For more than forty years Kevin McNamara has been practicing a mysterious and unique concoction of design and decoration for a clientele that resides in cities around this country. His, or rather his clients', interiors can be found in New York, Washington, Chicago, Palm Beach, and in the resort communities of Connecticut and Long Island.
His particularly potent approach to creating gracious living spaces is one that edges toward opulence but eschews the merely glamorous. Mr. McNamara blithely manages to implement interiors that both suit and flatter each individual client. As he proudly notes, "We are not in the business of designing museum spaces, but living spaces which provide our clients with warm and personalized, yet sophisticated, retreats from the outside world. Our goal is to create spaces that reflect the taste and high standards which our clients exhibit in all aspects of their professional and personal lives."
Of course superb training, in his case during extended periods as a design associate first with McMillen & Co. and subsequently with Parish-Hadley, has only served to provide a superior foundation for a successful design business now extending beyond a landmark fifteenth year. He founded his namesake New York-based firm in 1975.
