What People are Saying! 

I am happy to share these supportive and kind words from my clients that represent the scope of my work and relationships built.  Thank you to everyone for voicing your applause!

From seeing the big picture to the smallest detail, Mary’s vision is her gift. Mary designed every room in my home and has just finished an entirely different and stunning look in my downsized townhouse. I wouldn’t pick a paint color or buy a couch without her.” – Jill, Clinton NY

I met Mary at the Parade of Homes ten years ago and was so blown away by her work that I hired her to decorate my new home. Mary decorated every room, choosing paint colors, furniture, accessories, rugs and drapery and did an unbelievable job. The decor is over the top and I never, until recently, changed a thing as I loved everything Mary did. Everyone that comes to my house comments on how beautiful it is. I recently called Mary to update my kitchen and refresh other rooms. I loved everything she suggested and will be calling her in the spring for more updates and to get into the spring mode.

Mary is kind, professional and knows her work! I trust her implicitly and would never do anything in my house without her guidance. She is the Best of the Best in her business. – Marie DeStefano, Hunt Real Estate, Manlius, NY

Working with Mary these past few years has been great. She is so dependable and easy to work with. Mary helps us decorate our club in a variety of ways with seasonal floral arrangements, outdoor florals, and interior design. She is always on point. When we have decorating needs, we always think of Mary. – Marleah Grajko, Banquet Manager – Bellevue Country Club

Mary has helped us for over 15 years on several projects. Initially, she developed a vision for a room we were struggling to decorate. We became sold on her abilities as a decorator and then hired Mary for our new home. She integrated our existing furnishings then selected new pieces, paint, wall papers, rugs and window treatments for our entire home.

In 2008, Mary helped us with our newly built Adirondack home. She again blended her vision with ours, selecting fabrics, window treatments, furniture layout, color direction and placement of art works and antiques. Her efforts have created a truly remarkable family retreat.  We have come to love and appreciate Mary’s commitment to getting the job done right, beautifully, down to the last book or candle on your mantel! We totally appreciate her exquisite taste and style! – Laurie, Fayetteville, NY
