Inspiriting Interior Designer
Candy Langan grew up in a boat-loving family in Rumson, New Jersey, and has been associated with yachts all her life. Her first job was with Yachting Magazine as the organizer and manager of the company’s premiere events. During the ten years she worked for Yachting, she met and married the yacht designer, Bill Langan.
Candy was hired by New York Yacht Club’s America II syndicate to coordinate donor relations and events, and accompanied Bill to Perth, Australia for the 1987 America’s Cup challenge. Returning to the States, she started her own event planning company and after eight years in the business was asked to plan a party for Meryl Streep. Ms. Streep then invited Candy to be her personal assistant, which is a position she held until Candy and Bill moved their family to Newport, RI in 1997.
A fashion design major in college, Candy found that what she enjoyed most about her work was designing and decorating event spaces. She decided to continue her education and improve her skills by studying interior design at the Rhode Island School of Design. To combine this keen interest in design with her love of the water and strong organizational skills, she opened her own yacht interior decoration company, Candace Langan Design.
In the 15 years since founding her business, Candy has completed all manner of projects for sail and motor yachts, from classic to contemporary styling, new construction or refits. She has also been invited by some of her yacht clients to decorate their homes. She is known for working closely with each of her clients to create spaces that best reflect their individual tastes, needs and desires.
