Portrait of David Desmond
David Desmond began his design practice in Los Angeles in 2000. Over the past 23 years, he has designed the interiors of historic homes, beach houses, city apartments and iconic estates. His projects span the United States, Europe and Asia. David works closely with his clients to create interiors that are deeply personal and one of a kind.
