Like most fields called “creative,” interior design has been fraught with mystery. People are led to believe that there’s something magical about it, something that’s simply beyond the comprehension of mere mortals. You’ve been led to believe that “only the professionals,” “the high priests and priestesses” of creativity are qualified to tackle the ancient mysteries of design. Well, that’s a myth, and many in the design industry are major promoters of the myth. The last thing a lot of designers want is for you to get a “look behind the curtain.” Mary Cook is a nationally recognized interior designer. Her Chicago-based firm, Mary Cook Associates, has been delivering award-winning interior design for commercial and residential clients for more than 25 years. In the midst of her company’s growth, something happened. Mary Cook Associates began to get more and more calls to “fix” interiors that had just been completed by someone else, but somehow didn’t “feel right” to the clients or the people using them. In analyzing the problems, somewhere after the twentieth fix, Mary had the epiphany that led to her revolutionary synthesis of the principles of interior design.
