RESIDENTIAL SPACES: Function + Lifestyle

“My favorite residential projects are those that inspire creative synergy between the client and designer.” ~Julie McGarr

At McGarr Design & Interiors, we know that the home is a very personal space where a family connects and creates memories. Designing family spaces means learning about a clients’ routines and rituals. We take  into account each families’ activities, whether that is their children’s hobbies, the way they organize their home, or their style preference. By paying attention to the details of our clients’  lifestyles , we ensure they come away with a home that is welcoming, beautiful, and functional.


“It’s important to make sure the design of a commercial space meets clients’ expectation of efficiency and functionality, but we never compromise the aesthetic of a project to meet those needs. Commercial spaces can be both functional and beautiful. We spend quite a bit of time making sure that we design the space in a way that stands the test of time. Any commercial space can be a creative expression of the client and the business.” ~Julie McGarr

Just like our residential clients, commercial clients receive a thoughtful and purposeful approach to the design of their space. One of McGarr Design & Interior’s recent commercial projects, Brasserie 19, showcases the concept of the modern brasserie. Our inspiration came from our travels to the country’s top brasseries and extensive research of French bistros.

Our commercial projects include Irvine Team, Coppa and Pearl 32. McGarr Design & Interior’s goal with each of these has been to gain an understanding of the client’s vision with respect to form, function, and finish, and to execute that vision beautifully, creatively, and in a manner true to both our design aesthetic and the client’s vision of their space.
