Our Story

At Paula McCoy Studios, we create beautifully tailored interiors for our clients. We believe the home is an extension of ones’ personality, and therefore no two homes should look and feel the same.​

The studio blends traditional and eclectic design styles - with a modern sensibility - to create interiors that are inviting and highly personalized. We specialize in high-end residential decorating projects, as well as full gut renovations.

Originally from Chicago, Paula has worked in residential design for the past 7 years. She received her training in Interior Design & Architecture from Parsons and worked at several notable New York City firms before launching her studio in 2017. Paula began her career in the tech industry - working in operations and e-commerce - before deciding to jump head first into the world of design. Paula discovered her passion for design at a young age, working on fashion design projects, but it wasn’t until she moved to San Francisco after college that she decided to become an interior designer. She credits the striking and well-preserved Victorian architecture of the city to her obsession with the interiors of old houses.


Inspired by sourcing trips to Mexico and Turkey, Paula has also cultivated a love for vintage textiles and artisan-made home goods. Paula is continuously inspired by classical architecture, natural materials, and weekly sourcing trips throughout New York City.
