Margie McCulloch, owner/designer

Margie is the chief creative and driving force behind Red Pepper. She comes to design with a BFA from the University of Cincinnati in Photography and Printmaking and a naturally mechanical mind. In 1997 she began renovating troubled homes and reselling them which caught the attention of realtors who then asked her to do projects for them. There was no turning back. 

She brings to her clients an understanding of the real value of their home.  As an artist she has an eye for composition, as a mother she understands how families use their home and the kitchen specifically. We look at the entire space surrounding the kitchen  since cooking is only one of the kitchen's functions. Whether serving one person or a large family, we want your home to fit you like a custom made shoe: beautiful, functional and comfortable."

Margie created Red Pepper Kitchen+Bath in 2003.

Pyper came to Red Pepper in 2016 with a background in the architectural drafting and design. She had previously worked in several high end architectural firms and kitchen design studios in New York and Denver. She received an Associates degree from the New York School of Interior Design in 2014. Prior to working in the design field she graduated from the NASCAR Technical Institute in North Carolina and was one of two women working in the pit crew at NASCAR races- changing two rear tires in 13 seconds!
