Missy Youngblood Furniture Store in Venice, FL | Venice Living Furniture & Interiors

Missi Youngblood, Lead Design Consultant

“My greatest compliment is that a person feels at home and comfortable in the rooms I design. Starting with a thorough analysis and discussion — examining lifestyles, desires, and needs in detail — I listen to my clients before any project is started. At Venice Living Furniture & Interiors, what you get is what you’ve always dreamed of having!”

Meet Missi
Helping her father renovate homes for resale and investment while growing up, Missi Youngblood developed a passion for design. Realizing that professional success hinged on education, she studied interior design, received her degree from Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia, and was hired as a commercial designer with a turn-key Atlanta firm upon graduation. After a few successful career-building years in Atlanta and South Carolina, she relocated to Florida and joined the team at Venice Living. From 2002 through 2009, she owned The Dream Home Coach in historic Old Englewood Village.

Serving clients from Sarasota to Boca Grande, including the Keys, she worked with developers and builders as well as individual homeowners and investors. In 2009, she returned to her home state of South Carolina and continued her design work from the South Carolina coast to the North Carolina mountains until her recent return to Venice. Her work has been recognized by Sarasota Magazine, SRQ Magazine and South Carolina Home & Gardens Magazine. Missi is a member of the Interior Design Society (IDS) and has won numerous awards in international design competitions.
