Our Story

Morningstar Interiors is Springfield, Missouri’s only black-owned interior design studio. As a brand new residential interior design studio, our story is just beginning, and while it’s difficult to articulate our full journey at this early stage, our vision for the future is clear and inspiring.

Morningstar Interiors is the realization of a lifelong dream. Our head designer, Braylon, has been passionate about design since childhood. His love for decorating the family Christmas tree was so strong that he wouldn’t let anyone else touch it. Braylon also spent countless hours reconfiguring and changing the layout of his room, showcasing his early talent for design and spatial harmony.

Although we specialize in the timeless elegance of Art Deco, we are a full-service interior design studio ready to tackle any design project. Our expertise includes kitchen design, color consultation, and lighting design. By focusing on these key areas, we ensure that each space is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, bringing our clients’ visions to life.

“For a house to be successful, the objects in it must communicate with one another, respond and balance one another.”

Morningstar Interiors is committed to “light bringing design.” This philosophy goes beyond simply illuminating spaces; it embodies our dedication to being a source of hope and positivity in our clients’ lives. Rooted in Braylon’s Christian faith, our goal is to be a guiding light from the beginning of each project, through its completion, and beyond.

Our vision extends beyond beautiful interiors. One of our future goals is to establish a scholarship fund specifically for BIPOC individuals pursuing post-secondary education in architecture or interior design. This initiative aims to nurture and support the next generation of creative minds, ensuring diversity and inclusion within the industry.

“When you’re building a room, you’re building character, and character is the strength and wisdom of a home.”

Design is an experience that should feel comfortable and bring joy, peace, hope, and many other emotions. As a designer, Braylon aims to create designs that evoke a ‘WOW!’ reaction while being a beacon of hope for his clients.

At Morningstar Interiors, we believe that successful design is about creating harmony and balance within a space. Ensuring that every element works together to create a cohesive and beautiful environment is central to our approach. This balance not only brings aesthetic pleasure but also fosters a sense of well-being and tranquility. Our designs are tailored to reflect the unique personality and needs of our clients, resulting in spaces that are not just visually stunning but also deeply personal and welcoming.
