New Look

Welcome to the NEW and improved! Don’t you think the beginning of summer is the perfect time to debut a new look?

“Out with the old and in with the new” as they say, and this new dynamic website will offer many improvements and upgrades to make your visit more enjoyable and fun.

As a designer who focuses on both indoor and exterior spaces, my cohesive design approach is about infusing Mother Nature’s colors and texture to create a harmonious space that blurs the lines between the two.

It’s the best of the best when it comes to how you receive information and how to get inspired. I approach the writing of all my articles as if I was talking to an old friend; I’m talking to you – not at you. Your kind words, e-mails, laughter, devotion and continued support over the years have truly touched my heart. Thank you for that.

So experience this new site for yourself, and let us know what you think. Take the latest poll, add a comment, or even e-mail me a photo of your design dilemmas. Life on Mar’s just got better – and able to do all that and so much more.

Again, thanks for your support; please share my site with your friends. After all, everyone likes to show off their new look, and I’m no exception! Besides, the cyber-universe is much more fun when you can say you’ve been to Mar’s!
