Mary Nichols Patton started her design career in New York, working in fashion for Calvin Klein Collection and Theory. In 2007 she moved home to Houston, and launched the Mary Nichols Handbag collection. After seven successful years in the accessory world, and ready for a change, Mary began doing small interior design projects. This led to a career shift from fashion to interior design in 2014. Mary’s work has been featured in national publications such as People MagazineInStyle, and Brides. Mary holds degrees from Southern Methodist University and Parsons School of Design.

Mary Patton Design specializes in residential and commercial projects, home and event styling. Mary brings a fresh approach to elegant, eclectic interiors- mixing modern with vintage; high art with personal treasures- to create moments of unexpected beauty. Mary believes that interior design should be accessible, and an enjoyable experience for clients.
