Before launching Carrie McCall Design, Carrie spent several years working in the fashion industry as a merchandiser and retail manager. Her professional background in fashion and design, savvy eye for color and adventurous sense of style, combined with her ability to transform her visions into reality, made it an easy and obvious transition to interior and home design.
Carrie’s interest and experience in remodeling and home construction came about during the significant renovation of her own home through which she became intimately involved in all facets of the renovation. She gained an appreciation of customization while maintaining the character, integrity and charm of the 100 year old residence. She soon took on a complete renovation of a home in Summit, expanding her knowledge and expertise in home building and design, and in 2015 completed the full construction of a custom built luxury 6 bedroom home.
With over 15 years in the fashion merchandizing, design and home building business, Carrie brings a unique perspective and skill set to bear on the solutions that she delivers to her clients. Her knowledge of and experience in construction and remodeling is an invaluable asset that stands her apart from other interior designers.
Personal Design Philosophy
Incorporating design elements that add high impact through color (e.g., black lacquered railings, doorframes and or trim, colorful or textured wallpaper, contrasting accents with a pop of color)
Combining and mixing old (clients’ older existing or vintage pieces) with the new to help create warmth, personality and avoid the “showroom” feel
Taking a few risks and breaking the “rules” (mix metals, pops of color, hanging wall art or light fixtures off center)
Adding a little fun with objects that reflect clients’ personalities and/or will start a conversation
Mixing higher end “designer” pieces with more affordable furniture and accessories
