He has also appeared numerous times on Extra, Access Hollywood, Eye on LA and NBC’s Open House.

He and his business partner, fellow designer, Raul Lamelas have been working together for the last 15 years. Lamelas, born in Cuba adds a fashionable eye to the design aesthetic at MLD and specialises in the fine details and finishing touches.

Currently residing in Los Angeles, British designer, Mark Liddell has expanded his focus from photography to designing interiors of luxury homes in California. Having lived in several major cities across the globe, including Milan, London, New York, and Sydney, his design is characterized by a sophisticated and international “world eclectic” look. He is now designing interiors of million dollar homes—from London to the Hollywood Hills, Los Feliz to Pasadena, and La Canada to Beverly Hills. Liddell was the design consultant booked by the owners of the 2016 Pasadena Showcase House, in order to achieve a greater synergy and a more cohesive design aesthetic in the historic home.


The house is a work of art. The open concept design with the brand-new (and top quality) kitchen is breathtaking. The three new bathrooms are 5-star hotel quality. Everything is perfect in every way. The team of MLD  exceeded our expectations  The highest compliment I can pay you is that you literally made our dreams come true! Thank you for treating us so kindly and respectfully. The communication we had with you  made the project so smooth and stress-free for us I can’t thank you enough.

We contacted Mark and his team because we wanted to transform part of our LA office into a showroom. “Transform” is really putting it lightly. We needed a miracle – the space that we were allotting to the project was so horrific that I almost didn’t even think the project was possible. Mark put those fears to rest immediately and had a vision for the space from day one. Once we moved ahead, his team got everything done faster than I ever thought possible. The project was completed at cost and ahead of schedule; the results were better than we ever could have hoped!

 Mark is my “go to” designer-whether the space is residential, commercial, or an investment. Liddell Design delivers professional, practical, and beautiful design services every time. Mark does what every great designer should-he listens and understands what his clients want. Just as important, he’s not afraid to tell them what they don’t want to hear!

Mark and Raul managed all the details of our major remodel from planning to supervising our contractor to furnishing, and made it an easy stress-free process with beautiful results! 

What a pleasure it is to work with the team at MLD Design! They are honest, easy to work with, budget conscious, and make sure quality work is completed on time. The team has great vision and are up-to-date with the current trends of home design. It is very evident they love what they do!

Mark and Raul brought our dream house to life! We felt at ease throughout the process knowing how much we trusted their artistic vision and expertise. They patiently guided us through so many decisions and really captured our style. We are thrilled with the results.

Thank you for your excellent advice regarding preparing our property for sale. We had an excellent immediate response, got a bidding war and got a price over asking. We are very grateful.

We worked with MLD to get one house ready to sell and the next house ready for us to move in. Both times the vision was clear – for the house to sell, they added high impact changes in order to have the house sell quickly – and it did! For the house we bought, they helped us maximize space and choose furniture and finishing touches. We were thrilled both times!
