An interior designer who translates your lifestyle into timeless, inviting rooms


There are many reasons you may decide to refresh your space. Families grow and shrink, life transitions happen and sometimes you simply procrastinate and let things go because you are busy. Good interior design reflects your current tastes, lifestyles and needs. When you enter that room and really look at it, do you feel uninspired and frustrated instead of pleased, at peace and energized? Psychologists are learning how much our environments affect our mental and emotional health. Does your space make you feel like your best self?


How you live and function in your home and the nurturing you receive from your environment contributes directly to your ability to navigate confidently in the outside world. Mary Crane is adept at finding stylish yet practical solutions that focus on your tastes and requests. She works on projects—and budgets—of all sizes, from advising on a remodel, to redecorating your entire home, to tackling that one problematic area.

Of course we inhabit our homes, but we don’t always really live in them. Do you have a living room or spare bedroom that is severely underutilized? Could any of these spaces be repurposed to read while listening to music … work on hobbies … provide a compact home office? Mary has completed many makeovers that have added function and versatility to an underused space while lending warmth and style to draw family and friends closer together.


If you decide a change would be great but a total redesign is not in your budget right now, then the style lift you crave might be achieved by rearranging what you already own. Mary can rearrange and transform any room to give it a fresh, new look. Who says a nightstand can’t be used as an end table or those random souvenirs can’t be organized into a focused collection? Perhaps the sofa would look and function better if it were moved. Mary’s discerning eye will uncover treasures you didn’t know you had and offer affordable options for your blank walls. If your budget only allows for a few throw pillows and a lamp, Mary can help you feel like you have redecorated, mostly by using what you already own.
