About Us

Our clients inspire us daily and it is our true privilege to design the homes that support their amazing lives. Some of our favorite clients have included kick-ass hollywood producers passionate about bringing female voices to the silver screen, female founders, charitable women who give freely of their time and money, stay at home moms who teach their children values of kindness and generosity, working moms who get up early to enjoy baking in their gorgeous kitchens or crushing it on the peloton.

Our Values

Collaboration

We believe in community, not competition. We are all in this together. There is power in an abundance mindset; there's plenty to go around!

No Haziness

We keep it clear and transparent. Our pricing is fair, so you can create the home of your dreams on time and on budget.

High Standards

We constantly ask ourselves, are we doing the best we possibly can for our clients? Did the client get the best possible result?

Function AND Beauty

Your home will invite your loved ones in and they will be able to sit wherever they want. Kids, pets, and drunk uncles are always welcome!

Diversity

We understand that each individual is unique, recognizing our individual differences and quirks. We are a female-led, lesbian owned small business.

Our Vision

A Northern California native, interior designer Melanie Coddington founded Coddington Design in 2005. A full-service interior design firm, Coddington Design has become one of the most trusted interior design firms on the West Coast servicing a select clientele from Palo Alto to Los Angeles.

With studios in both San Francisco and Los Angeles, Melanie brings livable luxury to every project she touches. Whether it’s a residential remodel or a ground-up build, Coddington Design oversees projects from conception to installation. Collaborating closely with architects, builders, and landscape designers, Melanie and her team of interior designers bring a firm understanding of space planning and the latest innovations in technology to every project. Known for her warm personality and collaborative spirit, Melanie tailors the individual needs of her clients while addressing space, style, and functionality. Her goal, she says, for every project is to realize the vision of the homeowner. “My job is done when they come home to something that truly reflects them and how they live,” says Melanie.
