Natalie graduated from Auburn University’s CIDA-accredited Interior Design program in 2004 with a minor in Marketing. Newly married, Natalie and her husband Stephen moved to Montgomery, AL where she took a position at local award-winning architect firm Seay Seay and Litchfield. Natalie’s years spent with SS&L helped strengthen her skills as an interior designer and magnified her love of architecture, with a focus on project management and creating construction documents full of special and unique details that don’t just create but enhance the true function and structure of a home.
New job opportunities for Stephen brought the Roes back to their hometown of Mobile where Natalie continued to work remotely for SS&L, overseeing their local commercial projects as well as bringing new residential projects to the firm. After welcoming their first child Bennett in December of 2007, Natalie formed Natalie Roe Interior Design so she could continue working in the field she loved but still be available to stay home and nurture her first love: motherhood. Over the next eight years Natalie and Stephen welcomed daughter Emory and son Jacob in quick succession, and Natalie learned to balance her growing family with her quickly growing beloved home-based business.
When Rachel announced in late 2015 that they, too, were moving back to Mobile, the sisters made their much-discussed dream a reality as Rachel slowly began working with Natalie on her current projects. Fast forward to the fall of 2016 when Natalie decided to finally call about the abandoned building she had been day dreaming over all those years as she drove by, taking her children to and from school. With the ever increasing demand of upcoming projects and the prospect of a studio and a partnership driving them, in the early summer of 2017 March + May Design was born.
Natalie brings with her an extensive background in and passion for the marriage of structure and space, a unique attention to detail, an ability to work closely with and coordinate all aspects of the construction process, and a special focus on livability without sacrificing her clean and classic style. After a lengthy renovation of their own home, Natalie resides with her husband Stephen and their three children Bennett, Emory and Jacob. In her spare time Natalie can be found tending her garden, cooking, reading, running, writing, and spending time on the water with her family.
