    Bacon Road

    You are always on the go, so you want your project to run as smoothly as possible. For this project the client needed the home fully refreshed and furnished in time for them to move in. Tapping into many of our design resources we were able to paint every room in this 8,000 square foot Gold Coast stunner, clean all of the crystal chandeliers, and furnish this entire estate within the client’s requested time frame. The client was thrilled with the results and so were we!

    Man Cave Design

    We love a client who wants to have a little — or a lot — of fun. This bachelor wanted a space for pure enjoyment during his downtime. We went all-in with a custom wet bar, pub-height seating, a game room complete with professional billiards table and card playing area, and multiple sports viewing opportunities with intuitively placed TV screens. Other highlights included a separate screening room for movie nights outfitted with lounge seating, a barber shop for his weekly grooming session (why leave home if you don’t have to?), and a spa room for massages and physical therapy. We handled the framing and display of our client’s extensive collection of sports memorabilia and utilized those pieces to create a display that feels like a more stylish version of Cooperstown. A sneaker room, guest room, and two full baths rounded out this Man Cave project.

    Beautiful People Salon

    Luxury is an essential element to any high end spa or salon experience. Beautiful People Salon came to use looking for a space that would transcend the purely decorative and offer an interactive experience for visitors while creating branding and advertising opportunities for this business. We designed an "instagrammable wall” composed of faux greenery, subway tile, an attention-grabbing neon sign that greets all who enter, “Hello, beautiful people.” A hanging swing completes the vignette, enticing salon patrons to snap a photo of their new looks and post to social media. Adjacent to this focus wall is a product wall featuring a black and white sketch floral design where the salon’s logo is prominently displayed. In place of generic salon retail stands we created a playful product display using vintage frames and custom shelving.

  • "Her attention to detail, her vision, and her knowledge were flawless."
    My experience with Marlaina Teich and her staff, while renovating my salon space, was exceptional. Marlaina really took the time to understand how I envisioned expressing myself for my salon. She captured everything I dreamed of through her work. Her attention to detail, her vision, and her knowledge were flawless. I would, without hesitation, recommend her. 5+ stars all around.

  • “She made this big job so much easier!”
    I cannot say enough to describe my experience with Marlaina. I recently built a house and Marlaina and her team were a part of it from the beginning. She helped with the blueprints to the small decorating details and everything in between (tiles, fixtures, stones, doors, knobs and many other details). She was available day and night. We shopped together and made decisions together. She was on site when we needed her, always prepared and professional. She made this big job so much easier!! My house is beautiful!! Thank you Marlaina!! I love you !!!

  • “She made the entire process smooth - and super fun! - from start to finish.”
    We absolutely loved working with Marlaina! She was able to create a cohesive space through the first floor of our home and it turned out better than we could have even imagined. She took all of our ideas and made them better. She knew when to push us outside of our comfort zone with certain pieces and now they are some of our favorites! She made the entire process smooth - and super fun! - from start to finish. We can’t wait to work with Marlaina on future projects!

  • “[They were] an absolute pleasure to work with.”
    Marlaina and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. Her expertise transformed the entire second level of my home. Can't wait to redo the first floor with her. She worked with my budget and exposed me to decorating ideas that I didn't even know I would love. Truly a great experience.

  • “I walk into my home and am so happy.”
    Marlaina and her team have turned my house into my dream home. They took the time to understand my style, presented me with many choices, and were patient throughout the whole process. They were there for every furniture delivery to make sure items were perfect, almost daily while the contractors were renovating, and were available to answer questions whenever I had one. They are full service and the vendors they choose are fantastic. I walk into my home and am so happy. Guests walk into my home and say “wow!” I can’t wait to do my next project with MTD.
