” Mary Cox the designer of “a Little Accent” is truly one of the most professional talented people I have had the pleasure to work with. I am not comfortable with color or design and Mary has the unique capability of capturing what her client’s needs are and putting them into action. She has terrific interpersonal skills that allow her to communicate design without offending or insulting the client. I would also like to say that she is extremely punctual in returning calls and arriving for scheduled appointments; she respects your time! I will recommend Mary to anyone who wishes quality creative work with a touch of class.

” I am a closet designer, but wanted an interior design specialist to create my master bathroom oasis for us. I turned to Mary Cox for help with the project. Mary is an exceptional designer! She listens carefully to client needs’ and vision, then turns their dreams into an amazing space. She is a consummate professional, who is a great project manager. I would hire her again in a New York minute for any additional spaces in my home!

“ After deciding to remodel our house, we knew we needed help choosing flooring, paint colors and materials, but it took a long time to find a designer that we bonded with. I was impressed with Mary from the first phone call – she listened to our likes and dislikes and instantly had ideas and suggestions. Our consultations meetings produced ideas and color palettes that were perfect for our style. Working with A Little Accent has been fun and a pleasure and we look forward to using them again in the future.

” We have been working with Mary on the remodel of our home in Clyde Hill, and it has been a delightful experience. Mary is a designer that really listens–she works to understand our concept, and guides us in the right direction to find what we need, and adds much needed creativity and expertise. Mary is gracious and thoughtful, and she has made what can be a difficult process to maneuver much more fun. Mary is extremely creative, and an “outside the box” thinker, which I really appreciate. I am grateful for all of her help. ”

After Lisa & Kurt recent remodel they wrote this..
“The Team at A Little Accent did an amazing job for us.
From the beginning when we sat down to discuss what we wanted to the end when we moved back into our lovely new space, they were there for us, listening and guiding us the entire way without being pushy, overbearing or intrusive. When initially discussing our dream space with Mary, she listened and took in our ideas and came back with the perfect plan. She helped guide us in our choices the whole while keeping in mind our desire to have an open and integrated kitchen/living space. Her amazing sense of color only added to the final product which is everything and more than we could have hoped for. Working with the team at A Little Accent was a pleasure and something we look forward to doing again.”

— Cindy & Tim Reis, Redmond, Washington
