Thomas Halstead is the principal designer at THOMAS HALSTEAD DESIGNS, a full-service boutique Interior Designer Company. Based in Los Angeles, Thomas markedly serves the needs of discreet and discerning clientele. My approach to designing for a client is to pay very close attention to every detail. I love to create warm, inviting, and functional environments by employing unique textures and finishes, integrating natural and artificial light, while applying innovative methods to incorporate distinctive furnishings to fulfill my client’s vision.


A native of Philadelphia, I began my artistic endeavors at age 15 as a dancer.  It awarded me numerous scholarships to the Pennsylvania Ballet, the Darvash School, and the Juilliard School in New York, where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. While at Julliard, I gained hands-on experience in set design. In 2007,  I completed the 2 year Interior Architectural Design Program at  Santa Monica College of Art, Entertainment, and Technology for Interior Architectural Design. My career quickly flourished and have worked on properties from La Quinta to Beverly Park.

Thomas' expertise in defining style of comfort to city loft living is appreciated! Thomas applied warm functionality with unique modern crystal lighting, custom leather seating/storage, and wall mount fireplaces.  From listening to my mode of living, Thomas’  crews implemented his genteel design in patterns and colors for both indoor & outdoor spaces.  Budget concerns were always within guidelines. Thomas Halstead has met high expectations and integrity of services

                                                                                     Thank you Thomas, J.C..

Thomas has an incredible eye for detail and design. His feedback, thoughtfulness, creativity and follow-through make him invaluable when designing a space to your needs. I highly recommend him.

Thomas Halstead is THE BEST!


When we moved to Marina del Rey 6 years ago from Texas we knew absolutely no one. Our real estate agent recommended Thomas Halstead, probably the greatest recommendation we've ever received. Not only did Thomas handle all our interior design needs, but he also introduced us to a great contractor and supervised all of our remodel process personally. He was professional every step of the way, always kept our budget in mind, and made sure our finished product was "our" style as opposed to some designers who are set on it being "their" style. To this day we contact Thomas for any, and every, interior need. We were so happy working with him that we acquired his services for our second home in La Quinta! Once again he didn't disappoint and did a phenomenal job. I can't imagine him ever having an unhappy client.

I highly recommend Thomas Halstead for any interior design projects. He has a great attitude, and he does his homework.  I felt he went the extra mile to listen to what I as a client, was expressing and to present me with options. He has a vast knowledge of design and great contacts. I am a film director and I can be demanding and Thomas always impressed me with his presentations and his follow-through. He is always conscious of the budget and is very solution oriented. Not only does he have impeccable taste, he has a great personality and makes the experience fun. The most important thing I liked about working with Thomas is the fact that he is flexible. I never felt resistance or that I was being nickel and dimed . His estimates were accurate and not over the top. We remodeled my loft in Hollywood and the end result was spectacular. I rent it furnished for top dollar. Everyone loves the way it’s decorated. It’s a success.
