In this episode I interview Maureen Mahon, an award-winning interior designer in Los Angeles.
Maureen is a designer on HGTV’s House Hunters Renovation and was named one of Angeleno Modern Luxury Magazine’s Dynamic Women of Los Angeles.
She began her foray into home renovation when she bought a dilapidated duplex near Los Angeles’ trendy Melrose Avenue and did much of the remodeling work herself. She later sold the house for nearly four times what she’d paid and invested in an ocean-front property in Rosarito, Mexico. She and her brother purchased all the furniture and accessories for the 3,000 sq. ft. luxury condo from Thailand, and the home was featured in Distinctive Homes Magazine.
After being commissioned to decorate several turnkey oceanfront vacation properties in Baja, Maureen decided to make interior design her new career and attended the Architectural Interior Design Program at Santa Monica College.
Maureen worked almost exclusively on residential projects in LA until being hired to design offices for a tech startup. This experience completely changed her career path, resulting in her working with visionary entrepreneurs to create green, sustainable, ethically sourced and cruelty-free work environments.
She is the first PETA-approved vegan designer and has incorporated vegan design into her company’s code of ethics.
In this interview Maureen talks about:
• What made her become a vegan interior designer and how it’s impacted her business
• Why interior design is important for a business
• Key things to consider when planning the interior design of a commercial premises – and how they differ from residential spaces
• Latest trends in commercial interior design
• The best type of lighting for commercial spaces
• And much more
