Welcome to our worlds
At McCray & Co., we create unique interior environments for home and hospitality. Led by husband-and-wife team Chris McCray and Grace Hall, our dynamic studio has built a reputation for visionary, concept-driven work and a thoughtful, collaborative approach to design.
With in-house expertise across disciplines, we craft richly layered, one-of-a-kind spaces where people love to spend their time. From new construction to full-scale redesign, we prioritize responsibility and customization so that each space becomes as vibrant and singular as the people in it.
McCray & Co. was founded in 2011 by Chris McCray and Grace Hall. Since then, we’ve expanded our studio to include a team of exceptional designers, movers and shakers, alongside a network of architects, builders, artists and makers who share a respect for creative design, defined processes and the highest level of craftsmanship. Collaboration, transparency and clear communication define our relationship with one another and with our clients.
Historically, I find working with designers difficult. I love leading projects and allowing my voice to come through, and oftentimes, designers dislike that attribute in a client. Grace and Chris have not only supported my voice, but encouraged it. They listen to my feedback and tailor their designs toward suggestions I have, while respectfully contributing their voices as well.
Chris McCray and Grace Hall of McCray & Co. are the masterful design minds behind some of Austin’s most memorable spaces: the magical and whimsical French eatery Lenoir; the funky, cool Stiles Switch BBQ; and the Texas-meets-Japanese (and always buzzing) Kemuri Tatsu-Ya...
Chris not only quickly gets what we’re going for; he has collaborated with us and helped to advance our ideas in new and impressive ways. His design expertise is top-notch.
One of our favorite creatives is Chris McCray of McCray & Co., a designer who has natural talent... His creations are always fresh, soulful, and inspiring.
