"I have worked with Marina in the redesign and renovation of our professional offices. At all times, Marina was professional, well prepared, and armed with targeted samples for consideration. She asked many questions in the planning stages so that she could maximize our needs in the designated space we have. She opened my eyes to color and texture combinations that I would have never considered - a true 'think outside of the box' experience. The end result was well beyond the beauty expressed on Marina's very detailed sample board."

"Design Studio M provided design services for our retail and medical offices in Massachusetts which included extensive custom cabinetry and display cases. Marina Shektman worked closely with our staff to analyze their myriad of tasks so as to best identify their needs. Her design work was all encompassing, including new paint color schemes, carpeting, lighting, furniture, and art work. To say that she transformed our offices is an understatement. The staff was so uplifted by the new updated look that their outlook and enthusiasm was palpable. Marina's talents came to the fore with her conceptualization of space design. She knew instinctively what was practical as well as how to uplift our retail outlets with inspiring colors and patterns. A joy to work with from the first meeting to the last installation, she has continued to keep abreast with any issues going forward. She listened to us and she moved us along the process expertly. A nine month process from beginning to end, was made easier with Design Studio M."

"Marina assisted me with the post renovation decoration of 4 rooms, including family room bedroom, office and den. The scope of work included furnishings layout, selecting custom carpets, wall colors and a complete suite of office furniture. She was at all times budget sensitive and on top of the schedule and performance of the vendors selected, always willing to go out of her way to get answers to questions and identify resources for the job. I have no hesitation in providing an excellent reference for Marina and Design Studio M."

- Ed H., Weston MA

"I have known Marina for eight years and collaborated with her on three restaurants, one retail space and one high end residential project. She has always demonstrated high professionalism: technical expertize and knowledge of materials, thorough understanding of aesthetic issues and compliance with schedule requirements. Equally important is her willingness and ability to listen to the clients and focusing on their needs. Her demeanor is impeccable, and working with her is always a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend her to any client."
