My husband and I were looking for a pied a terre in the city. We found the perfect location (wide views of Lake Michigan and the city) but it hadn’t been touched since it was built in 1965. We contacted Rebel House Design to help translate what we imagined into reality. Marli far exceeded our expectations with her knowledge of construction, ability to work effectively with our contractor and her incredibly creative approach. She is gifted in her approach of mixing contemporary and vintage pieces as well as finding exceptional art to fill the walls and touch our souls. We couldn’t have imagined living in such a stunning home that is sophisticated, comfortable and artsy all at the same time! Thank you, Rebel House, for helping us create the perfect home!

We worked with Marli for over 15 months while our townhouse was being built. She was part of the process from Day One and made it enjoyable and fun! She used existing pieces and mixed in interesting furniture, artwork, and accessories to give us a beautiful, yet comfortable home. We were totally in sync every step of the way. We are thrilled with our new gorgeous home and look forward to working with Marli again in the future!

I was referred to Rebel House by my sister. I live in Texas and we were buying a 10 year old home that needed updating. Marli was amazing! She took the time to get to know me and what we wanted for our new home. Marli stayed within our budget, yet was able to find unique pieces that kept us from being “cookie cutter”. The end result was amazing. Our kitchen, in particular, is beautiful. She worked with what we liked and took it several levels beyond that.

Marli is incredibly talented with a keen eye and a fabulous sense of style. She can adapt to any design aesthetic you choose—modern, mid-century, classic, traditional, etc.—and pull together looks that will surprise, delight and inspire. She is incredibly artistic, flexible and creative with a vast knowledge of different brands, sources, themes and design approaches. Most importantly, she is an absolute joy to work with—warm, patient, sensitive to your needs and decisive when you need her to be. Not only did she help me discover my own sense of style, I feel like she became part of our family and am so grateful I found her.

My husband and I are completely impressed with the quality, expertise, and creativity of Marli’s work. We have so enjoyed working alongside Marli and truly appreciate the value of having a professional involved in the process. She has a beautiful way of implementing her ideas without stripping any of our own personality from the home. In the end, we are left with a thoughtful and exceptionally well designed home that our family will continue to enjoy for years to come.
