About Mary Dixon Designs

My Approach

Carefully listening to a client's wishes and interpreting design goals into enjoyable and welcoming spaces - the ones we’re proud of and want to linger in. Creative are the minds that dream up these spaces. I insist on quality, craftsmanship, and reliability. I also advocate eco-friendly, sustainable and socially responsible products and materials. I strive to create spaces that affirm family and community values and treat my clients, trades, and vendors with the utmost respect.

About Me

Originally from a small harbor town on Lake Erie, I enjoyed a childhood full of creative expression influenced by my mother and grandmother, wise and inspiring women who were always knee-deep in creative projects. My journey to becoming an interior designer was unconventional. After studying Fine Arts and Art History at university, I embarked on a career path as a Travel Agent and Meeting Planner for Fortune 500 companies and traveled the world. Later, when working as a legal secretary, I felt that my creative side just wasn’t being fulfilled. I returned to school and graduated highest honors with an Interior Design degree combining my business skills and love for design. If you can trust the process - it’s amazing where an experienced Interior Designer can take you. ‍ I’m an NCIDQ licensed Interior Designer and respected practitioner of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). I’ve been delivering satisfying interiors for over two decades. Honors throughout my career include multiple design awards and 5-star reviews. I’m also recognized in numerous publications and am a recurring Parade of Homes judge.

Let's Work Together

Mary Dixon is the absolute best thing that happened to me. I bought a house earlier in the year and then spent weeks afterwards agonizing about paint colors and furniture choices. I knew that I needed help but I was not sure that I could afford a decorator. I found Mary’s website and reached out to her for the 2 hour “Décor Lite” session. And within minutes into the session, Mary was providing so many helpful tips as she walked around the house and by the end of the session, she had picked paint colors for the entire house. The ease with which she turned an extremely stressful task into one that was actually enjoyable, was simply astonishing to me. I was hooked on Mary from that moment on. Not only does she have great taste, she is extremely professional, knowledgeable, easy to work with and so very attentive to my concerns. In the two months that followed, she decorated my family room, entry way, living room and kitchen area. She worked around my budget and was very thoughtful about the pieces that we bought, balancing price and quality. I had so much fun shopping with Mary and watching her vision come to life. All of the rooms that she decorated simply look amazing. I am now so proud to invite friends and relatives to our new house! Thank you so much, Mary, for everything that you did with the house. It has been such a pleasure working with you! I am so lucky to have found you.
