Welcome to Milieu Design Group.

Margaret L. Norcott, Allied ASID founded her firm, MDG, on creating unique environments that have a timeless aesthetic. This is accomplished by mixing different styles with items that are very old and architectural in nature. “Balance, in every element that goes into a space, is the magic key to unlocking the beauty in each project,” Margaret says. MDG prides itself that each client’s project has a look of its own.

Margaret’s philosophy: “Each client, and their design style, should be the focus of their project. Clients come into the design process uncertain of the results they will achieve, and it’s their style that should be the watermark on the lovely image we created together. Our firm is simply the catalyst that makes their dreams become a reality.”

Principal, Margaret L. Norcott, Allied ASID earned her Bachelor of Design from the College of Architecture, School of Interior Design at the University of Florida in 1993. She interned each summer in Miami, Florida for Jeff Howard & Associates working on such projects as Costa Cruise Ships to Ray Floyd’s home. Post graduation, Margaret worked for Bermello, Ajamil & Partners in Coconut Grove, Florida. There, she had the pleasure of working projects such as Dolphin Cruise Ships Terminal to Four Eyes Optical Corporate Offices and more. Margaret moved to Atlanta in 1994, and worked for Amtico International as their Lead CAD/CAM Designer, until starting Milieu Design Group, Inc. in 1996.

Testimonials

“Margaret Norcott was extremely helpful in that she changed a spec house to suit our tastes. She made it comfortable and inviting to nearby friends and family. She listened to our ideas and interpreted them into arrangements that looked great and still reflected our personalities. She was lovely to work with and I recommend her to anybody as she is very capable.”

~George & Ann M. (Alpharetta, GA)

“When I was informed that as the Heards Ferry media specialist that I would have a significant sum to update the school’s media center, I was thrilled….and overwhelmed.  Being responsible for a space measuring approximately 4000 square feet and having to create an atmosphere that would cater to children from 4 to 12 meant our choices couldn’t be too babyish or too gender specific.  We wanted to create a welcoming environment that would encourage our students to discover and enjoy reading and learning.  We wanted an overall look and feel, but also wanted to create spaces where a student could nestle up with a book and get cozy.”
“What a blessing to have Margaret Norcott, Allied ASID as a parent in our school, who came on board as our Interior Designer.  She listened to our needs and devised a plan, a color scheme and directed our choices in furniture, fabrics and layout.  After her magic touch, our space became much less institutional and dated, and became the cool, go-to, crown jewel of the school.  Margaret is incredibly talented and the Heards Ferry Elementary School community is thrilled with the results of her artistry and effort.”
