I have engaged Marlene on three occasions now - two have been homes I live(d) in and also my work place.
Marlene asks the right questions at our initial meeting to figure out who we were and what we would like to achieve with each project. She has been spot on with her recommendations and has always been happy to go back to find other options if we felt something wasn't quite right (although it usually was the first time!).
On this last renovation project, I asked her to design the layout for the kitchen and bathrooms and her ideas have been amazing.
