I hired Margaret to organize and redecorate my family's vacation home on Cape Cod. She was very accommodating, willing to work within our limited budget and reuse items that had been hidden in storage for many years. She listened carefully to the opinions of different stakeholders and was able to synthesize our likes and dislikes into a cohesive whole. She worked extremely hard, long hours, and did most of the physical labor herself. By the end of it, the house was entirely transformed! Where there had previously been mismatched furniture and no cohesive aesthetic or structure , she made it look like an interior design magazine spread. She was also very thorough, completely removing items and cleaning where they had been before bringing anything back into the rooms, unlike other decorators I have worked with who really just moved things from one place to another. She was very good at sorting through items and helped us to let go of some of the things that we were just having trouble getting rid of. In the end, we don't miss anything we've gotten rid of and she helped us declutter the space over 50%. She is a patient and hard worker, but also able to tell it you directly, cutting through the emotional hold-ups that sometimes stand in the way of getting things done.
Overall she was fantastic to work with, and clearly demonstrates an ability to work with many different kinds of space and styles. She brings a unique eye for design but is still able to work within your budget, whatever size it may be, and can entirely transform a space. It really helped us bring new life to a space that was becoming frankly, a dumping ground. I would absolutely hire her again, and would highly recommend her to friends, and have.
We are so grateful to finally have our home meet our original hopes and intentions of having a relaxing, inviting, organized, vacation gathering space.
