Colleen Crawley

Senior Project Designer

Motawi Senior Designer Colleen Crawley has been an integral part of the company since her arrival in 2000. She is a graduate of the University of Detroit earning a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture. When she joined Motawi, she brought 15 years of experience as a licensed architect, with a focus on corporate interiors. Colleen and her husband have lived in Detroit, Los Angeles and Chicago before settling in Ann Arbor to raise their daughter.

Colleen's favorite thing about working at Motawi is the creative freedom that she says she gets to enjoy. Many of the customers encourage our design team to try something new, and despite having done hundreds of fireplace projects, Colleen says the process always feels fresh.

Her favorite assignment is actually a series of projects done for a couple in Texas. They bought an old home about an hour outside of Dallas that they were renovating and restoring, and they hired Colleen to design their kitchen backsplash, fireplace, sunroom floor and foyer floor – each unique but all of them tied together and to the home. What a dream couple and an ideal project! 

Colleen loves to travel and has been all over the globe, but her heart belongs to Michigan.
