Margarida is an extremely knowledgable and comprehensive designer. First she got to know my husband and I before she started helping us choose things for our new home. She then established the style we mutally liked. Before the house was built Margarida came to the Decor Centre of our new builder with us helping us choose important structural changes to the house and navigated us through all the builders options and where we would get the most 'bang for the buck'. We would have never thought of many of her ideas and we are thrilled we listened to her. Even the builder was impressed with some of her structural decisions. Then the fun began, she helped us choose custom hard wood flooring, marble flooring with mosaics she designed especially for us, and kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. The end result....beautiful and even better than my husband and I envisioned. I highly recommend her, especially for new home owners who want to start off right!!
