Growing up in Australia, Godbold vividly recalls an interview with Bowie, who pushed the envelope as an artist while delivering a message that continues to resonate with the interior designer to this day: Be original. To that end, in his work, Godbold shuns sameness and strives to be at the forefront of his field—whether it’s interior design or even fashion musing (he authored a book about the sartorial influence of military uniforms). Although always keeping his eye on the periphery, Godbold’s perspective comes from a foundation that is rooted in historical references.

In the luxurious interiors that he conceives, modern, vintage and contemporary pieces harmonize, yielding a signature style that also incorporates natural elements such as wood and stone along with striking silhouettes and palettes. At once comfortable and refined, a Godbold interior seamlessly blends function and beauty.

His projects range from historical renovations to new builds. The studio’s expertise extends beyond design concepts to include architectural presentations and 3D renderings, managing every service requested by the client—whether they are bachelors or families, all of whom appreciate discretion.

Godbold has been featured in Luxe Interiors + Design, Elle USA, NY Times, Rue Magazine, HC&G, Elle Australia, CA Home + Design, Lonny Magazine and 1stDibs’ Introspective Magazine.

In his spare time, through the nonprofit Hamptons 20th Century Modern, Godbold aims to preserve modern dwellings built in the Hamptons, while raising awareness of their architectural significance. His efforts with the organization—much like his overarching approach to design—celebrates originality.
