"Quite simply, Mimi Levitan is the best. We have worked with many designers and decorators, but none as talented, creative, and perceptive as Mimi. Her approach is practical and precise. Her attention to detail is incredible. She has an uncanny ability to personalize every project, no matter the scope. She brings to her clients a unique sense of concern for individual taste and preference. But she also has that rare ability to clarify what will work, and why. She has made each of our homes so very special

"From our first meeting, I knew I met the person who could resolve all of my design issues and insecurities about interior design. Her ideas are innovative and creative, and she has always worked within my budget and prefererences, including my partiality to certain colors and design criteria. Having since completed kitchen and bath renovations in both of my residences, she has a keen ability to hire and get along with some of the best general contractors and additional tradespeople. She keeps them moving along toward project completion, and that is an art form she has mastered!. She has always kept my projects at budget, and stress free, and the results are fabulous!"
Linda Kroll, Boca Raton, Florida and Long Beach, New York
"I have had the good fortune of working with Mimi Levitan on several design and construction projects for my home. I am "design challenged" and a very busy professional with no time to shop. She made the design process very easy and pain free for me. After selecting a multitude of furniture, furnishings, fabrics and construction finishes. I only had to spend a short time making choices, all of which concluded in a beautiful, cohesive design. The work was always completed in a timely manner. Any issues that arose during the projects were handled in a very professional manner, and corrected to my satisfaction. Mimi did an excellent job working within our pre-determined budget, and most projects were completed within the budget without much diversion. Her designs were completed with regard to space efficiency, and were aesttically very beautiful. I am so happy with the outcome of the designs, colors, and overall style of each room. Mimi did a beautiful job and I really love my home!"

" Mimi Levitan has undertaken a number of projects for me in recent years, including the complete redesign and remodeling of most of the interior of my home- kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. I entrusted Mimi with creating my living space, and have been extremely satisfied with the results. She is a professional and highly competent designer and project manager. The spaces that she created for me are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. She listened carefully to my needs and wants, and executed perfectly. Her skill as a project manager was very important due to my personal time constraints, and projects were completed timely and on budget. It is a pleasure to work with Mimi, and I believe that anyone would be fortunate to work with her in the same capacity."
Update: "Since 2010, MJL has undertaken a number of interior residential remodel projects for me. Most recently, MJL redesigned the entire floor plan and interior spaces of my retirement home to suit my individual needs and tastes. In addition to creatively redesigning the interior space, the project, which was budgeted over $100,000, included interviewing contractors, comparing bids, managing the construction, ordering materials, fixtures, appliances, cabinetry, etc, and completing the design with both existing and new furniture and furnishings. The resulting living space is functional, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. MJL is highly competent, professional, and a pleasure to work with. The project, which spanned approximately a year from start to finish, was completed on time, no significant budget surprises, and was actually accomplished via a long distance, with Mimi residing in NYC and the project undertaking in Highland, Illinois. With several visits, Fedex and email, the project was completed as if she were in the next town over."

"MJL Design has been one of the best relationships of my "Home-Creating" life. I wish I had known of them when building , renovating, and decorating in the past. Going forward, I am absolutely branded to Mimi Levitan and her team. Mimi comes into a home and immediately gathers critical information about the client and the environ, and then the creativity and the magic begin. With a sense of your style and comfort level, in all areas - including financial - Mimi's mind and talent explode, and the rest is the perfect execution of your project. The best part about MJL Design is that long after the project is complete, you can call, send a photo, text or email any design or decorating question, and Mimi quickly gets back with a solution. I call her My Designer on Demand - without and appointment! It is a pleasure to recommend excellence.

She is creative, with an excellent design sense for color and proportion, Personally, she was a joy to work with! She is very professional, listens well, and was responsive to my ideas! I will definately use Mimi again!
Suellyn Bache, Delray Beach, Florida
" I had a great time working with Mimi on re-decorating my small NYC apartment. Within minutes of her walking in, she made significant improvements to my space! She is wonderful to work with, and it is clear that she really knows interior design/decorating and is able to work with people's specific tastes/styles. She answered all questions honestly and used the perfect amount of "push-back". I am someone who feels very overwhelmed with these types of things, and after working with Mimi on a consultation basis, I feel like I have a complete and manageable plan. I would definately use her again!
Randi Weinberger, New York City, New York
" I have worked with Mimi for over 10 years on many of her different projects, and have also contracted her as a design consultant on many of our more demanding in-house projects. I have found Mimi to be professional, organized, and detail oriented. She is a solid designer and space planner, and with her leadership and input, we know the client will have a "no - regrets "project. She understands construction, and can spot pitfalls before they are overlooked. As not just the designer, but as project manager, she has as a knack for mediation between all trades involved, which is undeniable in the successful completion of a project, Mimi has great client rapport, always delivers, and exceeds with far more than the client expects. She works until she gets the job done.".
