Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I partner with my clients to design intentional homes for a life well lived. I listen and gain an understanding of the lifestyle my clients have, what inspires them, what materials they gravitate towards and ultimately what the function of each room is. I then use my approachable design process to space plan, source, and create a design that celebrates and serves the client's lifestyle. I then connect you with my team of trusted tradespeople to help you achieve your dream home. I'd love to hear more about your project! Message me or request a call to get a quote on your project, to hear more about my design process, or to ask any other questions you may have!

Mariana and I worked together on a new home interior design project, where she sourced new pieces for our common spaces - living room, dining room, and backyard. Mariana spent a lot of time with me upfront to understand our design direction, and reviewed my Pinterest board for inspiration. She provided great options to transform the spaces, and particularly pieces that would withstand the test of time. Mariana is thoughtful, on-time, delivers quickly, and is an overall pleasure to work with.

Details: Design of 3 - 4 rooms • Living room • Dining room • Bedroom(s) • 1,500 - 2,000 sq ft • Space planning / layout • Furniture selection • Accessories / art selection • Lighting selection • Coastal • Eclectic • Contemporary • My home, venue, etc.

I would highly recommend using Mariana - MAC Design LA for your interior design needs! She has been helping me transform a 1958 bathroom in need of complete renovations. She is very eager to please her customers. Working with Mariana has been a smooth process - I was hesitant to hire an interior designer but I completely trust her. She has stayed within budget and has made great recommendations. She is professional, thoughtful, and fun to work with.

MAC design is amazing. They helped us turn this small storage area into a beautiful homey podcast studio. They were on time, diligent, and a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. I highly recommend them. Take a peek at the photos below to see their transformative work! It doesn’t even look like the same space. Amazing.

Because of Mariana's obvious desire to do excellent work, she has an excellent work ethic, knowledge of design, and ability to be patient and to communicate effectively. Love the way she orchestrates color, texture and function.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge hourly. For most projects, I'm able to give an estimated number of hours once I learn the scope of work needed and the client's budget. The beauty of this system is that it serves both parties: it gives us the ability to move more efficiently through a project which could mean charging less hours than estimated or if the client(s) want to hire me for additional services not factored into the estimate - we can just add on more hours! There are a few ways to receive discounted rates. Just ask me about it!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an A.A. in Interior Design and was recently the Head of Interior Design at a design/build firm in Calabasas, CA.
