Martina Servos has been designing homes, office spaces, retail locations and photo shots for more than 20 years. She got her start in her native Germany after studying interior architecture under some of Europe’s most influential designers at the renowned FH Duesseldorf. While there, Servos also studied carpentry, furniture design, freehand and life drawings as well as technical drafting and design methodology and the basics of architecture. In 1987, Servos graduated at the top of her class with the title of Engineer of Interior Architecture.
In 2003, Servos left her successful business in Germany to move to the States where she has been spreading her European flair through the suburbs of Northern Jersey as well as New York City.
Servos launched her own design business Lemon Grass in 2006. As one of her first jobs she was chosen for the prestigious job of decorating the stately Gracie Mansion, the official residence of New York City’s Mayor for a special fund raising event hosted by Mayor Bloomberg.
