Drew McGukin Interiors is intent on delivering a level of expertise that is innovative while being classically trained. Located in Chelsea, the designer and his team are currently at work on projects in and near Manhattan, the Hamptons in Long Island, North Carolina and the West coast.
Approach to Residential Design
Using his life-work mantra "design = collaboration," McGukin strives to incorporate as many points-of-view as he can collect and balance in any given project. Blending the design voices and meeting the client's needs contribute to a beautifully designed space. The designer dives into the process of design, which he believes is his gold standard and allows him to be within the right framework from the outset.
McGukin's goal is that every space tells a story, evokes a feeling, or creates an experience. He doesn't like the feeling of designed rooms that appear like a stage set and believes interiors should reflect the personality of the owner and their life. "My top priority is creating a soul in a home," he explains. Along with adding a touch of the unexpected, he is known for his beautiful textures and bold patterns that vibrate with the perfect degree of sophistication, warmth, innovation, style and approachability.
The designer is constantly trending, filtering and noticing sensory information. He has confidence in his ability to recognize the next thing and keep his work fresh. He also cites music, friendships and travel as major influences.
