Marlo is a North London-based interior design studio, founded by Maria Marinos and Lowri Story who share a combined interest in design, art and architecture. We specialise in residential and commercial projects with an emphasis on high quality and authentic materials. 

What we do

We offer a highly personalised approach, collaborating closely with our clients to tailor each project to suit their needs. Projects range from restyling and adding to an existing room through to a full interior design service. We research extensively, drawing on our in-depth knowledge, to source all elements for the project. We have relationships both with established brands and with individual craftsmen, makers and artists. 




We work closely with a number of gallerists and dealers to source unique pieces to complement the interior design. 


Working with Marlo on improvements to our sitting room has been really fun.  Lowri and Maria took great trouble to understand our style preferences and how we want to use the space, working to introduce changes incrementally rather than imposing a grand revamp. They were organised, practical and collaborative, and their suggestions always included a range of price options.  I'd wholeheartedly recommend their service. Homeowner, Canonbury 

I retained Marlo to help with my new room in a set of barristers’ chambers in The Temple.  The brief, in a listed 18th century building, was essentially to obtain an authentic period feel, with some modern twists, in what also had to be a functional working environment.  Lowri and Maria grasped the essential point of the project immediately and had brilliant practical and aesthetic ideas for completing it.  They have a great ability to find and work with trades and in sourcing items to create a look — whether the perfect library steps, a beautiful oversized writing table, just the right lights for the right spaces, or lovely and sometimes obscure fabrics.  They were also comfortable with the creative tension created by dialogue and in re-formulating aspects of their proposals to meet client objectives and changes of mind.  They pay great attention to detail and have a way of working with and refreshing furniture and other items you wish to keep.  They were a real pleasure to work with throughout the project and they were always ultra-reliable.  I have ended up with an uplifting space I love to spend time in, with beautiful furniture, colours and fabrics completing the room.

I can thoroughly recommend working with MARLO as interior designers. They invested a great deal of time in getting to know me and have captured my personality very artistically throughout the property. Not only have they made it look beautiful, but they have made it feel more of a home for my children and I. Maria and Lowri are a delight to work with, and I have genuinely looked forward to seeing each stage as it has developed. Homeowner, Bloomsbury
