Courtney Johnston

Principal, Corporate Interiors, Dallas

Courtney grew up in a family with both design and academic backgrounds: her mother was an interior designer and her father a university professor in architecture. From a young age, this access to art and creativity allowed her to be curious and encouraged a passion for applied and visual arts.

Courtney holds the practice of interior design in high esteem, believing that it’s the most humanistic of the design disciplines and a perfect complement to architecture. She truly believes in the strength of a diverse team that brings complementing viewpoints to a project to make the outcome better than expected. She is fueled by the desire to create memorable work and provide thoughtful solutions to complex challenges.

In her free time, Courtney extends her work experience into volunteer opportunities with the American Heart Association, the PTA organizations of her three daughters’ schools, and her neighborhood association.

“My architect father would always say ‘work from the overall to the small.’ I think that has helped me to keep the big picture perspective and look to the future, tackling strategic actions and processes.”
