Interior decorator Louise Cronan is best known for her elegant and enduring residential design. Louise’s 37-year career includes distinguished senior design positions at Dorothy Draper & Company under the tutelage of Carleton Varney, and at Kevin McNamara Inc. In 1989, Cronan established her eponymous firm—a full-service design company with projects in New York, Connecticut, Atlanta, and Palm Beach. Combining layered sophistication with livable comfort, Cronan creates charming personal spaces for families to enjoy. Her signature use of vibrant colors brings a sense of wit and character to the rooms she decorates. “It is my hope that my interiors reflect a sophistication of timeless and tasteful style, imbued with an American ease,” says Cronan. Louise’s work has been published in Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Veranda, Southern Accents, Southern Living, Cottage Living, and Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles.
