Growing up in Springfield, Missouri, after the death of her mother, Principal Interior Designer and owner Marissa Whitley Tago was a shy yet active child whose entrepreneurial spirit quickly evolved from venturing door-to-door with fundraising for school activities to organizing closets, asking about heirlooms and creating more livable spaces for her elderly neighbors. Raised by her Aunt Cynthia, Marissa discovered a sense of purpose in helping those around her. That passion became the thread that helped define her journey through life, always making spaces she lived and worked in, better than when she found them. The connection she felt and the passion she found helping those around her create layered spaces that highlighted each person's life was what fueled her as she moved across the country in her 20's. Fast forward to December of 2016, Marissa graduated with honors with her Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design and with three small children and Navy family (her husband Nick was a Nuclear Mechanic in the Navy when they met), quickly decided to start The Whitley Co. in January of 2017 for the freedom and flexible needed. Today, Marissa balances home with work taking on projects she believes in regardless of the location, size or budget.

Guiding her clients and creating a more luxe and livable space is truly what Marissa loves. 

We are here to help motivate and inspire spaces that make you happy. Allow us to listen to you, share ideas and collaborate with you to make your space a true reflection of your life. From unique one-of-a-kind furniture + decor selections to refreshing your space using what you have collected, our goal is to rethink, re-purpose and realize a layered + dynamic space that you love to live, work, teach, entertain + lounge in. 
Need help deciding on what package works best, please email us to discuss your project and design dreams. Let's create a space that you are proud of that is a true reflection of who you are and what matters most to you.
