Maggie Bratton Dillon is an interior designer based in Raleigh, North Carolina. A graduate of Wofford College, Maggie’s first foray into interior design began at Circa Interiors & Antiques in Charlotte, NC. From there she joined Charlotte Lucas Interior Design while simultaneously pursuing graduate studies at The Art Institute of Charlotte. During her nearly six years with Charlotte Lucas, Maggie honed her expertise and developed a distinct eye for mixing pattern, color, and texture. She also played an integral part in significantly growing the company through her innate organizational skills and strong understanding of the business.

Maggie Dillon Interiors was founded in 2020 with a goal to provide an approachable resource within the interior design space. Maggie is continuously inspired to help clients discover their own personal design aesthetic or bring new life to a significant piece that has been passed down. She is recognized for her unique ability to combine highs and lows, such as old antiques and new production pieces, to achieve a balance that’s at once timeless and fresh.

In Her on to get to know Maggie!

What inspires you today? Who are your design "crushes" or favorite instagram accounts for inspiration?

Most British designers & publications are an automatic way for me to find new inspiration. I love how they tend to leave things a little less tidy than we seem to; just the right amount of disheveled. Beata Heuman is the master of this. I also adore Whitney McGregor’s work, Andrew Howard (for both his interiors & quick wit) and Angie Hranowsky.

How would you describe your design aesthetic?

I’m a big fan of pattern play, and not afraid of color. The devil is in the details! And I try to make sure no piece of our puzzle feels forgotten, big or small. I have my former employer/lifelong friend Charlotte Lucas to thank for that!

What do you love most about including original art in your designs?

It’s impossible to beat the added layer of art, particularly when it’s original and therefore meaningful. Getting to learn and understand the artist behind the work, their process & background is not something to take for granted, and allows for a real personal connection to that piece. You will always be able to find the right place to put a work of art that speaks to you.

What are your three "must haves" in order to create an inviting space?

A good contrast welt, thoughtful space planning & patterned upholstery.
