“Working with Mimi is a dynamic process with a great result every time. Mimi listens and prepares a thoughtful assembly of ideas, colors, finishes but the most valuable part of her approach is how open and receptive she is to clients needs and tastes, doing everything she can to help get even the most indecisive person to a happy end result and across the finish line.

I always look forward to the project where Mimi is going to be involved because I know that the outcome will be so much greater and so much more efficient than if I had tried to do it myself.

Our building owners clients enjoy working with her because she leaves her personal opinions behind to truly serve the client in achieving their vision while also meeting constraints of budget space and time.

mcl studio is not a pushy design group and not a huge institutional firm intent on plowing through a job – in mcl studio we have a hands-on partner to turn to, and it is almost like having a design department, but better. Mimi helps us solve problems big and small and creates great aesthetic results while maintaining continuity and consistency across our portfolio.”

“Prognosis: Smashing” by Kathleen Nicholson Webber, Philadelphia Inquirer Home & Design, June 3, 2011

Doctors and Dentists seek out those other pros, Designers, to bring color, calm, and comfort into their offices…

And although hospitals have invested in good design for many years now, individual medical professionals are giving aesthetics a second opinion, too, recognizing that a well-designed space can calm nerves and ease anxiety – as well as attract new patients. That means…
