Wall decor is usually not a priority when decorating a house. Most people focus on the ground up: furniture, counters, shelves and then wall décor. This is an ‘okay approach’ to home decorating but a good interior designer doesn’t neglect the walls and keeps the walls in mind from the very start! One of the […]
What is an Interior Design Concept? An interior design concept is the central theme that all the design elements are focused upon. It exists as an idea first and is brought to reality through careful planning. At its best, an interior design concept is a visual theme that evokes a specific mood by strategically using […]
Our homes are an extension of ourselves – where we create memories, where we host parties, where we celebrate our most important holidays. The way we decorate our home says a lot about who we are. In fact, it’s been proven that home décor and interior design affects our mood and our relationships with family […]
This month, we have a very special treat for you! We sat down with a Winter Park legend, Wolfe-Rizor principal Hattie Wolfe. Back in the 1960’s she owned the Hattie’s clothing stores in Orlando and Winter Park before joining her daughter Abby Rizor to found Wolfe-Rizor Interiors. Q: So, how did you end up as […]
We always enjoy partnering with local builders to create spec homes. If you’re wondering what that is, it’s when a builder buys a piece of land and designs and builds a home without a buyer, then markets the home for sale.

Q: Well, I […]

You know, those things that just make you happy when you see them, that you hope will always be a part of your life. For our long-term clients Betsy and […]
Only two weeks until the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival! The Winter Park Art Festival has always been a huge deal to the Wolfe Family. Growing up here, we always looked so forward to the event. Back in the day they used to have things like custom made leather sandals and funnel cakes, but today it has turned into a nationally acclaimed art event.
Overseas travel informs our design aesthetic here at Wolfe-Rizor, and we love incorporating one-of-a-kind treasures that our clients bring back from their journeys. A bold painting purchased from a street artist in Montmartre, a steel sculpture from an Athens flea market, an embroidered tapestry from Marrakesh… bringing these into the home is a perfect way to remember an amazing trip and to add unique flavor to your environment.
Take a look at interior design photos in magazines, Pinterest, Houzz, and anywhere else you draw inspiration and you’ll notice one thing that pretty much every image has in common: fresh florals.
