I’ve known Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller for almost 15 years, so when their first book CARRIER AND COMPANY: POSITIVELY CHIC INTERIORS arrived on my doorstep, I could. not. contain. my. joy. Mara was the design director at the first firm I worked for, fresh out of design school, whom I credit with teaching me 99% of what I know about decorating. (Sorry, Parsons.) It seems like just yesterday, so I find it wild to realize that it’s been 10 years since Jesse and Mara, husband-and-wife design duo, opened Carrier and Company Interiors. What is truly unparalleled is that for their 10 year anniversary a gorgeous 200+ page monograph, forwarded by one of their all-star clients, Anna Wintour, has been published by The Vendome Press.
When Architectural Digest named Jesse and Mara to the AD Top 100 for the second time in 2014, the magazine cited the “spirited, winning nature of this Manhattan-based couple, who in less than a decade have attracted the attention–and business–of fashion and media heavyweights.” Indeed, their clients include Anna Wintour, Bob Pittman, Jason Wu, Jane Rosenthal, Catie and Donald Marron, Jay Fielden (Town & Country), and Jessica Chastain, to name a few.
From the above photo of the couple with one of their two children, to the both familiar-and-fresh spaces in the slideshow, Jesse and Mara create rooms that span from elegantly traditional to glamorously bohemian – and are always chic.
