Episode 464: Lee Ann Thornton


Lee Ann Thornton and her design aesthetic was informed by having grown up living in New York City, Connecticut and Los Angeles.  She seamlessly has merged the influences of one coast to the other in her original, trademark style.  Her design firm was launched in Greenwich, Connecticut in 2003, and specializes in both high-end residential and commercial projects.


Lee Ann’s signature interpretative style is both warm and luxurious, while capturing the fine details and personal lifestyle of each client. Lee Ann finds inspiration in the colors and comfort of classic design and enjoys updating this aesthetic to suit contemporary individuals and families. She is known for balancing style and comfort, and firmly believes elegance and practicality can be combined for today’s family living. Beautiful fabrics, inviting palettes, and colorations combined with original and graceful furniture are hallmarks of Lee Ann Thornton Interiors. Lee Ann’s wit and charm inspire the look of her interiors; nuanced in a lively, often playful yet classically styled tradition.

Her firm is enlisted in a wide array of services that include both full-scale projects and design collaboration, in addition to oversight of construction with the architect, contractors and clients. Her exquisite design sensibility can be seen in homes from Greenwich, New York City, Hamptons, Los Angeles, Florida, Rhode Island and Nantucket.

Her work has been prominently featured in many articles and publications, most recently House Beautiful and Coastal Living.  Lee Ann Thornton Interiors was awarded Connecticut Cottages and Garden 2015 Innovation in Design Award for Interior Design and At Home 2016 A List Awards for Interior Design.
