Janet Clifton

Janet Clifton is an Interior Designer working with Defining Home Design Group.  She holds a degree in Interior Design from the University of Georgia and spent many years working in Atlanta before relocating to Birmingham five years ago.  Janet begins her projects by meeting with clients in their home to get both a sense of the space and the client’s personal style. After determining the overall color palate and aesthetic, Janet focuses on the larger pieces first to help define the space.  Since items such as art, rugs and accessories are personal to each individual client she works with, Janet selects these items carefully to ensure comfortable, livable and edited design. While she enjoys the entire process, Janet particularly enjoys creating the schematics and choosing fabrics and finishes for custom pieces.  One of Janet’s favorite Defining Home projects was working with a couple who were downsizing after becoming empty nesters.  She worked closely with the clients to blend the couple’s extensive collection of antiques with more modern furnishings.  The result was a beautiful juxtaposition of old and new. Janet enjoys working with Defining Home Design Group because of the company’s resources, collective expertise and carefully curated selection of lighting, art and case goods.  While Janet still works a several projects per year in Atlanta, she also provides design services to Birmingham and surrounding area residents as well as Defining Home customers and clients.
