Constantly reaching beyond a singular style, Tracery is a nationally recognized interior design firm specializing in residential and hospitality projects. Tracery was founded in 2004 and since the beginning all aspects of design are interconnected and the visions and needs of the client are paramount. Design excellence is implicit. Projects are executed with passion and personal attention to detail. An enhanced quality of life is the ultimate goal.
Tracery’s designers work in collaboration with studios located in Rosemary Beach, Florida, and Mountain Brook, Alabama. Paige guides the firm and is personally involved in the design of all projects. She is joined by talented designers Anna Kay Porch and Bess Marshall. The firm’s diverse portfolio spans the country from Montana to Nantucket and all across the Southeast and Gulf Coast. In addition to their design studios, Tracery maintain boutique retail shops in both Rosemary Beach and Mountain Brook (and online) offering accessoires, original artwork, occasional furniture, uphostery, lighting and antiques.
To establish an appropriate identify and connection to the place, Paige and the entire Tracery team strive to create timeless and evocative interiors that reflect the desires and demands of the client, while also reflecting the sensibilities of the locale. “The melding of styles and materials instills a home with personality and character, “explains Paige. “I love to mix of clean-lined furniture with vintage and antique furnishings.”
Mindful of the realities of life, Paige embraces welcoming and real spaces, as opposed to heavily decorated rooms. “I like to play with fabrics to keep it casual and comfy, while adding an accent of luxury with a touch of silk that works at the beach or the lake, as well as a permanent residence for an active family,” says Paige.
With strong connections throughout Alabama, Tracery has designed numerous second homes along Lake Martin and Smith Lake, as well as grand permanent residences in Birmingham. Paige has also worked on a variety of renovation projects of historic homes in Mountain Brook that pose their own set of challenges. “You are forced to deal with issue you would never confront if you were designing a home from scratch,” she explains.
Attuned to new marketing tools and the power of social media networking for both civic endeavors and professional ventures, Paige created Tracery’s popular blog in 2010. “We wanted a consistent, yet ever-changing outlet to discuss our work and reflective our creativity,” explains Paige. “It’s incredibly popular with supporters from Belgium and England and all over the U.S. Our readers seek out our shop when they come to the beach and it’s like we already know each other.”
Whether designing the grandest of homes, crafting a modest renovation or developing a color scheme, Tracery’s entire team of talented designers firm takes great pride in creating emotionally evocative spaces that are enduring in value and timeless in appearance.
