Mary Hawthorne Interiors became a brick and mortar reality after many years as a “someday” idea. The retail shop is a thoughtfully curated collection of gifts, home decor, furniture and so much more. The design aesthetic of the store is reminiscent of the sophistication and comfort that so many clients seek for their own homes.
“I want my customers and my design clients to feel at home when they enter my shop.”
At MHI, we strive to provide a unique shopping experience where friends come to find carefully selected tabletop design elements for any season alongside finely crafted furniture and home decor.
In addition to the retail shop, Mary Hawthorne Interiors is a full service design studio. The MHI design team works with clients on projects at any stage from conception to completion. MHI offers custom designed furniture, bedding and decor options, and any of our designers are able to work with clients to achieve a unique and stylish design.
Mary is a wife, mother of 3 grown sons and owner of Mary Hawthorne Interiors. Her love for design began early with great influence from both her mother, who was an accomplished seamstress and homemaker, and her dad, who studied architecture. Mary graduated from Georgia Tech and worked in the business world for many years before staying home to raise her boys. She pursued design at every opportunity, including antique booths, styling spaces for other vendors, flipping houses with her husband and eventually decorating homes of friends before finally opening a full-service design studio. Two years ago, with the support of her husband, Keith, Mary added a retail space. Keith is in the store many nights and weekends helping Mary build displays, move furniture or just keeping her company. They have both enjoyed the daily activity that comes with a retail store. The future holds great possibilities as Mary continues to pursue opportunities outside of the brick and mortar studio. Her desire to meet and collaborate with other creatives has led to new friendships and ideas that she hopes to continue to develop.
