Interiors designed to inspire your happiest life.
Poppy Home Design is a full-service interior design studio where a love for art, design, and nature collide to deliver homes that are as meaningful as they are unique.
Founded in 2016 by long-time college friends Monica and Allison, Poppy Home Design is celebrated for its steadfast work ethic, client-centric approach, and an irresistible spirit of fun. (We love to laugh!)
If you're looking for sophisticated interiors, enduring materials, and comprehensive service, we've got you covered. But more importantly, we make your home a livable, creative masterpiece with you at its heart.
Chief Creative Officer & Principal Designer
With a B.A. in Communication and Fine Arts and a Master of Arts, Monica's expertise and endless creativity is an asset to every project that crosses our desks. As the Chief Creative Officer, Monica leads every project in collaboration with our clients, internal team, and other trade specialists.
A creative at heart, Monica's early career started outside of the design industry, with the 10-year run of her wildly successful stationery business, Monica Maslack Stationers. Her products were picked up by Neiman Marcus, Target, and some celebs. (Jennifer Lopez, Christy Turlington, and Tony Hawk, to name-drop a few!)
Since 2011, Monica has switched creative gears and specialized in designing, renovating, and furnishing homes from top to bottom. When she's not in the studio, she can be found spending time with her boyfriend, two kids, yellow Labrador (Poppy!), and shih tzu (Nutzie).
Chief Operating Officer & Principal Designer
With more than 7 years of design experience and a background in business operations, money management, and event planning, Allison brings organization and efficiency to our creative team.
Although she collaborates on the design of every home, as Chief Executive Officer, she spearheads project budgeting, scheduling, and team management, ensuring that every project is collaborative success between our clients, internal team, and extended team of trades.
As a mother of two (and with a blended family of five kids), Allison has a passion for interiors that make life easier, more enjoyable, and more meaningful.
When she is not in the design studio, she can be found in her garden, hangin' with her two dogs (Hubie and George), or orchestrating the next fun-filled event with friends.

Our Commitment to Philanthropy & Positive Community Impact
At Poppy Home Design, we're all about spreading the love. We wholeheartedly believe in the power of giving back and making a difference within the communities we serve. That's why we proudly partner with the following heartfelt local initiatives.
Kennedy Krieger stands as the world's leading institution in providing support for pediatric developmental disabilities and brain-related disorders. And if you haven't experienced one of the incredible annual events hosted by the Women's Initiative Network, it's a must-attend! Trust us, it will leave you inspired.
We're honored to stand alongside the Baltimore Hunger Project and support their mission to fight childhood hunger in our city. It's inspiring to see the impact of this organization, founded by a local mom who recognized an urgent need to make childhood hunger a thing of the past.
It should come as no surprise that we have a soft spot for animals, especially dogs. After all, our company is named after one! We proudly support the Maryland SPCA and their unwavering mission to provide compassion and care to every animal. (Speaking of furry friends, have you met our adorable office assistants?)
Our Office Assistants
is our faithful, loyal, lovable, always wagging her tail, yellow lab. She's the very ladylike, grand dame of the crew at 98 (in doggy years!!) and the Poppy Home Design namesake. Her favorite past time is eating (or sniffing out something to eat!) but also snoozing or just quietly watching the world go by.
is the most happy go lucky, lovey, silly shih tzu you'll ever meet! What makes her happiest is lots of love, ALL the attention and being curled up in anyone's lap at any given moment. The consummate companion whose always up for an adventure Or just a boring old drive down the street.
is the handsome, extra large, alpha man about town. He loves doggy toothbrushes, sneaking food off the counter (which he can reach without much effort!!) loooong walks, belly rubs and lounging on his favorite bed next to the window, keeping watch over his house. Don't come in unannounced or you'll be in for a BIG surprise!

aka Boo, Allison's sensitive, emotionally connected 5 year old Boykin Spaniel. She loves to swim in the pool and snuggle on the couch with her buddy, George. She is the old soul in the family.
