Calla Cane McNamara’s design education started from a very young age. The daughter of architectural photographer Jeff McNamara, Calla grew up shadowing him on shoots for publications like Elle Decor, Luxe, Veranda, and The New York Times. These early first-hand experiences honed her natural grasp of light, color, and space, and exposed her to exceptional architecture and interior design and the people who create it — sources of inspiration to this day.
Calla got her start in the industry by working with architectural firms in New York City and Westport, Connecticut and as an independent interior designer. Calla’s drive to learn about design first hand influenced her decisions to join a construction firm where she acquired practical knowledge about the design and construction process. She worked hand in hand with carpenters onsite to develop millwork drawings and understand the cost and practicality of her designs.
Calla has a wide range of experience that allows her to capture a high level of design while maintaining a practical mindset around construction, timelines and liveability. She strives not just to provide a service; but to curate a journey from start to finish, that feels approachable and enjoyable.
