“Mary Beth has incredible taste and you could hire her simply to design on her own and it would be a success. But her real gift is that she's also able to "see" my design taste -- even if I'm not great at articulating it myself -- and she manages to pull it all together into something magical. The room we worked on is functional, it's stylish and it very much feels like a reflection of the best of me. It makes me happy every time we use it."

“I have received gushing compliments from everyone who steps into our lakehouse because it is so beautifully designed, and manages to maintain that balance between “put together,”
but still comfortable, livable and not too precious. Everything from the bathroom and kitchen tile to the light fixtures, bedding, furniture, pillows and other accents are just right for the space and our lifestyle. I mostly want to thank you for your patience and guidance in helping me make the many, many decisions that contributed to the end result. I can’t wait to tackle the next design project with you by my side. Thank you!"

“From conception to completion, Mary Beth designed, orchestrated and implemented a
near-complete rehab of my South Loop condominium. She is extraordinarily creative and has an amazing eye for detail, color and coordination. Mary Beth built the project around a custom fireplace that she conceived. Once we saw Mary Beth’s vision for the space, it made perfect sense. She then developed the main living area around that feature, picking paint and fabrics, as well as creating a new lighting arrangement that helped bring the space to life. Mary Beth also oversaw a complete rehab of our master bathroom, and her recommendations there were also great. Finally, Mary Beth is an extremely talented gardener, and she thus totally transformed our outdoor balcony space (roughly 2,400 square feet) into a wonderful urban oasis. Mary Beth was always responsive and timely, and managed our expectations and costs. When Mary Beth says she’ll do something, she does it. When she says she’ll be there on a date and time certain, she will be there.
In short, I cannot more highly recommend Mary Beth."
