We can explain how we work and tell you what to expect but hearing about us in reviews from our clients means so much more. Read what our clients have to say…
We are the Finnegans and we are thrilled to provide this recommendation for Marva Don. My husband and I live an older ranch home and have a five year plan to update its decor and remodel some of the rooms. We decided to start with our family room. I had lots of ideas for the room but found myself quickly becoming overwhelmed. I knew I needed help from an expert and decided to hire an interior designer. When I came across Marva Don’s Decorating Den website I knew I had found the person who would be part of this exciting journey.
From our first consultation meeting Marva put my husband and me at ease. She has a very engaging presence and we had an instant rapport. Marva spent a lot of time getting to know us and learning about our vision for the room. We decided to hire Marva to design the room and also to purchase the furniture because of her direct relationship with the manufacturers and the extensive product selection.
We found Marva to be an extremely talented designer. She was able to help us create an inviting and comfortable room while always being mindful of our budget. Marva even convinced my husband to do a bit of remodeling in the room, which gave us more useful space and made the room look bigger and brighter.
We also really liked that Marva stayed with us through the entire installation process and was our advocate for any damage issues that naturally occur when transporting furniture from the manufacturer to the home. And during the entire project we continually saw the high performance expectations that Marva had of herself and anyone who worked on the project.
Marva is an exceptional person who really enjoys her work and it shows magnificently in the final reveal. We are now looking forward with excitement to working with Marva on our next project, which is re-imagining our living room.
Marva Don has been making my house beautiful since I moved into it 4 years ago. We started with my guest bathroom where I really wanted a “Wow” factor. Marva Don came up an amazing design for a shower curtain. My guests always compliment this room and the shower area and usually do say “Wow!”. Next, Marva Don found some furniture and rugs that were perfect for my entry way, master bedroom and bath.
Now, we have just launched into the biggest project of all – to completely refurnish my Living Room and re-decorate the Guest Bedroom. Marva Don is so much fun to work with. She is amazingly creative while also being conscious of details. She works to stay within my budget. Marva Don is a fantastic designer. I will be sad when I run out of projects to involve her in!
“It is an honor to sing the praises of Marva Don Card with Decorating Den Interiors. Marva Don is very sensitive about learning the homeowner’s style, sensibilities, and in creating designs that reflect these. Her designs embraced my interest in a fairly uncluttered interior but still showed me ways in which additions to the décor could warm up and personalize a room. Everything we purchased is something I cherish. I never felt “forced” into a decision, nor did I ever regret any of the decisions I made based on her amazing expertise and keen eye.The rooms done by Marva Don are lovely—extremely comfortable and functional.
I appreciate the way she has worked with items that I already owned and worked them into a new design. The subcontractors she referred me to were reliable and responsible people who did excellent work. One of the reasons I have enjoyed our journey together is because of the huge selection Marva Don has provided, but also because of her helpfulness in narrowing the choices for me. Everything we’ve done reflects the vast amount of time she invested in getting “just the right” look, instead of settling for “good enough.”
Marva Don respected my “price points.” I told her what I wanted to spend and she kept it very close to my desired budget. For many people, this is one of the most important qualities, and one reason why people are “afraid” of decorators—they’re afraid that they’ll be pushed into spending more than they want to.
Finally Marva Don is reliable, punctual and very professional. Her kindness and warmth always make me feel I am more than just a customer. She is patient, takes an interest in my personal life, and is always positive. I will continue to enlist her services in the future and will highly recommend her to all my friends and family!”
“We engaged your professional assistance for our new home in Eagle, ID, through a mutual acquaintance, and over the phone. Your friendliness, and engaging personality came through over the phone, in such a way, that I knew you were the right person to help us with our remodeling project.
I was very happy, after speaking with you a few times, with the questions, advice and ideas you offered, before we even had an opportunity to meet, in person. Once we arrived in Eagle to pull things together for our home, you were always accessible, accompanying us to showrooms, and on your own time, find whatever we were looking for to complete our remodel. You are genuinely interested in ‘who’ we are, and the type of home we hope to create. Marva Don, you are a delight to work with, extremely resourceful and make things happen with ideas that work and fit into our plans.
I will be very say when our remodel was complete, as I have looked forward to seeing you, and/or speaking with you, on nearly a daily basis. I believe our excellent working relationship has also become a good friendship, and I look forward to doing other fun things together.
Thank you for being an integral part of our remodel and relocation.”
“I have known Marva Don Card for close to 30 years both professionally and personally. I have the deepest respect for her. I have seen her approach to customer care as well as her communication skills, and have been impressed.
She follows thru with what she says she is going to do. She was responsible for four business remodels since I have known her. The difference brought about a new interest in the business resulting in more income generated and positive energy.”
“We used Marva Don to help us with the selection of materials for our new home and the decorating.
During the construction phase, Marva helped with the selection of flooring, granite, tiles, paint color, and lay-out. Although the builder has a designer and design studio, we wanted to have someone not familiar with their typical selections, and who could offer a fresh perspective.
Once in our home Marva assisted us in choosing our window coverings and decorating the home. We purchased new bedroom furniture, bar stools, wine cabinet, rugs, paintings and accessories.
We are very pleased with the quality of products we purchased from Decorating Den and very impressed with the professionalism of Marva. She listened to our wants and needs and was attentive to our budget. Her ability to listen and put together a design with ideas from both my husband and I was enjoyable. I would highly recommend Marva Don to anyone in need of decoration assistance.”
