“Great design is a result of a very close homeowner and designer relationship. It is all about bringing the homeowner’s wants and desires to life in a perfectly blended way. It should never look purchased, but rather collected with great thought”, says Mills, owner of Harmonious Living. “I love that moment when a client walks into their home and realizes that it is a personification of them, that is a winning project.”
Since forming Harmonious Living in 1999, Tish Mills has become known for creating highly peaceful spaces that are a true reflection of the homeowner’s personality and the way that they live. As one client put it, “You know a Tish Mills’ design because of the exhale when you walk into a room. Regardless of whether it is a traditional design or contemporary space, they are always very comfortable and peaceful.” Tish uses a mix of color and materials from the surroundings to create balanced spaces that are seamless from interior to exterior. Project results have been recognized numerous times within the design industry. Tish Mills has received 16 design excellence awards from the Georgia Chapter of the ASID; one project winning three national ASID awards. Her work has been featured in magazines such as Elle Décor, Traditional Homes, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and Atlanta Magazine as well as several books on interior design.
While the Harmonious Living’s traditional focus is on residential projects throughout the Southeast, there are also a growing number of projects on the West Coast. Tish also has completed projects in China and Africa, creating an international presence for her firm.
Tish Mills is a graduate of the University of Georgia and studied Feng Shui at the American Feng Shui Institute. She is an active member of the American Society of Interior Designers.
