Mari was the lead designer and oversaw the complete tear down and remodel of our master bathroom. Mari was instrumental by helping with every detail of the project from tile and cabinet selections to faucet style. We were so pleased that we hired her again to design and oversee our kitchen remodel which is ongoing without a hitch. We couldn't be more pleased with Mari and would recommend her unequivocally to any size home project.
