Dear Elizabeth Interiors is a boutique interior design firm creating inspired environments for functional living. Specializing in residential interiors, principal designers Lindsey Harrison and Emily Wertheimer founded Dear Elizabeth Interiors out of a lifelong passion for good design. Their aesthetic blends design from different periods by curating an eclectic assortment of styles, patterns, and textures to achieve a timeless look.
Dear Elizabeth is an ode to their extraordinary mothers, both named Elizabeth, who nurtured their creative impulses since childhood. Guided by that mothering touch, Dear Elizabeth Interiors aims to understand its clients values and tastes so that every home reflects the spirit of its inhabitants.
Lindsey and Emily met as roommates in college. Their friendship was solidified over their shared passion to upgrade their D.C. digs. Queens of the midnight remodel, it was their destiny to start their own interior design studio.
Emily’s interior design acumen is enhanced by her decade-long experience in brand management. A leader in a marketing agency, she managed client relationships and developed creative strategies to transform a brand’s story into a tangible experience.
She now translates her client’s visions, with her editorial eye, into refined environments for intentional living. Emily’s innate ability to tell a story is reflected in the spaces she creates.
Emily further pursued her design career at Parsons School of Design at the New School. She and her husband, Alon, currently split their time between Westport and Miami.
With a BFA in interior design, Lindsey spent more than 10 years leading strategic communications for internationally renowned luxury home and lifestyle brands including Donghia, Liaigre, and Roger Ferris + Partners Architects.
Working alongside these artisans grew Lindsey’s commitment to quality craftsmanship and instilled a deep knowledge of product and materiality. This is reflected in her love for marrying different textures and sourcing product that will become the heirlooms of tomorrow.
She lives in Connecticut with her husband Zachary, daughter Wesleigh, and pup Tucker.
