WELCOME TO SYNTHA HARRIS INTERIORS

As a full-service design firm in Northern Virginia, Syntha Harris Interiors is known for creating deeply personal, elegant and functional spaces, while pushing the creative boundaries and achieving uncompromised aesthetic.

Fashion Meets Interior Design

The visionary and the creative force behind the boutique firm is Syntha Harris. For over two decades Syntha worked as a runway and print model in the fashion industry. Surrounded by style icons and influential members of the industry, Syntha had the unique opportunity to be a part of the creative process and behind-the-scenes in making fashion. Her accomplished career in fashion has made a significant impact on Syntha as an interior designer with a trained eye for all things style and a meticulous attention to detail.

FROM CHILDREN’S ROOMS TO COMPLETE HOMES

She cultivated her passion for design during her time working for numerous European and American fashion houses. Realizing her passion for designing living spaces, she pursued her education in interior design at Marymount University and founded her design company in 1996, focusing on upscale children’s rooms. As demand for her services grew, she has expanded her expertise to design the entire home – undertaking large scale idea-to-execution design projects.

JE NE SAIS QUOI AND DESIGN APPROACH

Syntha has a certain je ne sais quoi when it comes to designing homes. To her, design is deeply personal. It is rooted in the clients’ personal tastes, needs, desires and ambitions. While her clients have a vision, Syntha delicately and creatively helps to articulate and translate that narrative into a physical space – blending elegance, function and efficiency together – creating an emotional connection between people and homes. Well versed in all design styles from traditional to contemporary, to Mediterranean and craftsman, Syntha’s work is grounded in incorporating modern elements like mixed metals, faux leather, and texture into timeless design principles. Fashion, art and travel each play an important role in the innovative interiors Syntha creates.

FEATURES IN NATIONAL AND INDUSTRY PUBLICATIONS

In recognition of her talent, Syntha was honored as the winner of the Casa Fiora International Design Competition. Her work has also appeared in industry publications like Home and Design Magazine, DC Modern Luxury, Bethesda Magazine, Washington Post, Northern Virginia Magazine, and Washingtonian.
