 About Emlyn

headshot - Ashphalt JungleBorn and raised in Washington DC, Emlyn grew up in the world of fine art – her father an accomplished artist and her brother a custom furniture designer and artist.  These creative forces inspired her to switch careers and go to design school. She attended the Corcoran School of Art and Design in Washington, DC and she has been designing ever since.  Emlyn recently branched out on her own forming Emlyn Interiors,LLC.  She remains dedicated to working with any budget to create beautiful and functional spaces.




“I have hired designers in the past but have never been satisfied with the experience. Either the designer pushed her vision on me or deviated from the plan and budget. My experience with  Emlyn was completely different. 

- Lynne G, Potomac, MD

Emlyn was absolutely invaluable in my recent project to redo the living room, dining room and kitchen of my house.
