Introducing

Thrift Studio Designers for 2023

Angeline Guido

Angeline is a native to Dallas, raised in Lake Highlands. Both her parents are home builders/designers; therefore, she grew up running around on job sites and in the design showrooms. Her love affair with all things design started at a very young age and it never stopped, taking her through Interior Design school at Texas Christian University.

Before opening her own business, the previous majority of Angeline’s interior design career was spent in the hospitality industry, designing hotels and restaurants. She always knew she would eventually follow in her parents’ entrepreneurial spirit and start her own company. So in 2014, she made the decision to leave her corporate design position to start her own firm and 6 months later hired her first full-time employee.

Her business has been steadily growing ever since to assemble the amazing and talented team AGD is made of today.

As the main Principal and Owner of the company, Angeline is involved in every aspect of the business from creative to operations. While the firm and book of business has certainly grown over the years, it has always been, and will continue to be, the utmost priority to Angeline that she manages to be a part of the creative process and client experience of every project, giving her team and clients the level of guidance and oversight that her experience brings. AGD is a relationship driven business, ensuring their clients have the best experience, a lot of laughs along the way and that when everything is done they better be invited over for dinner. Angeline will bring the Italian wine! 

Community involvement has always been at the heart of Angeline and her team and she has never shied away from a chance to be involved in something that is doing good.  She and the rest of her team are overjoyed to be a part of Dwell with Dignity and Thrift Studio this year!

Angeline and her husband John, a State Farm agent, live east of Dallas in Heath, TX in the home they built in 2020 together with their two children Smith (7) and Afton (4), and their Border Collie/Blue Heeler mix, Dottie.  You can catch a day in the life with Angeline and her children and the occasional cameo from John (typically against his better wishes) on the AGD Instagram stories.

An international, multi-award-winning interior design professional, Charmaine Wynter specializes in a “laid back luxe” style that is as functional for her residential and hospitality clients as it is beautiful.

Her “superpower” is an innovative use of color and detail to bring to life her design vision. Charmaine believes an expert interior designer marries effective interior design skills with mental and emotional health to create beautiful interiors that promote wellness.

In the 1990s, Charmaine was at the inception of design reality television, appearing on Canadian TV for nine seasons of The Decorating Challenge (a precursor to Trading Spaces), Room to Grow on W-Network Canada for two seasons, and on Divine Restoration in Canada and the US on Vision Network. Her popular Ask a Designer newspaper advice column led to a stint on local radio where fans called in to discuss topics for improving their office and home spaces. Years later, a move to Dallas sparked The Living Well Radio Show, which eventually moved from radio to reach a wider podcast audience. 

Today, she uses her passion for interior design to lead her team, providing concierge services with timely turnaround to shape and transform executive homes, vacation rentals, boutique hotels, and turn-key resorts for her bespoke clientele world-wide.
