Moss Interior – Shaking up the design industry.

Designing or remodeling your own space? We’re shaking up the interior design industry.

Thanks to platforms like HGTV, HOUZZ, Pinterest, Youtube and styling Blogs it is easier than ever to design on your own.

 “I know what I like when I see it”.

I hear this from almost everyone I encounter. How do you choose the right light fixture when there are literally thousands to choose from? The industry is changing  and I want to empower you by providing the right resources to complete projects on your own.


Design is addicting to some of us. I assume if you are reading this you are one of the many who either appreciate it on some level or need it in your life like you need tacos on Tuesday. I am one of those people. I see design in everything.


Welcome to the blog of MOSS. My name is Marisha and I am the owner of MOSS interior co – an Interior Architecture and Design Firm. I have been full time in the industry since 1997. I have owned two firms in two States. The first, in Denver, where I was Owner/Partner for 10 years. I started my second Firm in Seattle in 2011 which I still own and operate to this day, MOSS.

If you want to know more about me and my backstory click here (insert Bio link)    


I consider MOSS a Boutique Design Firm. It’s just me and I am very proud of that. I never understand when small studios hide the fact that they are small.  When you work directly with the owner of a company you get a different level of service and care.  I choose my clients and projects as carefully as they choose me and I think that creates powerful partnerships.


So why the Blog and why now?


I have been doing this for a long time and I have a lot to offer. I have been successful and I have made mistakes. I want to share all of that with you. Too many times to count I have received 911-design calls from Family, friends and future clients desperately looking for help on a DIY project gone wrong. I see it all the time. Sometimes after the fact, which is more than unfortunate. I can spot a do-it-yourself (DIY) design job within seconds. I call it “Diy-dar”.


Did you ever sit at a counter somewhere and the stools felt “off” (too high – or too low)? Well, that isn’t due to the stool.


Beware the HGTV degree


There is nothing wrong with anyone trying to tackle a remodel or design project on their own – if you know what you are doing.  Some people simply cannot afford to hire a designer.  Some people may not find one in their area or find one they like. And some people just love design and want to do it themselves. Whatever the reason you have come to the right place.


No matter how much HGTV you have watched you WILL make mistakes and you will make many. I am here to  make sure we minimize those mistakes BEFORE they happen.  Think of all the extra things you can do and buy if you don’t have to fix this
