Glam in South Jersey

Posted by Bridget McMullin on July 10, 2019

A case study in kitchen renovation budgets. Our Sicklerville client wanted to break out of the typical kitchen renovation.  They wanted to move their kitchen to their unused dining room and create a large open plan design. They also knew they wanted to add a little bling!     Our client’s budget was initially too low for their goals, which we discussed at our first meeting.  To help them understand the budget, we created several…

Creating the Perfect Home Workspace

Posted by Bridget McMullin on June 27, 2019

  I hate working from home.  This feeling comes from a few places.  First, I am not interested in making my home an office.  I want my home to be a place of relaxation.  Second, I just don’t have an efficient space to work!  Having a dedicated space to spread out, I believe, is the key to a successful home workspace. We have helped many clients transform their home offices into efficient home workspaces.  At…

Should She Stay, or Should She Go?

Posted by Bridget McMullin on June 27, 2018

Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean your house has to age at the same pace. After her husband’s passing, our client was presented with a dilemma: should she renovate her home or move?  She favored remaining in the home long-term, but was worried about her safety as she aged. Her house had been paid off and she didn’t want to “outstrip” the neighborhood. But she also knew that if she moved, she would pay…

Posted by Bridget McMullin on June 19, 2018

Anyone who has watched a few minutes of HGTV or DIY Network programming is familiar with designers using computer-generated visuals for their clients (and their viewers) to “ooh and ahh” over! At MDG, we’ve been using renderings to help clients visualize their spaces for about four years now. In that time, we’ve learned to hone our technique keeping the costs down on a tool that can rapidly get expensive. TV makes it look easy. Click…

MDG Welcomes Sara Mass!

Posted by Bridget McMullin on June 06, 2018

When looking for new team members, I am always in search of the triple threat!  In the theater world, this would be someone who can sing, dance and act equally well. In the context of an interior designer, this would mean he or she could develop new clients, service existing clients with amazing and fresh designs all while project managing multiple jobs from beginning-to-end. Recently, I was lucky enough to be introduced to Sara Mass though…

Confident Color: Furniture for your Future

Posted by Bridget McMullin on February 02, 2018

I am always advocating for my clients to take chances with their style and think outside-the-box. Not scary outside-of-the-box, but to try something that expands their horizons and surprising. It would be a waste of our services not to encourage our clients to try something they never thought of before. It may be a new pattern or textured fabric they’d never considered before. Or, it may be a colorful and fun piece of furniture! In…
