Q&A: Interior Designer Jacqueline Wood Wheeler




CHRIS EDWARDS

Jacqueline Wheeler Interiors
1918 Lennox Ave.
704-677-4928

Years in business: 4 years

Hometown: Charlotte


Charlotte Home + Garden: Favorite color to wear? 

Jacqueline Wood Wheeler: Black, much to my mother’s chagrin.

 

CHG: Favorite color to design with? 

JWW: Blues (navy, especially) and fuchsia. Can I have two?

 

CHG: When did you know you wanted to be an interior designer? 

JWW: I have loved design for as long as I can remember, and decorated for friends and family forever, but I worked in the dental field for 24 years before I finally decided to try and make a career of it. I love it so much. I have no doubt I was created to do this. 

 

CHG: Favorite recent design trend? 

JWW: Wallpaper!

 

CHG: Design trend you wish never happened? 

JWW: Microsuede sofas with built in recliners. Oh, and jabots.

 

CHG: Favorite national interior designer? 

JWW: I like Emily Henderson because she uses a lot of color in her designs.

 

CHG: Another local designer you admire? 

JWW: I think Charlotte Lucas has great style.

 

CHG: Best career advice you’ve been given? 

JWW: Don’t be afraid to say no to a job that you know isn’t for you.

 

CHG: Best place to find inspiration? 

JWW: I find my inspiration in nature. I used to make color combinations from pictures of birds; I made Pinterest boards of them so I could refer back to them. They are so amazing!

 

CHG: Three words that describe when clients see their completed home?

JWW: We never stay for the reveal, but every single text we get after they see it starts with OMG. I cry every time. My husband says I have the only job where your client crying is a good thing.
