Let's begin something beautiful.
Platemark was founded in 2006 by Craig Tevolitz and Richard Baiano in Boston’s Back Bay and is known for designing interiors with the needs of showcasing artwork in mind. Further and always to the needs of clients, we take a clever approach to dreaming up refined and elegant homes that are exceedingly livable.
We focus on luxury residential and "lightweight" commercial projects, aiming to design spaces that reflect your style.
Our projects include private homes, vacation properties, rural estates, urban town homes and condominiums. In addition to comprehensive interior designs for luxury residences, Platemark has designed retail art gallery spaces.
Selected Best of Boston by Boston Home, Platemark further specializes in helping art collectors — new and seasoned — showcase their artwork and integrating it seamlessly into the interior design. Platemark’s work has been featured in numerous publications and on television, including New England Home, Luxury Interiors, The Wall Street Journal, Design New England, Boston Globe, WCVB and various online features around the world.
Learn more about why we’re named Platemark.
An award-winning interior designer located in Boston's Back Bay, Craig started Platemark Design in 2006, after masterminding a smooth good-bye from a career in financial services. Interior design seemed a natural, welcoming and a rather wise transition. After all, and not surprisingly, he grew up sketching, fascinated with colors, form and proportion and playing out endless furniture combinations in his head like one would in chess.
The new career proved a successful leap, and he went on to decorate all corners of Boston, New England, then the world.
Today, Platemark’s approach is built upon Craig’s conviction that fine design can provoke relaxation, inspire creativity, ignite energy and brighter moods and help clients create uncountable memories. But greater than that, Craig is known for his calming, approachable personality, impeccable attention to detail and anticipating clients’ needs before they know they need them.
Craig is a long-time leader in Boston's arts community, and most passionately at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He is an elected Advisor, serves on the Patron Committee and is former chair of the Museum Council Steering Committee. He and his husband Richard Baiano, owner of Childs Gallery, live in Back Bay with their two dogs, Maude and Babs. His interior design studio is on Newbury Street.
Elizabeth McCann joined Platemark in 2018 after completing her studies at Dublin Institute of Design in Dublin, Ireland. Before Elizabeth became an interior designer, she was a writer and editor for various publications, including luxury lifestyle magazines and newspapers, and regularly covered home design, style and luxury real estate. As a designer, it is of the utmost importance to her that every project tells the visual story of each client’s personal taste and style.
A long-time member of the Junior League, Elizabeth is currently a sustainer in the Junior League of Rhode Island, and has been a sustainer in the Junior League of Boston, during which she served on the board as well as on the Junior League of Boston Showhouse committee. She and her husband divide their time between Boston, Nantucket and Newport, RI.
