I found Lannetta to be very eager to learn more information, dive into any situation head first, and provide support well beyond her experience level. She is bright, articulate, and professional, and is always patient with clients and users. On the design side, I found her sensibilities to be on point and centered. She does not offer designs that are too trendy or lack responsiveness to the context. I would recommend Lannetta highly.

Former Assistant Director at a local university

I worked with Lannetta on the opening of a 70’s style pizza place/hang out. Lannetta’s eye for the period specific design elements was outstanding; beaded curtains, post modern seating, colors and design really made the place feel fun and retro. Her focus on to the budget details and timeline issues allowed the project to finish on time and on budget. I strongly recommend Lannetta as a designer and planner.

Lannetta listened to our goals and came up with very creative ideas for a truly unique design that fits us perfectly. I would highly recommend her company to anyone!

Tony Zimmerman

President of Zimmerman Building Company

When COVID-19 hit my husband and I were both forced to work at home.  We live in a small apartment, and the only space available for me was our bedroom. Maraye Design Studio came up with solutions that were flexible and within budget. She created a beautiful mood board that showed a couple of the possibilities that could work for my space. She also helped me to think about new options in my space to work from home. I was able to make some adjustments to make my work from home experience more productive and comfortable.
