I was raised in Manhattan Beach where I grew up in homes custom built and designed by my parents. Visiting job sites and marking up blueprints with my contractor father gave me my first taste of the design process.
Today, I bring South Bay’s casual sophistication to homes across Southern California. Passionate about textiles and design, my goal is always to elevate the everyday into motivating spaces for my clients. Innovative, fun and inspiring are three of my favorite adjectives when it comes to home design.
I work with both homeowners and developers to create personalized homes that are timeless yet current; with thoughtful layers that look and feel as though they’ve been collected over time. Focusing on clients’ culture, tastes and interests as well as the home’s architecture, I translate those influences into highly livable, visually stunning interiors. Kids, pets, sand and swimming pools inspire instead of limit my creative possibilities.
I work primarily in the beach cities of Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach, and travel for clients as needed.
As a former luxury design specialist for House Beautiful and Modern Luxury Interiors California magazines, I decided to bring that knowledge and passion to interior design and founded MC Design in 2007.
Home is in Lower Lunada Bay in Palos Verdes Estates with my husband and two Chihuahuas. I’m a firm believer in cocktail hour(s) and beautifully organized spaces.
