For an extensive remodel to an older home, I decided to hire an Interior Designer to help my husband and I make the numerous decisions that would be required. After interviewing a few designers, we hired Martha. It was the best decision we made. Martha found us a contractor and helped guide us through this lengthy process, serving as our liaison with the contractor's project manager.
What we both so appreciated about Martha is that she took time to get to know us - determining our preferences in architectural and furnishings design when we were not even sure which way to go. Martha helped guide us (and our contractor) through the endless decisions we had to make. What could have been a stressful nine months during the remodel, it ended up being an enjoyable experience and that can be attributed to Martha.

For the year+ we worked with Martha, my husband and I found her to be a true professional and very gifted designer who we trusted completely. As my husband has told everyone who compliments us on our new house "Hiring Martha was the best decision we made"

One of the smartest things we did when first considering a remodel was to hire an interior designer. We asked around town - friends that had remodeled, friends of friends (even a few architects) for a recommendation. Martha was at the top of the list. She quickly grasped our vision and helped us choose a contractor, offering several compatible possibilities. Because of this coordination, she became an important advocate for us throughout the entire job. Her space, design and color sensibilities are excellent. She helped open the blinders to ideas we never would have considered. She’s fun to work with but also no nonsense when it was necessary to keep us on track. It was really surprising to learn what a small percentage of the total remodel budget an interior designer requires. For us, Martha was not only key to a smooth designer, contractor, homeowner relationship but absolutely integral in "pulling it all together." We couldn’t be happier. More...

Martha was amazing! So helpful and efficient. She embraced my style and was quickly able to offer choices that fit my taste beautifully. She truly made this experience not only painless, but fun!
And we did much of this remotely. Martha would unquestionably be my first choice for any future design projects.

We hired Martha Murray to be our designer for our new construction home and it was the BEST decision we made in the project. Without the help of a professional, the many decisions you have to make throughout the build can be overwhelming. Martha was organized, efficient, and detailed -- everything you want/need in a designer. She made the process very easy for us and actually quite fun! Martha knew the type of style we wanted to achieve with the finished house and kept us on track every step of the way. We love how our house turned out and know we could not have done it without Martha's help. We highly recommend Martha and her services for any project, whether it is a small remodel or a complete new construction like ours. You will not regret it! More...

I found Martha through Houzz. From the start, we clicked. She helped me with lighting, furniture selections - including custom work, and finishings (plumbing fixtures/tile/hardwood). She communicated well with me and with the general contractor and made it fun. For me, the end result is gorgeous and very livable. More...

Martha did a fabulous job on my kitchen remodel! She took a dark awkward space and turned it into a bright, functional working space with plenty of counter space and storage. There is not a single thing I would change! It makes me smile every time I walk into it! More...

Martha Murray Design was wonderful to work with and we couldn't be happier with the way the kitchen turned out. Martha has great vision and did a fantastic job at bringing style and harmony to our design project. She was great at nudging us out of our comfort zone, yet staying true to our overall goals and tastes. We also very much appreciated Martha's attention to detail and advocacy on our behalf, ensuring we received the highest quality work and finishes. Martha was a rock for us in the very tumultuous remodel time. More...

Martha Murray is a very well respected and much sought out designer in our town of Bend,Oregon. Creative, efficient, able to meet deadlines, with a keen eye for details and an uncanny ability to "cut through the chase" so that the project moves forward. She is able to recommend the best of the crews ( i.e. contractors) who bend over backwards to work with her clients and herself. Selection of colors, styles, furniture, art etc are arranged to suit her clients tastes however in a discreet way she will guide anyone away from major mistakes and blunders. We did a complete remodel of our kitchen and an adjoining breakfast nook. It could have never happened without Martha's guidance and encouragement and we know we would have ended up with a darker color scheme which would have deprived us of the open and bright feeling our kitchen has. The project was completed in 5 weeks which is a record for this kind of remodel work.
We would recommend Martha Murray without any reservation to anyone in need of design services.

Martha Murray Design was the best investment I made in my new house! I utilized Martha to help me with all of the inside and outside finishes and furnishings for my new house. I had a general sense of the look I wanted for my house, but I lacked the knowledge and sense of style to put it together. This is where Martha made a huge difference for me. She quickly understood what I wanted and dug in to make it happen. Martha has a great sense of style and color. And the most importantly to me, she understands quality finishes and furnishings and guided me through the selection process. Her knowledge and relationships with local businesses was invaluable. And through the whole process Martha stayed on task, worked well with my general contractor, and pushed the subcontractors to perform quality work. I whole heartily recommend Martha Murray Design.

As an artisan tile company, it is critical that we work with showrooms and designers who understand our custom product. Martha Murray has a keen eye for design, understands variation in a hand-made product, and knows how to put it all together. Martha Murray Design is top notch.
