Founded by Patricia McLean in 1985, Patricia McLean Interiors, Inc. is located in Atlanta in the heart of Buckhead. Considered a true, traditional designer, Patricia specializes in the customization of paint colors, finishes and fabrics and layering of antiques and accessories. Guiding clients architecturally through construction to ensure the “bones” are correct for furniture placement and flow is paramount to her design philosophy.
A graduate of the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Science in furnishings and interiors, Patricia was selected to restore the Georgia governor's mansion ballroom. In addition, she has been featured in the Cashiers, North Carolina Designer Showhouse and the Atlanta Symphony Associates' Decorators' Show House for many years, earning a 2010 American Society of Interior Designers Design Excellence Award for her work at The St. Regis Atlanta Residences. Patricia has since designed two residence model homes and the retail shop for The St. Regis Atlanta. She also received the Institute of Classical Architecture's 2009 Philip Shutze Residential Interior Design Award for her interior design of a classic, Regency-styled custom home.
Patricia McLean Interiors has been highlighted in several books including Scalamandré Haute Décor, Show Houses 3, Interiors Southeast and Spectacular Homes of Georgia, and in numerous magazines including Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, Atlanta Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens and Traditional Home. Patricia has also appeared on the television programs “Better Mornings” and “Good Day Atlanta.”
The University of Georgia honored Patricia McLean Interiors with the 2013 Bulldog 100 Award for business, ranking 21st, and the 2009 Emily Quinn Pou Professional Achievement Award. The Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2013 – 2014 Book of Lists ranks the firm as one of Atlanta’s top 20 residential interior design firms.
