A long-standing favorite of the Southeast corridor, Janie Molster is known for interior design work that defies easy categorization. As a lover of the old, an interpreter of the new, combined with her deft hand at creating a signature mix, Janie’s interiors are both captivating and welcoming. Her broad range of projects are frequently featured in design platforms, including House Beautiful, Veranda, Traditional Home, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. In 2021 Janie was selected as a finalist in The Southeastern Designer of the Year, sponsored by Veranda and ADAC. Janie Molster Designs was also showcased in the 2022 Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Palm Beach. And in the last consecutive three years, Janie has been a finalist in the prestigious Andrew Martin Awards as one of the top 100 designers in the world. Janie’s successful first monograph, House Dressing: Interiors for Colorful Living, made its debut in September 2021 and is in its 3rd printing.
As a mother of five, Janie understands that good design must be intertwined with comfort and functional practicality. “I like to think my rooms inspire Southern graciousness, whatever the region. Inviting rooms should look like they've evolved naturally over time," she says, capturing her design sensibility. "I'm not guided by genre, period, or pedigree. I am guided by good.”
Ever visit a house that creates such a feeling of welcome and personality that you leave feeling as if you have an intimate connection with the homeowner? With a decidedly Southern perspective, Janie Molster will share her distinctive design philosophy and take you through a master class on creating highly personalized rooms that are visually compelling, sublimely layered, and ultimately embrace visitors with welcoming comfort. A lover of mixing the backstory of antiques with an au courant edge, Molster believes the best rooms combine a contextual rub that melds a modern lifestyle with an old soul.
