Wendi S. Mannix, BA, IDS
Wendi is a Best of Houzz 2014, 2015 and 2016 award-winning interior designer who specializes in high-end residential interiors.
Wendi has a B.A. in Art History from Wellesley College, the number four liberal arts college in the U.S. with one of the country’s leading art history programs. She also concurrently completed 25% of the course requirements for an M.B.A. at the Sloan School of Management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Wendi is a Professional Member of the Interior Design Society (IDS).
Her lifelong passion for design began when she was just five years old, when she spent endless hours drawing floor plans on newspaper print, rearranging her room, and turning cardboard Coca-Cola 6-packs into houses.
While studying Art History at Wellesley, Wendi discovered a significant new theory in the field of classical architecture and her original research was cited in a book entitled The Language of the Muses: The Dialogue Between Roman and Greek Sculpture, written by Miranda Marvin, Ph.D., Harvard University, and published by the J. Paul Getty Museum.
She loves to travel, cook and host wine tastings. And of course, to design (and to her husband’s dismay, constantly redesign!) her home. Wendi also discovered passions for photography and the Italian language in college, and is conversational in Italian, having attended the Domus Aurea Italian Language School in Rome, Italy.
She also loves to visit her extended family in Maine, spending time with her husband and soul mate Jack, who owns a management consulting firm, her daughter Kayli, who works for the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), a non-profit organization in Washington, D.C., and her twin kittens, Gabrielle and Danielle, who she recently rescued from the Miami Humane Society.
