Client Experience
"I spent an hour with Marie Carson of M. Elle Design and I was completely blown away! She was able to provide so much direction, support and resources in one hour I couldn't believe it. I had her review 2 big rooms and she went through paint colors, lighting, furniture, and rugs...everything! She showed me examples and resources so I could do it on my own. I will absolutely use her again. I would give her 6 stars if that were an option. Incredible experience! Thank you!"

"Thank you so much to The Expert for creating this platform. My Zoom with Marie Carson was perfect in that I needed another Designer's opinion of a room in my own home, but it needed to be a Designer I trust, follow and respect. She is such a professional!"

"As a long-time fan, it was a joy to work with Marie on my second home in the mountains! She offered logical solutions to a challenging multiple rug situation I have, as well as a source that meets my needs. Marie also was able to give me the spacial guidelines I desperately needed for a breakfast nook in my kitchen, as well as wonderful sources. I will not hesitate to reach out to her again if I am in need of design advice."
