About Us

In many ways, designing an interior is very much like assembling a puzzle. The overall look and feel are not determined by the individual pieces in isolation, but rather the combination of thoughtfully selected elements incorporated into a well articulated context. To this end, we universally employ a body of guiding principles which are fundamental to creating extraordinary spaces under any circumstance regardless of whether the client's style is traditional, eclectic, rustic or modern.

Ty Larkins Interiors is a full service interior design firm specializing in high end residential and commercial hospitality projects. Our design approach is "livable elegant modern" for how we live today. We emphasize mixing antiques, vintage and new modern clean lined pieces in a sophisticated, unpredictable yet harmonious way.
