Mark Addison

Designer and entertaining expert Mark Addison has had an insatiable curiosity about design and entertaining since he was very young. His purposeful design and passion for creating entertaining spaces has made him a sought after voice on all things chic and clever—from home design and entertaining to signature drinks and cooking. Mark believes that great living doesn’t have to empty the wallet.

Mark has been featured on the “Today” show, “Better TV,” FOX News, “The Apprentice,” “Access Hollywood” and “America’s Next Top Model.” In addition, his content can be found in InStyle, People, New York and Interiors and he is a regular contributor for Us Weekly.

Mark eventually merged all of his talents and started his own event design firm, EVENTSTYLE that has become the “go-to” company for celebrity events, major product launches and major non-profit galas. He approaches a design challenge by deconstructing it, then reviving it with his own unique inspiration to create for the viewer a fresh perspective on even the most classic tradition. Mark finds unique and unusual ingredients to give his work a special edge.
