Colletta Conner


Managing Principal

“Interior design is more than the aesthetic or decorative enhancement of an interior space. It should harmonize with the surrounding architecture to benefit everyone who moves through that space.”

As a former Air Force medic and health-promotion director, Colletta believes in holistic wellbeing. That foundation drives her focus as an interior designer as she thinks about how the environments she creates will impact the body, spirit and mind.

Colletta is the Dallas Studio Leader of ForrestPerkins, a distinct design studio of Perkins Eastman. In her two decades of experience in award-winning hospitality design, Colletta has led projects with major hotel brands both nationally and internationally, in addition to numerous Landmark Historic Hotels and independent boutique properties. She also brings a depth of expertise to spa design, restaurants, resort properties, and major luxury multi-residential projects. Regardless of the type of project she’s overseeing, Colletta’s passion for creating healthy environments is always part of her DNA, which underscores Perkins Eastman’s foundational focus on health and wellness.
