A New Jersey native with strong southern roots, Deborah Leamann has always been attuned to a well-appointed home. “Rooms you Love to Live in” has been her signature statement since she launched her Pennington  design studio in 1989. Deborah, is an award winning interior designer, an alumni of the New York School of Interior Design and an allied member of ASID, her classic design sensibilities have established her as one of the area’s leading interior designers.

Described as a ”true-traditionalist,” Deborah Leamann delivers her fresh perspective on “old school” design in all of her work. Deborah offers distinctly classic taste in a modern form along with chic sophistication to residential interior design. Characterized by polished rooms that incorporate charming detail with an engaging play on color and pattern, Deborah’s signature style is immediately evident. “Having a strong connection to my client is what inspires my work. Whether working on new construction, a complete renovation, or freshening up an interior, helping home owners transform their lives through quality design is our primary goal.

Sarah Emily Gilbert of Urban Agenda Magazine writes,“ Deborah’s success comes from her ability to put her own heart and soul into every project. And just like her classic taste, an authentic designer never goes out of style.”
