“We often joke that Jesse and Mara are like contributing editors to my own private magazine. Both at Vogue and at home, they always bring a grand vision to the table—along with invaluable expertise and an impeccable eye. It continues to amaze me that they managed to turn a series of broken-down barns into a wonderful compound for my family.” —Anna Wintour
Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, the principals of Carrier and Company Interiors, are a husband-and-wife design duo who create rooms that are a confident mix of timeless and contemporary design—familiar and fresh at once. Always refined and sophisticated, the Carriers’ work ranges in style from elegantly traditional to luxuriously minimalist. Their rooms often features subtle patterns and neutral palettes punctuated by bursts of exuberance and unexpected mixes of high and low, old and new. Whether decorating a sprawling country house or a Tribeca loft, a winter home in Florida or an apartment in a converted New York printing house, the Carriers’ mission is to connect people with place and combine their tailored, carefully edited and curated approach with the clients’ collections, artwork, taste, and personality, creating exquisitely detailed yet comfortable and personalized spaces.
As Architectural Digest noted in naming them to the 2012 AD Top 100, “They have established a reputation for spicing the appropriate with the strikingly unusual.” And when they were named to the list again in 2014, the magazine cited the “spirited, winning nature of this Manhattan-based couple, who in less than a decade have attracted the attention—and business—of fashion and media heavyweights.” Clients include Anna Wintour (Vogue), Bob Pittman, Jane Rosenthal, Catie and Donald Marron, Jay Felden (Town & Country), and Jason Wu, to name a few. Their work has been published in Elle Decor, which named them to its 2014 A-List, The World of Interiors, Vogue, Traditional Home, Town & Country, W, and House Beautiful.
Illustrated with some 275 full-color photographs and featuring a foreword by Anna Wintour, Carrier and Company: Positively Chic Interiors introduces the reader to the Carriers’ unique aesthetic and shows why they are the designers of choice for so many of the country’s most discriminating arbiters of taste. It will undoubtedly be the standout decorating book of the year.

"Carrier and Company: Positively Chic Interiors includes lush spreads of their greatest hits."

"Husband-and-wife design duo Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, who are the force behind Carrier & Company interiors, have perfected the art of creating airy, light-filled spaces that simultaneously maintain a sense of confidence and an aura of authenticity. Traditional, bohemian, or minimalist—each project is a testament to the breadth of their work. The book, with 275 illustrations, details the designers' unique aesthetic."
