From private residences to commercial properties, Clarke conveys the effortless vibe of life at the beach. His residences also deeply reflect the people who live in them, and their own appreciation of their surrounding natural environment.

It is this love of nature and the great outdoors that inspires Clarke’s work. His design is encouraged by the way nature arranges color patterns, layers textures, and mixes symmetry and asymmetry in the shapes of all things. His choices of colors, texture, and pattern on the walls, floors, furnishings and objects, directly reference this natural palette.
Inherited Base | Tim Clarke Design
As both shop owner and designer, Clarke has created a studio based on the concept of a bespoke interior design Atelier. This allows for experimentation and discovery in both creativity and design. Tim Clarke Supply captures the local spirit of classic Santa Monica and bohemian Venice nearby.
Beach Classic | Tim Clarke Design
Collectible surfboards hang on the walls like old masters in this loft-like space of concrete, exposed rafters and cinder block. It’s a casual yet curated space, where visitors can see the design team at work and purchase from a constantly changing collection of handmade, found, or vintage furniture, fabric and accessories. This approach not only allows for a great place to gather inspiration, but also serves as a laboratory for ideas that find their way into Clarke’s projects.
