“I have asked MM Interior Design Group for help on a number of design projects over the years and one reason I keep returning to them is their willingness to listen. They always begin a project by soliciting my thoughts and ideas, making me feel like an integral part of the process. They then give me some specific suggestions based upon what I have told them. When an idea does not seem to be working, they are always ready with alternative suggestions. They are also mindful of costs and work well with a budget; they never push me to spend more than I have allotted for a project. And I cannot neglect to mention what a wonderful job they do! I never fail to get compliments on how beautiful my house is – and all the credit goes to MMIDG.”
