I work with Monica professionally and when it was time to do my own kitchen there was no other choice but Monica.... She is collaborative and takes the time to think through each detail... Knowledgeable in many style ascetics and is wonderful at pulling a whole layer of finishes together to make the space... She is detailed on usability/ function, takes the time to learn exactly how you live/ work to make sure the space fits your lifestyle... Her product lines are of quality and many options for price points.... I recommend/ refer her often and will always be the person I call on for myself or my clients....

Monica is the most amazing person I've ever had the pleasure to work with. She has such a positive energy and was SO helpful. I was to rely on her to help me with cabinet and countertop selections and she went over and above an expectations I had. I called Monica for advice in every area of house planning I had. I am very impressed with Monica and would HIGHLY recommend 929 Design!

It has been a pleasure working with Monica and Kayla at 929 Design on my kitchen remodel. After waiting 20 years to renovate the kitchen in my 1930’s home, I was nervous about the process and expense. Luckily, a friend recommended Monica and I called for a meeting where we discussed my ‘wish list’. Their creative design addressed all of my requests and solved a number of space issues in my small kitchen. Monica and Kayla’s professional attitudes, attention to detail and follow-through were much appreciated. I am thrilled to finally have the kitchen of my dreams!

My husband and I have collaborated on many projects over the years with Monica/929 Design. She is razor sharp, cutting edge with her designs and uber professional. My husband is a woodworker/contractor and he can dream some really crazy, over the top stuff. Monica can pull it from his brain and lay it down in a design and make it beautiful, practical and functional. Her work is easy to understand, estimate and build from. We have worked with her on everything from new construction to historical renovations. She is top notch at what she does and I look forward to working with her on every project.

I have a fabulously beautiful kitchen and bath thanks to Monica at 929 Design. Even before we had closed on this house, Monica provided us with a preliminary design and cost quote. This made us feel more comfortable in making the purchase knowing we would be undertaking a major remodel. Monica completely gutted the kitchen and bath, redoing the design to one that fit our needs and looked beautiful. With the exception of one, I was very happy with the subcontractors she had on site. All were conscientious and neat. We had a strict budget and tight deadline, and both were adhered to. The custom cabinets Monica supplied in our kitchen are exceptional. I wanted a place for my specialty tools, and pull outs and drawers for ease of use. I got more than I even knew I needed. Monica was easy to work with and available to me when needed. We could not have been able to undertake this project without Monica.

929 Design helped me design a really awesome bar for my basement. They were super easy to work with and can’t wait to work with 929 in the near future!
