Through my company, Marlene Oliphant Designs, it has been my privilege to redesign and remodel homes throughout the Los Angeles area as well as in Florida and the Midwest. As a Certified Interior Designer since 2002, I have become an expert at helping Clients maximize the beauty and potential of their homes.
By far the most exciting part for us is providing the final Big Reveal, when everything comes together on delivery day and my Clients experience the thrill of seeing their beautiful new space for the first time! There is just nothing like it and it is why we love helping our clients fall in love with their homes.
My Clients tend to be on-the-go professionals who desire not only creativity but great service, convenience and peace of mind. We strive for a happy collaboration because we care very much about how our Clients will feel in their new spaces. We also offer cutting-edge technology to every Client, from detailed design drawings for floor plans to full-on remodels, to full color renderings. This allows Clients like you to view our proposed designs with all of your selected furnishings and finish materials, so you will know exactly how your new spaces will look before you commit to the design.
I am the only award-winning designer who has over 15 years of set design experience, a former editor of Better Homes & Gardens Magazine, a published author of over 30 cookbooks (a.k.a.Marlene Brown), educated in Interior Design and a Certified Interior Designer. As you can tell, kitchens are one of my specialties, but my design expertise goes much further. I have designed everything from a single room redesign, to whole-house remodels for estates and second homes. I also provide design services for small offices for greater efficiency and practical working solutions.
There are many details to consider on even the simplest project, and we are masters at managing the details. If you are interested in working with a highly experienced designer who places your wishes at the forefront of your project, we would be happy to discuss the possibilities with you. Call for a no-obligation, introductory consultation. For more information and a detailed outline of how we work, please visit our website listed above.
