Facelift

Posted by Bridget McMullin on August 07, 2019

Refacing your cabinets is a great way to save money as long as your cabinets are worth it! When our clients bought their new home, they felt the kitchen did not quite fit the style of the home. MDG agreed on that point. The cabinet selection felt builder’s grade for such a custom space.  They did not want to go into a full renovation but wanted to update the space and add a hood that…

Where Kids Rule – Playroom Dos & Don’ts

Posted by Bridget McMullin on July 24, 2019

  Basement playrooms are an interesting animal depending on where you’re at in the journey of parenthood.  New parents tend to get extremely anxious about their three-year-old playing on another floor in their home while the seasoned parent (usually one with a second child) is happy for the peace and quiet. Without a doubt, the overwhelming accumulation of STUFF by that small human being you call your child will soon overwhelm your home. So, the…

Glam in South Jersey

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.

Creating the Perfect Home Workspace

Posted by Bridget McMullin on June 27, 2019

We have helped many clients transform their home offices into efficient home workspaces.  At…

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…
