This Bay Area entrepreneur is a Southern transplant who grew up in Tallahassee, FL and attended undergraduate at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. Living briefly in Charleston, SC as well as Memphis, cities rich in architectural history, created a lifetime love of architecture, design, and the relation between a home’s past and present. Spending a summer studying at Oxford University where she traveled extensively for the first time throughout Europe, as well as an extended trip to Japan also fueled Lane’s love of design and architecture.
After graduating from Rhodes with a BA in music, Lane moved to San Francisco to attend SFCM where she graduated with a post-graduate degree in vocal performance and then spent several years as a highly acclaimed soprano in leading roles throughout the Bay Area. With the demands of a growing family causing music and performance to take a backseat, Lane began to focus entirely on design and interiors. Working closely for several years on numerous projects with a local design and construction firm as a designer and assistant project manager gave Lane invaluable hands-on training and augmented her knowledge and savvy of the design and construction process. During this time, she continued to travel to Europe spending a majority of her time in Italy, studying the language, art and historical architecture. A move to Berkeley in 2008 added yet another city with an architectural pedigree to her growing list of cities to fall in love with.
Lane started her own firm in 2010 and now manages a team under Lane McNab Interiors. A deep appreciation for the transformative power of beauty in people lives whether through music or design connects her passions. Lane McNab Interiors specializes in full home interiors, boutique retail, and second homes in California.
