Just wanted to tell you how nice it is to give someone (George) a recommendation (you) and have him come back to us and rave about the job that you have done. He is ecstatic about how his townhouse looks and loved working with your contractors. I would never hesitate to give your name to anyone looking to do some remodeling and I know George feels the same way. Just wanted to add my thanks to those already sent your way by our friend, George. Hope to work with you again in the future.
Everything looks amazing and all of your design ideas have been spot on so I'm 100% happy!!!
Mary has exceptional taste, and is always on the cutting edge of the latest trends, or ready to support a more traditional design. She designed new bathrooms and a mudroom for my home, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
I moved into an old home that had been renovated by the previous owners. I wanted decorating help, but only could work on one space at a time, starting with the family room. I hired MJM interiors to help me furnish the room and stage a large wall full of shelves. The room turned out beautifully, and Mary was able to find the sectional I had been searching for for months. I appreciated Mary's thoughtfulness and her sensitivity to my budget. She was very open to working within my parameters. After the family room was complete, she helped me with some odds and ends around the house. She also most recently helped me re-do our guest room on a very limited budget. So far, we have worked on a low-budget update (guest room) and a complete re-do (family room) and I am thrilled with both!
AMAZING! That is the best word to describe MJM Interiors! Mary is creative, artistic, and always has a vision with the end product in mind. She worked with my husband and I from the infancy stages of our home renovation. She came to our first meetings with our architect while he was in the design stage and helped us arrange the layout of our house to be functional and beautiful. She has worked with us throughout the project helping us pick out light fixtures, hardware, cabinetry, paint colors, and anything else you can imagine! What I love about Mary is she gives her opinion about what will look best and she is always right on point! On top of that she is punctual, returns phone calls/texts/emails, and flexible with her schedule. This review isn't doing her justice....she is one of a kind! I'm so happy that she was able to help us with our project and I will continue to use her in the future.
We have been working with Mary for over seven years since we moved into our home. Over the years we have moved from room to room, seeking Mary's help on everything from furnishings to gut rehabs of our kitchen and baths. She has great style, impeccable taste, terrific contacts and makes the process fun and easy. Mary has helped us create a home we truly love.
Mary Mausser and MJM have done an exceptional job over the past year in decorating and furnishing my home. Mary has worked with me on both contemporary and antique pieces and currently is assisting me with artwork. She also worked closely with my contractor on such items as a built-in desk, built-in dressers as well as outdoor pergola/deck. Mary and her team's work and service has been fantastic and they have went above and beyond to make my house a beautiful home.
We hired MJM Interiors to design and manage a significant renovation of our townhouse, taking a closed, dark, small lower level to an open, airy, relaxed concept with a particular focus on the kitchen for my husband who is a professional chef. Mary, the principal of the firm, quickly understood the vibe we were after. Her suggestions throughout the project were always "on concept," and when we didn't agree with certain suggestions, she was able to make other recommendations quickly. Mary is experienced, works very well with sometimes-tense clients (ahem!) and brings a strong sense of style. I will definitely work with her again and highly recommend her.
I have worked with MJM interiors for 15 years. Mary is professional, knowledgable, and talented. We actually had Mary fly down to help us with our home in Florida because she would make sure the room looked fabulous, and she did. I would highly recommend MJM to anyone. Mary is a pleasure to work with, and her work ethic and followup are excellent.
We remodeled our kitchen and redecorated our living room and dining room. Mary was involved from the beginning and I'm thankful that she was. We opened up the kitchen so that it is open to the living room, dining room and family room. The results with Mary's help are beautiful, and she worked so well with our General contractor. It all flows together and the kitchen is part of the living space. Mary is such a pleasure to work with. She listens and pays attention to the details. She wanted to understand how we were going to use the space and make sure the design worked for us. We recently purchased a condo that needs updating and decorating, and Mary will be doing all the work on this project too.
Mary is excellent. We bought an old house for our family of 7 and we needed help furnishing and accessorizing every room. She was able to use some of our old traditional pieces of furniture and place them to look like they fit in our "new" rustic style home. She listens well and makes selections that are practical for our busy family. She has a great eye for dimensions, color and style. She also designed and made selections for countertops, cabinets, and tile for our kitchen and 2 bathrooms that needed updating. The projects are in progress but so far everything looks great. She is a very good designer, easy to work with and has a nice demeanor.
Worked with Mary on a few different projects. She was mindful to keep the budget within guidelines. Her special strengths are an overall vision of the projects, attending to the many details involved, finding skilled craftsmen, and supervision of the projects. I would highly recommend Mary and will work with her again when a need arises.
MJM Interiors has planned and implemented a number of design projects for my homes. The most recent was the selection of materials and finishes for a bed/bath addition to my home in Lincoln, NE. In addition, MJM Interiors selected furnishings for the bedroom using a variety of commercial and specialty suppliers. The attention of the firm to color coordination throughout the addition was superior leading to a warm, homey and special place for my wife and me. The firm dealt successfully with a suppler of an area rug who was not able to acquire the particular fabric that we desired. They worked over time with that supplier to achieve a satisfactory solution and also negotiated a discount due to the delay caused by the supplier.
