About Emily Mackie

A Texas native, Emily Mackie grew up surrounded by beautiful things. Inspired by this desire to create special surroundings, she moved to Chicago to attend the Illinois Institute of Art, where she graduated with a B.F.A. in Interior Design. She began her design career at Gensler and, in the years that followed, she continued to work on large-scale commercial interior design. In 2003, Mackie found her niche working in residential design. She received her National Council for Interiors Design Qualification (NCIDQ) and license in the State of Illinois, and became a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID.) By 2004, she founded her own luxury design firm Inspired Interiors.

By building her firm and her team, Mackie has created a work environment where women can realize their professional dreams without sacrificing family. A mother of three, Emily balances family and work life with motivation and dedication and believes that with a supportive and uplifting network, we can all succeed.




Our approach is simple, transparent, and tailored towards each client’s unique style and needs.


The discovery phase of our comprehensive interior design process begins with getting to know our clients and their lifestyles as if we’re reading an enthralling biography. We take into account each client’s past, present and future — where and how did you grow up; what are your current living circumstances; what are your dreams and aspirations? These singular traits for each person are the guiding forces that see us through the entire design process — from the acquisition of your home to the installation of magazine-ready interiors.


Our staff is on hand and on site to continue our relationship throughout the interior architecture development phase of each project. First, we craft a set of blueprints that guide the overall curation of the space. Once decided upon, we secure contractors to execute every detail to our specifications, managing the work so that it meets within your expected timeframe and budget. We are there every step of the way to ensure our collaborative design vision is carried thoughout the entire process.


The production and implementation phase includes the procurement of all materials and furnishings in a timely and efficient manner so that you’re able to move into your new dream home as soon as possible. Our partnership continues through the installation phase, where we are able to select each piece that lives up to your expectations and your budget. We arrange delivery and set up and then meticulously attend to every detail, from the placement of your coffee table and bedroom furniture to the final fluff of each pillow.
