Raised in Jacksonville, Florida, Mary Martha Waterworth’s family has long standing ties to Hugo’s Interiors. Growing up, she was surrounded by beautiful items of antiques, art, textiles, and quality Hugo’s pieces. She accredits her love and appreciation of historic architecture due to being raised in the Avondale area and traveling.
Mary Martha attended Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree. After college, she moved to Los Angeles, California where she found her love of antiquing. Her weekends were spent scouring local flea markets for unique items. She then moved back to Jacksonville, where in February 2012 she started working with Jennie Hugo at Crosby Designs for Hugo’s Interiors. She enjoys designing for clients with all different tastes, from traditional to contemporary. Mary Martha’s personal design aesthetic is mixing ‘the new with the old’ and she isn’t afraid of using color. Alongside Jennie, Mary Martha acts as buyer for both retail locations and designs Hugo’s stock upholstery and casegood pieces. Mary Martha enjoys volunteering for the Wolfson Children’s Hospital. In 2015, she cochaired the Decorations Committee for the Art and Antique Show and in 2016 is cochairing the Resale Committee for the event.
Mary Martha and her husband Lucas, local portrait artist, live in the beautiful Ortega area.
