Great working with Studio One Nine Design. She communicates well and was very very patient with me. At the time I wasn't sure what I actually wanted or my style. But we talked things through and I explained my situation and we were able to work something out that I was very pleased with. Thank you.

Our company had a fantastic experience working with Marlaya @Studio One Nine Design. We could not be happier about the outcome of her work designing and furnishing our office space. We are so pleased that we have already hired her again to do another office space for us in NC. She was professional, resourceful, and completed her work on time. Would 100% recommend!

Thank you so much, Kate, for the kind words! I'm grateful you had a wonderful experience, and I look forward to working on more offices for you!

Marlaya is an extremely talented designer. After receiving so many compliments on my commercial office that she designed, I hired her to do my home living room and foyer. She is extremely collaborative and was really able to create a space that truly feels comfortable and personal to us. Highly Recommend!

Thank you so much, Stacy! It was a joy working with you on your office and your home! I'm so elated you and your husband are enjoying your new living room and foyer! Sincerely, Marlaya

When I reached out to Marlaya I had already had a few consultations with other interior decorators, who failed to follow up with me and was not responded to any of my attempts to contact them after the initial consultation. So, when I reached out to Marlaya I had some reservations because of previous experiences. However, once I shared with her my experience she ensured me that if I hired her that would not happen. That is true from day one she has been responsive to requests, ideas, unplanned discussions of the project, etc. When I hired Marlaya I had just moved out of my commercial office space and would be running my business from a home. I needed to have a home office that felt and looked like it was in a downtown high rise with the look and feel of a c-suite. Marylaya gave me just that. One of the best things about working with Marlaya was her willingness to take my suggestions or/and ideas into consideration at the same time ensure that I didn't comprise the feel or look of the design. I highly recommend Marlaya if you are looking for a full-service design where what you want matters and you don't have to lift a finger.

Thank you so much, Nefateria! I have thoroughly enjoyed our time working together! I'm so glad you feel heard and responded to, and I love collaborating with you on a space that feels and looks exactly how you want! I look forward to working with you more!

Studio one nine design blew me away with the service that was provided. I felt that they listened to what I wanted and was able to help me formulate a beautiful layout for my unfinished space. My natural instinct is to design in a box (no curves) and overpopulate the area, thankfully I had them to help me avoid major pit falls. I have no reservations about giving them a 5 star review!
Studio One Nine Design's reply
Thank you so much, Tiffany! I throughly enjoyed helping you design your space and pray that you will enjoy it for years to come! I look forward to working with you again in the future! Sincerely, Marlaya

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

    My signature and most popular service is Full-Service Interior Decorating. Full-Service Interior Decorating is perfect for you if you find yourself overwhelmed with decorating, fatigued by the seemingly endless options and details you need to consider, or worried about making a costly mistake when selecting pieces. Whether you need help with one room or your entire home, I always work hard to ensure your space is designed to better suit your needs and style. With Full-Service, you will receive: a design questionnaire to think intentionally about your space, a furniture layout plan so you can visualize where your items will be placed, and multiple design options including selections for paint and color schemes, large and soft furnishings, fixtures, accessories, and artwork. Once you have approved the designs, you will thoroughly enjoy not having to be concerned with ordering, tracking, storing, or even assembling your items as I will handle these details for you. Lastly, you will enjoy the transformative experience of a Reveal Day; where you leave your space that morning as is, and come back a few hours later, after my team has delivered and styled your items to reveal your new space to you, all without you having to lift a finger. 😊 Full-Service Interior Decorating is currently at an investment of $2000 per room. Message me today to get started!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First we will have an initial video chat where we get to know each other and discuss your project in more detail. Next is the in-person consultation where we meet at your home, business, or Airbnb so I can take photos and measurements of your space and for us to go over the design questionnaire. From there, I'll start creating your designs with your feedback along the way until we create the perfect design for you!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Growing up, I watched my mother and oldest sister keep their homes beautifully decorated. I would also tag along with Grandma to buy and sell antique furniture. It runs in the family, and it's always something I've loved to do -- now I'm just blessed enough to do it for a living!