This firm does an excellent job in space planning, finish selection, furnishings including lighting. They are also able to coordinate a variety of styles, in our case blending family antique pieces with new furnitures. They give you a whole product at prices that I see as fair.
Working with Mary is always a pleasure. She communicates her ideas in a way that the project runs smoothly. My client are always thrilled with her recommendations. She delivers information in a timely manner so we can finish the project on time.
Mary has decorated several rooms in our house and we love the results. The rooms are beautiful, warm and we receive many compliments on her work! She is thoughtful about the ideas she brings to us and she is very easy to work with. Highly recommend!
Mary was fantastic to work with! She was able to turn my very dated traditional loft into a beautiful contemporary space well within my budget. New kitchen cabinets were not in my budget and she was able to find a new countertop and backsplash that completely changed the look of my old kitchen that worked perfectly with the old cabinets! She presented me with several options of paint, furniture, window treatments, accessories, rugs, and lighting to choose from and was able to work all elements together beautifully. She is a true professional with a high sense of style and design expertise. She made my old loft feel like the home I dreamed of but did not think was possible. Thank you Mary!!
I have worked with MJM Interiors for several smaller decorating projects with great success. So we decided to use Mary for a complete redo of our kitchen. Her expertise and skill were just what we needed to create a kitchen that we love. She managed every detail with accuracy and worked with us to ensure we were able to get what we wanted while still meeting our budget. She was responsive, creative and very involved in every aspect of the project from finding contractors and getting quotes, to picking out even the smallest of details like the new faucet. We couldn't be more pleased with the process and the result.
Mary brought her expertise to a remodeling project for a single family residence located in Lincoln Park. Without the help and guidance of MJM Interiors, I am quite confident this project would have come to a complete standstill. She listened to the client the entire time, brought many creative ideas to the table and stood firm on many of her talented decisions. Bringing an array of samples, from floor coverings to final wall finishes and exterior colors and textures, made the decision making that much easier. Another wonderful experience.
A few years ago, Mary designed my kitchen and 2 baths. I recently rehired her to update my floors, hallway, dining room and two bedrooms. She has an impeccable eye and is so accessible. She cares about her vision but is always sensitive to mine, as well.
Spatial management and scale is always important, especially when living in the city (due to space constraint). I had been toiling with the layout of my main room for a year, not finding the inspiration or 'the answer' from all the websites and showrooms I frequented. Finally I got smart, and called MJM Interiors. Mary came to my home and spent a lot of time asking me questions to understand my vision and style, and went to work finding pieces (tables, sofas, lamps) that matched the color scheme and flow I was looking for, while also being at the right scale. The final result was Mary finding gorgeous pieces, including a beautiful sectional sofa that I had custom made with fabric we selected, and re-working the main room and the master bdrm to improve flow. Mary also very kindly helped me chart out the rental furniture I was having delivered as I was hosting Thanksgiving for 20 in my 1250 sq ft condo! Thank you Mary and team- I owe all house compliments to you!
MJM helped me to re-design my kitchen in my condo. I had been in my place for 5 years and knew that I need to add some more storage. I was thinking about bumping out the wall in the hall closet to create a pantry. But when I called Mary at MJM Interiors, she had a better idea. She came over, reviewed with me what my needs were and then she got to designing. Since I also really wanted to keep an eat in part to the kitchen, Mary's design included that as well. She designed a L shape counter with an eat in area and more cabinet storage. She was able to match my existing cabinets and counter top. I love my kitchen! I have gotten many compliants on it when people are over.
I hired Mary to assist with decorating a new three bedroom condo. She has a great eye for design, personality and is extremely easy to work with. I'd highly recommend her for any project.
Mary has helped me in both my old home and my new condo. She has creative ideas that stay within my budget. She works with my timeline and always checks in and follows through. I would highly recommend Mary for anyone in need of guidance and expertise while decorating or redocorating.
I hired Mary (MJM Interiors) to assist with an update of most rooms in my house, including the master bedroom, family room, living room, kitchen and office. Mary was extremely professional and responsive. She had me start by utilizing the Houzz website to assist her with looks or schemes that I liked. Once she had a better sense of what I was looking for, she was able to provide me with a number of different options at different price points, including looks I had never considered, that actually looked much better than anything I came up with. She was very patient with my questions/concerns, as well as creative with solutions that stayed well within my budget. Her attention to detail was exquisite and her responses to my large number of questions were timely and helpful. I was not looking forward to updating my house, but Mary made the process very easy and my house looks amazing. Everyone I have recommended MJM to has also been very satisfied. I would absolutely hire MJM again if I ever need additional design assistance.
