We have engaged Marie several times to help in remodeling our older home, which illustrates how pleased we have been with her work. Marie is very personable, listens carefully, and has been able to translate some admittedly vague preferences into stunning designs. She consistently searches for innovative materials and technologies to enhance results for her customers. In an effort to consider aesthetics, budget, and practicality, Marie routinely identifies alternatives, along with the pro’s and con’s of each, to help reach a decision her client will be happy with for the long-term.
In our home, Marie designed a complete renovation of our kitchen, and major upgrades in design, lighting, and furnishings for our living room, a bedroom, den, and dining room. These projects involved the typical complexities of an older home: tight spaces, working with existing walls, plumbing and wiring, non-standard dimensions, and tight tolerances. They also required ongoing consultation with the contractors. In each project, Marie developed a high-level concept, and then carried it through with meticulous attention to detail. Her depth of knowledge and sense of style have truly transformed our home.In summary, we highly recommend Marie for her work in interior design and space planning.
We attempted to work with two other designers before selecting Marie; the difference was night and day. One basically walked us through a design center without any guidance or comment, and another seemed to focus on camouflaging symptoms of poor design or furnishing choice, rather than addressing the real problem
Marie organized the visits to maximize time with suppliers she thought would match our tastes and budget. She was also very scrupulous about her billable hours… The samples always provided a beautiful variety from which to choose, and were of the sort you would not find in home improvement or department stores.Would we work with her again? In a heartbeat. We found Marie to be very detail-oriented and diligent in her efforts. She was easy to work with, and flexible about design changes, budget considerations, and our work schedules.
