Holly Gagne

Principal & Owner

Interior Design is a second career for Holly after spending years working in a top consulting firm and learning how to manage people and structure projects. Holly received her masters of Interior Architecture from the Boston Architectural College, and has been running independent design projects for the past 10 years.

Growing up in Maine and traveling the world has given Holly a unique appreciation for the connection of design and place. Frequent trips to New Orleans for the pure enjoyment of food, music, and people remind her how a place can nourish the soul. And as a mom of two, she has come to appreciate the harmony that a home can bring to a busy life.

With every project Holly seeks new concepts, new techniques, new design solutions and new materials to perfectly compliment that one client and that one space. Holly wants every one of her clients to experience how truly thoughtful design can change their lives.
