Wilfong opened Windows & Walls in 1984. A year later she returned to school to earn a career studies certificate in interior design. She runs her business from her home, which she says gives her the freedom to work with customers in their own homes. "Working one-on-one with customers allows me to get a better sense of each customer's tastes and personality," she says. Her ability to work closely with clients-meeting specific design requests and using existing furnishings-is amply illustrated in the treatments shown.
Being service oriented, Wilfong's work has taken her from half-million-dollar homes to recreational vehicles and mobile homes with many repeat customers.

A spare bedroom is turned into an elegant Old World guest room that accentuates the client's Victorian accessories. Faux silk drapery panels in a eucalyptus color were created and held back with Van Lathem tassels in sea foam hues. Light control was the most important factor in this room design so a Symphony double honeycomb shade from Comfortex was specified. To ensure outside light posed no problem for guests, the drapery panels can be released to block any remaining light. For the top treatment, sage green sheer fabric was casually laced through wood rings and a Kirsch Fashion Trend centerpiece creates the appearance of a fan at the top and a swag at the bottom. A reversible comforter cover was created from two fabrics to be used in both the new guest room and the master bedroom.
