About McGaw & Company...

When the Palm Beach design team of John and Marilyn McGaw founded Residential Interiors Group, a boutique design firm in 1992, their aspiration was to excel in award winning interiors reflecting their client’s personality, lifestyle and specific design goals.

The power couple’s portfolio of high-end private clients, realtors, builder/developer custom & models homes and hospitality industry projects are located from the Pacific West Coast to Florida have included budgets ranging from $25,000 to over $1 million dollars.

Residential Interiors Group is serious about integrating custom designed features and furnishings essential to their client’s lives. “Our vision is readily realized with the freedom and know-how combined with the latest technology and innovative materials”, explains Marilyn McGaw.  She continues, “An unlimited expression of our design vision with a classic approach creates unique opportunities for expression of whimsy and serendipity.”
That customization continues throughout the entire process with John McGaw providing operational attention to detail, ensuring each element is installed to meet “design intent” and bringing their clients a level of distinction more traditional design channels can only dream of.  “Our goal is to create unexpected ‘memory points’ with outstanding interiors that stand the test of time,” John explains.

“We love to create unique homes we would like to visit or live in.”  Exemplifying the design savoir faire for which they are known, they work their magic creating show stopping interiors. “We want our clients to stand out in their environment”.  While the McGaws might like to see their clients stand out in their environments, the rooms they design shine quite brightly on their own.  As brightly, in fact, as the firm that creates them.
