Mallery Roberts Morgan is a Los Angeles-based designer and writer. She is the Los Angeles correspondent of AD France and a contributing editor of Architectural Digest (AD).
Mallery has been designing interiors for the past fifteen years. It began when she was asked by a renowned Parisian interior designer to advise clients on collecting important design pieces. What started as a consultancy evolved to be Mallery’s own interior design practice – first based in Paris and London – and since 2008 in Los Angeles.
At the heart of all of her interior design projects is her work as a design curator. “In 40 years when my clients’ children are selling their parents furniture, I want it to go to Wright, Christie’s or Sotheby’s. Not because everything represents the most expensive or rare, all my interiors are a mix of both high and low, but because every piece – however great or small – has some part of the story of design history.”
Mallery has designed a variety of residential interiors including several projects in London from an historic house on Cheyne Walk to the complete renovation and design of a high-rise penthouse on the Thames, and a single-family Notting Hill home. Mallery also designed the private dining room of a well-known West London Asian-fusion eatery. Her Paris projects include a single-family home in the outskirts of Paris, and several Paris apartment interiors. She designed the complete renovation and interiors of a villa in Costa Careyes, Mexico and has worked on interior design renovations in New York City.
Recent projects include a 8,000 square feet residential interior in Beverly Hills, an apartment in the iconic Sierra Towers building of West Hollywood, a juice bar and vegan restaurant in Paris, France called Maisie Café.
Mallery’s unique expertise in design was attained living and working in Paris including at Paris Vogue and as a regular contributor to The New York Times, British Elle Decoration and Marie Claire Maison.
Currently she is the Los Angeles correspondent of AD France and a contributing editor of Architectural Digest.
Past Perfect: Richard Shapiro House & Gardens, which Mallery edited, was published by Rizzoli in March 2016.
Mallery was the co-curator of DIEM: Talks Design, a Los Angeles design symposium offering culturally resonating discussions involving leaders in architecture, contemporary and decorative art, design and fashion, in partnership with the West Hollywood Design District, and media sponsors AD (US), KCRW, LALA Magazine.
