I've always wanted to redo my family room and never knew how to go about it. I didn't want to make mistakes buying the wrong furniture or using the wrong colors and regretting it later. Minol from Studio M Designs helped us pick out a color scheme and offered a lot of advice on how to make the most out of our space. She was very personable and professional, and also very conscious of our time. She had great ideas and really knew how to spruce up my living space , and she's also very flexible and can adapt to your style. I felt super comfortable talking with Minol about my needs and ideas, she took everything into consideration to put something together just for my taste and budget. I would highly recommend Studio M Designs, they definitely will not give you a "cookie cutter" service or result.
As new home owners we wanted to get professional help for our interior design and we hired Minol to advice us on the selection of accent wall color selection and shades selection for few of our rooms. She gave us thoughtful and practical advice on the shade selection. She also gave us good insight on the decor theme for the house. She was very professional, courteous and knowledgeable and we will not hesitate to recommend her services. ( via Houzz Reviews )

Minol your perspective to design is very clean and fresh. I am glad I called you before making any major changes. Be those the big ideas for remodel or ideas to use space efficiently or small pass by tips around the house, just small steps to make big impact, your suggestions were implementable and effective. I am amazed by your availability to support for quick questions even after your visit and your effort to put the Pinterest board that gave me exact idea of what to choose from. If one is going to spend thousands of dollars in getting changes done, I highly recommend to spent very reasonable amount with you to confirm the approach and get a fresh perspective. Your ideas were by far different than the contractors who walked in and proposed ever so typical solutions for changes. I am really glad I called !
1. No babysitting required. Minol really listens. 2. Had her stage & style my office, an advertising agency called Rock Candy Media, and was so impressed with her common sense -- she understands you hire her because you don't have time to do it yourself! 3. She got handymen at prices I could never on my own--truly won't spend your money erroneously. 4. Hired her to handle my shoe situation at home too and she changed my life !
Take a look at what some of my wonderful clients have to say ...
Decorating your own house is very exciting especially when you're doing it for the first time. But it can also get very confusing . With so many ideas in your head , so many options in the market and the many limitations that your apartment comes with, I was a wreck! This balancing act was not for me and that's where Minol's presence was a huge relief to me. Not only did she handle the stressful part of the process, but also made the whole process fun fun fun! She was just as excited about decorating my place as she would with her own place. She had great ideas, great suggestions, good practical sense to turn our ideas into reality and best of all...loved shopping !! What I liked most was that she never let her own ideas override mine. She was open, flexible and always maintained the theme I wanted making sure that I was comfortable with the choices we made. I totally loved having her around, she was a great moral support! For a indecisive person like me, moral support and patience goes a long way and Minol was able to give both. Now if only I could find a life partner like her!

We were looking for someone to help us achieve a modern feel to our somewhat traditional home. Minol did exactly that with her suggestions on paints, colors, décor, lighting, drapery etc. She took her time and explained clearly what changes we needed to make. Her service is definitely designed for "you" in mind. She also worked with our existing décor and made suggestions within our budget. We asked her to focus on certain areas of our home and she was spot on with her recommendations. We are in the process of making those changes and can already see the difference. Not only, she spent time with us, but followed up with pictures and ideas for projects. We loved her services and working with her and will strongly recommend her to others.

Minol has provided great design consultation for our new home.The best part about her design consultation was that it was virtual - and yet so complete! The reason is that she is so good is that she patiently tries to understand what our ideas,dreams,taste is - and then shares with us her super experienced suggestions regarding it. During the consultation , she was always connected,and available to answer our questions.She was able to say so much from just seeing the floor plans - she noticed stuff that we never noticed, that we would need to inform the builder to alter in the design, else it would cause issues. Basically - she designed as per what we want, and got the ideas polished with her expertise! Her blog - I must say is truly exciting to read. I have been a frequent visitor to her blog since the time I got to know about it.She is highly experienced, and still puts her ideas in simple,cool ways, for all of us to understand. I wait for her FB Posts everyday - be it her new ideas she got, or to read about some new design she got inspired by. Thanks Minol - for helping us design our new home! We truly had a pleasant experience!
We used Minol's service to look at options for our flooring. Minol clearly understood our needs and her guidance was clear. She also helped us with paint selection for our home. She is knowledgeable in interior design and is very easy to work with. And while she was at our home for consultation, I also took the liberty to ask questions on my current furniture placement - Minol readily jumped in to help without any hesitation. Thanks Minol for your help !

In December our new house in Bangalore (India) was build complete and ready for all the furnishings. Minol was vacationing in India just at that time. Being that she was on vacation we were rather apprehensive about asking her to be our styling consultant. Not wanting to pass up the opportunity we decided to go ahead and ask her anyways. She readily agreed. From then on it was 2 weeks of non-stop fun. She had so many great ideas that we were completely floored. She not only helped with creatively styling every corner of the house but the biggest help lay in the fact that she went shopping with us -- selecting furniture, carpets, curtains, light fixtures, knick-knacks of all kinds. She made a special effort to listen and cater to our style first, then added her own expert touches creating an end state look that was a perfect compliment to the architecture of our home and a standout style statement that far exceeded our expectations.

Minol applies her uniqueness, simplicity & elegance in her designs . I always look forward to getting ideas from her whenever we plan to add or modify our home design and decor. She always makes herself available and comes with great inexpensive and colorful ideas. I have always loved her choice of colors - they blend perfectly with my personality and ambiance. Minol never hesitates to take time to go out and shop with me to give me a better picture of what she is thinking about ,even if it is as small as buying a curtain holder.
She has helped me decorate our guest room and also gave me great ideas to organize papers (mails, magazines, bills, receipts,coupons, etc) making my life easier. Minol is excellent with decorating kids room and organizing kids stuff. Whenever, I see the kid's room she has designed , I always feel "wow". Not only is the room beautiful but it is very functional to encourage the kid to be independent. I am lucky to have her as my friend. Studio M is the perfect platform for Minol to share her talent and expertise.
