A Southern transplant, Lane grew up in Tallahassee, FL and completed undergraduate studies at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. She later moved to San Francisco to attend the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where she graduated with advanced degrees in vocal performance and then spent several years as a highly-acclaimed soprano in leading roles throughout the Bay Area.
Several trips to Europe including summer studies at Oxford University and Il Globo Instituto in Italy where she traveled extensively, as well as an extended trip to Japan, fueled Lane’s love of design and architecture. Living in cities like San Francisco, Charleston, SC and Memphis created a lifetime love of the relation between a home’s past and present. After taking time off from singing to manage the demands of a growing family, Lane began to focus entirely on her other passion: designing interiors.
Lane apprenticed on numerous projects with a local design and construction firm as a designer and assistant project manager before founding her own firm in 2012. This hands-on experience allowed Lane to develop a network of trusted vendors, artisans and tradespeople, often with environmental certifications. Custom and semi-custom pieces are a feature of many of Lane’s designs and she works with local artisans to create one-of-a-kind pieces for clients throughout the Bay Area. Lane McNab Interiors has developed a tried and true system for design implementation with an emphasis on a stress-free, detailed execution and client experience.
A deep devotion to the transformative power of beauty in people’s lives, once through music and now through design connects Lane’s passions.
