Our design process is one of excavation rather than insertion. We believe that each individual space emits a singular resonance and through the conscientious mining of inspirations, traditions, precedents and perspectives it can be tuned to reveal the finest parts of itself.

BIOGRAPHY

Marc Houston Lifestyle & Interiors [MHLI]
is helmed by creative director and principal
Marc Houston who launched his studio after
working for a number of acclaimed London and
NYC firms. Drawing on 17 years of interior, lighting
and furniture design experience, Marc approaches
each commission as an organic, collaborative
process informed by rigorous research and
perpetual refinement. 

Guided by an emphasis on precision,
craftsmanship, architectural detailing,
atmospheric calibration and material
experimentation, he seeks to explore
spatial and aesthetic solutions that artfully
balance utility with fantasy, eccentricity
with sensuality and sophistication with ease. 

Unbound by formula, period or trend and
compelled by a global pursuit of the rare and
distinctive, Marc employs a thoughtful amalgam
of vintage, contemporary and custom elements
to craft enriching, immersive, transportive
narratives that bolster each client’s unique
program while conveying confidence and control.

MHLI’s portfolio includes numerous residential
and commercial projects in NYC, Boston,
Pennsylvania and Washington, DC, and has
appeared in DEPARTURES, New York Magazine, Rue,
Boston Home
and New York Cottages & Gardens 
who in 2019 named him a Rising Star.
