furniture and experiment with color! In fact, that's all I really wanted to do. And so, for more than 20 years, I have been designing, decorating and creating beautiful spaces.  I opened Rugs to Riches in 1992, a unique home furnishings and design boutique in Ellicott City Maryland. After closing the store in 2005, I continued offering private design services for my clients.

Post Rugs to Riches, I also designed and opened The Well, a community space for yoga and the healing arts in Ellicott City, Md.. I have experience in many settings such as private homes, real estate staging, restaurants as well as new construction and renovation projects some times known as flipping. My designs have appeared in numerous magazines, newspaper and television.

As a result of my many and varied experiences in the world of interiors, I have come away with the simple understanding that harmonic and beautiful spaces can bring us an enormous sense of well-being. I invite you to join me on this journey to create sanctuary in your own homes. Often, this can be accomplished with the smallest of budgets.....
