Our Design Center

Home, Heart & Soul officially opened in 2016 when we noticed the potential of a historic landmark home in Cornelius, North Carolina. It evolved into a home décor & gift shop and became a welcoming home base for our design & renovation services.

Bailey’s Glen Active Adult Community chose us as their preferred design vendor and Lake Norman Currents readers voted us the Best Home Décor Boutique in 2018 and 2023.

We transitioned away from retail at the end of 2023 and are excited to focus on appointment-only boutique design services in 2024 and beyond.

  • 40 Years of Design Experience

  • Thousands of Happy

Meet Our Founder & Designer

Hi there, I’m Lori Savio! I’ve been transforming homes (and lives) through interior design since 1983.  

I started my own business when I was 25 and never looked back. I’ve always had an eye for balance and color, but clients love that I create an emotional connection from the moment we meet. This connection helps me intuitively design spaces that match their vision, and everything I do in someone’s home has a specific intention. I received a Top Woman in Business Award from Business Today in 2017 and was recognized as Lake Wylie’s Best Interior Decorator four years in a row.

On the personal front, good came from tragedy when life tested me with an unexpected loss. I realized I could either wallow in grief or rise above it, and I’m grateful for ongoing growth. I’m a foodie and self-care fanatic who loves being active outdoors. When I’m not at the design center, there’s a good chance you’ll find me walking the greenway with my dog or spending quality time with my grown son.
