Alienum phaedrum torquatos
nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex,
nihil expetendis in mei.

Florida native and mother of a man cub, I have a fondness for the sun and miniature things. I have an unmarketable talent for identifying movie score composers.

Mary Jane McAllister

Design Contributor

Wife and mother of two little ones. Lover all things design, baking, eating and binge watching. My ideal day would include lunch at my favorite French restaurant, a manicure, going for a stroll in the park (if only the Tuileries were closer…) and plenty of cappuccinos. I love finding beauty in the every day, even the boring. Introduce yourself if you see me out-- I'll be the one in the striped tee shirt and jeans (or jorts... depending on the season).

I'm basically a hot mess of three trying to keep it together. I'm a Beachbody coach and if I don't get a workout in I can turn into a real momster so it's best for everyone if I have a few moments to myself to get sweaty. Oh, and I survive off of coffee, wine, and Amazon Prime (like everyone else I know).
