A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Molly Luetkemeyer had the opportunity to live in a number of cities (San Francisco and New York among them) before coming to Los Angeles while working on a film with director Mike Nichols. The moment she stepped off the plane, Luetkemeyer knew she was here to stay. She was captivated by the bright California sunshine, the burgeoning art scene, the casual glamour of the homes and the proximity to the natural world. When the film wrapped, she immediately found a light and airy apartment and enrolled in the prestigious Interior Design program at UCLA. While there, Luetkemeyer augmented her class work with on the job experience with renowned designers, Kelly Wearstler and Antonia Hutt. She is grateful to have been inspired by, and learned from, such diverse and talented women. Luetkemeyer launched M. Design Interiors in 2001 and was fortunate to hit the ground running. Since then, she has garnered national recognition for her work and has been featured in numerous publications, on television and across the blogosphere.
