Client Testimonials

"Working with Marie was a real pleasure! She took the time to talk with discuss our likes and dislikes. She really m​ade sure that she fully understood and appreciated what our style was and what it was that we hoped to accomplish. Marie was also not afraid to challenge our ideas and give us the opportunity to see our home with a fresh set of eyes. Working with a designer can often feel intimidating, but Marie's friendliness, personality and professionalism quickly overcame any doubts we may have had. Her choices of furnishings, fabric and palette were right on the money!"
