Mary Caroline Mumpower has always had a flair and passion for design.
After graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in hotel restaurant management, she moved to New York City. A creative at heart, Mary Caroline decided to follow her true calling and pursue interior design in 2001. She enrolled in the New York School of Interior Design and was accepted, during her schooling, to intern with renowned interior designer Bunny Williams. Upon completing the internship, she was deeply honored when Bunny hand-picked her to be her assistant.
Mary Caroline then went to work as a senior designer for Richard Keith Langham’s celebrated New York design firm. After these incredibly enriching experiences, Mary Caroline decided it was time to “hang out her own shingle”, as the saying goes, and moved to Southwest Virginia to be near her family. Based in downtown Bristol VA/TN, MCM Interior Design was born in 2006.
Mary Caroline’s first love is her family, which includes her devoted and ever-supportive husband, and wonderful twin boys. She is deeply rooted in her community through philanthropy, service, and involvement on several key boards, seeking to create beauty wherever possible. Mary Caroline is an avid traveler, drawing design inspiration from all over the globe; she also loves sports as both a tennis player and fan – cheers for the University of Georgia … Go Dawgs!
