Behind the Scenes

Cheers to 10 Years of Marcia Moore Design

More than 30 years ago, I decided to follow my passion and become an interior designer. Ten years ago I decided to make my business official, and in 2008, Marcia Moore Design was born.

Design has been in my soul for as long as I can remember. It never leaves my mind. I’m always creating–in my sleep, in the shower, while I’m driving–I never stop. Starting Marcia Moore Design was a dream come true for me. From my first ever award-winning kitchen in 2008 to being named to Town and Style magazine’s 2018 Top 100 in Home Design and Decor, the past 10 years have been exceptionally rewarding.



Here are a few award-winning highlights…

Award-Winning Kitchen Design

From dated and cramped, to modern and open, this kitchen redo was my very first award-winner after starting Marcia Moore Design in 2008, and it looks as fresh today as it did back then. Just goes to prove that good design can stand the test of time. After photo by Sarah Carmody

Small kitchens don’t have to be white! Light wood keeps this space airy, and tight space solutions, such as the freestanding island/chopping board/wine rack, are functional and stylish. Photo by Matt Hughes

Award-Winning Dining Room Design
