JWI Team

"Aside from the collective talent within this team, what sets us apart and makes us so successful is the mutual respect and admiration we all have for each other.  The balance that we have created with all of our different strengths is unmatchable. Every day we learn from one another and together we grow and inspire which leads to amazing design for our clients" Jacqui

Jacqui Wheeler, Owner and Principal Designer

After 20+ years in Dentistry, Jacqui could not ignore her true passion and natural talent she was born with.  Creating spaces in her spare time for friends and family soon morphed into a career and her true pursuit of happiness. Once the dream was truly realized there was no other way for her but to take a leap of faith and start her own business.  While that is never an easy task, it seemed to fall in place with ease. She quickly developed a large client base through word of mouth and referrals and has in a very short time become one of Charlotte's premier and most sought after designers. 


Faith Penney, Principal Designer

When Faith told her mother she had decided to go to school for design (after debating many other careers), she told her it was the first career path that truly made sense.  As her mom put it, "you have always been a designer!"  Upon graduating from the International Academy of Design and Technology with a BA in Interior Design, she worked within the industry in many different aspects.  "What I've learned in the last 15 years at jobs varying from custom homebuilding, visual merchandising and furniture sales has added so much to my skill set, and prepared me for my dream job which I landed when I met Jacqui." -Faith
