Accolades

“Martine Baker is an excellent interior designer/decorator.  She has helped us on many occasions in three different homes.  We always say that hiring Martine to negotiate furniture selection and placement of all other design components is a lot more fun than going to marriage counseling.  She listens to both of us and does now allow any “bulldozing.”  We love her aesthetic and fresh ideas.  She is really good at merging furniture styles and tastes and figuring out placement of artwork and knick-knacks.  Unlike a lot of decorators, she pays attention to your budget and will suggest “high-end” and “low-end” possibilities. It is a joy to work with Martine.”

– Kathy Healey and Steve Haskell, Ashland OR


“Working with Martine was easy and enjoyable.  I was impressed with her unique ability to find the right solutions to my decorating needs based on my budget.  Her great eye and her attention to detail transformed my space into a place I could truly call home.  I highly recommend Martine!”  

-Tim Heath, Portland OR


“Taking those first steps to change my home or work environment holds a mixture of excitement and fear for me. Having Martine beside me made all the difference. Her consummate skills and sense of humor and adventure created a delightfully safe space where together we created the palette and details that supported my inner artist. Now, surrounded by mango and grape, textured silk and silver sage, I’m blissfully grateful and so is my budget. Martine has a gift of efficiency with resources(she stays within your budget). She consistently proves herself an elegant editor, amazing color intuitive and over-all design angel.”

-Rebecca McLennan, Ashland OR


“Martine was able to tune into just what it was we were looking for. There was an almost mystical quality to the way she worked with us. She took what appeared to be a daunting task and made it simple for us.”

-Donna and Dick Corrigan, Ashland, Oregon


“Elegance, Grace and warmth are words that come to mind when I think of Martine Baker’s style. Her flair for creating simple flowing spaces immediately makes a house home and a place of business more compelling.”

-Carolyn Brafford, Ashland OR


“Martine has graced us three times with her spot on guidance in artistic decision making. The first time she helped us transform our home in the woods with a beautiful ocean painting (which she painted), colors, texture and a few new pieces of furniture.  The second time she helped us as we built a customized town house from the ground up. Martine guided us carefully through a myriad of decisions, kept within our budget, and helped us to stay sane. We lived in and loved everything about it, including a new painting she created, for six years. Finally we integrated it all in our newly remodeled cottage. I cannot imagine moving anywhere without consulting with Martine. Peter and I have very different tastes, and have always felt understood By Martine. We admire her uncanny ability to help us create a home we love being in together and sharing with family and friends.”
