Valerie Marcus creates designs based on the personal preferences of her clients, reflecting their lifestyle and tastes. She never duplicates a design. For a soft contemporary look, Valerie uses a palette of colors that complement each another in a sleek, sophisticated, yet comfortable fashion. These transitional designs are welcoming and warm, and typically showcase a mixture of textures including very rich fabrics, silks, stainless steel, wood and stone. Valerie softens the hard planes of contemporary with the curves and decorative elements of a transitional style. Soft contemporary designs are a functional, exciting living space, which translates into easy, relaxed lifestyles.
