4000 sq ft in Scottsdale, AZ – 2014

Valerie is the best! I met her approximately 10 years ago as I was building a 7000 sq. ft. home in North Scottsdale. I used her design services during the construction process as well as for furnishings when the home was completed. When I eventually sold the home, it sold in 1 month during a slow market, due in part, I feel, to the finishes Valerie helped me choose. I am now using her services again to help decorate my new home and LOVE what she has done so far! I recommend her highly!  




Toni Dolby – 2013

Valerie is a professional in the true sense of the word. She listens and brings ideas to the table which are truly innovative yet within budget. Her project management skills are detailed and ensure schedules are kept. We started with the kitchen and loved her work so much we expanded to the family room, bedroom, office, and TV room. We are now going to take her skills outside for the large patio and outdoor bar/kitchen. We would highly recommend Valerie.

7500 sq ft in Paradise Valley, AZ – 2013

I have worked with Valerie Marcus and VM Concept on our French inspired home. Valerie is just wonderful with redesign of hard surfaces and layout and tweaking original design. Valerie worked tirelessly on our project for over two years and would except nothing but perfection. Our home is a masterpiece, although livable and truly warm. Valerie is versatile and works well with contractors on all levels. We worked through design/build and interiors throughout the project. It was a terrifically fun project and the results…astounding! Valerie and her family have become wonderful personal friends of ours and we were so happy with her work/ethic that we have re-hired her to work with us on our newest project… You could not ask for a better designer, with an amazing eye for detail and breadth of understanding! You will be delighted with Valerie’s talent and candor! Search no further!!  




Mr. & Mrs. Steve Gold – 2012

Valerie, I am so excited to find you on this site! Valerie Marcus of VM Concept and Design has done the design work in 2 of our homes. Our home in Troon, Scottsdale is a soft contemporary that was so boring and drab, you know, the white walls, high ceilings, good architecture, but no personality or warmth. I sat looking at those white walls for 3 years before meeting Valerie. As a businesswoman, I must have reliable and total attention to my projects. Well…Valerie not only met but exceeded my expectations! Her design work is magnificent. But, what is truly remarkable is her attention to detail and management jof her projects. Her character is beyond reproach! As for my Scottsdale home, it was transformed from a stark and boring home to a palatial estate. I kid you not. It is rich and sumptuous but is warm and welcoming.   We then bought a second home in Park City. This is a log home that is rich with character but basically looked like every photo of what a ski chalet looks like. This look is okay but what was in store for me was a huge surprise. Valerie came in and transformed our log cabin into another dream home for us. It is cozy and warm. The home cocoons you! On a snowy day with fireplaces roaring, it is wonderful to sink into the lush fabrics and leathers. I wiggle my toes in the plush carpeting. The warmth and coziness of our cabin is such that our guests often overstay their welcome! If you don’t believe me, ask Valerie for my phone number, I would happy to tell you about my experience with VM Concept. Valerie Marcus has a reputation beyond reproach. You will know this from the first moment you meet. Valerie, thank you for making my dream homes come to life. I am so very happy with you and all that you have done.  




A Google User – 2012

What a find Valerie Marcus has been for us! Valerie’s talent of getting to know us and our taste works famously with her eclectic talent as a interior designer. She has incredible attention to detail, knowledge of not only the design industry, but the building industry as well. We were amazed how she was able to direct our General Contractor during our renovation project, and offered constructive, critical input to allow the project to run smoothly. Her expertise aided in the completion of a fantastic renovation. Valerie did such a great job on our home in AZ, we just simply had to have her design another home of ours out of State. Now we have two fabulous homes! Simply put, VM Concept is the best!

Valerie Marcus at VM Concept is an outstanding designer and professional.  She is creative, exacting, budget conscious, and has a wealth of high end experience and European design knowledge.  I have complete confidence in her completing projects on time and on budget and the result is always above my expectation.  




Mindiosborn – 2011

Amazing, amazing, amazing. VM Concept transformed my boring bedroom into a wonderland that personified my personality to a tee. Its talent in spatial reconfiguration taking close consideration of what suits their client’s needs and budgets is unbelievable. Most interior designers I have dealt with jam their wants and tastes down their client’s throats. Valerie took my unique personality and designed a room that is more me than me. It is my respite from the daily trials and tribulations that all of us face and I look forward to tackling my next project in my home with her. Brava!!!    




Sondra Brooks – 2012

  I’ve worked with Valerie twice, and was thoroughly pleased. I think few people would have had the understanding of what I was looking for like she did. Also, she provided a great deal of supervision of the work being done. What was most impressive to me, was how she knew my tastes so well that she could make design decisions on my behalf without my having to be involved in every detail. Working with her was probably as worry-free as a redecorating or design process can be.  




Marietroberts – 2011

  Valerie Marcus from VM concept was very professional .She remodeled our 2 story townhouse from top to bottom with an elegant contemporain style. Her talent, friendliness and impeccable communication made this remodeling so easy for us. She listened to us, found what we really liked and her European flair did the rest.  She met our deadline and we were able to move back into an outstanding home, when we came back from overseas. Working with Valerie was a very enjoyable experience. My husband and I, for sure, will recommend Valerie and her company to our friends and working relationships…..and anybody we meet. We then bought a second home in Park City. This is a log home that is rich with character but basically looked like every photo of what a ski chalet looks like. This look is okay but what was in store for me was a huge surprise. Valerie came in and transformed our log cabin into another dream home for us. It is cozy and warm. The home cocoons you!

Mr. &  Mrs. Thaine Fischer 

In 2006 VM Concepts did a residential home for us in the Phoenix / Biltmore area. Valerie’s designs and finishes allowed us to sell the home for a premium in 2008 even after the Phoenix AZ real estate marked became depressed. This experience led us to hire VM Concepts again to remodel an historic building in Ogden UT for a New Orleans style restaurant. Again her input, designs and fabrics exceeded our expectations.

Our other contractors enjoyed working with her and she is an asset to any Projects team.
