When you can do what you love doing with the person you love, why wouldn’t you do that?
Hello – we’re Scott Marks and Emily Hughes.
It has been a life-long dream of ours to open this shop.
It’s not for the love of money or for the love of business. It’s for a love for what we’re doing. We love home interiors.
I (Emily) have been an Interior Designer for 20 years. I (Scott) been in the furniture business since I was 17 years old.
We had always talked about opening our own open shop and finally reached a point where we were ready. It was a perfect opportunity and a perfect location. We live in North Liberty and love this community. We knew this is exactly where we wanted our shop to be.
We want to give people a fun place to shop for gifts and for their homes.
We named our store Mix Home Mercantile because we want to offer a mix of styles and a mix of price points. We want to show people you don’t have to buy all new things. You can bring in your older elements and mix them with new items and make your space look absolutely beautiful.
Sometimes we have clients that come in and want some design help. They might want some overall interior design plan that they can work on over a period of years. You don’t have to do everything at once if your budget doesn’t allow for that. We also work with clients who are doing full-scope projects such as new construction and assist them with all the finishes and furniture to go in the house. We also work with clients who are remodeling and looking to update the look of just one or two rooms or want help selecting a few furniture pieces.
Why should you choose us?
We hope you come in and feel a connection with us and feel a connection with our store and products. We constantly updating our showroom so there is always a reason for you to come in, and we have a great combination of knowledge of furniture and interior design.
Come in and visit us, we would love to meet you.
Let's Work Together
Good design takes time! We value all of our clients, past, present and future. Please note that due to high demand, we currently have a 45-60 day waitlist for new clients.
The first step for new clients is to fill out this form. Once submitted, we will send you a link to our new client questionnaire.
Once you've completed the new client questionnaire, we will review your answers and be in touch within 45-60 days to schedule our initial meeting at your home. This first meeting has a flat fee of $150 and is an information-gathering session. We meet you, measure your space, take photos, review your design needs and any architectural or builder blueprints that may be available, along with your saved design inspiration images.
Following that meeting, we will be in touch with an interior design proposal that addresses your project scope and will request a deposit for design services to get your project started.
