Theresa Ory

Hi. I'm Theresa. Loving wife to an amazing husband and mother to three precious littles. I am fueled by connecting with my people, great design, delicious food, traveling adventures, and the Sun. I believe great design is the creation of your experience. Considering fundamental details such as how you move through a space, where the light sources fall, and your impact upon entry, to name a few, are the foundation of my process. While the spaces I create are highly customized, they are not pretentious or fussy. My projects have been described as organic meets tailored, relaxed yet refined, curated with detail and fervor.
You may have seen my work featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, shared on, and In 2021 I was honored to be named a recipient of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Bath of the Year award. I was grateful and humbled yet again to be awarded the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Kitchen of the Year award for 2022.

Let's get started!

My family and I have lived in our home for over 15 years. I have been wanting to update several rooms for years but didn’t even know where to start. I had previously reached out to other designers but received very little response or interest. I saw Theresa’s post online detailing her services and decided to contact her on a whim. It was the best decision of 2019! Theresa called me within a few hours and we had an appointment within a few days. I am a total newbie to working with a designer of any kind - and do NOT have an artist eye myself. Through conversations with Theresa (and sharing of my many Pinterest boards), she was able to not only capture my “vision” - she enhanced it! Theresa was able to create my perfect living space, paying equal attention to all details big and small. Placement, color, shape, aesthetic and functionality were part of every decision that was made. What started out as remodeling my office turned into essentially redoing my entire first and second floor, including painting, floors, completely redoing my master bath, extending my existing closet into the closet of my dreams, several kitchen updates, new front door and redoing upstairs bathrooms. None of that includes handpicking all new furniture and accessories. Theresa not only did the designs, she also managed the contractor crew (due to some crazy circumstances, she went WAY above and beyond). It was a three month project with plenty of things that went smooth - and a few unexpected hiccups (I now know what custom glass shower panels shattering sound like!). BUT throughout it all, Theresa was calm, cool and collected. She was a pro and made sure I was comfortable and getting the house I had wanted for so long. I cannot say enough great things about my experience working with Theresa. She and her services are worth every penny. I love my house and am already starting to plan the next project (basement!).
