It’s with great anticipation I'd like to announce the launch of an exciting new venture. But before I state the details let me first express, the past five years up until this very day has been everything I could hope for and more- much more.

My role as designer/stylist and merchandiser at Inspired in the Historic Third Ward on Milwaukee's Lakefront has been a highlight of my life and career!  

Not only have I become more connected to the art of room design, furniture, and interiors but I've also gained a family-an amazing team of dedicated, heartfelt, hard working, passionate, strong women and one cool dude, who are committed to a retail mission focused on breathing life and light (Inspired) into a beautiful, bustling and creative community. 

Working alongside my Inspired design partner and treasured soul sister Terry, I’ve had the opportunity to design uniquely curated vignettes and displays. We’ve created a place to truly be inspired in hopes of helping our customers recreate similar spaces in their own homes. As a result we've been able to present an environment that people want to live in- literally.

 In addition, I’ve had the privilege of experience- epic buying trips, champagne birthday celebrations, annual warehouse sale madness, all nighter floor resets, and dear workmate and customer relationships. The grand success I've had on this wild ride has fostered in me a deep calling to to expand my horizons of design influence.

In spite of the overwhelming challenge furniture selection can be for many, I’ve recognized there are also some other significant needs of our customers. Many people are searching for additional help, especially when updating, renovating or building a new home. My work as a full service designer will now also include things such as paint consultation, surface selection for flooring, countertops, tile and overall assistance with redesign and new construction. Based on my love for layers, accessories and texture, I’ve come up with a name that reflects these essentials; Layered.

To my existing Inspired customers: You truly inspire me-every day. Thank you with all my heart for trusting me with your ideas, your hopes and your homes. I will be in the shop until August 1st.  This is not goodbye, only an addition to many more projects and expanded services. I hope to work with you all in the near future.

With a grateful Heart,

Dana McNamee
