As an architect, I’ve worked with Marlene Friedberg for nearly twenty years, starting with her own house and continuing with her clientele and investment properties. While being successful in business, she treats every project as a unique experience, striving for the perfection of her client’s tastes and desires. Marlene is very thorough, responsive, organized, and passionate about all aspects of her business.

I was looking for a designer when I purchased my new apartment in Manhattan. I was overwhelmed with all that I had to do. A friend referred me to Marlene. When we met Marlene took the time to learn about what my needs were and my sense of style. I have two active sons — a teenager and soon to be teenager — and utilizing every inch of my new space was paramount. Marlene worked closely with the architect and the general contractor to make sure that the project was going seamlessly. Her eye for design is spot on. When she first walked in she had an immediate vision to make the most of my space. She helped me select the right lighting, molding, paint colors and wall paper. She even picked out accessories that I love. Marlene was so patient and really wonderful to work with. She was always armed with great ideas and eager to execute. You can really tell that she loves what she does and it reflects in her work. After working with Marlene my contemporary modern Manhattan apartment became a reality.

My husband and I are snowbirds and we hired Marlene to renovate our two-bedroom apartment in Boca Raton, Florida. We had never used a designer before and Marlene had a warm and cheerful personality. We are retired and had a limited budget, she was very creative and had excellent interior design concepts which lent itself well to the on-going search of finding just the right “things” for our new home. She has a great sense of style and color and works patiently and skillfully bringing together any ideas we had. Marlene gave us the apartment of our dreams and my husband and I couldn’t be happier.

In October 2016, Marlene came into my home for a design consultation for renovating our Master Bathroom. Marlene is very professional, asks great questions, is interested in the responses, has a beautiful sense of style and is/was very creative in helping to stay on budget. Marlene was able to take all our ideas, comments, likes, dislikes, concerns and helped us create a beautiful Master Bathroom. Marlene was always available and was on top of everything (measuring, coordinating deliveries with contractors, etc). Working with Marlene was a great experience. I would highly recommend her!
