Award-winning local interior designer Dawn. D. Totty of Dawn D. Totty Designs was featured in the Spring 2018 issue of the nationally recognized magazine, American Farmhouse Style.   

Ms. Totty moved from Chattanooga one year ago to nearby Jasper, into a new mountaintop community known as Jasper Highlands. It was there that she decided to to build and design a modern farmhouse.  

Since 2010, Ms. Totty has built a following and appeal. Her custom-designed residential and commercial spaces are both functional and aesthetically pleasing, said officials. In 2014, she was the recipient of the Best of Houzz Award and has maintained that status for the last four consecutive years in both service and design. Her designs have also captured both local and national attention of the media and have been featured in many publications such as City Scope, Nashville Interiors, Vogue, Chatter Magazine and many others. Ms. Totty designs nationally as well as designing online with her clients from all over the globe .  

Ms. Totty predicts that her contemporary farmhouse is a reflection of what is currently trending in 2018 and for many years to come. She believes that fads have a very temporary shelf life, but trends usually have the potential to last 10 or 20 years.   

Ms. Totty will be featured as the lead designer in the first annual high end home decor show, Fine Interiors Chattanooga. The interior design exhibition will be at the Chattanooga Convention Center Sept. 27-30, and will showcase interior design trends, decor, fine furniture, objet d’art, architecture and fine living.
