"I really enjoyed working with Maja through the process of redesigning my finished basement and outdoor patios. Not only does she have an excellent sense of style, she picks up on exactly what you are looking for almost immediately and even with little direction. She is a joy to work with. She is very calm and understanding throughout the entire process. I never felt pressured. I even learned a lot about new, affordable products and design techniques that I can incorporate into other rooms!"
Goal: Inject a fresh, modern look into an existing deck and patio space creating an inviting outdoor zone.
Ingredients for one sleek, styled outdoor space: zippy lime, slick silver, and bold black and white. Mix them all together and enjoy with family and friends. An already-in-place sectional is the perfect host for graphic pillows and area rugs help to give each space purpose and additional style with their patterns. Adorable outdoor wall decor reminds you of one of the best things about summer nights and large lanterns will glow for as long as you might like to linger.
Goal: Use a palette of crisp whites and blues to give this master bedroom a swanky, tropical hotel feel and make every day feel like a vacation.
Tropical , meet glamorous.... I think you two are going to hit it off splendidly. A woven seagrass bed, leafy palm fronds and not-quite cobalt bamboo-inspired nightstands bring the beachy feels. Sand colored x-benches, a glossy gold mirror and shapely lamps keep things from feeling too casual and add some luxury. Relax, recharge and repeat.
"Maja is absolutely fantastic! I am very into interiors but often times have difficulty making final decisions on what items to bring into a space. Maja is a godsend and with my daughter's nursery I went right to her from the start. She came up with the most beautifully curated vision board. From there we collaborated on which specific items would make it into the space and I made my purchases. She guided every decision from paint to furniture placement to ultimately create a room I truly love. Since then she has designed my guest bedroom which I am pulling together piece by piece. She will absolutely be involved in my future design plans throughout my home to help create a cohesive flow from room to room. She is caring, creative, and extremely personable. It is clear that her sole focus is to create beautiful spaces tailored specifically to each individual client's style. I would and do recommend her to all of my family, friends, and real estate clients."
Goal: Create a calming and quiet nursery with a traditional and formal feel for one lovely baby girl.
This beauty of a space is anchored by the deep, rich wood tones of the dresser and crib. Gentle green magnolia framed prints get along just lovely with the crisp, classic soft peach stripes behind them on the wall. Existing cornice boxes get trimmed out with antique brass nail heads to show off their shape and simple, soft velvet curtain panels up the formal factor. An elegant yet comfy glider and ottoman in a timeless neutral will see hours of good, old-fashioned snuggle time.
Goal: Turn an attic space used as a master bedroom and small office into a quiet sanctuary for two.
A mid-century modern loving couple was looking for a place with a slightly global and eclectic feel to retreat to after a busy day. Chairs, nightstands and an accent table set the mid-century modern tone with their lines and colors. Global and eclectic touches are brought in with a Moroccan leather pouf, quirky wall decor and a bold, graphic palm leaf print wallpaper (to be used as a backdrop for the amazing DIY upholstered headboard). The mostly neutral palette helps keep this space feeling calm and restful while it gets warmed up with some greenery, brass accents, textured bedding and a feels-great-on-your-feet shag rug. Happy place, indeed.
"Working with Maja has exceeded my expectations. Her questionnaire and joint Pinterest board were a clear and simple way to communicate my wants and hopes for the room. She listened to and understood my vision for the space. And her design expertise added elements to the room that I never knew I wanted and really loved in the final product. Maja was attentive and responsive to any questions and welcomed honest feedback. She is able to take your dream pieces and find that same look within your budget. I can't wait to work on another room with Maja!"
Goal: Design a family friendly space with a farmhouse vibe and a nod to things nautical.
This spaces carefully blends a love of all things farmhouse with coastal touches that hold sentimental meaning for this family. A fireplace wall makeover starts off this transformation with distressed pine boards, a set of rustic bookshelves and plans for a warm stacked stone fireplace surround. The room was designed around chairs, a couch and a media cabinet the family owned and wanted to keep. Captains' mirrors, compass and fishermen's net inspired pillows, and a vintage framed map of Newport, RI bring in those special nautical touches without being overwhelmingly coastal. And that perfect driftwood trestle-style console table? If a farmhouse and a beach cottage ever had a baby, this would be it.
Goal: Transform an outdated second floor-bathroom to a much more "of the moment" space while remaining true to the style of the older home it lives in.
A neutral gray and white palette will stand the test of time and also gives this room one seriously calming vibe. Streamlined fixtures with classic shapes and lighting with crisp, clean lines won't need to be swapped out anytime soon (if ever!). Timeless subway tiles give a major facelift to the tub and shower surround while porcelain floor tiles add the look of grayed, distressed wood. Vintage patent prints for the wall take you back but remain current thanks to the high contrast of the black and white and sleek frames. And let's not forget one swoon-worthy vanity that feels more like an amazing piece of furniture than just a place to store your toothpaste.
"You can’t wrap your head around the joy that Maja’s design has essentially brought so many people or the compliments that have come from everywhere. My sister and her husband, my entire family, our friends and even strangers are talking about how beautiful it all is. There really is something to be said about being able to create a warm and beautiful place that can totally affect someone’s mood. Maja has such a gift."
Goal: Create a living room that would serve as the backdrop for making tons of family memories in a traditional New England beach home.
Comfy. Cozy. Coastal. Check, check, check. This room was set down its design path right away thanks to some already purchased pieces (sofa, loveseat, some tables and lamps). The color palette and Americana vibe are inspired by a beautiful rustic flag handcrafted by the talented homeowner. Pops of red and blue build off the existing sandy, neutral color palette and help to tie the entire space together. A seagrass rug, rope lanterns and beachy accents remind you that the ocean is your neighbor. Bring on the cocktails, laughs and lazy days.
Goal: Create a fun, western themed room for a cowboy-loving 8 year old.
Take a look at this log bunk bed, partner. Not only does this piece set the stage for the space, it's also super useful whether the futon is used for curling up and reading about the wild west or for sleepover guests. Pops of red add some fun and color while natural jute ottomans add some texture and extra seating for friends. Sprinkle in some stars, galvanized tin touches, wagon wheel lighting, and a faux cowhide rug and end up with a perfect room for a little guy and his best buddies to hang in.
