Downtown Manhattan-based interior designer Tara McCauley is always on the lookout for the perfect vintage find. A lifelong lover of color and pattern, she met her ideal (but by no means vintage!) match in Elle Décor A-List decorator Nick Olsen, under whom she apprenticed for eight years. Inspired by art history, fashion, and travel, Tara’s work is romantic, layered, and often inflected with a dash of humor. With history as an anchor, she finds beauty in the juxtaposition of periods and unexpected materials. Taking a collaborative approach, Tara aims to give each client a unique space which feels thoughtfully collected and true to their personal style. She views design as a means of storytelling and in addition to residential interiors, Tara brings her fashion forward eye to retail, events, and sets. Tara has been recognized as a 2023 “Next Wave” designer by House Beautiful Magazine and she recently designed the Primary Bedroom Suite at the Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse. Her work has been featured in New York Magazine’s “Great Rooms” as well as on NBC’s “Open House.” Tara earned a BA at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study where she pursued an interdisciplinary concentration in art history and architecture, and completed a studio-based architecture intensive at Parsons’ School of Constructed Environments.
