“Mary worked with me to turn my sterile looking living and dining room into a stylish and elegant setting by selecting just the right window treatments. She displayed exquisite taste in the color and design of the drapery and pillow fabrics she chose for me. I found her to be very informative and professional while at the same time charming and delightful to work with. I highly recommend her services which in fact I did to my daughter who also is thrilled with her results.”
