Marie-Rose is detail-oriented, organized, and a true professional. She is extremely responsible and responsive, and fun to work with. Marie-Rose will go above and beyond to ensure you are happy and satisfied with the outcome while staying on budget. We felt stress-free, relaxed and confident as we worked with her to get our condo furnished for vacation rentals. The best part about Marie-Rose is she truly embodies the Aloha Spirit, because she truly cares for her clients and takes pride in her work.

Claire Bean | Hali’I Kai Waikoloa Resort

“My project with Marie-Rose entailed the complete re-styling of a condo I had recently purchased as a vacation rental property. The unit needed all new décor, including flooring, countertops, paint, furniture, art and accessories. Marie-Rose did a tremendous job pulling all of this together, especially considering that the pandemic made everything more challenging. The result was exactly what I had hoped: a light, bright space with a wonderful fresh appeal. It was a real pleasure to work with Marie-Rose – she has a great eye and flair for design, and I would highly recommend her to anyone contemplating a project such as this.”

"When we bought our Hawaii dream condo, it did not feel Hawaiian at all. We wanted it to be something we would love coming to and portrays the Hawaiian spirit. In the first few minutes of meeting Marie-rose, we knew we'd picked the right partner to collaborate with on our home design. Her creativity, attentiveness, and attention to the smallest details are highly commendable. Her local connections to furniture stores and artists are most valuable. She helped find so many things we wouldn't otherwise have found. In some cases, we had a local artist build something from scratch. All of this happened during shelter-in-place. We loved the end result and we constantly get compliments from family, friends and Vacation Rental visitors. If you have plans to renovate your home, we would highly recommend Marie-rose."

My team and I enjoy collaborating with Marie-Rose to support our clients–vacation rental property owners–who have interior design and remodeling projects. She shares our values of professionalism, flexibility, and excellence in customer service. Marie-Rose’s eye for design, attention to detail, and ability to be fluid with the challenges of managing logistics and expectations on the Big Island are what make her our “go to” designer.

Michael Evans | Country Club Villas

As a design-challenged individual, I feel very fortunate to have found Marie-Rose. She has a great design eye and works hard to stay at or below the budget. She has transformed my condo and I trust her implicitly.

Josh Tappero | Premier Restoration

Marie Rose was instrumental in completing our job on time and within budget. She has a great eye for detail and was marvelous at bridging that gap between the client and myself the contractor.

Mike Fromme | Construction Services Hawaii

Marie-Rose is by far the best interior designer I’ve worked with in my many years as a general contractor. She not only has great taste of course, but is also great at managing projects and acting as a liaison between our mutual clients and vendors. And she’s simply a pleasure to work with!
