Janie Molster

Janie Molster believes great design should delight, inspire, and embrace her clients. With a portfolio that ranges from family homes to boutique hotels, urban apartments, restaurants, and retail stores; the Richmond, Virginia designer is equally adept at transforming public and private spaces. "When a new client opens the conversation with 'You've never done this before...' I say, 'Bring it!' It's the mix of projects that inspires me."

Traditional Home, Southern Living, and the Wall Street Journal have featured her work. And the Washington Post cited the guest experience embedded in her "stunning redesign" of the tasting room at Early Mountain Vineyards, located north of Charlottesville. That's no accident, says Janie, a North Carolina native. "I like to think my rooms inspire Southern graciousness, whatever the region. Even the most sophisticated designs, when handled thoughtfully, should infuse a space with warmth and personality." Early Mountain visitors clearly felt the warmth: The winery's tasting room was nominated for USAToday's 10 Best Reader's Choice, winning first place in August 2016.
