Heather Bates - Northern Virginia's top interior designer

I’m Heather Bates, an award winning Interior Designer, Allied ASID , Member of NKBA and NVBIA happily serving clients in since 2008.  I like to design in full, glorious color! 

As an outgoing, detail-oriented, and innovative Interior Designer, I help update the homes of couples and singles who are transitioning to a new, exciting, stage of life.  

After consulting with them about their needs and wants, I create a design plan, a project timeline, and put together all the details they need to get their ideal home.  A home that they will be able to create new experience in with their family and friends. 

The bests part of my job is seeing the smiles on my clients faces.


Areas served by my Chantily, Virginia Design Studio: 

Ashburn, Great Falls, Vienna, Leesburg, Aldie, Middleburg, Lansdowne, Purcellville, Marshal, The Plains and Bluemont.

I will travel to help clients who reside outside of Virginia.



My family has a long line of service to the military, so our home and the homes of my aunts and uncles were filled with treasures from all over the world. And we moved around a lot, so I still have pieces that are important to me from their travels. Because I was surrounded by this and aware of design from a very young age, I realized the best design is a timeless merging of fabrics, furniture, great art, and color – plus life experiences.

My family, Cockalier Pups, travel, and wine keep me happy, as do my best clients! On vacations, if there is a 3000+ puzzle around, you might find me working on that. I’m a whiz at finding the exact piece needed very quickly.
