Valérie Marcus, IIDA, Owner and Lead Designer
Hailing from France, Valérie Marcus brings over twenty years of international design experience to her clients. Valérie began her career working on several commercial and residential projects along the French Riviera. Wanting to experience the excitement of a different culture, Valérie relocated to the United States in 1997 where she continued to work for a well-known interior design studio for several years before opening VM Concept in Scottsdale, Arizona. Valérie’s European heritage is infused throughout her designs and her trademark is a self-assured approach to each and every commission. Her discriminating clients allow her the luxury to personalize their projects with some of the most exquisite materials available on the market. Valérie’s versatility in material selection includes using authentic European products, both reclaimed and new; to create a unique space that reflects the personality and style of her client. The resulting design is distinctive and timeless reflecting her artful use and amicable blend of detail, scale, texture, light and proportion. Valérie believes, “The true beauty of exceptional spaces is how they are designed to fit the style and personalities of the people who live in them.” She also believes that any great design must translate into comfort, function and the ability for the homeowner to experience “joie de vivre” (“joy of living”). Valérie is well known for her tailored, sophisticated contemporary and old world interiors to her high-end clientele, because of this, her commissions have been very well received and published in numerous periodicals across the country.
Valérie takes pride in the diversity and versatility of her designs:
