Design Approach


LoveGivesWell: Syracuse Wedding VendorsFor Mary Schalk, no project is complete without her resolute attention to detail and commitment to the best possible outcome for her clients.

Since its 2000 inception, Mary Schalk Design has grown from a boutique studio to a brand that includes specialty services and products for residential and commercial clients.

Mary is a savvy designer with a global view of design. She seamlessly mixes modern with vintage, high and low with careful consideration of comfort and livability.

Mary is a designer with a keen sense of color, an eye for the unique and an attention to detail. She stays current with industry trends but does not subscribe to a trendy approach in her work. Using furnishings and décor to define a space with a posh, sophisticated look allow her to bring breathability to even the smallest of spaces.

“ I want my clients to experience visual pleasure every time they enter a room – a sense that everything is there for a reason. Things don’t have to be perfect or a perfect match.  I’m not a fan of one dimensional, staged or stiff interiors that lack soul. A well placed quirky piece can often work harder than an expensive name brand piece.

 The individual elements that make up room should create character and a cohesiveness for a lasting design that only needs updating from time to time.”  Mary Schalk
