Hi! I'm Mara. I live in Worcester, Massachusetts with my husband Frank, our daughter Veronica, and our two cats, Sully and Josie. In October 2017, we moved in to a diamond-in-the-rough ranch that we're making into a home, bit by bit. Even though Frank has been a homeowner before, this is my first time! So I wanted to document this process and hopefully share some interesting and fun projects along the way.

A little about me: I earned a Master's degree in Interior Design from Pratt Institute, and I've spent most of my career in the design and construction industry. For the last 5 years, I've been on the marketing side of the business, and I currently work for a mid-sized engineering firm here in the northeast. 

I love history, decorative arts, architecture and preservation. I like mixing styles and I think every design aesthetic has something to offer. 

In 2016, I launched Homeward Interior Design, a full-service design studio dedicated to beautiful, comfortable, approachable interiors. If you have a project at your home and would like to collaborate, contact me here

I hope you like what you see, and feel free to reach out to me with questions about any of my projects. You can also subscribe and get a weekly email with the latest posts.

Thanks for stopping by!
