Martha Mulholland Interior Design is a full service interior design studio that creates environments that are deeply considered, yet effortless.

Founded in 2013 and based in Los Angeles, the studio is led by Principal Martha Mulholland. Born and raised in Kentucky and then educated in art history and historic preservation at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and steeped in modernism after a decade in the city, Martha draws on her deep knowledge of design history for every project. A custodian of that history, she deftly mixes vintage pieces and antiques with specially commissioned contemporary works from her community of makers, artists and craftspeople, arranged together from across discrete styles, eras and cultures to create thoughtfully curated environments that celebrate objects and their stories. Drawing on experience from her career in visual merchandising for Hermès, Gucci, Max Mara and Tom Ford, Martha creates arresting yet restrained vignettes that command the viewer’s attention. Layered together with restful moments, this dichotomy adds depth and character to her interiors.

Martha Mulholland’s clients include filmmakers, fashion designers and artists, who appreciate the studio’s ability to craft a space that serves as a canvas for the creative mind. Martha Mulholland has been featured in Architectural Digest, Domino, C Magazine and The Wall Street Journal. Past projects include residences for clients in fashion, film and television, and retail spaces including the Los Angeles outpost of The Apartment by the Line and Marysia’s New York and Los Angeles showrooms.
