Celebrating 28 years!

Interior Designer and 121Studio principal, Clare Donohue:

I'm looking forward to hearing about your home and how we can make it better. I named my company "one to one" because that's the best part: figuring out how to nurture a space's full potential in a way that's unique to each client. I'm not about imposing a signature look on everyone (I would get so bored with that)! To me, mixing it up between WARM MODERN and COOL TRADITIONAL is a lot more interesting than working in a single style.

What I'm looking for in a project: 

Being a small, personal design studio means we can only take on a few projects a year, so I want each one to be great. That doesn't mean it has to be a big project (although we love those), just the right project. I'm looking for happy people who find the idea of transforming their home exciting. I'm attracted to projects that offer positive energy, creative collaboration, an adequate budget and time frame, and would make a beautiful portfolio addition. I look forward to talking with you about your project!

How it Works

"There's nothing you can do with my kitchen," is what Clare Donohue often hears when people call her to do something with their kitchen. 

- Manhattan User's Guide

Worth every penny! 

- Rich

Clare has an excellent eye, uses space (and everyone's time) efficiently, and respects your budget. A master of high and low; she can do an incredible Ikea kitchen or the most high-touch custom cabinetry. 

- Sarah

A real find.

-The Franklin Report

"I so loved working with Clare! I especially loved her intuitive, present ability to key in to my tastes and visions." 

- Mac

She is a GENIUS with color and has the kind of calm personality that's crucial when overseeing a complicated construction and design project. Hire her! 

– Kathy

She immediately tuned into where we were headed and then made it so much more.


She has an unerring eye for color -- we speak reverently of the "Clare colors" that she selected for both the home and office. They're magic.

- Stephen

Clare's work can only be described using superlatives. But the work itself is only half the story. Working with her to see your collective vision come to life is just as rewarding. She tackles every project as if it were her first, with a sense of enthusiasm and wonder that is infectious. Her years of experience, coupled with her energy, makes a would-be renovation slog into a fun adventure! – Cristina

It’s going to take me a few months to get used to living in splendor. 

- Steve

We did a consult with Clare and came away with pages of ideas and suggestions. By figuring out how to use the pieces we have, get clear on what we needed to buy and how to make them all work together, our consult with Clare was a huge leap forward.

– Karen + Josh

You have been tireless and great. There’s no way we could do this without you.
