Calla Cane is a full service interior design studio offering interior design, kitchen and bathroom design and construction management. We’re thoughtful about using environmentally and socially responsible products and curating an appreciation for the artisans behind them. We work transparently and execute projects within the budgets our clients provide.
As we guide you through this process, we listen a lot. From your design preferences and aesthetic to practical considerations for your space/lifestyle, we will deliver the strongest version of your vision for your home. We have experience with working with all kinds of specifications–kids, pets, minimalism, traditionalism, only vegan materials...you name it. We create beautiful spaces that support and celebrate how you live.
We’ll design and deliver a beautiful, move-in-ready home, curating everything from the big marquee pieces–custom-designed furniture, upholstery, and window treatments–to details like bed linens, thoughtfully-selected shelf and table books, and framed family photos.
FURNISHING + ADVISEMENT
Acting in an advisory role, we’ll collaborate with you and your project architect and builder from start to finish, advising on every detail of the architectural, construction, and interior design plan.
FURNISHING + DESIGN
The whole enchilada. Serving as the lead project designer and construction manager, we’ll act as the main point of contact between you and the construction team, handle every aspect of the construction process, and guide you each step of the way toward wishing your dream home into existence, from concept to construction documentation.
Who is Calla? Calla Cane McNamara’s design education started from a very young age. The daughter of renowned architectural photographer Jeff McNamara, she 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.
After college, she got her start in the industry by working with architectural firms in New York City and Westport, Connecticut and as an independent interior designer. In 2014, she struck out on her own and founded a full-service design company, Calla Studio. Six years into running and growing her business on the East Coast, Calla expanded to the West Coast, as well as opened her own retail store, Calla Cane, in Solana Beach, California.
As founder and creative director of the studio, Calla works closely with clients, managing creative direction, conceptual and design development. She also oversees and collaborates with an efficient, experienced team of highly specialized designers to create award-winning design solutions. Calla believes design is rooted in good composition and scale. She’s passionate about creating spaces perfectly tailored to clients’ lifestyle and that just feel good to spend time in.
