Ex- society interior decorator, Eleanor McMillen Brown

Brown, Eleanor McMillen (1890 – 1991) interior decorator; born in St. Louis, Mo. After design study in New York and Paris, in 1924 she opened the first U.S. full-service interior decoration firm, McMillen, Inc. The timeless quality of her designs came from a canny mixing of classical revival styles, attention to architectural detail, and good scale. A 1952 Légion d'Honneur for promoting modern French furniture highlighted a successful career of some 60 years.
