Erika Ward began her career as an accountant managing multi-million dollar construction budgets for an internationally known design-build firm. This background fostered a client-focused perspective that translated from the commercial sector to residential design projects. The interests of both type of clients is the same; quality products and workmanship as well as accountability when it comes to spending their money. In 2006, while still working in the corporate world, Erika founded Erika Ward Interiors and is the principal designer of the firm.
With a degree in Finance and coursework in both Real Estate and Interior Design, Erika brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to her client projects. As an extension of her design business, Erika also works closely with many retail brands such as Home Depot, Home Decorators Collection and Big Lots as a spokesperson and brand ambassador in targeted consumer campaigns.
Her work has been featured in numerous local and national publications and the Atlanta Tribune has awarded her for having one of the top design firms for two consecutive years. We spent time with Erika when she was chosen as a Style Spotter for High Point Market Authority in 2016. We caught up with her recently to ask her for her top picks from the fall new introductions.
