CO-FOUNDER & ROCKY RIVER SANTA

Meet Jane Marquard

Richard and | started Paysage in 1985, sold it in 2015, and created Maison Mason back home in Rocky River. We have loved the "home" business every day for almost 38 years! I love warmth, textures, mixes of woods and styles. I want the room to feel comfy and functional. I love working some my client's preexisting pieces so it retains their character. And | adore aged elements that add so much character to a space. My influences are Rose Tarlow for her weathered wood

Meet Karen Pattee

ADMINISTRATION


Karen first joined the Maison Maison staff in 2017. She quickly became part of the "family". Having worn many different hats here at Maison, she knows where to go and what to do to serve you best. People matter to Karen, and she will do all she can to help you love home.

Before joining Maison Maison, Ami was a Design client! Her passion and flair for creating a beautiful home made her the perfect fit for our team. Ami loves helping clients find the right elements to give a home a quick refresh or a whole new look.

pieces and well-loved fabrics. She blends those ideas with almost formal profiles to make a really interesting room. I also love Nancy Braithwaite for her use of black with cream, aged finishes, and humor in design. I use a more neutral palette for my clients with pops of natural colors to create a serene space, without forgetting the kids and the dogs. I still love doing design today as much as | did when we started 38 years ago!

Meet Michele Ahern

I came into Maison Maison just over two years ago looking for a lamp and left with a lamp and a job. After a return “home” from Chicago to be closer to family this was the perfect opportunity to continue my design work. It is a pleasure to work with the Maison Maison team every day.  

I love to work off of a neutral palette of furnishings with pops of colors in vibrant tones. I always draw inspiration from pieces in a clients home to choose what those colors will be. I love collections, be it Toby’s or Staffordshire Dogs. The mix of antiques with more modern pieces is one of my favorite challenges to conquer in a home. I hope to always create unique and original interiors that reflect my clients taste, personal history and lifestyle.

LEAD INTERIOR DESIGNER

I am inspired by Evan Millard who’s use of color in a space is spectacular. He has perfected the use of bold colors in big and small ways that make a statement without being to obtrusive in the space.

I also love the work of Bunny Williams. I think she has mastered the use of a mix of the old and new, that just makes sense. I think her work shows you can take chances with some choices that in the end make the space very unique and one of a kind. 

At the end of a project I always hope that the client sees themself in my design. My favorite thing to hear from a client isn’t, 'It’s Beautiful,' in fact it is 'It’s So Me!' That’s when I know the design is perfect!

Meet Michele Ross Samek

My style of design is sophisticated eclectic. I am influenced by the organic style of Isabel Lopez Quesada, of Spain taking the new and the old, modern and traditional, along with the garden, stringing it all together to create a beautiful environment to live peacefully. Others that have influenced my style are Furlow Gatewood from Americus Georgia and Kathryn Ireland, from London, two different designers, from far
ends of the earth, yet create incredible spaces with a combination of fabrics and furniture styles. Each with an organic embrace. I typically start with a neutral palette for upholstered furniture pieces, unless it is a fantastic old piece that you love, let's reupholster it in

a fun patterned fabric, which I love to do. Adding color with pillows, artwork, wall color, wallpaper. Love wallpaper! I mix textures from the floor up. Sisal carpets layered with heirloom rugs or sustainably foraged hides. Stone, marble and terra cotta tiles add wonderful warmth and it is great to find vintage tiles to work in any room. I love blue and white Qinghua porcelain pottery. I feel it is neutral in any design setting, paired with fresh greenery, it is stunning. Wood accessories work into any room, such as trays, bowls, screens, and candlesticks. Lighting styles can range anywhere from old School house to contemporary depending on the room. Task to ambience can be achieved.
