After graduating in 1969 from the first class of VCU, I worked as a set designer for Alderman Studios in High Point, NC. I joined the staff of W and J Sloane in Washington, DC in 1971. In 1982 I founded Horne International Designs Inc. in Bethesda, Maryland. My firm completed installations in the Mid East, and Lebanon, England, Morocco, and throughout the United States. Our design work, as well as work with historic preservation, was published in Architectural Digest, Veranda, House Beautiful, Colonial Homes and Andrew Martin’s Review. Currently I am the owner and manager of a luxury B and B and extensive gardens I restored and designed in my hometown, Laurinburg, N.C.
