Ellie’s passion for interiors began in the world of fashion. After graduating from Cornell University she enjoyed several years of internships in ready-to-wear and jewelry design, merchandising, and public relations, and finally forayed her love of all things beautiful into interior decor.
It was a natural transition for her, as her husband’s business of residential home remodeling, Michael Robert Construction, began to grow. His clients would consistently ask Ellie for assistance choosing finishes for everything from countertops to door knobs, and eventually the furnishings that would fill their new homes. From here, a husband and wife design/build team grew. And from there, a boutique interior design firm.
She takes pride in designing homes that feel authentic and personalized for her clientele in the community she loves, and feels fortunate that she and her husband can raise their two young boys and handsome Chocolate Lab in the town in which they grew up and fell in love.
Ellie Mroz Design’s aesthetic has been described as Modern Traditional.
It’s a bright, approachable, fresh, and organic take on the traditional style that defines our town. Geographically, we are close to both the serene coastlines of the Atlantic and to the buzzing metropolitan city - both elements are represented in her design, but neither overwhelm. EMD’s designs have been described as touchable, livable, layered, laid-back and luxe.
Ellie Mroz strives to create spaces that give her clients joy every day. Based on her belief that your most cherished items should be used every day, not stored away for special occasions, she encourages her clients to choose items they love, and then incorporates those pieces seamlessly into their homes.
