Meet The Design Team
Based in Louisiana, Connie Howard is the founder and lead interior designer at Woodvale Interiors. She holds both the Bachelor and the Master of Fine Arts Degree in Interior Design with a specialty in Historic Preservation. She has had a private practice in interior design for over 20 years. Connie works with both residential and commercial clients across the country. In 2005, she was selected to design the interiors for Southern Living Magazine’s Idea House at Squire Creek Country Club in Choudrant, Louisiana.
While she enjoys both residential and commercial work equally, she has a soft spot for home interiors because she believes no place is as important as the home. She also believes that everyone benefits when the home is a place of beauty and serenity. After years of helping her private clients achieve their decorative dreams, Connie wanted to find a way to share her experience and knowledge of decorative sourcing with everyone. In 2013, she and her daughter Mary Katherine started to develop this shared passion and LivLuxe began to take shape. Their goal with the LivLuxe online collection is two-fold. First, they want to give the visitor the chance to shop a professionally curated collection of home interior pieces and accessories. Secondly, when needed, they hope to furnish design expertise to LivLuxe clients in such a way that the client experiences the pleasure of custom detailing tailored specifically to them. For Connie, LivLuxe is a way to share her love of beautiful things.

Mary Katherine Russell grew up around her mother Connie’s interior design business. Early memories center around installing projects and organizing fabric samples. After graduating from Louisiana State University with a degree in public relations, Mary Katherine went to work for Southern Living Magazine’s home interiors and product division, Southern Living at Home, in Birmingham, Alabama, where she continued to closely follow interior design news and trends. Whenever she had a break from the magazine world, Mary Katherine would travel with her mom to national and global interior markets. Today, she works side-by-side with Connie as they curate the LivLuxe collection, making exclusive design accessible to everyone online.
