about martine

My passion for interiors has been there from a young age and while I pursued other career options to begin with – I always found myself looking for a creative angle in all my work. The combination of the creative and having an extensive background in business and project management has been the perfect combination for me to develop logical strategies for problem solving and navigating the design and build process.

When people ask about my preferred design style, I often find it challenging to pinpoint one. My design approach evolves as I delve deeper into understanding our clients’ needs and preferences. I firmly believe that our homes ought to reflect our identities, enriching and enhancing our daily lives – to not only look beautiful but to inspire all our senses and support us in what we need most. Be it calm and clarity, motivation, or mood elevation. That life is to be lived and lived well. Each client has their own unique needs and aspirations – this is where my work begins.

What I love most about doing what we do is seeing clients enjoying their home at the end and knowing we played a big part in creating these spaces for them.

Martine’s warmth, authenticity, and intuitive response to design, allows her to make purposeful suggestions and site-specific solutions – with a deep respect for the impact design has to enhance people’s lives in the now, and well into the future.
It is considered a great privilege for MCID to create an honest and personal imprint – true to each client and how they aspire to feel and live within their home.


Established in 2014, we have been transforming homes for our busy clients for a decade. 

Communication, connection, and cohesion is at the heart of our approach, and this translates into MCID delivering beautiful liveable homes for our clients each time.

The types of clients we work with often have a goal of often updating an older home or customising a new home to suit their stage of life. Many are busy professionals who are time poor so running a large renovation or build can seem daunting and It’s no wonder.  With over 200+ significant decisions to make in a full home project, you can become easily overwhelmed.  MCID work with you to ensure you feel in control the whole way through.

We have an extensive network of suppliers, library of materials and knowledge to assist with the multitude of decisions that need to be made during a large project.  We can really simplify the process for our clients and keep them informed along the way. At the start of a project, we evaluate the best team for the job and collaborate with design professionals, suppliers, and trades to ensure the right outcomes are achieved.

Our studio is based in Melbourne however MCID takes on design projects across VIC and NSW.

MCID works with you to create a clear and cohesive vision for your home. We remove the overwhelm and break things down into manageable steps.  We bring your spaces to life with real samples, plans and 3d visualisations and we create a supportive and enjoyable environment for you along the way.

Our clients tell us they feel like they have receive the ‘white glove’ treatment and that we successfully simplify the design and build process for them.

Miguel, Port Melbourne – full home renovation

“I do not like using words like always or never, but for Martine, I’ll make an exception. We will never do a project without Martine and always engage her services for any of our renovations or new builds going forward!  

We were super impressed by her from the get-go, and the outcome we got together has been a dream come true for our large family! Every trade was extremely impressed with her know how and knowledge. 

Her ability to combine functionality and practicality with beautiful design and luxurious feel has given us a family home of our dreams! 

We absolutely love our home and would never have achieved the outcome we did without Martine Cooper!!!”

Ally, Prahran – full home renovation

“Working with the MCID team on our project has been fabulous….an absolute pleasure! Martine and Sarah have an incredible talent for not only interior design but also for delivering outstanding service with a warm, enthusiastic ‘can do’ approach. Their passion, insight and eye for detail is meticulous and carried out with the utmost professionalism. We admire and congratulate them on their dedication to bringing our vision to life. We whole heartedly felt this was of the highest priority as they really took the time to understand and consider our style and hopes for the result. We would highly recommend MCID to anyone needing collaboration on their interior design project. We could not have done this without you! Thank you so much Martine and Sarah.”

Simone, Lilydale – full home renovation

We have recently completed a renovation with MCID, and it looks amazing. Martine really took the time to understand our brief. We were nervous about choosing tiles, benchtops and fixtures for our kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry but Martine made it easy. She is a talented designer and came up with a beautiful combination of colours and materials. Our home now looks luxurious and feels calm. We love it! Thank you, Martine, it was a pleasure working with you and your team.
