Hot Talent: Morgan Taylor

Morgan Taylor caught the interior design bug at Liberty University while pursuing a degree in studio art.

“I took electives in 
design and worked on volunteer projects,” 
she relates. “Interior design has always felt like a natural way to express myself.”

Returning to the DC area after college, Taylor took a job with Red House Staging & Interiors, where she had previously interned. “I worked there five years and learned every part of the business,” she notes. “Eventually, 
I wanted to do more permanent installations.”

In 2016, she launched Brass Bones, which currently handles about six projects a year, selecting furniture, art, lighting and finishes, and consulting on bathroom and kitchen makeovers. In the future, she envisions hiring a small staff but maintaining a boutique-style business.

Taylor describes her aesthetic as contemporary eclectic. “I like a juxtaposition of materials and colors that I hope translates to all styles,” she says. “I look for new and unique pieces and try to push my clients’ boundaries. I want to create something for them that they couldn’t have done without me.”
