Marlena Carson

Marlena Design Group is a creative and full-service interior design team that helps plan, build, decorate, design, and transform a space. Whether your project is a new build, remodel, or home décor, Marlena Design Group can offer you peace of mind with interior design expertise, thorough methods, and custom project packages.

Marlena Carson, the owner, has been doing interior design for over 15 years and has had her own company for five years. A Colorado native, and a graduate of the Art Institute of Colorado with a BA in Interior Design, Carson began her career at an architectural lighting firm, where she quickly realized her particular mastery of lighting design. From there she moved into luxury showrooms and honed her eye for details and quality materials.

She has built a strong partnership with the local ASID chapter and is well respected in the design community. It was a natural progression to start her own company. Another partnership Carson is excited to be part of is the Greater Glendale Chamber of Commerce. “It was perfect timing for me to join the Chamber,” said Carson. “The Glendale community has a special place in my heart and I am so excited to reconnect and be a part of this group. All of the events have been really fun and everyone is super nice and supportive.”

Marlena Design Group has experience with designing everything you can imagine inside the home from kitchen and baths to any living space. “We do everything from simple paint consultations all the way up to assisting our clients to build custom homes,” said Carson. “And we do everything in between such as remodels, furniture packages, home décor packages that include artwork, accessories, rugs, lighting, and all the pretty stuff.”

Creating beautiful and custom spaces that meet and exceed their client’s highest expectations is the p

riority and goal. Marlena Design Group strives to personalize the homes of the clients whose lives they are inspired by.

Marlena Design Group (ASID, NKBA, CCE) consists of creative talents pulled from the industries of interior design, construction, and personal styling. They combine a wide variety of experiences and specialties to create fresh, custom interiors for residential and commercial spaces.

The first step in the process is to schedule a free phone call that may last 20 or 30 minutes. This allows Carson to get a better idea of what the needs, expectations, and budget are. “We hear a lot of different topics like moving into a new house or we have lived in this house for a really long time so we’re ready to remodel, or other life circumstances like a flood or fire,” said Carson. Usually there is something in someone’s life that is changing which prompts them to reach out to an interior designer. They are also most likely too busy to take on the project themselves.”

New builds, remodels, and home additions are Marlena Design Group’s passion. They assist homeowners, builders, and investors with any construction project. They help design, select, specify, and manage all interior and exterior finishes for your project. “I am going to take the time to get to know my clients and get to know their family,” said Carson. “I want to find out how they live and also find out what they like and don’t like stylistically and what color palettes they love. If I am working with partners or a pair of homeowners, I am getting to know them individually and literally marrying their two styles together. I am putting both of their personalities into their space.”

Home decor is a vital part of any good interior design. Marlena Design Group has access to over 200 vendors that include upholstery, case goods, lighting, textiles, wall finishes, window treatments, and accessory packages for any home or office.

They also help execute your kitchen and bath project. Marlena Design Group has many years of training in cabinets, appliances, countertops, plumbing, tile, hardware, and waterproofing systems.

Once the initial meet and greet is complete, the process remains simple. The client provides photos and measurements of their space and Marlena Design Group will design a quiz and a questionnaire to get a feel for your preferred style and color palette. They will then curate a list of suggestions for furniture, rugs, and accessories. You will receive a scaled floor plan that includes the new furniture layout and 3D room renderings with instructions on where to place all the new items, all sent via email.

Marlena Design Group will have a booth for the seventh year in a row at the Colorado Garden and Home Show from February 24, 2024, to March 3, 2024. Marlena Design Group attracts 40% of her business from people who visit the booth. For more information, visit www.colorado
