•   Furniture Selections and Design

MKD can help you choose the right furniture for your space, taking into account your desired style (contemporary design, shabby chic, etc.) and factors such as scale, purpose and budget. MKD is also able to pull from thousands of product lines to custom design furniture exactly to your liking, including fabrics, finishes and sizes.

•   Custom Drapery, Pillow and Bedding Design

Nothing adds warmth and depth to a room like the pattern and texture of fabric. MKD, with access to hundreds of thousands of designer fabrics, can create custom draperies, curtains, bedding, and pillows to the exact requirements of your space and in any style imaginable.

•   Interior Architectural Design

This is what really sets a space apart and easily becomes a dramatic focal point in a room. A custom designed fireplace, built-ins, a dramatic stairway design, decorative wall and ceiling treatments such as wainscoting, coffers and beams. . . these are all architectural elements that MKD can design to fit your personal style while complimenting the architectural style of the home.

•   Artwork Consultation and Accessorizing

Nothing sets the tone or direction of a space like artwork. MKD has both local and national sources of original or reproduction pieces covering all genres, media and size. If you have an existing piece that you want to build off of, let MKD design the perfect space around it. And while artwork can set the tone, the right accessories (and number of them) can put the finishing, personal touches on a space that will reflect who you are.

•   Lighting Design and Consultation

If you are building a new home or simply remodeling a bathroom, proper lighting and lighting placement is key. Let MKD design a lighting plan that works for the tasks that take place in each area of your home or office.

•   Fixture and Equipment Selection

Whether you are shooting for a modern design, tuscan or even French counrty, the right fixtures can make or break the look. MKD has a wide network of dealers to supply light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, appliances and decorative hardware.

•   Green Design

For the environmentally conscious client, MKD has access to thousands of "green," environmentally friendly products such as counter tops, furniture, fabrics, paint and even reclaimed wood flooring.

•   Color Selection and Consultation

The right color can make or break a space. I am often asked, "What color should I paint my walls?" In home decorating, there is never an easy answer to this question, as many factors come into play. Want to go bold? Neutral? MKD has the knowledge to consider all of the factors in your home (and out) to assist you in picking out the perfect color,

•   Space Planning

One of the most important aspects of a well designed space is how the space works and flows. How furniture is arranged and fits into the space, how surfaces are placed within proximity of seating, how traffic will flow through the space. . . all should be considered. This is especially important if considering a kitchen remodel, as the proximity of appliances and work surfaces is an important consideration in a well functioning kitchen.

•   Designer Textiles and Rugs

Like many products, MKD has access to thousands of rugs, both locally and special order, that are perfect for any space. Hand knotted wool oriental rugs, modern geometrics, jute or even cow hide can all be incorporated into your custom designed space.

•   Audio/Visual and IT Integration

Considering a home theater, in-wall speakers or motorized blinds? MKD will work with an integrated home entertainment and technology expert to incorporate all of your technology needs neatly into your space.

•   Finish Selection and Consultation

Whether you are shooting for a modern design, tuscan or even French counrty, the right fixtures can make or break the look. MKD has a wide network of dealers to supply light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, appliances and decorative hardware.

•   Project Management

Too busy to oversee the remodel or update? Let MKD help. MKD offers project management services to oversee, inspect and coordinate the contractors and specialized labor required for your project.

•   Universal/Aging in Place Design

This concept is one in which design choices are made with the consideration of any and all possible users of the space, regardless of age or physical condition.
