Welcome to our studio! Our clients work with us for our design aesthetic and ability to make each project unique. Our process also provides our clients with a fixed-cost fee, which means you'll know the final bill before the project even begins.
However, our method still allows for flexibility once the project is underway. At House Crush, design and customer communication are fluid and consistent. We believe you should know that your ideas and priorities are being heard, that your budget will contain no surprises, and that your home won't look like anyone else's!

"Marika and her House Crush team were so organized, easy-going, and approachable. We were an active part throughout the process and felt confident to have House Crush design and make decisions that would best suit the needs of our family. Marika kept a tight timeline, and all of the team members were professional and respectful, and did phenomenal work. Their creative design captured our vision, offering ideas and solutions that were both stunning and functional!"
