— Mary Jo Carter
I was in kindergarten when I drew my first floor plan.
My first love is for charming old spaces with great bones
and architectural details. If it’s crying, that’s even better.
I listen and simply must fix it.

Decorators and designers are the best alternative to the big box stores that are fast becoming a thing of the past.

According to Mary Jo, people rarely start from scratch. One of Mary Jo’s approaches to interior decorating is loving what you have. The ultimate goal of this approach is getting your favorite things to look their most beautiful. Evaluating what should stay, prioritizing the tasks, and getting the job complete can be very challenging for even the savviest collectors of things.Invariably, one finds that they need a few new key elements to bring it all together and someone who knows how to expedite the job. Sometimes you get lucky and it’s a talented friend that lends you an extra pair of eyes, but the best results come to you through the decorator or designer. Their resources, experience, and connections take you to the next level.
