We’re connoisseurs of colorfully curated, livable luxury.

Approaching each project with a uniquely fresh perspective, we carefully consider all parameters and opportunities before developing a cohesive design concept, specifically tailored to serve an interiors’s most ideal function and aesthetic. Since we believe that exceptional design is both soulful and personal, our interiors are inspired by the very best of our clients and their homes. 

As a full-service firm, we believe that every detail of an interior should be pretty - including each step of the design process. Through conscious curation and expert execution, we work to make the entire experience an exciting one for our clients.

Since its inception in 2014, the firm has received a number of editorial mentions and accolades for outstanding residential work. We’re known across the industry for our elevated, color-soaked style and unpretentious, inviting glamour.

 

Caitlin Murray, Founder & CEO

Forever an enthusiast for living well, Caitlin’s eclectic personal style is a manifestation of modern sensibilities and an homage to distinctive design from decades past. After building a comprehensive career in the industry with top influencers including House of Honey and MASH Studios, she launched and co-founded her first design firm in 2012 before conceiving of BLD soon after.

Her distinctive sense of color has earned her a reputation in the industry for distinctively daring interiors that are equal parts whimsical irreverence and polished chic. A born synesthete, her uncanny experience of hue is at the heart of all her work. Though every project inspires a completely unique concept, each of her interiors feels simultaneously playful, glamorous, and cozy. With her approachable and unpretentious perspective, she even makes the whole process seem kind of effortless.

Caitlin grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana with the object obsession and precocious knack for arrangement that later evolved into a love for all things design. She earned a B.A. in journalism and art history from Indiana University followed by a degree in interior design from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. She currently lives in Los Angeles in a 1920s era Spanish-style abode with her husband, a large collection of whimsical vintage artwork and a cocker spaniel named Color (of course).

Laura Fairly, Production Director

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Laura is casual and easygoing while still meticulous in attending to the details and fine-tuning organizational systems. She works closely with Caitlin to ensure that every project is executed flawlessly and is never daunted by a challenge. She received her B.A. in English from U.C. Berkeley and has nine years of experience driving projects and communications. The daughter of a furniture designer, interior design was a natural extension of her inherited interest in furniture fabrication and restoration. If she isn't in the office, you can find her hiking with her dog or cozying up with a book. Rest assured, though, she definitely won't be cooking you anything.

Elsie Garcia, Studio Coordinator

Our resident woman of many hats and an L.A. native, Elsie might be our newest team member but you wouldn’t know it from how essential she’s already become. She has ten years of experience coordinating production for major manufacturing companies in her back pocket, and brings her impeccable diligence and no-stone-left-unturned thinking to our studio. With her conscientious management of our studio, she has quickly turned us into a greener, more efficient firm. When she's not coordinating the brass tacks for our team, she's either gardening, salsa dancing, or thrifting.
