“Great to work with!"
We worked with M.O.I. Designs to re-design our kitchen and living/dining common areas. Desirae worked up 2 design schemes to choose from, including cabinet layout, paint colors, countertop, tile, backsplash, furniture and accessories such as lighting and rugs. Her designs were very thoughtful of the functionality and flow of the room but she was also mindful of working in our existing furniture and accessories. She was meticulous in the final drawings of the kitchen and also provided a fully clickable purchase list of the items in the design packet. GREAT to work with, excellent listener, VERY communicative and on top of her deadlines. I would recommend M.O.I. Designs to anyone looking for interior design help!

“My husband and I are so thankful for her vision!"
This Spring we bought a fixer upper. We gutted the place. We were overwhelmed with the number of design choices that would be required. Thankfully, our broker suggested we work with Desirae. We are so glad we did. She made sure our entire house flowed. She guided us in the selection of: wood flooring, paint, bathroom tile, new kitchen cabinets and countertops. Now our fixer upper feels like home. My husband and I are so thankful for her vision and ability to get to know our family so she could best design for our needs.

Desirae has amazing style. Whether it is for the overall design or the little details, she has helped me countless times to pick out furniture, decor, or my favorite lighting. Desirae takes the time to get to know your style or help find what your style is. Thank you so much for your countless hours and time!

“Desirae at M.O.I. Designs was the MOST helpful and easiest to work with!"
My wife and I had the brilliant idea of opening up a sandwich shop without much experience in the self-employment world, let alone the food industry. Among the numerous service providers that we enlisted to help us on this endeavor (contractors, equipment specialists, etc.), Desirae at M.O.I. Designs was the MOST helpful and easiest to work with.
We needed someone to come up with creative design solutions all the while staying within our larger vision for the space and budget constraints and Desirae flawlessly delivered. She keeps her delivery commitments (which, when dealing with contractors can be an issue) and is able to go to the drawing board for ideas and solutions when needed. Additionally, Desirae was very clear on her deliverables and accommodating to our needs.
We are extremely satisfied with our working with M.O.I. Designs and Desirae. We plan on using her for our future locations other design needs.

“She definitely has a magic touch!"
Desirae came to my house to help me de-clutter and lighten up my space. She could so easily see what needed to change so she rearranged and helped me get rid of things I didn't need. She also placed my furniture so that my dining room seemed more open, she definitely has a magic touch! Also, I didn't have to buy a thing, she really is an amazing designer!

Desirae is just what I needed! I was looking for someone who was moderately priced and could provide me with some quick design suggestions for a home office. Her $200 consultation with the option to upgrade to a bit more for additional guidance was perfect. In an hour, she had come up with a layout I wouldn't have thought of on my own and found me a reasonably priced desk. She also gave me some suggestions about where to place shelves and wall hangings. She also provided several idea boards with options for rugs and curtains. She's down to earth and easy to talk with. Very glad I found her!

Desirae at M.O.I. Designs was excellent! We had a tight budget and a challenging project to refurnish and warm up our dumpy basement. She gave us a great layout and furniture ideas and even provided us with links to all the products she recommended. That was super helpful as online shopping can usually get really overwhelming.
Now our basement is a movie room, music room/office and a child's play room. We're already spending a ton of time down there. I would highly recommend Desirae to anyone and we will definitely use her again!

My husband and I worked with Desirae on a full remodel of the first floor of our home. We interviewed a total of 3 designers and selected Desirae out of that process. We felt really comfortable hiring Desirae because she was able to clearly articulate her design process and was respectful of our scope. For instance, we were not interested in having a designer do furniture selection-we wanted someone to help us with paint colors, tile, cabinet finish and lighting fixtures-and she was perfectly fine with that scope. Other designers declined our job because they clearly were insistent on selling us a lot of custom furniture.
Now full caveat-I’ve never done a reno this big and have never worked with a designer, but my husband and I felt this was money very well spent. She was able to take our respective styles and meld them into something more harmonious and elevated. She was timely and invested in all of her work and very respectful and resourceful with our budget.
