“We are so happy with everything; you have truly turned our house into ‘our home.’ You incorporated our ideas into a color scheme and design that utilized some of our existing furniture and elements and new pieces. Thank you for designing a home we can be proud of!”

Bill and Jackie Kalbas

When it came time to redecorate our home recently, we selected Mere’ Designs. Selecting this firm was one of the best decisions we made since moving to Charlotte five years ago. Lisa Spencer is terrific. She knows what she is doing, She listens and pays attention to her customer’s likes and dislikes. She is easy to work with, and heads a great team of professionals who get the job done right. With all that said we have one new problem, we can’t decide which room we like the best. Well done Lisa, and thank you!
