Brian Carlson


I have enjoyed an interior design career in Los Angeles since 1987. In that time, I have had the privilege of watching clients’ lives transform in response to their environment. My interior design career informed my choice to take a sabbatical to attain my master’s degree in psychology ( The infusion of design and psychology bridges my experiences, balancing my creative self with my curiosity in the human spirit. 

With 20 years of relationship building within the design community, my education in psychology and experience as a practicing therapist, I can offer my client’s more than a pretty room.  I am able to assess your lifestyle and design goals though a unique lens that will offer you an expanded relationship with your environment and your Self.

My work is concentrated in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills and Santa Barbara, as well as Chicago, Las Vegas and Palm Springs.
