AREA’s principal, Janine Carendi MacMurray, graduated from Parsons School of Design and studied decorative arts in Paris.  Her design aesthetic and creative eye were nurtured as a child while growing up in countries such as Sweden, Mexico and Colombia.  Years of exploring foreign towns for local textiles and an early introduction to auction houses gave Janine a broad knowledge of historical and cultural styles that continue to influence her designs today.

Janine founded AREA interior design as a full service interior design firm in 2006, providing creative and innovative design solutions.  Throughout the design project, Janine collaborates personally with each client to achieve unique and timeless spaces that are enhanced by comfort and infused with elegance.  She is proud of her personal relationships with each of her clients and finds it fulfilling that so many have chosen to work with her on multiple properties over the years.
