A native of Kansas City, MARSHALL WATSON was favored by Midwestern hospitality, generosity and humor. His family’s appreciation for architecture, design, art, music, history, civic service and sportsmanship, steered his path.
Watson received his BA from Stanford University. There, he was taught to leave no moment unexplored, nor unchallenged as he focused on the interpretive art of design. While pursuing a master’s degree in theater design at Brandeis, Watson designed sets, costumes, and lighting.
Watson founded his design firm, Marshall Watson Interiors in 1986. His robust awareness of periods and styles enables him the flexibility to immerse himself in a range of projects. A subtle blend of transatlantic and American design philosophies suffuses his work. Classic is his hallmark.
Throughout Watson’s career, his work has graced the covers of and been frequently featured in many shelter publications, notably Architectural Digest, Veranda, House Beautiful, Luxe, House and Garden, Traditional Homes, Hamptons Cottages and Gardens and the New York Times. He has also been featured in New York Spaces, Metropolitan Home, The Chicago Tribune, as well as being a regular design columnist for the Southampton Press.
Marshall resides in Manhattan, and spends weekends at his home in East Hampton.
