DESIGN STUDIO

Todd Martz, who founded Home on Cameron in 2017 with Susan Nelson, now manages the design studio and decor shop. With more than 20 years experience in the design industry, Todd, plus his team of experts, work closely with clients to create distinctive interior environments. 

Todd Martz
Owner/Principal Designer

With more than 20 years in the interior design industry, Todd started out as a graphic designer before pursuing interior design. While attending design school at the University of Maryland, he worked for a commercial architectural firm and later owned a decorative-painting company where he mastered the art of using color.

Todd then became an owner of AmericanEye in the Washington Design Center. He considers his years at AmericanEye as his Master’s program where he worked with top designers and broadened his knowledge of furniture styles.

Todd has expertise in all aspects of interior design with a talent in the sensitive use of color and texture, using “chameleon” colors that reflect and absorb light to create energy. He also has an extensive historical knowledge of architecture and furniture styles for application over a broad range of design projects.

Todd was listed as one of the Washington Post’s Designer’s Under Forty to Watch, has appeared on HGTV, and his work has been featured in the Washington Post / Washington Post Magazine, Elle Décor, Architectural Digest and Home & Design.

Emily Bishop
Principal Designer

Before joining Home on Cameron as principal designer, Emily was founder and owner of Emily Bishop Interior Design, specializing in high-end residential spaces. Emily’s comprehensive industry experience includes new construction, historic renovations, interior architecture and space planning, as well as kitchen and bath design and renovations.

Inspired by classic architecture, travel and nature, Emily’s style combines clean, modern lines with classic proportions and reflects more than two decades honing her craft. Acting as a client advocate with an ever-vigilant eye for details, Emily designs for longevity and creates interiors that seamlessly balance form and function.

A licensed interior designer, Emily holds a BFA in Interior Design from the University of Georgia and an NCIDQ certification. She taught for seven years at The Corcoran College of Art + Design, which included her role as Thesis Advisor for the Masters of Interior Design. Emily currently lives in Washington, DC and her projects span from San Francisco to the Chesapeake Bay areas, as well as Ketchum, ID, Brooklyn, NY, Philadelphia, PA, and Central Virginia.

OUR PROCESS

Our goal is to help you create your home. We start by discussing how you want to use the space. Then we move into determining your style. The next step is to give you options for your space that fit your function and style. These ideas can vary from paint colors and furnishings to designing new kitchens and baths.
