martin morales
owner and principal designer

Martin received his Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture, graduating at the top of his class from USC where he was awarded the distinguished traveling fellowship that took him to Spain.  He also landed a prestigious design internship with Albert C. Martin & Associates, where he gained hands-on experience being part of design teams on some of Los Angeles’ most recognizable high rises. 

In 2001 with over 15 years of experience working with design firms throughout the Los Angeles area as an interior designer, Martin and his husband, Ben Vargas, organized and opened the design firm ”Diseno, LLC.” Diseno is Spanish for design.  Since then Diseno has generated an impressive body of work. Martin was also awarded “Designer of the Year” in 2004 from the Los Angeles Furniture Mart and has been featured on “Tricks of the Trade” for the Lifestyle network. 

Martin's ability to listen, attention to detail and innate talent with colors allows him to design spaces that are unique and timeless.  His inherent aesthetic sense allows him to create design concepts that include the client’s needs, style, budget and time constraints. Martin's ability to use different design styles allows him to draw inspiration from many areas.

In addition, Martin has also been fortunate enough to combine his passion for design and theatre.  He has worked as an art director, set designer and prop master for films, theatre and television.  Regardless of the type of design project Diseno, LLC has been given, it is our passion and dedication that drives us to give our clients the best personal and unique design solutions. When a client is told, “We love your home” and not, “Who did  your home?” then we know we have succeeded.
