"love the way our new home looks and feels"
"My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Molly on multiple projects. We first worked together a decade ago when Molly designed our living/dining room space in our Chicago apartment. Pictures of this project are shown on Molly's website. We loved the finished space so much; we engaged Molly again the following year to design our master bedroom, office and baby's room. Last May, we bought a home in a Chicago suburb and one of our first calls was to Molly. We enjoyed so much the living space she created for us in Chicago we knew without a doubt we wanted Molly to design our new living space. Happily, we used the same color schemes, drapes and furnishings in our new home that Molly helped us choose ten years earlier!! That's a true testament to how tasteful and timeless Molly's designs are. We absolutely love the way our new home looks and feels; and enjoy it to the fullest everyday. Whatever your budget, Molly will work with you to design a space that you will love and enjoy for years and years to come. Our home is a mix of custom pieces and big box items that are visually interesting and blend seamlessly together to create a stunning space. I can't say enough good things about our experience working with Molly. Call her!"

"listens carefully to the needs and taste of the customer"
"Molly McGinness is fantastic. She helped us set up our new house on Cape Cod with tasteful, stylish décor and furnishings. She is super professional and organized. Most importantly she listens carefully to the needs and taste of the customer and clarifies the scope of the project ahead of time. Her expertise then follows...in our case she presented an array of great options and once I selected what I wanted, she ensured complete follow-through on the delivery and installation. I highly recommend Molly."
- Client, Osterville
"impressed by her design instincts and creativity"
"I first met Molly a few years ago shortly after she relocated her business from Chicago to New England. I was immediately impressed by her design instincts and creativity, but also by her ability to do business in a professional, yet warm and friendly manner.
I work for Romo, a fabric and wallcovering company based out of the UK, and it has been a pleasure to see how Molly has included our products into many of her beautiful projects. I look forward to continuing to work with her on many projects down the road."
- Joseph DeChiaro, Romo
"hopefully we will meet again"
"I have done electrical work at Molly's own residence as well as wiring her office/studio. It was a pleasurable experience having her for a customer as well as working with her on two high end projects that she designed and I executed the wiring and lighting. Again it was a pleasure working with Molly in this capacity. Hopefully we will meet again on future projects. "

“nothing we could have imagined”
“Molly helped us over the course of a couple of years to design several rooms of our home. She was extremely efficient in coming back with great ideas, but also was patient when we needed to take our time on decisions or when we just didn’t have the time to focus on the house. She created an amazing built- in area off our kitchen for casual family meals that also provided beautiful, much-needed storage areas. It was nothing we could have imagined ourselves and it has become a wonderful gathering place for our family and friends. She also was great working directly with the vendors, and handled any issues that arose without needing our involvement. We ended up enjoying the process much more than we had imagined.”

“fulfilled my expectations”
“Molly was great…she was able to understand and meet my needs as a single, busy professional. Her style is very collaborative. She was able to guide my decisions when I did not know what I wanted but at the same time fulfilled my expectations when I knew what I did want. I would highly recommend her.”
- Dr. Mikesell, Homeowner, Chicago
“personable and easy to work with”
“Extremely personable and easy to work with, Molly McGinness specializes in creative yet classic designs for residential spaces. Molly appreciates the challenge of designing in a variety of styles, but she usually avoids trends and promotes classic décor with eclectic variations.”

"I would absolutely use her services again."
"We hired Molly to help us decorate our new house, which was essentially a blank slate. She carefully guided us through color, fabric and furniture selection and was also very helpful on a few shopping trips helping to narrow down our selections as it was an overwhelming project. She also gave us a nice variety of floor plans to help conceptualize the space and all in all, was a great professional to work with. She really knows her stuff! I would absolutely use her services again. A pleasure to work with."

"impeccable attention to detail"
"Molly helped us transform our living/dining room space and to create a nursery for a new arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed her approach to design and her impeccable attention to detail. She made the entire process so easy and stress free for us. Molly has great taste and is able to transform her clients' wishes into great design ideas that fit within the budget. We were very pleased with the outcome and regret that she is no longer in the Chicago area to help us with new projects."

"always prepared and focused on fulfilling her client’s needs"
"I have been fortunate to assist Molly with her client's flooring needs for the past couple of years. Molly comes to my showroom always prepared and focused on fulfilling her client's needs. She always respects her client's lifestyle and needs while designing a unique look just for them. Molly is great to work with and is extremely professional on all accounts. My staff and I look forward to assisting Molly with more of her projects in the future."
- Owner, Colony Rug Company
"creative in her ideas and respectful of the client’s needs"
"I have worked with Molly for 3 years and find her to be very creative in her ideas and respectful of the client's needs and budget. In meeting with clients she is low key and presents her extensive knowledge of interior design clearly and is very well prepared in her presentations whether it is window treatments, sofa fabrics or paint colors. Customers find her comfortable to be with and trust that she has their best interests at heart. Her style ranges from bold to subtle depending on the client's taste.
As a sub contractor working with Molly, I see her as very fair, flexible and open to suggestions. I enjoy seeing how she interprets what the customer wants and in painting she comes up with great color palettes."
- Paul Dunn, Cape Cod Associates
“a sophisticated sense of style”
“We are SO grateful for Molly’s guidance! From paint colors to window treatments to rugs; Molly led the way with a sophisticated sense of style, expert knowledge and easy-going, professional approach. She worked within our budget and gave us many elegant options while accommodating artwork and pieces already in our collection. Even though Molly is based on the east coast, we wait until she is in Chicago before making any big decisions---we value her opinion that much!”
- Sarah & Karl Montzka, Chicago
“successful project completion”
“It was a pleasure to work with you on the In-Law project. Your professionalism made the construction process a smooth and enjoyable experience. Your preparation and planning with detailed drawings and specifications with copies for all involved in the project contributed greatly to the successful project completion. I look forward to working with you in the future.”

“stylish update of traditional design”
“The variety of fabrics used in the pillows adds texture to the room and can be interchanged among the sitting areas. Annette Stramesi loves the colors and the “stylish update of traditional design.”
