Decor Tips

“I have my dream job”, says residential and commercial designer, Mark Jay. Born in Detroit, educated at Eastern Michigan University he graduated with a degree in arts management. Mark opted for more arctic air and moved to Chicago – Saks Fifth Avenue hired him as a display director and he left there as vice-president of marketing. Eight years ago he chose to warm-up in Mazatlan and in 2011 he opened his gallery, LOOK, with the tag line ‘vintage and modern gallery’. “Every client and every project is different, but typically I prefer a consultation in your home, and if you like my ideas and want to hire me, then I charge an hourly rate.” LOOK reopens on Friday November 4th at 3 p.m., on Romantia de la Peña #29; LOOK will be open on Fridays and Saturdays.
