The Mardesign difference,
Mardesign is on a mission to create stylish spaces that tenants and buyers will love to call ‘their space.’ This means ensuring a high return on investment, reduced voids, high occupancy rates, more long-term tenancies, and increased property value for our clients.
Our clients come from various industries and have investment experience, but they have a few things in common; they are time-poor and overwhelmed by the thought of designing their own properties. By investing in top-quality interior design services at the start of their project, they’ll get access to industry-leading expertise that will save them considerable money and time in the long run.
Mardesign's expertise is wide-ranging, but here are some of the services that Raquel and her team can assist with:
- Interior space planning

- Furniture, art & accessories selections, and procurement
- Property styling and staging
