Mark's approach is highly creative, resourceful, budget conscious, organized and functional. It's wonderful when all these qualities are packaged in one designer. Mark listens translates and offers the client creative options to fulfill their vision. We enjoyed working with Mark and highly recommend.
Mark did a whole house remodel for us from concept drawings, to detailed plan and most of the interior design. His aesthetic is modern, but we wanted a softer, more deco approach and he listened and came up with a timeless design that will never look dated. His own furniture line is gorgeous and our custom pieces look beautiful with his carefully selected accessories. He mixes high and low with panache and shops resale and websites for just the right item to set off the room.
He is especially brilliant with color and I've seen him consult on just that with transformative results. When he takes on a project he's 100% focused. He doesn't waste time. Mark is a creative, resourceful designer who will help you get to your ideal ...even if you're not sure what that is...he knows how to work with clients and vendors and you'll be happy.
Mark is very knowledgeable and responsive with good design ideas and suggestions and gets the job done. On top of using good quality contractors, Mark is very dependable and budget conscience and can finish the project on time. You won't regret using his valued skills.
My husband and I hired Mark to remodel and design our condo we bought in Palm Springs. My husband and I live in the bay area so we needed someone with the same vision as us and the ability become the project lead. Mark was amazing, he hired, supervised and managed all sub-contractors for us. Mark picked out different finishing materials and gave us options as the project progressed. When we saw our property for the first time after it was completed it was the classic HGTV moment and reveal. We would certainly hire Mark again if given the opportunity.
Mark has exceptional taste and is a person you can trust. He works with you and doesn’t dictate to his clients-it’s a dialogue, which is refreshing. He works very hard for his clients and provides tremendous value.
He has been very responsive. I’m enjoying the experience and excited to begin the project. A super nice guy and very down to earth.
I was referred to Mark by a friend who hired him to design his house, which I thought was a knock out! He has a great eye for balancing all design elements and really knows design. He came up with so many ideas I would never have thought of, I just stopped counting and trusted him to get me the result I was after. My home came out better than I could have dreamed of and its all because I trusted him to be the pro and let him do his thing! You will not be sorry if you choose to work with
I selected Mark to update my 1974 ranch-style home after visiting his home and admiring his style and aesthetic choices. I hoped he could approximate that with my home.
Without listing all the aspects and phases of the project, it was a major redesign and renovation of a house this size (2150sq ft), accomplished in approximately 6 months.
I was delighted with the finished product and remain as delighted 10 years later. I get compliments on the house from neighbors and passers-by on a regular basis.
My experience with Mark exceeded my expectations. I felt as though as I was guided throughout by an experienced and informed professional who bent his vision to mine on those few occasions we may have disagreed. I realized early in the process that Mark knew how to drive a project forward to meet deadlines. He is a skilled trouble-shooter, who can anticipate issues before they become problems and, if they do, remedy them. There were no substantial delays in the renovation of my home. For that, I credit Mark's superb organizational skills and powers of persuasion.
Some years later when I was ready to redesign and update the pool/backyard, I went back to Mark for design work and direction in managing the project. It was another successful experience for me with Mark and completed the update of this property.
Mark designed my mid-century modern house in the Hollywood Hills above the Strip and gave it all the glamour, style and comfort I wanted. I felt the effort was completely collaborative and yet know he pushed me sometimes out of my comfort zones to great results. He put me up at a hotel for the final installation - he saw to everything from linens to furniture to every finish. When I walked into the house the candles were lit, every vase was filled with flowers - it simply took my breath away. It was a wonderful experience, start to finish. He also helped me freshen up the house over the years too. Thank you, Mark!
Mark came up with a beautiful and functional solution for my office/guest bedroom combo. These rooms are always so hard to make look like anything but a compromise but he succeeded: when it's my office, it is highly functional and comfortable for working and relaxing; when it's a guest bedroom it's welcoming and a cozy private haven.
