Jodi Macklin is known for her original approach to design, which deftly combines texture and color to create elegant, harmonious spaces. Her work reflects her clients’ lifestyles, employing luxurious materials and furnishings that are lovely, functional and easy to maintain—an influence, she says, that dates from her background in hospitality and travel. With her partner, Lauren Sparber, Macklin designs interior spaces that convey beauty in isolation and warmth when they are filled with family and friends.

“We approach each project holistically,” the designer explains. “We listen carefully to our clients and work hard to gain an understanding of their needs and wants. We do this by maintaining an open dialogue—and we strive to manage expectations throughout each project.”

Macklin is equally skilled at interpreting a client’s wishes for an intimate bedroom or a sophisticated living room, and consistently translates each vision into a beautiful, livable environment. “With 20-plus years of experience in the industry, I understand that each client is unique,” she observes. “Everyone requires their own approach for success.”

Projects by Jodi Macklin Interior Design have been published locally in Home & Design, Washingtonian and The Washington Post. Macklin’s work has also appeared nationally in House Beautiful and Southern Living.
