What People Have To Say:

​ "I'm a Realtor who was considering selling my home in the Oak Forest area. To attract buyers, I realized my living room needed an update. Marilyn did a great job, and stayed within my budget and time frame. It felt like being in a T.V. home make over reality show! Marilyn's talents can benefit all sellers, investors and buyers as well. She also shoots great "after" photos to upload to your listing."

Lisa Cloud - Realtor


"Marilyn has worked with us on our home since it's inception, located in Hedwig Village, about fifteen (15) years ago. She's done everything from painting designs on our walls, purchasing fine furniture, selecting fabrics, having our important seating reupholsterd and designing upscale dried florals which have held up beautifly. We trust her and work with her every year. We've been very satisfied with the outcome. Marilyn is honest, keeps within budget and timeframes." 

Dr. and Mrs. K.


"Marilyn has a great eye for detail while bringing an unexpected twist to a design. She is a pleasure to work with."

Courtney G.


"I worked with Marilyn for over a decade. I originally bought items at her Design Shop and later hired her as my Jr. Designer. She is very pleasant to work with and will not waste your time. She is excellent to collaborate with on a project as she comes to Design naturally and has a great sense of color and style. She knows a lot about Antiques but she also is perfectly at home with Contemporary and Modern Design. I purchased a lot of original contemporary art and antiques from her design shop so she has good resourses and a "nose" for finding anything needed. She has not only recieved a degree in design, she also studied Decorative Arts in Paris, France. Tradespeople respect her and she makes sure the job is done correctly.  I highly recommend her."

"Just when you think you've had enough of the creative process and are willing to settle on one concept, reward yourself with patience, step back and contact Marilyn Davenport. Her design theory and execution exhibit the highest degree of professionalism but it is her uncanny communicative skills that make her an easy recommendation. Clearly articulating conceptual ideas while paying the utmost attention to the client's goal ensures your satisfaction."

"Marilyn uses her creativity in everything she does. I highly recommend her for any creative needs."

Holly Chervnsik - Web Design & Graphics 

​"Marilyn is one of those amazing creative individuals who improves anything she touches. She has worked with me on my home in a Master Planned Community and many of my professional friends to transform their boring homes into show places "Wows" I've met and dated many ladies who thought they were experts in decorating homes, but Marilyn made them all look like first graders! The reasonable fees that Marilyn charged converted my home into something out of Architectral Digest! Don't waste your time watching decorating shows or with sales people in furniture stores or shopping with well-intentioned lady friends....This Lady has real talent. Extemely creative and reliable."

Paul Timmothy - Executive

"I first met Marilyn through the Interior Design field over 15 years ago. She is very talented and can put together any range of looks from Modern: paired down and sleek to very Tradtional and any place in between. Eclectic is her favorite I believe. Her home and garden were chosen for her neighborhood home and garden tour in Garden Oaks. She has also done renovations and worked as a contractor or with contractors. She works with all types of clientele on every budget. People should understand that a designer like Marilyn will work with you - if you can only afford to do one room at a time - that is no problem for Marilyn. She finds unique one of a kind pieces for your enviornment at resonable prices that will be worth more money with time - investment pieces that create a very unique, personalized and rich look. She makes you proud and excited about your living space."
